Coleen Rooney has revealed that eating capsules made out of her placenta following the birth of her youngest child made her feel energised and boosted her confidence.

The wife of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney had her placenta freeze-dried and transformed into tablets after welcoming her third son Kit in February.

The mum-of-three believes the process helped her shed pounds easier, boosted her milk production and stabilised her moods in the weeks after her son’s birth.

“They had a slightly metallic taste and they definitely made me feel energised,” Coleen told The Irish Mirror.

“I felt full of very positive energy and it helped with a number of pregnancy symptoms such as the production of milk. I slept really well and they helped to stabilise my weight after having Kit. Everyone has a different reaction but in my case they were great,” she said.

“I’m almost back to what I was before I had Kit but I do have a bit of a jelly belly. But there’s only so much you can do.”

Coleen is mum to three boys now Kai (6), Klay (3) and Kit (3 months), but said it was a tough adjustment to bring a new baby home in February.

“Klay didn’t really acknowledge him for the first day or so. He wouldn’t look at him. So we got him some presents, put them beside Kit and told him his new little brother had bought them. Since then they’ve been best friends. He cuddles and kisses them all the time,” she said.
