Coleen Rooney has given birth to her fourth child with husband Wayne.

The 31-year-old announced on Twitter that they couple welcomed another little boy - Cass Mac - on Wednesday, weighing 1lb 10oz. Last week, she threw a lavish baby shower in Liverpool for family and friends.

The Rooneys personal lives has come under increased scrutiny in recent months as the Everton footballer (32) was revealed to have been three times the legal drink drive limit while at the wheel of another woman's car following a night out last year. Coleen was pregnant at the time.

After weeks of speculation about the status of their relationship and reports of an impending divorce, she uncharacteristically took to social media to explain her decision to stay with her husband of 10 years, adding she was having a "s**t time".

"I appreciate getting cared about, however, I am a strong person, I don't feel sorry for myself," she wrote in November.

"Also a few people are probably thinking (I) am stupid for staying in my marriage. I am not stupid, I know my own mind and it's something I want to try and work on."

The star told followers that earning a lot of money had advantages but "doesn't always make people happy".

"I know I would be fine on my own, with just me and my children, but I don't want to live like that, I want to try and continue our marriage and live as a family, because that's what I want to do," she said.

"I'm not saying everything is fine and forgotten about, but we are as good as can be at this point, I'm not the type of person to put a show on and say we're all loved-up....I'm just real."

Wayne issued a public apology to his family after he was sentenced to 100 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community order and paying the court costs associated with the case.
