The Real Wagatha Christie Story showed us a glimpse of family life, so how many children do Coleen and Wayne Rooney have? 

With the festive season just around the corner, the Rooneys will no doubt be on the hunt for the top Christmas toys and – like us – trying to make sense of the best black Friday toy deals to keep the little ones happy.  

And while fans were able to understand the full details of the Wagatha Christie trial once and for all in Coleen Rooney’s documentary on Disney+, some were keen to know more about life in the Rooney household. 

Read on for everything you need to know. 

How many kids do Coleen and Wayne Rooney have and what are their names?

Coleen and Wayne Rooney have four children and their names are Kai, 13, Klay, 10, Kit, seven, and Cass, five. The footballer's wife is said to be contemplating having a fifth child in the hope for a daughter. A source told Heat, "To be honest, she’s feeling a little panicked and anxious about turning 37. She can’t help feeling like she’s up against a clock and has to make a decision now before it’s too late. 

"The truth is, she’s never stopped thinking about having another baby and always said she wanted a girl. She used to joke that she wasn’t going to stop until she got one, but she’s also aware of how much she has on her plate with four very energetic and rowdy boys."

Kai is already following in his father's footballing footsteps, as the teen has already made headlines for his goalscoring attributes after signing for Manchester United in 2020. The youngster scored a staggering 56 goals and provided 28 assists in the 2021/22 season.

Klay is also a budding footballer having competed in various football tournaments wearing a Manchester United football kit. In April last year, Coleen shared a snap to her fans on Instagram and captioned it, "First tournament away. Good Luck Klay."

Meanwhile, Kit was spoilt on his seventh birthday when he received 17 bottles of Prime Energy Drink.

And youngest, Cass, had a Nickelodeon American animation The Loud House themed 5th birthday party after posing in his pyjamas in front of his mountain of presents and cake, he wore a black Nike basketball kit and red crocs for his party.

Coleen captioned the post, "He had the best time with his brothers and friends for his birthday. We love you Cass."
