Coleen Rooney fuels rumours she's expecting twins

Well, this is very exciting!

Pregnant Coleen Rooney has set tongues wagging that she's expecting twins after sharing a photo of both blue and pink baby goodies.

The 31-year-old has been tight-lipped about her fourth pregnancy ever since she and husband Wayne, also 31, announced their baby news in August.

But her latest Instagram post has fuelled rumours there could be a double celebration in the Rooney household next year.

We revealed earlier this week how Coleen had received a gift pack from a placenta pill company, who will turn a mother's afterbirth into capsules for them to eat.

She shared a photo of the elegant box to Twitter back on Monday - but waited until now to reveal the contents with fans.

Ooh, the tension!

Well, it was certainly worth the wait, as fans have been left wondering if Coleen could be pregnant with twins.

Why, you ask? It's because the box contained two sets of booties, stuffed toys and tablets: one set in baby blue, the other in baby pink.

Others figured the two sets of baby goodies were because Coleen and Wayne have yet to announce their baby's sex - and told Coleen they were hopeful she'd be using the pink ones.

The couple are already parents to three sons: Kai, seven, Klay, four, and Kit, one.

Coleen announced her pregnancy on Twitter in August after weeks of speculation sparked by photos of her showing a rounded stomach at the beach.

"So Happy!!! ..... Never denied the news, but I was always protecting it!!" she tweeted. "Had scan & all checks are fine.....Baby number 4 is on its way."

Doesn't matter as long as healthy but... twins? So exciting for you! Hope you're okay

But she's yet to announce the baby's gender - or even say if she'll find out before the birth, having decided not to do so while pregnant with youngest son Kit.

"It just gives us that little bit more anticipation towards the end and when I’m in labour and wondering what it’s going to be," she told Daily Star at the time.

As Coleen already has three sons, plenty of fans have been saying they hope she gets a daughter this time around.

Coleen, meanwhile, has said while she'd love a little girl, she'd be just as happy with a fourth son.

"I'm not desperate, but a girl would be nice as part of the family," she told OK! magazine ahead of announcing her pregnancy.

Though, as she pointed out to Metro: "I don’t think you can try for a girl. You can try for a baby but whether you have a girl or a boy is a different matter."

This should be a joyous time for Coleen but it's likely been marred somewhat by husband Wayne's arrest in September.

He was pulled over by police in Cheshire in the early hours of September 1 after being caught driving another woman's car while she was in the passenger seat.

The Everton star pleaded guilty to a drink-driving charge and was handed a two-year driving ban and 100 hours of unpaid charity work as part of a 12-month community order.

Wayne issued a statement apologising for his "unforgivable lack of judgment" in driving while over the legal limit.

There have been several rumours swirling ever since about the state of the Rooneys marriage, given Wayne was in another woman's car.

However, neither Wayne nor Coleen has said anything on any of the speculation, with the only remark Coleen has made being a tweet warning people not to believe everything they read.
