Coleen Rooney has apparently created a set of loose ‘guidelines’ for husband Wayne to follow as they work on getting their marriage back on track.
According to Heat magazine, the pregnant star, 31, has put forward a handful of suggestions to her footballer husband following his recent drink-driving arrest in another woman’s car.
These ‘guidelines’ reportedly include Wayne, also 31, cutting down on alcohol and spending more time together as a family.
That apparently includes going away on holiday together more often, getting out with their friends more regularly, and ensuring they have quality fun time as a couple.
An insider claimed: “Deep down, Coleen doesn’t want to divorce Wayne.
“She loves him and thinks it’s best for the boys that they stay together. And there’s the unborn baby, too.
“She’s suggested some guidelines she thinks will help the marriage, and she wants Wayne to stick to them.”
Coleen and Wayne are parents to sons Kai, seven, Klay, four, and one-year-old Kit.
They announced in August that a fourth child was on the way.
Of course, there’s zero word on whether any of this is actually true as Coleen has kept mum since Wayne’s arrest at the start of September.
The only comment she has made publicly was a sarcastic Twitter message urging people not to believe everything they read.
Posted on September 5, it said: “Would love to meet all these so called friends of mine who know me so well… I was being sarcastic towards all these great sources the press have… who I have probably never met in my life!
“I have the best friends.”
She’s also warned paparazzi snappers to leave her alone, tweeting on September 3: “Please can photographers have respect and stop following me with my three children in the car…. it’s dangerous and I’ve had enough.”
Wayne was arrested in the early hours of September 1 while driving a VW Beetle belonging to office worker Laura Simpson, 29, who was in the passenger seat.
He appeared at Stockport Magistrates’ Court on September 18 and pleaded guilty to a drink-driving charge.
The judge handed him a two-year driving ban and 100 hours of unpaid charity work as part of a 12-month community order.
Breaking his silence on the incident, Wayne released a statement afterwards in which he apologised to his family, friends and fans.
“Following today’s court hearing I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong,” he said.”
“I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC.
“Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.
“Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.”
Coleen was said to be on holiday at the time of Wayne’s arrest and returned home to confront him.
According to The Sun on Sunday, former England captain Wayne privately told Coleen nothing happened with Laura and he was just helping her out by giving her a lift home.
An insider alleged: “Wayne has pleaded his innocence of doing anything with Laura and told Coleen he will do anything to keep the family together.
“He has told her that she and the kids are his world.”
Laura, however, has told MailOnline she shared a kiss with Wayne after they met on a night out and said she believed they would have slept together if police had not stopped the car.
“We had a kiss, a hug and some banter, harmless fun. I’m not a marriage wrecker,” she said.
“I can understand [Coleen] being mad with [Wayne] over the arrest. That was stupid and, on reflection, he should never have driven my car, but he didn’t seem to be over the limit.
“But she can’t blame him for anything that happened with me, because nothing did really – although we would’ve ended up [sleeping together], no doubt.”
Coleen, meanwhile, has kept a dignified silence over Laura…
