Wayne and Coleen Rooney have celebrated their sons starting school in their new home of Washington D.C.

The family relocated to the States during the summer after footballer Wayne, 32, signed a contract with Washington’s D.C. United earlier this year.

Both Wayne and Coleen took to Instagram on Monday to share a snap of their three eldest boys in their school uniform as they prepared for their big day at their new school.

The photo sees Kit, two, sporting a yellow t-shirt and black joggers while Klay, five, and Kai, eight, wore matching blue and grey uniforms as they all smiled for the camera.

Coleen, 32, captioned the post: “First day at school for my boys in America.”

Wayne shared the same photo to his Instagram alongside the caption: “First day at school in Washington for my boys.”

Earlier in the day, Coleen had shared a sweet family photo with all four of their sons, including seven-month-old Cass, as they reunited in America.

But Coleen revealed they struggled to get all four boys to cooperate to get the family snap!

Coleen joked: “Hard work to get a 📸 but at least we’re all back together!”

Wayne moved to the US earlier this summer to start his new career after he signed a deal with Major League Soccer (MLS) team D.C. United.

In July, Coleen confirmed that she and her four children would be moving to the states to be with Wayne.

Coleen told Reveal magazine the family will stay in D.C. for the duration of Wayne’s contract before returning home to the UK.

“We’re not going forever. He’s got the contract and then after that, we’re coming home – that’s the nice thing about it,” she said.

“While we’re there, we’ve got to enjoy it and make the most of it. People keep saying, ‘You might love it that much you don’t want to come home.’ But home for is home.

“I know I’ll definitely want to come back by the end of it.”

Last month, Coleen admitted she was worried about how her son Klay would cope with the move.

In an interview with The Mirror, Coleen said: “My eldest (Kai) is so outgoing he is fine – you put him anywhere and he will get on with it.”

Coleen said Klay “loves home and being comforted” and he was worried about what his friends would do without him.

Coleen added: “But my five year old loves home and being comforted. He said, ‘What are my friends going to do without me?’.

“But they are young enough to adapt to it – and there are so many school holidays anyway.”
