Wayne Rooney and his lovely wife will have to bust out the high chair, bibs and bottles once again, because the couple is pregnant with their second child. 

It's hard to keep a secret when the patriarch of a family also happens to be one of the most famous footballers in the world. 

After a few people found out the wonderful secret, Coleen Rooney took to Twitter to settle the rumors once and for all.

Not long after, reports came pouring in that the family would be adding one more to their bundle.

Via The Daily Mail, the child, who is expected in may, will be the couple's second. Their son Kai will be three in November. 

This is wonderful news for a couple who have been together for quite some time. They began dating when they were both just 16 and then enjoyed a five-year engagement before marrying in 2008. 

The two may just have an eye on more children, as noted by The Daily Mail

Coleen, who was brought up Catholic, has always spoken of her wish for a large family.

In an interview last year, she said: 'I'd like to have maybe three or four children. I’d be happy to be a full-time mum.'

Coleen has made quite a name for herself as a TV personality and columnist, writing articles for such publications as Closer and OK! Magazine

As for Wayne, he continues to be one of the most prolific strikers in football and is hoping to step into a new role as wise veteran to the younger English players on the national side. 

Congrats all around to the football power couple who will be growing by one beautiful baby sometime next year.
