he’s due to give birth to her third child next month, and as Coleen Rooney reaches the final stages of her pregnancy she’s told pals she’s looking forward to some much-needed rest over Christmas.

TAKING TIME OUT
A source says: âœUsually Coleen is manic in December, prepping for Christmas and planning different festive activities with the boys, but this year she’s outsourced as much as possible. She hired decorators to help with the house and tree, and her parents are taking the kids on day trips to give her a rest. She’s trying not to plan too much socially and has even cancelled a couple of things. She wants a chilled Christmas Day, so has carefully chosen presents that she knows the boys will really love playing with in the morning, then she’ll take them to her parents for lunch when Wayne has to leave for training.â
One appointment Coleen did keep was a fundraising visit to the Claire House Children’s Hospice near her native Liverpool at the beginning of the month, where she shared a snap of herself making a

Pals say while Coleen can’t wait to meet her new baby, she is determined she’ll shape up in time for her 30 th birthday celebrations in April.
A source says: âœColeen is a dedicated mum, but wants a huge celebration when she turns 30 and to look her best for it. She knows April isn’t far away, but is convinced she can juggle her busy family life with intense workouts.â Coleen – who has been with Wayne,
30, for 13 years – has previously talked about adding a girl to their brood, saying: âœI’d love a girl because it would complete the family.â And a source says that while the couple – who have decided to keep the baby’s sex a surprise – just want the baby to be healthy, Coleen has already prepared a long list of girls’ names.
The insider adds: âœShe’s looking at lots of names beginning with K to keep up with tradition.
She can’t wait for her new arrival.â
