Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has shared a picture of him meeting his newborn son for the first time.Named Kit Joseph Rooney, Rooney’s third child with wife Coleen Rooney, was born on Sunday afternoon weighing 8Ib 1oz. The 30-year-old released the picture on his social networks today, telling his fans the family was preparing to take their new arrival home.
He said posting the picture: ‘Meeting Kit for the first time. Home time now’ Later, Coleen his wife posted a picture of Kit in a baby seat, with the caption “welcome to the world Kit” The Rooneys described themselves as “over the moon” at the latest addition.
The couple, who have been married since 2008, already have two boys Kai, six, and Klay, two and now Kit. Fans are suggesting some racism affiliations as the first initials of the kids put together spell KKK, America’s most notorious white supremacy group, the Ku Klux Klan.
The day prior to Kit’s birth, Wayne had hinted that it could almost be time, as the footballer shared a poignant throwback photograph of the family, taken after the birth of their second son Klay. The snap, taken in May 2013, showed the happy couple with their boys, including newborn Klay and their eldest son Kai. Along with the image, shared on Thursday, the footballer added: ‘#TBT – Family picture after Klay was born. Not long left until the new addition is here! #Family.’

Too comfy.’ And, earlier last week, eager father Wayne, shared another family photo, writing: ‘Not long left until our third child arrives, can’t wait to meet the new member of our family!’
