16 APRIL 2009 Expectant Coleen Rooney and her footballer husband Wayne were faced with a dilemma when they learned Coleen's due date clashed with a key England World Cup qualifier. According to reports in the British press the pair may have found a way for the Manchester United striker to attend both the match and the arrival of his first child, though.
Pals of the couple have told the Sun 23-year-old Coleen – who is approximately 15 weeks pregnant - has consulted doctors about the possibility of having a caesarean birth slightly ahead of Wayne's October 10 commitment to play against the Ukraine. That would allow him to be at her side.
"Both of them are so excited about the birth," the newspaper reports a friend as saying. "But Coleen didn't want to be worrying about whether Wayne would be there or not – so she is being super-organised and has already pencilled in the date for the operation."
