Coleen Rooney named as role model for businesswomen

Friday April 24, 2009

News she's expecting her first child with Wayne Rooney has kept Coleen Rooney in the headlines this month, but the 23-year-old was in the limelight for a different reason this week as she received an award celebrating her business acumen.
The expectant star, whose baby is due in October, picked up an ambassador trophy at an annual women in business awards ceremony In London. It's given yearly to a successful woman whose achievements and high profile are inspiring more young ladies to excel.
A series of modelling and magazine deals, plus sales from exercise videos and her autobiography, have helped Coleen - pictured with the founders of the awards - net a cool £8 million. The Liverpool lass has said she's ready to hold off on the work front to concentrate on being a mum, though, when the new baby arrives.
