Coleen Rooney Twitter posts are fake

Postings on Twitter purporting to be from Coleen Rooney and confirming pregnancy rumours are fake, a statement on her behalf has said.

There were reports that Rooney and her footballer husband Wayne are expecting their first child, which were not confirmed or denied.

A statement on Rooney's behalf said: "Coleen Rooney does not use Twitter and has not confirmed on it any rumours of her pregnancy."

Reports appeared over the weekend that the wife of the England and Manchester United star is three months pregnant, although rumours of a pregnancy have regularly circulated since the couple's spectacular wedding on the Italian Riviera last summer.
