The 31-year-old took to Twitter this morning to share the happy news.She tweeted: “So Happy!!! ….. Never denied the news, but I was always protecting it!! Had scan & all checks are fine…..Baby number 4 is on its way.”
Coleen and husband Wayne, also 31, are already parents to three boys: Klay, seven, four-year-old Kai and Kit, one.
The news comes after Coleen recently hit out at body shamers who had written nasty comments about her online after pictures emerged of her in a bikini on holiday.”It doesn’t bother me. I have been in the public eye for a long time now so it doesn’t affect me,” Coleen told Mail Online.
“It would hurt me if it came from someone that’s important to me like friends or family but the people who are criticising me are probably a lot heavier than I am so it doesn’t bother me anymore,” she added.
“There’s probably someone who is 20 stone who is judging me online so I just ignore it. I don’t understand why someone would make negative comments criticising someone’s body.”It used to annoy me when I was younger but I learned to just ignore it. It’s not worth it.”
In a recent interview, Coleen referenced having another child and said she would like a baby girl.
Speaking to new! magazine, she said: “I can imagine having a girl. I’ve got a massive family so I’m around girls as well as having boys myself.
“I’m not desperate, but a girl would be nice as part of the family.”
The mother-of-three also insisted that she wasn’t trying to have a baby at the moment: “I’d never say never but I’ve got my hands full at the minute.”
