Wayne’s 10-year an­niver­sary gift to Coleen

Wayne Rooney is de­ter­mined to treat his wife Coleen while they cel­e­brate a decade of mar­riage – as she insists he puts his fam­ily first

Child­hood sweet­hearts Wayne and Coleen Rooney, who first started dat­ing aged 16, saw their lives change for ever in 2003. That was when Wayne was cho­sen for the Eng­land football team, a move that rock­eted both of them to international fame at the ten­der age of 17.

That same year, Wayne got down on one knee in the un­likely set­ting of a lo­cal petrol sta­tion, ask­ing Coleen to marry him while bran­dish­ing a £46,000 ring.

The pair mar­ried five years later in a lav­ish £5 mil­lion cer­e­mony in Portofino, Italy, in front of 65 guests. Westlife, Coleen’s favourite band, per­formed at the four-day cel­e­bra­tions.

But 10 years of mar­riage to a mul­ti­mil­lion­aire foot­baller hasn’t all been plain sail­ing for Coleen, 32, with their re­la­tion­ship rocked by Wayne’s cheat­ing and par­ty­ing scan­dals.

Just last Septem­ber, Wayne, also 32, was ar­rested for driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence af­ter a night out in Cheshire, caught with an­other woman sit­ting with him in the car.

The woman, Laura Simp­son, 29, con­fessed that things might have gone fur­ther had they not been pulled over. It was yet an­other blow for the em­bat­tled Rooney mar­riage and, last Novem­ber, a then-preg­nant Coleen ad­mit­ted she and Wayne had spent time apart, say­ing, ‘I thought my mar­riage was at an end.’

But, de­spite the odds, the pair have re­mained to­gether and are proud par­ents to four boys – Kai, eight, Klay, five, Kit, two, and four-month-old Cass.

And, with their 10th an­niver­sary this week, on June 12, Wayne sees the mile­stone as an op­por­tu­nity to show Coleen how much she means to him.

‘It’s been one hell of a year for Wayne and Coleen. At times, their mar­riage has been al­most at break­ing point,’ re­veals our source.

‘Wayne feels that, once they have cel­e­brated 10 years to­gether as man and wife, they can wipe the slate clean. He will be pulling out all the stops to spoil Coleen and prove that he really does love her.’

With the spe­cial an­niver­sary be­ing the first they’ve ever spent to­gether – as foot­baller Wayne has been away for work for all the others – he is go­ing all out to
