Coleen: back in her happy place

There’s no place like Bar­ba­dos for this beach dweller

Heat (UK) - - This Week We’re Obsessed With... -

She’s turned her world up­side down in re­cent months, up­root­ing her fam­ily and mov­ing to the States to sup­port hus­band Wayne Rooney in his ca­reer, so you can’t blame Coleen Rooney for crav­ing some home com­forts. But while, for most of us, that means run­ning back to Mum’s house for Count­down and crum­pets, Coleen’s home away from home is slightly more ex­otic. Last week, the 32 year old packed up her fam­ily and headed to her Bar­ba­dos man­sion, her happy place, where she got back to ba­sics.

Coleen, Wayne, and their four sons – Kai, eight, Klay, five, Kit, two and Cass, seven months – left the UK for Wash­ing­ton DC ear­lier this sum­mer, af­ter the foot­baller was of­fered a £300,000-a-week deal to play for DC United. But while Wayne, 33, has been mak­ing a big im­pres­sion on the pitch, al­ready scor­ing more goals than any­one else on his team and see­ing them into the Ma­jor League play­offs, Coleen’s been openly strug­gling with her new nor­mal. She re­cently re­vealed, “It’s been a bit of a blur so far, get­ting ev­ery­thing sorted. I am sure it will all sink in soon.” But as she re­united with her par­ents Tony and Co­lette Mclough­lin last week, who had also popped over to the Caribbean is­land for some R&R, it was clear the WAG was back in her el­e­ment.

Let’s face it, it’s no sur­prise the mum of four feels at home on the white sandy beaches – af­ter all, this ain’t her first hol­i­day. As well as reg­u­larly re­turn­ing to Bar­ba­dos, the sun-lov­ing fam­ily are wellac­cus­tomed to a va­cay, and Coleen has got the for­mula sorted: sport a fab­u­lous Melissa Od­abash bikini (or two), cheer on her kids as they brave the wa­ter­sports, and never say no to a chilled glass of Pinot rosé.

W hile there’s no doubt the fam­ily were miss­ing Wayne, whose footie com­mit­ments held him back in Wash­ing­ton, they cer­tainly do look back to their best. Ah, there’s no place like home. n
