All was not doom and gloom in Wayne Rooney’s household following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Southampton.
The Rooney couple welcomed their third child into the world on Sunday, and the Manchester United skipper made the announcement on his Twitter account during the wee hours of Monday.
Now our congratulations go out to the couple, but we are still trying hard to figure out the inspiration for the name of the newly-born.
So are a lot of people on Twitter.
Our gorgeous little boy arrived today. Kit Joseph Rooney. 8Ib 1oz. We are over the moon.

I like Wayne Rooney but what kind of name is ‘kit’ for a baby, if I was named that I’d be ruined by my pals

Wayne Rooney’s baby is obviously named after the first thing he saw in the changing room when someone asked him on the spot #kit

Rooney’s done well to give his kids sensible names: Kai, Klay and Kit. KKK. Nothing the tabloids can do with that. Nothing at all.
