"He weighed 7Ib 11.1/2 oz We''re all so happy and doing well. X (sic)," she wrote.

Coleen, who revealed over the weekend that she had passed her due date, was rumoured to have been taken to hospital on Saturday.

In other celebrity English soccer news, David Beckham's eldest son Brooklyn has trained at the junior academy of London club Queens Park Rangers and bookmakers are already offering short odds that the 14-year-old will emulate his father by playing for England.

QPR said on Twitter that he was training with them but had not officially joined their academy.

Beckham senior, who began his career by joining Manchester United's academy also at the age of 14, retired from the game last week after helping Paris St Germain to the French league title but now has a home in London.

Bookmakers are offering odds of 12-1 that Brooklyn will play for England but only 9-2 to play in the Premier League.

QPR were relegated from the Premier league this season.
