Coleen Rooney stocks up on maternity wear

Coleen Rooney is no stranger to maternity clothes and nursing wear. The 26-year-old gave birth to her first child with footballer hubby Wayne in November 2009 and she certainly made sure she looked the part in the run-up to the birth and afterwards.

The fashionista loves to look her best and she made a big effort to ensure her image didn’t slide as she entered motherhood.

Latest shopping trip

She is expecting her second child in May next year and it seems she’s keen to stock up on new garments ASAP.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, the WAG has been out and about in search of more fashion items. It featured snaps of her wearing a fluffy tunic, leather jacket, leggings and mid-calf boots on a trip around London and she was carrying a number of shopping bags.

Easier second time round

She might find it easier to shop for maternity clothes and nursing wear this time round. When women go through their first pregnancies, they can find it hard to predict how quickly and dramatically their bodies will change shape.

So, rather than purchasing lots of items in advance, they often have to buy in bits and pieces as the months go by.

Full of energy

It seems Coleen’s energy levels haven’t been affected by her pregnancy. She managed to lug around her purchases without assistance. About this, the publication said: “[She] didn’t appear to be bothered by the heavy load and carried the three large carrier bags without the help of an aide.”

The news source added: “Earlier in the day, Coleen was spotted in a different outfit running errands, suggesting she isn’t letting pregnancy slow her down.”

Enjoying family life

Meanwhile, the Rooneys appear to be enjoying family life. Following Wayne’s recent England World Cup qualifying match against San Marino at Wembley Stadium, he, Coleen and son Kai stayed on in London to take in the sights and sounds.

During their mini-break, they managed to fit in a trip to Buckingham Palace, a lavish meal at Chinese restaurant Hakkasan, a shopping excursion to Harrod’s and they saw the West End production of Shrek: The Musical.


Also, writing on her Twitter page recently, Coleen noted the trio are excited to be expecting a new family member.

She said: “A few people guessed, so news is out ha!! Me, Wayne and Kai are thrilled that we are expecting a new addition to our family around May time x.” She added: “It’s still only early but bursting with excitement! Also wanted the news to come from us, before anyone else!”

You might not quite have the budget of WAGs like Coleen, but you no doubt want to look great in your maternity clothes. Here at Bella Mama we offer a fantastic range of garments that could be just what you’re looking for.

By perusing our online boutique, you can kiss goodbye to frump and indulge in stylish, contemporary and flattering items that can really boost your confidence.

Breastfeeding Clothes – Hilary Duff Embraces Her Curves

If you’ve recently given birth and think that all breastfeeding clothes were dull, and that you’d have to wear a tent for the next year or so, think again!

Actor Hilary Duff was spotted recently out and about in LA with new son Luca, embracing her curves in tight-fitting denim jeans in appropriately coloured baby blue, offered a classic example of how a new mum can look fantastic.

A simple white T-shirt completed the look, along with a pair of super-cool sneakers. The casual look was glammed up thanks to diamond ear studs and her nails, painted bright red.

Duff welcomed her firstborn son back in the spring, and has been quite public about her battle to get her pre-pregnancy body back. And she has admitted that she is not quite there yet.

She said: “I’m working hard and doing everything I can to lose weight the right way. I’m breast-feeding, so you have to be careful and can’t do anything too dramatic.”

Hilary also tweeted the other weekend about how pleased she was to be able to spend a Saturday night alone with her new baby to enjoy some precious mother and son bonding time together.

If you’re a new mum and feel like glamming up, the Internet makes a good starting point at a time when you may be less able or willing to get to the shops than previously. You’ll find a range of great maternity and nursing wear in stunning designs.
