Coleen Rooney stunned in a black lace dress as she arrived at the screening of The Real Wagatha Story in Liverpool on Wednesday evening with her husband Wayne.
The media personality and her footballer husband, both 37, were joined by their son Kai, 13, on the pink carpet at the Everyman Liverpool.
The famous couple put on a united front ahead of the film’s release with a supportive arm around each other, while Kai joined them for supportive snaps.
And Coleen dazzled in the 50/50 style geometric dress, with one half as a lace mini dress and the other as a black formal dress.
She made sure all eyes were on her as she pinned back her auburn waves with front locks framing her face.

Rebekah sued Coleen, alleging she leaked details of Coleen’s private life to the press after Coleen staged an elaborate sting operation to find out who was feeding stories about her to The Sun.
And although Coleen won the £3 million defamation case, she admitted that things were not smooth sailing at home and that the stress of the experience ‘exhausted’ her and had an impact on her family.
In the series, Coleen revealed that her husband Wayne Rooney played a crucial role in helping her expose Rebekah – even though he was completely unaware of her super quests.
Coleen tracked down Rebekah after she posted a series of false claims on her private Instagram page – blocking everyone but her – under which she was traveling to Mexico to investigate ‘baby gender selection’.

After the story ended up in The Sun, Coleen realized that the leak could only have come from Rebekah’s camp as it would have been impossible for any of her friends and loved ones to take it to the press.
The reason for this, as she explained in Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story, was that Wayne secretly underwent a vasectomy after the couple decided their family was “complete” after welcoming son Cass in 2018.
Coleen – who shares Kai, 13, Klay, 10, Kit, seven, and Cass, five, with Wayne – revealed the couple’s plan not to have any more children after the footballer’s sterilization procedure, making gender selection the perfect fake story.
She explained: ‘After all my children are born, the press is always interested in whether I’m having another baby, and it’s always, ‘would you like a girl?’
‘I always thought I would have a few children, maybe three at most, but then came number four and then we knew our family was complete.
“Me and Wayne were talking about him having a vasectomy. He said after this baby this is the one we’re not having anymore and Wayne went in and got the cut so I knew for sure we weren’t going to have any more kids.
“I had heard about this procedure where you could choose the gender of your children, but I had never thought about doing that, so I came up with the idea of writing a story.”
Elsewhere, Coleen expressed her frustration at potentially losing money after being dragged into a ‘pathetic’ lawsuit.
When she won her defamation case against Rebekah, it was ordered that her legal bills be reimbursed.
Coleen’s lawyers have passed a £1.8 million legal bill to Rebekah, who has quashed the ‘inflated’ amount, which reportedly included expenses on luxury hotel stays and expensive meals.

Reflecting on the costs incurred during the trial, Coleen mused: ‘It was a pathetic reason to go to court, I wish we could have sorted it out.
“The money was absolutely ridiculous and I may not get all my money back.”
With her own legal costs estimated to be around £4 million and an order to pay Coleen’s, Rebekah is facing an estimated £6 million in legal costs.
Sources told The Sun she was ‘furious after seeing Coleen’s bill’ and has started a ‘war’ over the costs.
The insiders said she will pay what she is ‘rightly owed’ but believe she is ‘trying her luck by asking for almost £2 million’.
Lawyers acting on behalf of Coleen said an original – much lower – figure suggested at the start of the proceedings was always going to be higher.
Also on the show, Wayne revealed that he was so caught up in preparing for the trial that he wanted to become a lawyer, until Coleen shut him down.
He said: ‘Yes, it was interesting because I love crime documentaries and especially the different techniques the two lawyers used.’
Wayne often attended daily briefings with Coleen and her lawyers, Paul Lunt and David Sherborne, where he presented legal arguments.
Coleen remembers that after one particular interjection from her husband, she told him, “Wayne shut up and let David or Paul speak.”

She said: “He wanted to go to law school at the time and he had all these plans,” before adding that the “little moments” carried them through.
Coleen’s lawyer Jamie Hurworth said: ‘Once the day was over we would have a little debrief with Wayne and Coleen. I hadn’t had much to do with Wayne before the trial. But he was just fascinated by the whole thing.
“Wayne started suggesting a legal argument that we should run.”
Coleen’s lead lawyer Paul Lunt added: ‘I’m not saying he’s a modern-day Columbo, but if we had given him a dress and a wig he would have been confused because he asked a few questions.’
