Coleen Rooney enjoyed a day at the beach with husband Wayne, their four sons Kai, 10, Klay, seven, Kit, four, and Cass, two, and her parents in Barbados amid claims that he is afraid they too has gone a long way in her case with Rebekah Vardy.
The WAG and the captain of Derby County, both 34, enjoyed the day out with their little ones and her parents Colette and Tony McLoughlin, even as it started raining on the Spanish island on Thursday.
Coleen is in the middle of a £ 1 million lawsuit with Becky, 38, who revealed in court documents her ‘extreme fear’ last week about being ‘exposed to public ridicule and contempt’ by her in the so-called Wagatha Christie case .
Coleen looked classy in a black skirt swimsuit that accentuated her slender legs and sun-kissed skin as she went to the beach with her family.
She pulled back her brunette locks in a loose ponytail and protected her eyes with a few chic shades, using a natural makeup palette for the occasion.
She kept her spirits up even when it started to rain, and Coleen was able to pick up son Kai and take him to their lounge chairs while he dried up after a swim in the sea.

Friends say the former England captain had hoped Coleen’s WAG war wouldn’t come to the scene, but he’s willing to support his wife in her quest to prove her claims and get justified.
A source said The sun: “Wayne thinks it has already gone too far and fears that it will reach court.
“He fears that it may be embarrassing for him and their family to see what may come out. But he knows how important this is to Coleen and will support her. ‘
Another source said, “Coleen becomes obsessed with it.”
MailOnline contacted Coleen and Wayne Rooney representatives at the time of publication for comment.
The holiday was undoubtedly necessary for Coleen, who was accused by Rebekah of leaking stories to the media earlier this month.
Rebekah – who is the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, 33 – told in a bombshell legal document how she was left suicidal on charges of leaking stories about Coleen and her family.
She also claims in the document prepared for her libel fight against Coleen that the stress of the scandal had scared her into losing her unborn baby and panic attacks that left her too scared to leave her home.
The I’m A Celeb star complains that she has become a ‘scapegoat’ through her rival who wants to blame her for stories that appeared when Coleen had previously approved that her friends leak gossip about her.
The document says Rebekah believes she was “purposely scapegoated by suspect (Coleen) for earlier” leaked “stories.”
It refers to earlier stories about Coleen and Wayne with some ‘in particular about their marriage, which actually come from the suspect’s friends, sometimes even with the suspect’s permission’.
The newspaper reports that Sun journalist Dan Wootton said on talkRADIO last October that Coleen had “manipulated the media into telling stories about her own life.”
Wootton added that he had written “many, many stories” about her marriage and “many other things around the Rooneys” that came directly from Coleen’s friends, including some saying “with her (Coleen’s) approval,” the document says
He further said on talkRADIO that nothing had ever come from ‘one of the Vardys,’ he adds.
Rebekah describes in her document how Coleen’s public charges against her on Instagram, while seven months pregnant, “had seriously damaged her reputation.”
She shared how Coleen had “ caused her tremendous grief and extreme shame ” and how she was bombarded with abuse on social media.
Rebekah said the widespread damage to her reputation was illustrated by research showing that her name had become a more popular search term than ‘Brexit’ on Google in the UK the day the scandal broke out.
She also claimed it led to her name appearing on Twitter the same day 276,822 times, more than triple the number of entries from Boris Johnson, whose name had been published only 80,704 times.
Coleen made headlines around the world last October when she made her devastating claim that Rebekah had leaked stories about her and her family to Sun newspaper.
She released the statement, “It was hard to keep it to myself and not comment at all, especially if the stories leaked, but I had to. Now I’m sure which account / person it comes from.
“I have kept all the original stories and put them on a screen, which clearly shows that only one person has watched them. It is ……………. Rebekah Vardy’s account. ‘
Rebekah immediately denied the claims and has since been fighting to clear her name and demands that Coleen withdraw the claims against her.
