Happy families, Rooney style: While Wayne cavorts with blondes in their holiday hotel, it's bikinis galore for Coleen, and oh-so intimate tweets
08:48 GMT, 23 May 2012
For a couple who have endured more than a few rocky patches during their four-year marriage, Coleen and Wayne are certainly keen to let the world know that all is rosy in the Rooney marriage.
On holiday in Las Vegas this week, the pair splashed the cash, brandished the bling, tweeted intimate family pictures and put on a most enthusiastic display of affection for the cameras.
They even kept up the happy facade after Wayne was caught in some rather embarrassing close-ups with a series of blonde, tanned, mini-skirted girls in a nightclub shortly after their arrival. That’s devotion for you.
Within minutes of their plane touching down, Coleen wastes no time in stripping to her designer bikini while Wayne lets the sun warm his newly thatched head
For Coleen, who is barely seen out of swimwear these days, it was her third holiday this year, following her earlier trips to Barbados and Miami.
This time she was joined by Wayne, their two-year-old son Kai as well as Coleen’s parents Tony and Colette, her brother Anthony, Wayne’s brother, John and Coleen’s best friend, Amy Louise Wilkinson.
Coleen closes her eyes, forgets her pale and pasty husband, and dreams of her next holiday
The party are staying at the very glitzy (and ever so slightly naff) five-star Wynn Hotel where premier suites cost 1,100 per night.
Coleen and Wayne, who this year celebrate ten years together, arrived at the resort last week and since then they’ve been spotted gambling in the casino, dancing in the nightclub and frolicking in the pool.
Earlier this year, Coleen unveiled her own range of swimwear for budget catalogue Littlewoods. Her colourful, polyester creations sell for as little as 10 but, curiously, Coleen chose not to flaunt her own wares in Vegas, instead parading a selection of designer bikinis by Melissa Odabash and Diane Von Furstenberg, which wouldn’t have given her much change from 200.
But then we are talking about a couple with a combined fortune of 58 million.
Earlier this week, they hired a 4,439 thatched cabana so they could throw their own exclusive pool-side party.
It was here that Coleen and Wayne splashed, smooched and whispered sweet nothings in each others’ ears.
Here, we bring you the never-a-dull-moment photos from the Rooney family’s sunshine holiday to Las Vegas.
Sunburn, beer bellies and tattoos. No it's not a scene from the TV show Benidorm – just Wayne and his father-in-law Tony enjoying a cosy chat
Wayne gives his son Kai, the best-travelled toddler in the world, a helping hand on their way to the pool
The chips are down as Wayne joins former Man U team-mate Wes Brown at the Roo-lette tables where they place a bet on the odds of the striker raising a smile on the trip
Wayne loses his bet about smiling and positively beams. While Coleen and Kai sleep off the jetlag, he hits the aptly named Tryst nightclub in their hotel. Rooney’s gang is soon besieged by blondes. Wayne manages to keep his hands to himself (almost) and parties until 3am
Quick, more Factor 30! Sun-cooked Coleen dives for cover, but she knows that the great thing about going on holiday every six weeks is that the tan never fades
Little Kai looks super cool clutching goggles and wearing a shark-fin float. When it comes to sunbathing, his daddy is a Great White, too
Another day, another bikini. Coleen keeps her ten-carat diamond wedding ring on – but when your bling costs 250,000 it's worth getting a tan line
'Appy birthday to me mam.' Coleen tweets this picture as they share cocktails with her best friend Amy
'Me and my cool dude.' Coleen again takes to Twitter to post this snap of her and Kai in their matching Ray-Ban sunglasses
Coleen and her 'bezzies' partying at the exclusive Encore Beach Club, where a private cabana will set you back 4,439 a day
While the girls flash the flesh, Wayne again keeps his lily-white physique under wraps
All forgotten now, Wayne and Coleen put his nightclub antics with blondes behind them by enjoying a very public display of affection in the pool
Coleen carries tired Kai through Heathrow. As they head for home, he sucks on a can of Coke. Well, it is the Diet variety
