Nice: But Coleen Rooney smiled on Sunday when she shared an adorable snap with her four sons as they posed for their annual Christmas photo
Coleen, who is married to 34-year-old soccer player Wayne, looked like the damn mom every inch as she snuggled into the group with her beloved sons before posing with each of them individually.

Coleen's festive smile comes just days after Rebekah Vardy won the first round of her high court libel battle on Friday after she was accused of relaying stories about Coleen's personal life to the media.
Coleen accused 38-year-old Rebekah of telling the press "false stories" about her personal life last October after performing months of "stabbing surgery" during which she was called "Wagatha Christie".
The wife of former English star Wayne Rooney claimed that Rebekah, her soccer colleague's wife, shared fake stories with The Sun newspaper that she posted on her personal Instagram account.

On Friday, the court ruled that the Post "clearly identified Rebekah as" guilty of grave and persistent breach of trust "- but minutes later, Coleen hit back with a statement through her spokesman, saying she was" keen "to hear what Mrs. Vardy has to say in court.
Coleen notoriously wrote on Instagram and Twitter: “I saved all the original stories and took screenshots that clearly show that only one person saw them. It's ……………. Rebekah Vardy's account. & # 39;
Rebekah, married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, denies the allegations and is suing Coleen for defamation damages in London High Court.
Drama: Coleen's festive smile comes just days after Rebekah Vardy won the first round of her libel battle in the High Court on Friday after she was accused of sharing stories about her personal life with the media (Coleen in 2018).
The decision of Friday in the High Court referred to the wording in the last sentence of the post. Coleen claimed she was only referring to Rebekah's Instagram account and not Rebekah herself.
But the judge said an ordinary reader would not use the word "bill" to "indicate that Coleen continues to have doubts about who the culprit was". He also contradicted Coleen's claim that using multiple ellipses on the last line diluted the meaning.
This means the court has no doubt about who the charges have been brought against – Rebekah – which will be a consideration when the libel case goes to trial next year.
Later that day, Coleen's spokesman told MailOnline: “Today's decision on the technical-legal significance of the item does not change anything. Coleen's defense against this misguided lawsuit was filed last month.
It clearly states the facts of their case, which remain the same regardless of a decision on the meaning. The main subjects of the case remain the three stories from Coleen's private Instagram account published by The Sun and Rebekah's relationship with the newspaper, including the "Secret Wag" column.
Shock: Coleen accused 38-year-old Rebekah of telling the press "false stories" about her personal life last October after performing months of "stabbing surgery" called "Wagatha Christie".
The Testimony: Last October, Coleen Becky's report publicly accused of selling fake stories about her, sparking an angry rejection of the then-pregnant WAG
Coleen is pleased that the judge has ordered Rebekah to swear her answer to the defense by December 8th. After three years of stress and apprehension about the leaks in her personal social media account, Coleen is eager to make progress on the real issues, starting with what Rebekah has to say to the court. & # 39;
In announcing his decision, the judge stated that the meaning he had set was "essentially the same as the meaning of the applicant".
In its ruling, Justice Warby said Ms. Rooney's message was “a considered post using some carefully drafted language,” adding, “The ordinary reader knew from the start that it was serious and conveying a message should be of some concern. & # 39;
"I don't need the money": Becky denied all allegations against her minutes after posting, saying she had nothing to gain and no financial motivation
The judge disagreed with Ms. Rooney's claim that the use of multiple ellipses in the post's infamous last line – "It's ……………. Rebekah Vardy's report" – the Meaning watered down.
He wrote: “Indeed, it seems to me that the element of tension introduced by the multiple points is meant to arouse expectations of a dramatic revelation.
& # 39; It tends to emphasize the importance of the name that is then provided. It would be a poor resolution just saying that the named person should be suspected of wrongdoing, but it could be someone else. & # 39;
He also denied Ms. Rooney's claim that she was referring only to Ms. Vardy's Instagram account and not Ms. Vardy herself.
Ruling: In its ruling, Justice Warby said Ms. Rooney's message was "a considered post that uses language with some care."
The judge ruled, “The reader is immediately told that the message is about bad behavior by“ someone I trust. ”The post then takes the form of a“ Whodunnit ”.
He added, "I certainly do not think the ordinary reader would use that single word (account), if repeated, to indicate that Ms. Rooney continues to have doubts about who the culprit was."
He later said, “There is nothing in these words other than the word 'account' that suggests that the conduct Ms. Rooney is complaining about may have been carried out by someone other than the Account Owner, Ms. Vardy. & # 39;
Justice Warby also ordered Ms. Rooney to pay Ms. Vardy just under £ 23,000 for yesterday's hearing.
Loss: Mr. Justice Warby has also directed Ms. Rooney to pay Ms. Vardy just under £ 23,000 for yesterday's hearing (pictured 2016).
