Coleen Rooney speaks for the first time since hubby Wayne's drink and drive arrest in party girl Laura Simpson's car two months ago

Coleen Rooney, the wife of former England football captain, Wayne Rooney, has spoken for the first time about her husband's arrest, back in September, for drunk driving in a car with party girl Laura Simpson. In an honest and rather lengthy Facebook post, Coleen writes: "Yes, I have put my wedding ring on. It didn't feel right wearing my ring. I see it as a sign of commitment and I was unsure what was happening."

The pregnant mum-of-three went on to say that though her footballer husband has been selfish, he's a brilliant dad: "I'm not going to list Wayne's good qualities as I don't think he deserves it now but he's a brilliant dad. He's made silly and selfish mistakes. Maybe that will change?"

She concluded, saying she's keen to make her marriage work: "Do I love Wayne... yes. If I didn't then I wouldn't be trying to make it work. I know I'd be fine on my own, with just me and my children, but I don't want to live like that, I want to try and continue our marriage and live as a family."

All the best, you guys!
