Coleen Rooney reportedly thinks Wayne’s community service sentence will ‘shock’ him into changing his behaviour.
The Everton footballer was banned from driving from two years and given 100 hours of unpaid work after pleading guilty to drink driving on Monday.
Coleen, who is pregnant with their fourth child, is said to have told friends she is tired of Wayne’s ‘immature antics’.
A source told The Sun: ‘She thinks this may be the shock he needs to grow up. She has always said he is like her fourth child.
‘He’s one big kid. He does nothing around the house, is always fooling around – and just plays computer games.
‘It’s time for Wayne to man up. The latest events are the last straw. Coleen thinks this might be the making of him.’
Rooney was arrested on August 31 while driving the car of office worker Laura Simpson.
He said in a statement: ‘Rooney said in a statement: ‘Following today’s court hearing I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong.
‘I have already sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC.
‘Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.
‘Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.’
Simpson, 29, has since appeared on This Morning to give her side of the story, and was adamant that she had done nothing wrong.
She said: ‘I do regret the damage it’s causing but I don’t think I deserve everything I’m getting.’
When asked whether she felt Coleen should ‘forgive and forget’, she said: ‘I don’t think he deserves…it’s my opinion. I wouldn’t do that to my partner.’
