London, Dec.7 (ANI): England striker Wayne Rooney is known for his football skills the world over, but the public would also be happy to know that he is a romantic at heart.
This aspect of his personality was there for all to see, when he paid for his fiancee Coleen McLoughlins six parachuting lessons as part of a sky diving course.
It was undertaken as part of a New Year bet between the two, reports The Sun.
Coleen boasted she had the bottle to jump out of a plane, while Wayne bet her she hadnt.
A source said: Wayne has been thinking about a good present for Coleens Christmas for a while. She was having a laugh, boasting about how brave she is - and he was winding her up, saying she was a chicken at heart.
Coleen said she had the bottle to do a parachute jump but Wayne wasnt having it.
Hes got a course booked for her now so hell find out soon enough if she has the nerve.
He wanted to give it a try as well but Sir Alex Ferguson, his agent and his insurers might have something to say about it. (ANI)
