But unfortunately for the footballer, people couldn’t help pointing out a bit of an awkward error in his snap.

In the background, a light box reading ‘Happy Birhtday Kai’ could be seen. And yes, we mean ‘birhtday’. Oops.

One wrote: ‘Birhtday haha,’ while others said: ‘You plum you spelt it wrong,’ and: ‘Spelt birthday wrong.’

A little harsh to point out, no? We mean, we’re sure it was just an innocent mistake.

Coleen – who’s also mum to youngest son Kit – has since explained that this was the case, hitting back on Twitter: ‘Thanks for all your lovely birthday wishes for Kai! Hahaha I know the sign was spelt wrong … it was dropped and quickly put back together.’

Easily done when you’ve got three children in tow, lady! Send a big belated happy birthday to Kai from us.
