London, Nov 22 (ANI): Wayne Rooney's gay cousin Stephen Rooney wants to be a dad.
Stephen, 25, is exploring the possibility of adoption and surrogacy and is even willing to adopt children from other countries.
"When Coleen gave birth to baby Kai I was so chuffed for her," the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
He added: "I love kids and I've always dreamed of having my own but I have been too shy to do anything about it. As soon as Wayne became a dad before me I decided it was time to act.
"Obviously I can't have a baby because I'm a bloke and I'm gay.
"But I've already looked into the possibility of surrogacy and adoption. I haven't found any girls who are willing to become a surrogate mother but it is definitely something that is on my mind.
"Adopting is probably my first choice and I don't need a partner to do that.
"Madonna has adopted loads of babies and Elton John even said he wanted one, so why not me?"
Stephen has even started bought tens of pairs of baby clothes for his little one.
He said: "I just haven't been able to help myself. I have been so excited about getting a baby of my own I've been in Mothercare every day picking out clothes."
However, Stephen is quick to add he would want a girl because he knows nothing about football.
He said: "I would want a little girl definitely. I couldn't have a boy because he would probably want to talk about football and I hate watching it." (ANI)
