Perrie Edwards of Little Mix announced on Instagram on Monday, May 10, 2021, that she is expecting her first child with footballer Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.
The artist revealed some cute photos as well as a sweet note with specifics about the situation. Fans have gone all out to storm the comment section with positive comments after seeing this post. She continued, “Me + Him= You. We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!”
The longtime X Factor star started going out with the 27-year-old soccer player in February 2017, just two years after her separation from Zayn Malik, and the couple will now become quite the cute trio over four years later.
The performer shared a great collection of black-and-white pictures to celebrate the happy news. The first photo was a sweet, up-close view of her emerging baby bump, with both her and Alex’s hands on either side of her belly. The duo was all smiles about their new bundle of joy in the second shot, which featured a full-body shot of them.
The soon-to-be-father is ecstatic. For his Instagram caption, Alex wrote: “Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies? So grateful and excited to become a dad. Bring on the sleepless nights.” Perrie’s bandmates were among the first to congratulate their fellow artist in the comment section, with Jade Thirlwall saying, “Beaming for you both, I’m the luckiest auntie in the world! Love youuuu x.”
Perrie’s disclosure comes just days after fellow Little Mix member Leigh-Anne Pinnock confirmed that she and her partner Andre Gray are awaiting their first child. The 29-year-old singer shared the good news with her 6.5 million Instagram followers, wearing a silk green gown with a matching bralette and skirt while cradling her baby bump. Pinnock, Edwards, and Little Mix co-star Jade Thirlwall have all worn baggy, loose-fitting outfits in recent TV appearances, which fans thought was to help Pinnock hide her pregnancy – but they didn’t realize Edwards was keeping the same secret.
Perrie Edwards’ baby’s due date is unknown, although there are few specifics about the birth. It’s anticipated that the baby will arrive at the end of the year.
