Perrie Edwards and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain announced on Monday they are expecting their first baby in a sweet post on social media. The 27-year old Little Mix singer was captured cradling her baby bump alongside professional soccer player boyfriend, captioning the image,
“So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate.
Me + Him = You 🌎♥️
We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!”
The beautiful black and white photo finds the two smiling broadly, whilst Chamberlain places his hands around Perrie’s waist. Her baby bump was on full display as she posed wearing a black bra and affectionately placing her hand on Alex’s neck.

Alex shared the same images on Instagram writing, “Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies? 😅 so grateful and excited to become a dad ❤️ bring on the sleepless nights.”
A year after cutting off a two year engagement to Zayn Malik, the singer made her relationship with Oxlade-Chamberlain public in an Instagram post in February 2017. The photo showed the two kissing in front of the Eiffel Tower, captioning it simply, “Him.”
It has been four years since Liverpool’s midfielder and Edwards have been dating, marking their anniversary in November. Many questioned whether the duo would be stepping up their game in the relationship with wedding bells possibly chiming.
During an appearance on the Capital Breakfast Show with Roman Kemp, she was asked: “If he did pop the question, is it a silly question to ask, would you say yes?”
Perrie responded, “I have to think about it I think… No Obviously! Me and Leigh-Anne [Pinnock] were just chatting and Andre [Gray] wanted to wait for their anniversary. I was like, aww your four-year, I just had my four-year anniversary and I got a Dairy Milk bar of chocolate! But do you know what, I appreciate him, we don’t want to rush into it. But it would be a definitely yes from me, I reckon!”
Leigh-Anne Pinnock Announced Her Own Pregnancy
Little Mix’s baby boom news started with Leigh-Anne Pinnock who announced her pregnancy last week. She shared the news through a gallery of images posted on social media with her soccer star fiancé Andre Gray.
The post captioned, “We’ve dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true… we can’t wait to meet you. ❤️😍.”
Mixers around the world were thrilled following the news, setting emphasis on the friendship Perrie and Leigh-Anne share. Endless memes and comments flooded the Internet as the two band members will now enter a new phase in their life, one which they can cherish together.

the fact that two little mix members are now pregnant and both packed in as much work as they could with such a busy schedule. both announced their pregnancies on different days so each girl could have their moment and jade helped cover their pregnancies. I love their friendship

Little Mix fans await to see two out of three band members become moms in the next few months. The group became a trio back in December 2020, as Jesy Nelson announced she was quitting due to her ongoing struggle with her mental health.
