The first Little Mix baby is finally here! Perrie Edwards has welcomed her first child with boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
On 22nd August, Perrie took to Instagram to share the news with fans, sharing the sweetest snaps of the baby cradled in a fluffy blanket, and another showing the baby’s foot resting in Alex’s hand. The couple have yet to reveal the baby’s gender or name.
“Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21 ♥️,” Perrie captioned the photos, with Alex adding: “Welcome to the world little one 😍❤️ 21/08/21”.
The comments were flooded with congratulatory messages. Bandmate Leigh-Anne, who is also expecting her first child, wrote: “I am so proud of you and I love you so much 🥺 what an angel ❤️❤️😍😍”, while Laura Whitmore wrote: “Welcome baby! ❤️❤️❤️” and Lauren Pope commented: “The most special time, huge congratulations”.
28-year-old Perrie announced that she was pregnant back in May, sharing intimate black and white photos to her Instagram feed, showing Alex, also 28, tenderly cradling her baby bump.
“So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate
“Me + Him = You 🌎♥️
“We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!”, she captioned the image.
Alex added: “Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies? 😅 so grateful and excited to become a dad ❤️ bring on the sleepless nights 🤪”.
Perrie and Alex have reportedly been dating since November 2016, but took their relationship public the following year. The pair have been inseparable ever since, often sharing smitten posts to social media and Perrie is often spotted supporting him at his football matches.
We can’t wait to see more snaps of Perrie and Alex’s adorable cherub, and just imagine the cuteness when Perrie and Leigh-Anne’s babies meet! We don’t think we could handle it tbh.
