Little Mix star Perrie Edwards announces birth of first child with sweet photos

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has welcomed her new arrival into the world.

“Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21,” she posted alongside a pair of sweet snaps on Instagram.

First-time mum Perrie, 28, and her England footy player boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are over joyed their baby has finally made an appearance.

The couple, who have been together four and a half years, have been sharing their journey to parenthood on social media since they went public with the news that Perrie was pregnant in May.

Bandmate Leigh Anne-Pinnock announced she was also expecting days earlier, making it quite the celebration for the pop stars who are now honouring third band member Jade Thurwell with ‘aunty duties’.

Announcing the news on Instagram alongside some adorable black and white photos, Perrie wrote: “So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate. Me + Him = You. We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!”

Ahead of their arrival Perrie posted an arty black and white modelled shoot with her blossoming bump covered in a silk sheet and her bare shoulders visible.

She posted: “Words cannot describe how I’m feeling on the inside… I could quite literally burst with joy.”
