The 27-year-old confirmed the exciting news on her Instagram page by posting two bare bump photos. Perrie's announcement arrived less than a week after her fellow Little Mix group member, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, revealed that she was expecting a baby with fiancé Andre Gray.
Who is Perrie Edwards baby daddy, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?
The X Factor alum has been in a relationship with professional soccer player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain since the fall of 2016.
Alex has been playing professionally as a midfielder since 2011. He spent six years with Arsenal before he signed a five-year contract to play for Liverpool. The athlete is also a member of the England national team.
The pair first fueled romance rumors when Perrie appeared at one of Alex's games (he was playing for Arsenal at the time). He returned the favor and continued to keep fans talking by attending a Little Mix performance.
They confirmed their romance on Instagram early 2017, and Alex and Perrie have continued posting photos together ever since.
The duo quarantined together at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. About six months before sharing the pregnancy news, the "Wings" singer indicated that she was ready for an engagement.
The Little Mix members appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show with comedian Mike McIntyre and fitness coach Joe Wicks. After the others finished sharing their engagement stories, Perrie expressed how she wanted her beau to follow in Joe's proposal footsteps.
"I'd like it to be the traditional way," she shared. "I'm hoping he's watching this and hears Joe's wonderful story and then he does it."
Perrie and Alex have yet to announce an engagement, but they are taking the next step in their four-and-a-half year relationship by expanding their family.
When was Perrie Edwards' due date?
Perrie and Alex announced that they were expecting a baby together with the same two photos on Instagram on May 10.
"So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate. Me + Him = You," Perrie wrote in the caption of her post, along with a both a heart and the Earth emoji. "We can't wait to meet you baby Ox."
In his caption, Alex joked about how he would need some training ahead of welcoming his bundle of joy.
"Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies?" he asked. "So grateful and excited to become a dad. Bring on the sleepless nights."
Many Little Mix fans were ecstatic that two of the remaining three members were expecting at the same time. Leigh-Anne Pinnock was equally as thrilled.
As of August 2021, Perrie and Ox have finally welcomed their baby! While the new parents are currently keeping the baby's name and gender under wraps, they couldn't be more delighted at the new arrival. "Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21" Perrie wrote in an Instagram post, indicating the baby was born on Aug. 21, 2021.
Congratulations to the happy couple! Little Mix fans look forward to also meeting Leigh-Anne's baby in the weeks to come.
