Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock has shared another glowing update from her pregnancy, admitting it is the hardest thing she's done – but adding how proud she is of her body.

Pinnock and bandmate Perrie Edwards are both expecting their first children this year and Pinnock, 29, has shared the latest developments in her pregnancy with fans on Instagram.

Showing another beautiful photo of her bump as she relaxed in a bikini in the sunshine, Pinnock said she had been finding the physical effects tough, but was in awe of what her body was doing.

She wrote: "Time to give my body some credit... this is the hardest thing I have EVER done, I have struggled these past few weeks.

"Swollen hands and feet, bruised ribs and then chuck in a whole heap of hormones to the mix but then I think about what's actually going on inside this belly and I'm mind blown... creating life...

"I am so proud of how far I've come and so grateful for this blessing."

Pinnock and her footballer fiance Andre Gray announced their pregnancy news earlier this year with a glamorous bump shoot, followed a few days later by Edwards and her footballer partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sharing their own news on Instagram.

As she enjoyed a sunshine holiday last month, Pinnock admitted she had been feeling swollen and hormonal – despite looking glowing in her holiday snaps.

Last week, the singer suggested her due date could be imminent when she posted another bump pic with the comment: "We get to meet you soon..."

Little Mix made history in May when they became the first girl group to win best British band at the Brit Awards.

Jade Thirlwall paid tribute to other UK girl groups in their acceptance speech, saying: "The fact that a girl band has won this award really does speak volumes, so this is not just for us, its for the Spice Girls, All Saints and all of the incredible girl bands."
