Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has posted a beautiful new photo of her baby boy and revealed his cool name.

She welcomed her first child with footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain last month, and has now revealed that they have named him Axel – a clever play on his dad's own name too.

Perrie posted a photo on her Instagram with the baby wrapped up in a cosy blanket with a blue woolly hat on his head, captioning it: "2 weeks of loving you. I've never felt love like this before! Axel Oxlade-Chamberlain".

Perrie's famous friends commented with lovely messages, including Strictly Come Dancing's Saffron Barker who wrote: "Adorable [crying emoji, love heart emoji] so gorgeous, congratulations again xxxx."

Keith Lemon added: "Amazing! Well done!" and The Only Way Is Essex's Lauren Pope said: "Oh what a little beauty (love heart emoji)".

The couple announced they were expecting their first child together back in May by posting black and white bump photos to both of their Instagram accounts. Perrie called it a "wild journey with my soulmate", while Alex said: "Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies? So grateful and excited to become a dad. Bring on the sleepless nights."

Only a few days before baby Axel was born, Perrie's bandmate Leigh-Ann Pinnock and her partner Andre Gray welcomed twins.

The singer took to Instagram on Monday, August 23, to share a beautiful, close-up snap of the newborns' feet – each set being cradled by her's and footballer Gray's hands.

Alongside the picture, Pinnock, confirmed the little ones' birth date, writing: "We asked for a miracle, we were given two... Our Cubbies are here 16/08/21."
