Watch: Perrie Edwards expecting first child
Perrie Edwards has announced she is expecting her first child with partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The exciting pregnancy news comes just a week after her Little Mix bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock shared her own pregnancy announcement.
Edwards, 27, told fans her baby news in an Instagram post showing her bump being cradled by her and Oxlade-Chamberlain's hands.
A second photo showed the couple smiling and embracing.
Edwards wrote: "So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate
"Me + Him = You
"We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!"
Little Mix fans were quick to offer their congratulations – and their surprise that two of the group's three members will become mums this year.
A week earlier, Pinnock, 29, revealed she was expecting her first child with fiance Andre Gray by releasing a series of photos showing her bump.
In recent TV interviews, Pinnock, Edwards and Little Mix co-star Jade Thirlwall have all worn baggy, loose-fitting clothes, which fans had assumed was to help Pinnock disguise her bump – but hadn't realised that Edwards was keeping the same secret.
Talking on BBC Breakfast after her pregnancy announcement, Pinnock said: "I'm having a baby!
"It still feels so weird actually saying it because I've been hiding it so long, so I'm just so relieved that it's finally out there and I can relax and embrace my bump. I feel good.
"It's such sensitive information, I wanted to be the one to tell the world, and obviously when you're famous there are people who like to tell things and leak things so I just wanted to be that person to say my beautiful news."
Little Mix became a trio in December when Jesy Nelson announced she was quitting the group following struggles with her mental health.
