Edwards, 27, told fans her baby news in an Instagram post showing her bump being cradled by her and Oxlade-Chamberlain's hands.

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.

"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.
