A massive congratulations to them both.

Perrie Edwards and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have just announced they are expecting their first child.

The Little Mix star shared the happy news on Instagram today, posting two photos of her growing bump alongside partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate,” she wrote. “We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!”

Perrie and footballer Alex reportedly began dating in November 2016, but they didn’t go public with their relationship until early 2017. They moved in together the next year.

Last year, the star hinted that the couple may be ready to get married after fitness coach Joe Wicks shared the details of his own proposal, saying: “I’d like it to be the traditional way. I hope he’s watching this and heard Joe’s incredible story. Four years we’ve been together.”

The couple first sparked engagement rumours in 2019 when Perrie wrote on Instagram: “You to me are everything, my Alex Oxlade Chamberlaine oh baby!” adding an extra ‘e’ on the end of his surname.

Alex soon corrected her saying: “I cannot believe you spelt my name wrong on your story,” before Perrie added: “It’ll be way easier to spell when it’s my second name and I have to write it all the time.”

The couple’s happy news comes just a few days after Leigh-Anne Pinnock announced her own pregnancy with fiancé Andre Gray.

Taking to Instagram to tell the world her happy news, Leigh-Anne said: “We’ve dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true… we can’t wait to meet you.”

A massive congrats to both women.
