Little Mix star Perrie Edwards gave birth to her first child with footballer boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The 28-year-old singer revealed the news to her 13 million Instagram followers with a photo of the newcomer’s tiny hands and feet.
“Welcome to the baby world,” Edwards wrote in his caption, next to the baby’s date of birth on August 21, 2021.

Edwards’ companion Leigh-Anne Pinnock, who is expecting her own child, added a comment to the post.
“I am so proud of you and love you so much. What an angel,” she wrote.
Other famous faces rushed to congratulate the star in the comments section, with Stacey Solomon, Laura Whitmore and Winnie Harlow among those sharing words of welcome to the baby.
Eagle-eyed fans have suggested Edwards may have gone into labor as Oxlade-Chamberlain was absent from the Liverpool squad for their match against Burnley on Saturday.

The couple started dating in 2017 and announced they were expecting a baby in May this year.
“So happy to be on this wild journey with my soul mate,” Edwards wrote on Instagram as she revealed she was pregnant. “Me + Him = You … We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox.”
Edwards and Oxlade-Chamberlain’s baby is one of three newcomers to the Little Mix family this year, along with both Pinnock and band manager Samantha Cox.
In an interview earlier this year, Edwards revealed that she was worried about telling her bandmates about the pregnancy given their busy schedules, only to make things easier when she found out her baby was one of the three.
