Leigh-Anne Pinnock dubbed her Little Mix bandmate Perrie Edwards an “angel” as she shared snaps of her newborn baby
Pregnant Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock was in awe of her bandmate Perrie Edwards after she gave birth.
Perrie, 28, took to Instagram today to reveal that she’d welcomed her first child with boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Leigh-Anne, who is due to give birth to her first child with fiancé Andre Gray, was quick to comment on Perrie’s post with a gushing tribute.
She wrote: “I am so proud of you and I love you so much”
“what an angel,” she added.
Leigh-Anne actually announced her pregnancy a couple of days before Perrie did, so she’s surely due to give birth any day now.
Perrie is yet to share the name or gender of her child, but announced the arrival with two sweet black and white pictures.
One showed the little one’s tiny hand resting on the side of their face, and another showed their cute little foot.
“Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21,” the singer captioned the images, with her fans and famous pals quickly rushing to offer their congratulations.
Fellow X Factor star Stacey Solomon, who is expecting her first daughter with fiancé Joe Swash, commented: “Img congratulations darling love you lots and lots”
While I’m A Celebrity winner Giovanna Fletcher posted: “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! Huge huge huge congratulations! Wonderful news! Xxxxxx”
“Welcome baby,” Love Island host Laura Whitmore penned.
And Love Island’s Chris Hughes, who used to date her former bandmate Jesy Nelson, wrote: “Congrats team @alexoxchamberlain”

Yesterday, Perrie’s fans had become convinced she’d gone into labour, and it seems they were right.
The theory started because Alex was expected to play in Liverpool’s match against Burnley, but was left off the team sheet at the last minute due to “personal reasons”.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to theorise that Perrie could be about to give birth at any moment.
One wrote: “Oxlade-chamberlain out of the Liverpool match for personal reasons, Perrie Edwards is having her baby lads ya heard it here first.”
And a second guessed: “Urmmmm Alex isn’t in the squad, does that mean… baby ox ????????”
Perrie’s little arrival comes just a couple of days after she thrilled her followers by posing nude with her baby bump on display.
One picture showed her covered in gold paint as she stood totally nude, cleverly maintaining her modesty with the placement of her arms and legs.
A second image showed her standing naked in a field with a chiffon scarf draped over her as she again covered her modesty.
