Congratulations are in order for Perrie Edwards and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as they welcomed their first baby to the world this weekend.
The Little Mix singer announced the birth of her baby on Saturday, August 21 with a series of black-and-white photos showing the newborn’s hands, ear, and tiny feet. “Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21 ♥️,” Perrie wrote alongside the photo series. Alex shared the same photos to his IG feed, adding, “Welcome to the world, little one.” Aww!
Perrie and Alex first announced their growing family back in May, with the Little Mix singer sharing a black-and-white snap of her belly. “So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate,” she wrote at the time. “Me + Him = You 🌎♥️. We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!” On his page, the soccer star joked, “Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies?” adding that he was “so grateful and excited” about becoming a dad.
The star-studded couple has been Insta-official since early 2017 (with a smooch outside the Eiffel Tower no less!), although relationship rumors started swirling around them a few months prior. The pair has been going strong since then, and they’ve shared a ton of sweet moments with fans via social media over the years, especially throughout the past months while quarantining together amid the coronavirus pandemic. “I feel like I’m really enjoying this, I can’t lie,” Perrie said of isolating with Alex during an April 2020 interview on KIIS FM. “I’m having the time of my life!”
