Singer Perrie Edwards of the British girl group Little Mix and professional soccer star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have welcomed their first child together! Perrie shared two black and white photos of her newborn and revealed that she welcomed her little one early this morning.

“Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21 ♥️” Perrie captioned her photo. Alex shared a similar post to his Instagram page, but the second picture was different than Perrie’s. The image showed both Alex and Perrie holding their newborn’s tiny foot. He captioned his post, “Welcome to the world little one 😍❤️ 21/08/21.” The couple did not reveal the name they chose for their child nor their gender.

The “Secret Love Song” singer and her partner revealed in May that they were expecting. They each shared black and white photos of Perrie’s growing baby bump to reveal the news. In her announcement, Perrie wrote, “So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate. Me + Him = You 🌎♥️ We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!” In his post, Alex shared, “Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies? 😅 so grateful and excited to become a dad ❤️ bring on the sleepless nights 🤪”

Perrie and Alex were first rumored to be dating in November of 2016. They went public with their relationship a few months later in January of 2017. Congratulations to Perrie and Alex on becoming parents! We wish them all the best on this thrilling new adventure.
