Perrie Edwards surprised everyone on Monday when she announced she was pregnant with her first child with footballer Alex Oxade-Chamberlain.

While the star has been secretly hiding her news, it’s been business as usual for Little Mix who have been busy promoting their latest single Confetti.

Wearing super baggy clothes

With bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock also revealing she was expecting, the band were covering up not just one but two baby bumps pictured here on April 30.

The band swapped up their usual skimpy styles for baggier fashion as they arrived as Capital FM studios last week, keeping eyes firmly off their blossoming baby bumps.

Posting throwback photos to social media

Perrie’s recent social media uploads have been few and far between including a number of throwback snaps instead of anything taken recently.

Seven weeks ago, Perrie posted a series of photos to document what she said was an uneventful lockdown to truly throw us off the scent.

“Lockdown 3 has provided zero content, so here’s some random sh*t,” she wrote alongside a series of pictures led by this one of her svelte figure.

Knowing her angles

During the recent press shots for Confetti, all the pictures of Perrie were strategically angled so that fans couldn’t get a view of her stomach.

The singer opted for sitting down shots or looking back over her shoulder instead of anything front-facing.

Perrie revealed her news via a series of arty photos shared on her Instagram page on Monday.

Perrie captioned the photos: "So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate. Me + Him = You. We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!"

Meanwhile, Alex posted the same photos with his own caption, saying: "Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies?"

However, with the baby due in November and Little Mix set to tour in 2022, we hope a backstage creche is being organised.
