In the last year, the British girl group, Little Mix has been through many developments! In October of 2020, Jesy Nelson, sadly, decided to leave the group due to mental health issues. Thankfully, Little Mix decided to continue as a trio and have been making headways.
At this year’s BRIT awards, the singers became the first girl group to win best British Group. As they accepted their award, they thanked all the girl groups that came before them. After winning such an honor, the girls mentioned an expansion in the group because both Perrie Edwards and Leigh Anne Pinnock announced they were expecting!
Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Andre Gray, a professional footballer, have been together since May 2016, when they met on vacation. They officially announced their relationship at the beginning of 2017 and have been wildly in love ever since. In May of 2020, when celebrating their fourth anniversary Andre proposed to Leigh Anne, and she, of course, said yes! A year later, she took to Instagram to announce her pregnancy with maternity pictures. The caption stated, “We’ve dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true… we can’t wait to meet you”. Pinnock shared how pregnancy is the “hardest thing” she has “ever done.” She has to “give” her “body some credit” as she experienced, “swollen hands and feet, bruised ribs.” However, even with the difficulties, Leigh Anne is beyond excited about this journey ahead.
Edwards and her football player boyfriend, Alex Chamberlain, have been together since 2016. Just a couple of weeks after Leigh Anne posted her news, Perrie shared a picture of her own baby bump. She commented, “So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate. Me + Him = You 🌎♥️. We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox”. Perrie has kept most of the pregnancy off social media but she, recently, showed pictures of her baby shower through Instastories. Additionally, she posted a picture of her baby bump and commented, “growingggg”.
Leigh Anne and Perrie had an adorable and funny story of how they found out they were both pregnant at the same time. Through a telephone call with their manager, where Perrie revealed how she was expecting, Leigh Anne was added to the call, where she said, “you too?” It became a shocking but marvelous time for them to be on the journey at the same time.
The next era of Little Mix will be an exciting one. The first record as a trio is in progress while they have two additional members joining them. Well wishes to Leigh Anne and Perrie as they start their journey of motherhood!
