The Little Mix bandmates Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have given birth just days apart!
This past Saturday, Edwards, 28, had a baby with her footballer partner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
And then, on Monday, Pinnock, 29, revealed how her footballer fiance, Andre Gray, had had twins a week earlier.
“We asked for a miracle, we were given two,” she posted on Instagram. To which Edwards replied: “Two bundles of absolute joy. I love you my Lee Lee.”
“So grateful and excited to become a dad – bring on the sleepless nights.”
Back in May, Pinnock revealed on social media how she and her fiance Gray had “dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true”.
Pinnock and Edwards make up two-thirds of Little Mix, which was formed on The X Factor back in 2011 and has since become one of the UK’s biggest girl-bands.
The former band member Jesy Nelson recently spoke on her mental health during her time in the group this past week with Buzzfeed.
Jesy revealed in December of last year to Instagram the following: “The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health. I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.”
Jesy explained in a new interview with the Guardian, how online abuse and body issues caused her to attempt suicide. In 2013, Little MIx appeared on The X Factor UK, and many were quick to comment on her body.
“I thought, What is the f****** point? I’m literally starving myself,” Jesy revealed. “I’ve drunk Diet Coke for a week and I’m still getting called fat. I went into a really dark place and did what I did.” She was then hospitalized for an overdose.
Jesy was hospitalized yet again after filming the music video “Sweet Melody” last year.
“I know there are people who think I’ve let the other girls down, and that I’m so selfish, but I do think there comes a time in life when you do have to be selfish and look after yourself, and it was really affecting me mentally,” she added.
Jesy revealed how the “Sweet Melody” video led to her leaving the band, admitting earlier this year how: “the last music video we did [‘Sweet Melody’] was the breaking point. We’d been in lockdown, and [that had been] the first time I could have a break and be at home around people that I love. It was the happiest I’d ever felt, and I didn’t realize that until I went back to work.”
