Perrie Edwards has revealed the emotional moment she broke her pregnancy news to the band – and, at the same time, found out Leigh-Anne Pinnock was also pregnant.
Little Mix singer Perrie, 27, is expecting her first child with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. While her bandmate Leigh-Anne, 29, is expecting her first child with her footballer fiancé Andre Gray.
The singers both broke their happy baby news to fans within days of each other, shortly before their appearance at The Brit Awards where they flaunted their stunning bumps.
And Perrie has now shared how the band discovered one another’s pregnancy news during an emotional Zoom meeting.
Mum-to-be Perrie, who recently enjoyed a lavish afternoon tea with a pal, explained the group need to plan things years in advance in a Tik Tok interview.
She explained how it was in one of those meets that news of her pregnancy came out – as well as Leigh-Anne’s and their manager Samantha Cox.
Perrie said: “We were on a work Zoom and we were chatting about things that were coming up in our schedule because in Little Mix we are blocked out two years in advance.
“I was thinking, ‘I won’t be able to do that’,“ she said. “I messaged my manager and she called me and said, ‘You’re pregnant’.
“I was like, ‘How do you know? And she said, ‘Because I am pregnant’. Then she said, ‘Can I add someone to the call?’.
“I just heard this voice that said, ‘Perrie! You too!’ And then we just cried our eyes out.”
The singer insisted that the group didn’t plan their joint pregnancies. “What timing! It wasn’t planned,” she said.
Moments after Perrie announced her happy news last week, the band’s manager Samantha shared a photo of herself, Perrie and Leigh-Anne all clutching their baby bumps on Instagram.

Band manager Samantha shared the photo on her Instagram page as she gushed over the unborn babies being close in the future.
She wrote in the caption: “Future best friends pending….
“We’ve been through so much and now we get to do this together!! Love you both @perrieedwards @leighannepinnock and Aunty @jadethirlwall”.
The excited bandmates couldn’t help but share their happiness in the comments.
Jade Thirlwall simply commented with a heart eye and red heart emoji.
While Leigh-Anne gave a shoutout to her sister Sairah, who is also pregnant, and confirmed the group will still be touring later this year as she said: “And @sairah_pinnock I meannnnnn tour is going to be the BEST!!!!!!!!”
