Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards has announced that she and partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are engaged.

On Saturday night, the chart-topping star shared photos of the moment Alex popped the question on her Instagram page, sharing her excitement with her followers.

"Last night the love of my life got down on one knee," she said of the Liverpool midfielder. "And I said… YES!"

Congratulatory messages began pouring in from many of Perry's famous friends, including former bandmate Jade Thurwall, who commented with a tearful emoji.

Reports confirm that Perry and Alex were an object in 2017 and moved in two years later.

Last year, Perry announced that she was pregnant with the couple's first child

just days after then-bandmate Lee-Anne Pinnacle publicly revealed that she was also expecting him.

She gave birth to a son, Axel, in August 2021.

Perry is best known as a member of the chart-topping girl band Little Mix, formed in 2011 on The X Factor.

After being together for over a decade, the trio revealed that they were on an indefinite break at the end of last year

and that the three members of the group are hoping to start a solo career in the near future.

Meanwhile, Alex began his professional football career at the age of 17 when he signed with Southampton

later played for Arsenal. He has been part of the Liverpool team since 2017.
