The second photo showed the child’s tiny foot balanced in Oxlade-Chamberlain’s hand. The soccer player also shared the news of his child’s arrival by sharing an image of both their hands cradling their newborn’s foot.
This is the first child for both Edwards and Oxlade-Chamberlain. The pop singer announced her pregnancy in May 2021 with a post showing off her baby bump alongside her boyfriend.
In the post, the athlete cradled his girlfriend’s baby bump with Edwards confessing that she was happy to be on the journey with her soulmate. She also said she couldn’t wait to meet her baby.
The pair were first rumored to be dating in November 2016 before going public with their romance in January 2017. They became Instagram-official a month later.
At the time, the singer uploaded a photo of her kissing her man in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Besides the announcement of the birth, Edwards also has a new release to look forward to.
The Little Mix musician said the group would be dropping a new album titled “Between Us.” The album will feature previous tracks and some new songs and will be out in November 2020.
The month chosen for the release happens to the band’s celebration of their 10th anniversary. Before Edwards started seeing Oxlade-Chamberlain, she dated former One Direction singer Zayn Malik.
The former couple was together for four years before separating in 2015. In Little Mix’s new book “Our World,” the pop singer revealed that Malik allegedly broke up with her via a text message.
At the time, the pair were also engaged to get married. Edwards confirmed in the book that she struggled with the breakup even though things were going well for her career-wise.
She shared how she healed from the separation by having sleepovers with her girlfriends. The Little Mix women cheered her up by getting her favorite desserts and did everything they could to keep her spirits up.
