LITTLE Mix’s Perrie Edwards looked amazing as she headed out for dinner with fiancé Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Perrie cut a casual but chic figure in ripped jeans a black top, and mid-length black leather coat.
Wearing her long blonde hair in a straight style, Perrie finished off her look with black velvet heels.
Footballer Alex also looked comfortable in a satin baseball jacket over a white Balenciaga t-shirt and matching black jeans.
The new parents headed out for date night to celebrity hotspot, The Ivy in Manchester.
Perrie gave birth to their first child, Axel, just eight weeks ago and revealed the baby arrived three weeks early.
However, the singer revealed at the weekend that the Little Mix babies weren’t supposed to be quite so close in age, with Axel actually due in September.
Perrie shared videos of both Alex and her dad building the furniture for the nursery as she wrote: “I can’t believe he came the day after we put up the furniture #ThreeWeeksEarly”.
Perrie kept her baby son’s name a secret for two weeks before taking to social media to finally reveal that they had called him Axel.
She broke the news alongside two adorable snaps of the newborn, which saw him wrapped up in a white blanket in a basket.
Perrie wrote to her following: “Two weeks of loving you. I’ve never felt love like this before!”
Meanwhile, Leigh-Anne, who shares her twins with fiance Andre Gray, is yet to reveal their names, genders, or faces.
The couple’s night out comes after The Sun revealed Perrie tried to quit Little Mix two years ago.
During a sit-down meeting, their Confetti Tour – due to take place in 2020 but later delayed to 2022 – was discussed and Perrie said she wanted to hit the road with the girls one last time.
However, in early October 2020 the group hit another bump when Jesy Nelson called a meeting telling the girls she couldn’t continue – weeks before she announced her exit in December.
Following the recording of the video for their No1 hit Sweet Melody, Perrie, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall met with their management team after filming an episode of their BBC show The Search, where they talked about continuing as a three.
An insider said: “This idea that everyone was happy in the band prior to Jesy leaving is a smokescreen.
“Perrie actually told the band she was thinking about leaving in 2019 which prompted a sit down with management.
“In the end she agreed it wasn’t the right time and they talked about the Confetti tour which was delayed due to Covid – it was known that after the tour Perrie would bow out of the group.
“Then in an October 2020 meeting Jesy made it clear she was suffering and she felt like she couldn’t continue. It didn’t come out of the blue for the girls as Jesy suffered a panic attack live on Radio 1 just weeks before and it was Perrie who jumped in and covered her vocals.
“Again the issue of the tour came up and Jesy said she would do it so long as Covid didn’t delay it as she didn’t think mentally she could cope with another year in the group.
“Things panned out differently as her mental health deteriorated and everyone thought it best to speed up plans.”
