Little Mix beauty Perrie Edwards has given birth to her first child.

Perrie and her footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain welcomed their first child into the world on August 21 2021.

Taking to Instagram, Perrie posted two sweet black and white photographs announcing the arrival of her new bundle of joy.

On Sunday morning (August 22) just before 9am, Perrie posted two snaps on social media, announcing the birth of their baby to the entire world.

In the photos you can clearly see a head of hair, tiny hands and tiny feet.

It seems as though the newborn baby was laying on his mother, as there was a hospital gown beneath the baby in the two snaps.

Captioning the post: "Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21", Perrie shared the black and white photograph to her 12.7 million followers, and within minutes fans flocked to congratulate the singer.

Fans of the Little Mix beauty also commented on the announcement, with many overjoyed at the news.

"My heart. Perrie. Congratulations to you and Alex. You’re going to be incredible parents," one penned.

Another wrote: "Welcome little baby! We already love you so much!"

Perrie announced she was due to give birth in May by sharing a black and white snapshot of her growing baby bump.

Perrie captioned the snap: "So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate.

"Me + Him = You.

"We can't wait to meet you baby Ox!"

In the snap Alex's arms were seen winding around Perrie's belly on the adorably intimate picture.

In another snap Perrie is seen posing with Alex, with the pair bearing huge grins.

Alex's hands gripped her hips as she wore a sleek black bra and put her bump on full display.

She then cheekily changed her Twitter bio to include the words "Baby Ox loading…"

The singer also shared the post to her Insta story, with a big eyed emoji and grey heart.

Perrie's boyfriend also posted the snap to his own Instagram account, with the caption: "Anyone got any advice on how to change nappies? So grateful and excited to become a dad. Bring on the sleepless nights!"

Just before Perrie announced she was pregnant, her mum Deborah dropped a huge hint about her pregnancy but Little Mix fans were none the wiser.

One person speculated: "Babies?! Like plural?! OMG!? *faints*."
