Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards has announced that she and partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are engaged.
On Saturday night, the chart star shared photos of the moment Alex popped the question to her Instagram page, sharing her excitement with her followers.
“Last night the love of my life fell to one knee,” she said of the Liverpool midfielder. “And I said… YES!”
Congratulatory messages came in from a number of Perrie’s famous friends, including former bandmate Jade Thirlwall, who commented with a tearful emoji.
Jade also celebrated the occasion by re-sharing Perrie’s post on her own Instagram story.
“I’m going to have 10 of these to celebrate,” she joked, alongside a snap of herself holding a drink in front of a Little Mix poster.
Perrie and Alex confirmed reports that they were a couple in 2017 and moved in together two years later.
Last year, Perrie announced she was pregnant with the couple’s first child, just days after then-bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock publicly revealed she was also pregnant.
She gave birth to a son, Axel, in August 2021.
Perrie is best known for being a member of the chart-topping girl band Little Mix, which formed on The X Factor in 2011.
After over a decade together, the trio announced late last year that they were taking an indefinite hiatus as all three members of the group are expected to embark on solo careers in the near future.
Meanwhile, Alex started his professional football career at the age of 17 when he signed for Southampton and later played for Arsenal. He has been part of the Liverpool FC team since 2017.
