Edwards' engagement comes about after she and Oxlade-Chamberlain previously welcomed their first child — son Axel — in August 2021.

At the time, the musician announced his arrival on Instagram, sharing a black-and-white photo of her baby's hand, ear, and foot. "Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21 ♥️," she wrote at the time.

Edwards later celebrated her son's birth with a New Year's post on Instagram, where she looked back on 2021. There, she posted a series of memories linked to her pregnancy, including getting a sonogram, revealing her baby's gender and relaxing after his birth.

"I cooked a whole human in 2021," Edwards captioned her post.

Edwards and Oxlade-Chamberlain first began dating in 2016, but made their relationship public a year later, according to Capital FM. Edwards was previously engaged to former One Direction member Zayn Malik.
