The birth of Pinnock's little ones came just days before her fellow Little Mix member, Perrie Edwards, gave birth to her first baby.

Over the weekend, Edwards announced that she welcomed her first baby with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, a professional soccer player, on Saturday.

Edwards shared a pair of black-and-white photos of her newborn to Instagram early Sunday morning, featuring the baby's hand, ear, and foot.

"Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21 ♥️," she wrote.

Edwards, 27, announced her pregnancy back in May, posting a pair of maternity photos on Instagram that showcased her baby bump alongside Oxlade-Chamberlain, also 27.

Edwards congratulated Pinnock in the comments section of her Instagram birth announcement, writing, "Two bundles of absolute joy! I love you my Lee Lee! ♥️"

Pinnock also shared she was expecting in May, posting stunning shots from a maternity photo shoot to reveal the exciting news.

In the snaps, the "Black Magic" artist showed off her baby belly in an emerald two-piece ensemble. Her soccer star fiancé appearred in one of the photos with one hand on Pinnock's stomach and the other on her shoulder.

"We've dreamed about this moment for so long and we can't believe the dream is finally coming true," the singer captioned the post. "We can't wait to meet you. ❤️😍"

The singer announced her engagement to Gray in May 2020 after he proposed midway through their fourth-anniversary celebrations.

"I'm marrying my soul mate, the man of my flipping dreams.... am lost for words, so I think I'm just going to go cry some more. "@andregray_ I love you so much. My world is literally complete."
