Edwards' announcement comes almost one week after her fellow Little Mix member, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, revealed that she's also pregnant, expecting her first child with fiancé Andre Gray.

Pinnock, 29, posted images from a maternity photo shoot, including some of her soccer star fiancé 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. ❤️😍"

In the comment section of Edwards' Monday morning announcement, Pinnock wrote, "Arghhhhhhhh so so so happy for you both! And so bloody happy we get to go on this journey together! Love you so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️."

Edwards first became romantically linked with Oxlade-Chamberlain in November 2016, according to Cosmopolitan U.K., which was one year after ex Zayn Malik called off their two-year engagement. The singer made her relationship with Oxlade-Chamberlain Instagram official in February 2017 when she posted a photo kissing him in front of the Eiffel Tower, captioning it simply, "Him."
