Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock is pregnant with her and Andre Gray's first child- so when did they get engaged and how long have they been together?
The 'Confetti' singer got engaged to the professional footballer on their fourth anniversary on 29 May and now they are expecting a little one!
She made the announcement on Instagram, saying:
"We've dreamed about this moment for so long and we can't believe the dream is finally coming true... we can't wait to meet you."
How long have Leigh-Anne and Andre been together, and how did they meet? Here’s everything we know about their relationship...
Andre proposed to Leigh-Anne on their fourth anniversary after decking out their huge garden with fairy lights and making a cosy area covered with blankets before he popped the question.
Revealing the news on Instagram Andre wrote: “Let the caption speak for itself this time,” alongside a photo of a teary Leigh-Anne proudly showing off her engagement ring.
He also posted an adorable picture of her shocked reaction when he got down on one knee.
The pop star and her footballer beau have always been dubbed the first to get married by Leigh-Anne’s bandmates and Leigh-Anne has long made it clear she was eager to have a big beautiful wedding.
Leigh-Anne and Andre met in Marbella in May 2016 when they were on separate holidays with their friends.
The Little Mix star made their romance 'Instagram official' in January 2017, when she shared a loved-up picture with the footballer on her feed.
She captioned it, 'gonna miss this one'.
The pair have been living together since 2018, with them having a chance to spend more quality time together during the country's first lockdown last year as they're usually busy with their very hectic respective careers!
Reminiscing about all the fun they had together during that time last year, Leigh-Anne shared some seriously adorable throwback snaps of her and Andre as they enjoyed the sun in their huge garden.
"Anyone for a cheeky lockdown throwback?", she penned, alongside the cutest snaps of the engaged couple!
After feeling convinced she would get married this summer, Leigh-Anne told Daily Star during lockdown: “The wedding is probably not going to happen now because we can’t go anywhere.
“He's probably not going to [want to] do it in the house. So it looks like my dream is officially over," she added.
"I've not really been planning it but every girl has got the idea of what they want, we'll see, it is a dream of mine."
How wrong she was!
