Perrie Edwards and boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got engaged over the weekend, after six years of dating, and her engagement ring was certainly worth the wait.
The announcement had her Little Mix bandmates and fans in tears, even more so when they saw Perrie’s stunning engagement ring!
Alongside photos of the moment Alex proposed, Perrie wrote on Instagram: “Last night the love of my life got down on one knee and I said… YES!”
Perrie’s engagement ring features a large oval diamond in the centre of an elegant gold band and is apparently incredible rare according to experts at The Diamond Pro's who spoke to Hello!
They reckon Perrie's ring is between 10 to 12 carats and 'is likely worth a half-million dollars' (£408k).
Well, Alex does have an estimated net worth of around £13.1 million and reportedly receives £120,000 a week for playing for Liverpool...
In May 2020, Perrie’s bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock got engaged to beau Andre Gray, where he gifted her a massive, cushion-cut black diamond rumoured to have cost £40,000.
Perrie has been dropping engagement hints to Alex for years after they began dating in 2016.
In an Instagram post she accidentally added an ‘e’ to her boyfriend’s second name, later responding: “It’ll be way easier to spell when it’s my second name and I have to write it all the time.”
She also referred to Alex's mum as her 'mother-in-law' back in 2018.
In May last year the couple announced they were expecting their first child, and in August they welcomed baby Axel together.
Bandmate Leigh-Anne also became a mother, to twins, just days before!
