PERRIE Edwards’ partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has shared new pictures of their baby son Axel.
It comes after the 28-year-old Little Mix star revealed that she gave birth three weeks early – and just one day after they’d put up the nursery furniture.
In the brand new black and white photos, footballer Alex is planting a tender kiss on his little boy’s head while cradling him.
The sportsman is topless as he enjoys all-important skin-to-skin contact, with little Axel naked.
In the second photo, Alex is visibly bursting with pride as he beams down at his son, who is both his and Perrie’s first child.
He shared the pics to his Instagram page without a caption, but delighted fans with the rare look at his little one.
A follower commented: “This is so cute🥺🥺🥺🥺❤️”
While another gushed: “This is the cutest thing 😍”
And Perrie gushed: “My boys” alongside a heart emoji.
The new mum gave birth to Axel back in August – just days after her bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock welcomed twins.
However, the singer revealed at the weekend that the Little Mix babies weren’t supposed to be quite so close in age, with Axel actually due in September.
Perrie shared videos of both Alex and her dad building the furniture for the nursery as she wrote: “I can’t believe he came the day after we put up the furniture #ThreeWeeksEarly”.
Perrie kept her baby son’s name a secret for two weeks before taking to social media to finally reveal that they had called him Axel.
She broke the news alongside two adorable snaps of the newborn, which saw him wrapped up in a white blanket in a basket.
Perrie wrote to her following: “Two weeks of loving you. I’ve never felt love like this before!”
Meanwhile, Leigh-Anne, who shares her twins with fiance Andre Gray, is yet to reveal their names, genders, or faces.
