Jade Thirlwall has admitted she didn't believe her Little Mix bandmates when they told her they were pregnant at the same time.

The 28 year old is the only member of the X Factor winning band not expecting her first child after Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29, and Perrie Edwards, 27, both revealed they were pregnant days apart.

Opening up on the moment she was told her bandmates were pregnant, Jade said: "They called us together on the phone. I had a little cry. It was amazing and I am so happy for them both."

However, she admitted: "I thought it was a joke at first, I was like 'Come on…' It was a lot to take in."

In an interview hosted on the group's official TikTok page, Leigh-Anne asked: "So you didn't expect it? A little bit?"

Jade responded: "I knew you both wanted to have babies, I suppose it did make sense.

“Once you'd said it and it started to make sense, it dawned on us," she continued.

In the same interview, Perrie revealed how Jade had faked back pain during a video shoot to cover up for her friend's pregnancies.

Perrie revealed of the shooting of their Confetti video: "We were pregnant at the time and so out of breath, but we didn't want anybody to know… so like choreographers and things.

"We didn't want anyone to know so Jade was going ‘oh my back’ and she was joining in!

"Leigh-Anne was going 'my back hurts' and Jade would go: 'Oh my back, I know, my back is gone!'"

Jade then jokingly added: "Any excuse for me to sit out for five minutes… I was just like 'yeah me too!'"

A smiling Perrie then added: "We were all in it together!," before revealing the emotional meeting where the girls discovered one another’s pregnancies.

The singer said: "We were on a work Zoom and we were chatting about things that were coming up in our schedule because in Little Mix we are blocked out two years in advance.

"I was thinking, 'I won't be able to do that'," she said. "I messaged my manager and she called me and said, 'You're pregnant'.

"I was like, 'How do you know? And she said, 'Because I am pregnant'. Then she said, 'Can I add someone to the call?'.

"I just heard this voice that said, 'Perrie! You too!' And then we just cried our eyes out."
