Shortly after sharing the news of their pregnancies, Perrie opened up on the tearful moment she and Leigh-Anne discovered they were both pregnant in an emotional Zoom meeting.

Perrie explained in a previous interview in May that the group need to plan things years in advance in a Tik Tok interview.

She added how it was in one of those meets that news of her pregnancy came out – as well as Leigh-Anne’s and their manager Samantha Cox.

Perrie 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.”
