They are now doting parents to a baby boy called Axel who was born in August 2021, three months after Perrie's surprise pregnancy announcement. The family of three live in Surrey in a chic home they share with Perrie's cousin and friend, Ellie Hemmings.

They may have only just announced their engagement, but Perrie has hinted that she was ready for marriage in the past.

The couple went public with their romance in 2017

Back in 2018, Perrie referred to Alex's mum as her 'mother in law', and the following year she joked about taking his surname after spelling it wrong. When fans pointed out that she had wrongly added an 'e' to Chamberlain, she responded: “It’ll be way easier to spell when it’s my second name and I have to write it all the time."

Meanwhile, in November 2020, Perrie praised Joe Wicks' romantic proposal to his wife Rosie in the Maldives. "I'd like it to be the traditional way," she said, and added of her beau: "I hope he's watching this and heard Joe's incredible story. Four years we've been together."
