On Tuesday, the Little Mix star took her son out for a miniature photoshoot and the youngster looked adorable next to a tiered cake that instead of candles featured the word 'One' on top. The little boy looked so sweet as he tucked into the delicious item, before having a small bath, and then posting next a number one that was filled with white balloons.

The carefully curated space boasted a large square crib, neutral-toned furniture including a chest of drawers, am chair, cloud-shaped shelving, a wide chest of drawers, an armchair and a mini moose rocking chair.

The wallpaper featured a dreamlike blue and white pattern which was complemented by cream-coloured carpets – making for a truly serene atmosphere.

Perrie and Alex dote on baby Axel

Perrie was on tour with Little Mix even when carrying Axel, and in an interview with The Sun, she reflected on the difficulties at the time.

She explained: "I feel like me and Leigh-Anne should have had a note from the doctor saying: 'Perrie and Leigh have baby brain, go easy on them today'.

"Baby brain is real! Jade would pick up the routine in two seconds and we'd be there for an hour doing the simplest of things and then totally forget what it was.

"I've never struggled so hard for a tour. I thought I was going to die!"
