Little Mix predicted pregnant Leigh-Anne Pinnock would be first member to have children #englishheadline
Little Mix predicted Leigh-Anne Pinnock would be the first member to become a mother in resurfaced clips before she announced her pregnancy on Tuesday.
Just a few days ago, the musician, 29, joined her bandmates Jade Thirlwall, 28, and Perrie Edwards, 27, as they read out a tweet about turning into ‘cool aunties’ to the mum-to-be’s child in an interview.
Another video saw the group – accompanied by former co-star Jesy Nelson – discuss who would be most likely to have a baby first during a chat in 2019, to which the broody singer said: ‘I just want a family!’

During the recent conversation with Hits Radio, the social media message read: ‘One day… some lucky people are gonna be able to say ”my mom is leigh-anne pinnock… & my aunts are perrie edwards, jesy nelson and jade thirlwall.” and vice versa.’ (sic)
‘Do you know that is so true, and it’s going to be iconic…and we’re gonna be the coolest aunties, and the coolest mums, and the coolest whatevers’, Geordie beauty Perrie said.
The expectant star – who was yet to reveal her exciting news at the time – enthused: ‘That’s really sweet!’
A funny Jade shared: ‘Me as an auntie? Are you crazy….’, before going on to reference Amy Poehler’s portrayal of Mrs. George in 2004 film Mean Girls, adding: ‘I am an auntie! We’re going to be like a ”cool mum”.’

Her bump debut comes after she was seen in a series of baggy ensembles in recent weeks, with her last appearance on Friday 30 April in London, where she wore a baggy khaki green outfit which hid her stomach perfectly.
She recently praised her footballer partner as her ‘backbone’ and admitted she finds his attitude towards race ‘inspiring’.
She said: ‘Andre is like my backbone. If I didn’t have someone like that through this experience, I don’t know what I would have done…

Leigh-Anne singer wants to be a role model for other young black girls.
She added: ‘There’s only so much you can take of feeling like you are the invisible one, or you’re being overlooked. There had to come a point where I see this as my power and I now do. It is…
‘Being black is my power. And I want young Black girls around the world to see that. One of the reasons I didn’t want to speak at the beginning was because I was so scared of offending [Little Mix fans] and losing them…
Surprise! Andre, who plays for Watford FC, proposed to Leigh-Anne at their home during lockdown
‘But I just thought: this is not about me. The reason that I am here, in this position, is for me to speak out and do something.’
It comes after Little Mix were forced to postpone their upcoming Confetti World Tour, their first without Jesy Nelson, until 2022 due to the Covid pandemic.
Andre, who plays for Watford FC, proposed to Leigh-Anne in May at their home during lockdown.
Explaining the moment Andre got on one knee, Leigh-Anne said he ‘set up candles like something out of a movie.’
Speaking on Bumble’s ‘My Love Is…’ podcast in November, she said the pair were watching a movie at the time.
She continued: ‘Then it cut out and there was pictures of us, it was playing our song, then the screen changed to ‘Will you marry me?’ and he was on one knee.’
Andre said he had been planning to pop the question to Leigh-Anne for quite some time, but struggled after the UK’s first lockdown was put into place in March.
He also said his sister stepped in to help him pull off the proposal, making sure he could make the moment as romantic as possible.
Leigh-Anne and Andre first announced their engagement as they celebrated their fourth anniversary.

Taking to Instagram, sportsman Gray posed alongside his fiancée as she showed off her diamond engagement ring shortly after accepting his proposal, while adding the caption: ‘Let the caption speak for itself this time… Hasta la muerte.’
Shortly after, Leigh-Anne commented on the news herself, writing: ‘Guys.. wtf has just happened… He bloody did it, and I said yes…
‘I’m marrying my soul mate, the man of my flipping dreams… I am lost for words, so I think I’m just going to go cry some more @andregray_ I love you so much. My world is literally complete’.
It comes after Leigh-Anne and her Little Mix bandmates Jade Thirlwall, 28, and Perrie Edwards, 27, announced they have had to postpone their Confetti tour until April 2022.
The group – who released their Confetti album in November – said in a series of tweets: ‘You know how much we love being on the road and performing every night for you all.
‘However, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we must prioritise the safety of our fans and crew and help to stop the spread.
‘Therefore we’re so sad to say that the Confetti tour will be postponed to April 2022.
‘All tickets will be valid for the corresponding rescheduled dates and we’re taking this chance to add an additional show for our fans in Cardiff. (sic)’
