‘Swollen hands and feet, bruised ribs and then chuck in a whole heap of hormones to the mix ? but then I think about what’s actually going on inside this belly and I’m mind blown… creating life… I am so proud of how far I’ve come and so grateful for this blessing.’
TV presenter Rochelle Humes, a mum of three herself, wrote ‘Incredible’ with a heart eyes emoji.
Love Island star Siannise Fudge posted: ‘Sooo beautiful’ and singer Fleur East replied: ‘Woooo! Beautiful’.
Her sister Sairah commented Leigh-Anne was ‘growing nicely’, clearly looking forward to being an auntie.
It comes after she lamented her swollen feet while on holiday as she jetted off with Andre to enjoy some quality time together before baby arrives.
Posing in a yellow bikini – from her own In A Sea Shell brand – the Sweet Melody singer said: ‘‘Hormones racing and feet are swollen af but counting my blessings everyday for the miracle growing inside me.’
Her band mate Perrie Edwards is also pregnant with her first child and previously revealed how she and Leigh-Anne found out they were both expecting at the same time.
‘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,’ Perrie revealed in a TikTok interview.
‘I was thinking, I won’t be able to do that. 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. What timing! It wasn’t planned.’
