Leigh-Anne got engaged to football player Andre last May, after he proposed while the couple celebrated their anniversary in lockdown.
The British singer shared a series of photos as she unveiled her growing baby bump while sporting a green gown.
In another snap, Leigh-Anne could be seen cradling her stomach while her other half held her in a sweet embrace.
Celebrity pals and fans alike flooded the comment section, as they offered their well wishes to the Little Mix star.
Cher Lloyd penned: “Congratulations! So happy for you both!! Sending so much love.”
It comes after Little Mix was forced to postpone their upcoming Confetti World Tour, their first without Jesy Nelson, until 2022 due to the Covid pandemic.
Andre 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 about the proposal, Leigh-Anne spoke candidly on the Bumble’s My Love Is… podcast in November.
She explained that the couple were watching a film before he popped the question.
“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,” Leigh-Anne explained.
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.
Leigh-Anne and Andre first announced their engagement as they celebrated their fourth anniversary.
