Perrie Edwards and her boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are today celebrating their impending birth with an incredible elaborate baby shower.

The Little Mix star and her England striker beau are expecting their first child after four and a half years together, and gave a hint to the sex with the colours of her decorations.

Set inside a lavish marquee with soft white draped fabric, Perrie and Alex welcomed friends and family as they get ready to become first-time parents later this summer.

A person-sized hot air balloon made from beige, grey and pale pink balloons greeted guests as they entered, with a cute teddy bear sitting in the basket with a pink ribbon around its neck – prompting rumours the couple are having a baby girl.

Another rainbow platter of fruit – strawberries, oranges, lemons, kiwis, grapes, passionfruit and blackberries – was on offer for anyone fancying a healthy snack.

The table groaned under the weight of the desserts, featuring beige macarons, individual sponge cakes, biscuits, gold-sprayed sugared almonds and piped meringues.

An enormous four-tiered cake was the crowning glory of the shindig, featuring beautiful fresh flowers in shades of cream and pink.

More fresh rose petals were scattered around the base, while a cake topper reading Oh Baby poked out of the top.
