Perrie Edwards heads out for date night with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after giving birth to son Axel… as she’s seen for first time amid Jesy Nelson blackfishing row
The singer, 28, headed out with boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Manchester for the first time since welcoming their son Axel in August, as they enjoyed a lavish dinner at The Ivy.
It was also the first time Perrie has been seen amid Little Mix’s clash with Jesy Nelson, which saw Leigh-Anne Pinnock accuse Jesy of ‘blackfishing’ in leaked messages shared on social media.
Moving on: Perrie Edwards was seen brushing off the latest drama surrounding Little Mix and the band’s former member Jesy Nelson as she headed out for a date night on Thursday

Brushing the drama aside, Perrie seemed in great spirits as she was spotted heading home from the eatery with her footballer beau in tow.
The Little Mix star nailed casual chic for her evening out, as she dressed down in on-trend ripped jeans and a tailored leather blazer jacket.
Pairing her outfit with a low-cut black top underneath, Perrie added a boost to her ensemble with heeled boots and clutched onto her essentials in a chained shoulder bag.
She left her blonde locks down in a sleek and straight style and favoured natural make-up for her date night with her long-term boyfriend Alex, who cut a cool figure in a bomber jacket and dark jeans.
Enjoying a break away from their parenting duties, the couple looked relaxed as they headed out without their son Axel, now two months old.

Perrie gave birth to Axel in August, just days after her bandmate Leigh-Anne welcomed twins with her fiancé Andre Gray.
She announced her son’s arrival on social media with a black and white snap of the tot moments after his birth and added the caption: ‘Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21.’
Since then, she has shared rare snaps of her baby boy with fans on Instagram, including a post that came a fortnight after his birth. Perrie gushed: ‘2 weeks of loving you. I’ve never felt love like this before! Axel Oxlade-Chamberlain.’
While she has been seen gushing about her baby boy, Perrie has remained tight-lipped over a reported fallout between Little Mix and Jesy, who quit the band after nine years in December last year.
