Leigh-Anne Pinnock twins names

In summer 2021, two thirds of girl group Little Mix welcomed three sets of tiny toes - Perri Edwards welcomed a son with boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock gave birth to twins with her fiancé Andre Gray.

While Perri chose to share adorable pics of her newborn and his cute name - Axel – Leigh-Anne has kept her family under wraps and we've still not learned the twins' names or their genders, telling The Telegraph in November, “I’m just gonna keep it to myself.”

Speaking of becoming a mum, she said in the same interview, “You can’t plan anything. Even when you want to feed them at a certain time, it never goes to plan."

She and Alex have also decided to keep their little ones' faces off of social media for the time being, placing emojis over them in every ADORABLE family photo.
