Auntie Jade is in full force.

Jade Thirlwall is absolutely beaming after the news broke of her two bandmates giving birth, and she couldn’t be any more proud of them.

Sharing her joy for Perrie and Leigh-Anne, who both welcomed their babies this week, Jade was gushing with pride on her Instagram story late last night.

Jade wrote: “My heart is honestly bursting for my sisters.

“Unbelievably proud of these women for handling their pregnancies like the Queens they truly are and bringing a little little mix into the world.

“Love you @leighannepinnock @perrieedwards. Can’t wait to be the cool Auntie Jade lol.”

And she didn’t stop there, she also congratulated Leigh-Anne’s sister Sairah and their manager Sam Coxy on the birth of their babies too.

She added: “What a beautiful bond these babies will have.”

Announcing the news that she was pregnant earlier this year, Leigh-Anne said: “We’ve dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true… we can’t wait to meet you.”

While Perrie announced hers around the same time, saying: “So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate. We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!”

Leigh-Anne and Perrie also spoke about the moment they found out about each other’s pregnancies in a recent TikTok Live interview.

The girls gave birth only a matter of days between each other, so it was a shock for them to discover they were even expecting babies at the same time.

Leigh-Anne, 29, announced her pregnancy with fiancé Andre Gray just ahead of Perrie, 27, who is also expecting her first child with partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“We were on a work Zoom and we were chatting about things that were coming up in the schedule because being in Little Mix, our lives are blocked out two years in advance,” Perrie said.

“And I was on Zoom to management and I thought, ‘I wont’ be able to do that, I probably won’t be able to do that. Oh no, I’m ruining everything!’

“So I messaged my manager, Sam, and I was like, ‘Sam, I need to talk to you ASAP.’ And she called me straight away and was like, ‘you’re pregnant.’ I was like, ‘how’d you know that?’ and she was like, ‘because I am too.’

“Then she went, ‘please can I add somebody to the call?’ and I was like, ‘no, I’m really nervous, it’s very early, I don’t wanna tell anybody.’ And she was like, ‘do you trust me?’

“So she added someone to the call and then I just hear this voice come out and she goes, ‘Perrie? You too?!’ and then we just cried our eyes out. We couldn’t believe it!”
