Who is Perrie Edwards? Meet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's Little Mix girlfriend

The pair have been dating since the back end of 2016 and are regularly seen sharing images together on their social media channels

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has lived his adult life in the public domain.

Since emerging as a talented Southampton graduate and then throughout his seven-season spell at Arsenal, all eyes have been on the young England international.

And his current relationship has been no different, with girlfriend Perrie Edwards regularly sharing the couple's favourite moments to their millions of social followers.

But who is she, and what does she do for a living? Goal  brings you everything we know about Edwards and the Liverpool star.

Who is Perrie Edwards?

Edwards was born in 1993 in South Shields to parents Alexander Edwards and Deborah Duffy. She has an older brother, Jonnie, and a younger half-sister named Caitlin Edwards.

After auditioning for the eighth series of X-Factor in 2011, Edwards was selected alongside Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock as a member of girl-band Little Mix - a four-piece formed by Simon Cowell who later went on to become the first group to win the competition.

Little Mix would then become the first girl group since the Pussycat Dolls to reach the US top five with their debut album, DNA , in 2012, as well as earning the highest debut US chart position by a British girl group.

The group have since released three other studio albums, titled Salute , Get Weird , and Glory Days , and have enjoyed worldwide fame through their global tours.

Edwards was previously in a relationship with former One Direction member Zayn Malik, with whom she shared a £5 million mansion in north London.

The pair met in 2012, got engaged in 2013, and then broke up in 2015, with Edwards moving into a £800,000 property in Surrey.

How did she meet Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

The pair were rumoured to have started dating in November 2016 when Oxlade-Chamberlain was playing for Arsenal.

And though little was known about the pair's relationship at the time, they took to social media in early 2017 with Edwards sharing a snap of 'the Ox' and her dogs at her home.

Speculation surrounding the couple returned when Edwards deleted the post, however, and the pair were questioned by their supporters about a potential break up. 

Soon after, they posted a picture of the two sharing a kiss in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, officially confirming their relationship to the world.
