The Little Mix star is expecting her first child with fiancé Andre Gray.
The happy couple announced the news with a lavish photoshoot in May.
The singer is currently relaxing ahead of the birth, while she no doubt prepares to enter motherhood.
The news came as her band mate and close friend, Perrie Edwards, also announced her pregnancy.
Also pregnant with her first child, the pair revealed how they found out they were both expecting at the same time.
‘We were on a work Zoom and we were chatting about things that were coming up in our schedule because in Little Mix we are blocked out two years in advance,’ Perrie revealed in a TikTok interview.
‘I was thinking, I won’t be able to do that. I messaged my manager and she called me and said, “You’re pregnant”. ‘I was like, “How do you know?” And she said, “Because I am pregnant”. Then she said, “Can I add someone to the call?”
‘I just heard this voice that said, “Perrie! You too!” And then we just cried our eyes out. What timing! It wasn’t planned.’
Fans were overjoyed at the news that the pair would be expecting their first-borns at the same time.
Leigh-Anne shot to fame after being put in Little Mix, the girl group which ended up winning The X Factor in 2011.
The band has remained together ever since, with former band mate Jesy Nelson leaving earlier this year.
