It wasn’t too long ago when Perrie Edwards was seen supporting footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at one of his games. The two made the dating rumors circulate when they were spotted partying after the game. Now, it looks like Alex is showing some support for his rumored new girlfriend.
Perrie Edwards has been officially photographed with football ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 23. She has been super focused on her girl group Little Mix as the ladies topped the charts with their new album, Glory Days, and their new single “Shout Out To My Ex.” Edwards, 23, has been making the rounds on the dating scene as she was previously linked to actor Luke Pasqualino.
It looks like Perrie’s love life is heating up as she’s been spotted on a date with Arsenal goal scorer, reports Capital FM. The photos appeared on the Instagram account “jasminaumua” in which the young fan posts selfies with both the Little Mix blondie and the Premiere League star.
She wrote in the caption of her photo with Alex, “So apparently this guy is famous?”
The Sun first revealed that Alex and Perrie started dating last month. Though they’re taking things slowly, the pair has been spending a lot of time together — with the singer even introducing Alex to her friends and Little Mix bandmates. Alex also reciprocated the favor by introducing Perrie to his family and friends. Alex watched Perrie perform live on Sunday night (Dec. 11) before heading off backstage to meet her and congratulate her on her performance, inside sources told The Sun.
Little Mix took the stage ahead of Matt Terry’s win on Sunday, when they joined musician Charlie Puth on stage to sing their new song “Oops” before they give a sizzling performance of their other new song “Touch,” reports the Daily Mail. While all four girls put on a sexy display on stage with their matching purple outfits, it was clear that Alex only had eyes for Perrie.
“Alex is clearly smitten with Perrie and he looked like he loved the girls’ performance. He didn’t take his eyes off her throughout the entire thing and he didn’t stop smiling. Afterward, he took pictures with fans and took the time to chat people in the audience, he seems like a genuinely nice man.”
Perrie was spotted seated inside his personal box at the Emirates Stadium with her friends for the match.
“It’s very early days between Perrie and Alex,” an insider said. “There’s certainly some chemistry there and they’ve enjoyed spending time together. Both are keen to keep the relationship on the down low, they don’t follow each other on social media as they know a connection might give them away. After what happened with Zayn, Perrie doesn’t want her love life to become public knowledge.”
Another source told The Sun that although they just started dating, it’s clear that the pair is very serious about each other.
“It’s still early days between Perrie and Alex but it’s increasingly getting more serious. Her pals are pleased Alex is such a nice guy and will certainly treat her right. She’s been to watch him play at the Emirates on more than one occasion now in his private box with his family and likes how close he is with them.”
While Perrie is dating Alex, he may have had eyes for her bandmate Jade Thirwall first, reports CelebsNow. A video that was filmed a year ago has since resurfaced and shows Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock at the NBA Global Game in London without Perrie. They were interviewed by Helen Skelton and Alex himself.
Perrie is absent in the interview as she wasn’t feeling well. The interview got flirty when the singers talked about their love for tall men.
Alex said, “There’s nothing wrong with those 5ft 9 and a half guys too.”
After Leigh-Anne asks whether the ball may hit them during the game, Helen asks Alex to protect the girls.
“Jade needs protecting,” Jesy says. “She’s diddy. She’s single as well.”
“I’m sure I can help out,” Alex responded.
Jesy laughs, “Poor Jade. We just terrorize her.”
The video has since gone viral on social media with one fan writing, “And now apparently he’s dating Perrie Edwards, never give up lads.”
