Perrie Edwards shares super sweet photo series to mark son Axel's first birthday

'Axel's cake smash!'

In super cute news of the day, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards has released a gorgeous set of snaps to mark her son Axel's first birthday.

In the professionally shot series of photos, Axel, whose father is Liverpool footballer player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, can be seen smashing into his birthday cake. This itself looks pretty damn special – it's a triple tiered number, covered in pale, fluffy buttercream and adorned with a golden 'one' topper.

His adoring mum captioned the images: 'Axel's cake smash! 🎂 (theee most adorable thing I’ve ever witnessed.)'

For the shoot, Axel can be seen in front of a heart-melting photo wall of images of himself as a newborn, being cradled by his parents, as well as being introduced to Perrie and Alex's family and friends. Proving his style credentials even at this early age, he wore a knitted all-in-one, followed by the sweetest pair of blue dungarees we've ever seen.

It's not the only post Perrie has shared to celebrate the tot's birthday. Earlier this week, the singer graced us with an Instagram Reel in which she showed key moment's from Axel's first year, including the day he was taken home from hospital after being born; some sunshine-soaked holidays; strolls around the park in his pram and a few of his wobbly first steps.
