Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards ‘thought she was going to die’ ahead of tour post-birthMay 7, 2022
Perrie Edwards has revealed she "thought she was going to die" as she prepared to go back on tour with her Little Mix bandmates months after giving birth to her baby boy.
The 28 year old welcomed her son Axel with partner Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, also 28, in August 2021 and eight months later she and her pals Jade Thirlwall, 29, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, headed out on the road for their Confetti tour.
With just one week to go for their final performance before going on a hiatus, the group got together for an interview with The Sun, where Perrie explained she and Leigh-Anne, who welcomed twins with fiancé Andre Gray last year, had intense "baby brain" during rehearsals.
"I feel like me and Leigh-Anne should have had a note from the doctor saying, ‘Perrie and Leigh have baby brain, go easy on them today’," the blonde beauty shared.
She continued: “Baby brain is real! Jade would pick up the routine in two seconds and we’d be there for an hour doing the simplest of things and then totally forget what it was.
“I’ve never struggled so hard for a tour. I thought I was going to die! Our bodies weren’t ready, our minds weren’t ready."
Perrie went on to praise Jade for keeping "morale and positivity up" as without it, she didn't know if they would make it in time for the tour start date.
Jade was equally in awe of the two mums for being able to "adapt" after giving birth as she shared: “Perrie and Leigh-Anne have had to adapt after having kids and being able to go into full-on rehearsal mode while breastfeeding and having the babies there was so amazing."
The band's interview comes after Perrie was recently captured on film by by her hairstylist Aaron Carlo backstage at Little Mix's Confetti tour on Sunday 1 May in Cardiff as she rocked her son whilst sporting biker shorts and a sweater.
The video showed a rare glimpse of baby Axel as Perrie's hairstylist captioned the adorable Instagram video: "'Got dinner AND a show today."
Prior to this Perrie shared a selection of photos of her and her son in matching Little Mix black tracksuit hoodies. In one photo, Axel watched his first ever concert with his mum whilst protected by large blue noise-cancelling headphones
Her caption read: "We were in matching Little Mix tracksuits but in true baby style he s**t everywhere. But here we are! Watching his first ever show."
