Yet before welcoming their little ones, it was business as usual for the girls as they joined bandmate Jade Thirlwall to film the music video for their catchy new track Love (Sweet Love) – one of the new singles on their upcoming album Between Us.
Both pregnant in the regal-inspired video, Leigh-Anne, 29, and Perrie, 28, – who have revealed they’ll be taking their newborns on tour with them next year – stun alongside Jade, 28, in the sensational four-minute long clip that sees them celebrating independence and self-love.
In the video the girls look incredible as they dress up as royalty, sporting golden head crowns and jewelled accessories across their fingers.
The trio are all dressed up in flowing stone-coloured dresses, with the floaty designs making sure to conceal both Leigh-Anne and Perrie’s baby bumps from view.
Making for a leggy display, thanks to a thigh-high slit at the skirt, the girls team their dresses with an embellished cape of jewels draped across their shoulders.
The video sees Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade sat on thrones while toying with a slew of secret admirers who have hunted them down at a lavish estate to try and win their affections.
