Perrie Edwards shares adorable clip of Axel following his footballer dads footsteps

Perrie Edwards has shared an adorable video of her sweet one year old son Axel following in his footballer father's footsteps.

Axel's dad is Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and it looks like the fancy footwork skills have passed down to his son already.

Little Mix star Perrie, 29, shared a video of her lining up a ball in front of a mini goal as Axel stood on the other side of the room, and she said: "Axel Oxlade-Chamberlain lining up to take a penalty," before Axel ran around the sofa.

It sounded like Perrie's mum Debbie was holding the camera, as she could be heard saying: "Where's he going to take this penalty? To take the penalty you're going from the wrong angle."

The little boy then runs over to kick the ball as his proud mum Perrie hyped him up, and he kicked the ball straight into the back of the mini net, as Perrie shouted: "He shoots, he scores!!!" and threw her hands up in the air.

Little Axel was clearly bolstered by the praise, as he pulled the ball back from the net and shot it straight back in with his foot.

Before posting that clip, Perrie shared another adorable video of her son as he sat in his high chair, tucking into some snacks, whilst watching his dad playing football on TV.

He was absolutely adorable as he pointed at the TV and said: "Dada," with a huge smile on his little face as Perrie giggled and swung the camera round to show the football game as she laughed.

Perrie gave birth to Axel – her first child – in August 2021, mere days after her Little Mix bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock gave birth to twins.

Perrie announced Axel's birth on Instagram, sharing a number of black and white snaps of the little one, although she did not then reveal his name or gender at that time.

As she shared the snaps, Perrie wrote in the caption: "Welcome to the world baby 21/08/21" followed by a heart emoji.

Meanwhile, proud dad Alex, 28, shared the same photos of the adorable tot on his own Instagram page to share the happy news.

He wrote in the caption: "Welcome to the world little one [heart eye emoji] [red heart emoji] 21/08/21".

Perrie, Alex and Axel spent a wholesome family Christmas together, with Perrie sharing plenty of snaps to her Instagram, including one of the three of them smiling in front of the Christmas tree, and another of little Axel wearing a Christmas hat as he tucked into his vegetables.

Fans were quick to comment on how adorable Axel looked as he enjoyed his Christmas. One fan commented: "Can’t cope with his little Xmas din din".

Another shared: "This is the cutest thing ever i have tears".
