This has pretty much sent Pez's fans into meltdown

Perrie Edwards has seemingly made her relationship with footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain official by posting a first photo of him on Instagram – and it’s ADORABLE.

The Little Mix star shared a snap of Arsenal player Alex smiling whilst sitting at a dinner table with his and Pez’s dogs sat beside him. Awww!

Perrie’s Pomeranian Hatchi gazes up at the camera alongside Alex’s pet Labrador Retriever and it’s ridiculously sweet.

In fact the pups are so adorbs that we almost forgot the cuteness of Perrie, 23, showing she’s a bit smitten with Alex.

The singer used a hearts for eyes emoji to caption the snap, hinting that she’s very fond of the 23-year-old sports star.

This pretty much sent her fans into meltdown, with many expressing how happy they are that Perrie seems to be loved-up again.

‘Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaahhhhh! Yes Perrie. I’m so happy for you,’ one admirer commented, whilst another wrote: ‘This caption melts my heart. You deserve this @perrieedwards’

It looks like the budding romance has the approval of Pez’s bandmates too, with Jesy Nelson cheekily writing in the comments ‘Oh I see’ with a love heart eyes emoji.

Jesy, after all, is rumoured to be dating Alex’s BFF Bradley Churchill, so lots of double dates await!

Perrie’s photo comes after she and Alex were spotted dining together at a cafe in north London on Monday afternoon after weeks of rumours that they’re an item.

The famous pair gave their biggest hint yet that something was going on last week when they started following each other on Instagram, and now Perrie’s new picture seems to confirm it!

But despite the fact that they look pretty smitten with each other, the blonde star is reportedly keen to keep the relationship as low-key as possible.

‘Perrie wants to keep her lovelife private,’ a source tells The Sun. ‘And also doesn’t want to be regarded as a stereotypical football WAG.

‘It’s early days and they’re still getting to know each other so it’s unlikely her stance will change.

‘Alex fully supports her as he too wants to be known as a footballer, not dating a pop star.’
