After the final whistle blew, Perrie and Axel joined the midfielder (28) on the iconic pitch for a series of cute snaps.

Perrie has previously gushed about motherhood, saying: "Most amazing experience of my life, literally can't explain how amazing it was. He [Axel] is just the best."

Alex and Perrie started dating following the high-profile singer's split from fiancé Zayn Malik.
