What did Betfair say?

A spokesperson for Betfair said: “Little Mix fans were overjoyed to see Perrie Edwards follow her band-mate Leigh-Anne Pinnock in announcing her pregnancy.

“Ellie is the name of Perrie’s best friend at a 5/2 that is the favourite girls’ name – while Henry, also at 5/2 is a nod to Arsenal fan Oxlade-Chamberlain’s hero growing up, Thierry Henry.
