Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has revealed her pet name for boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is "squishy", a reference to a quote from Disney Pixar movie 'Finding Nemo'.

The Little Mix star and the Liverpool F.C. soccer player have been dating since the beginning of the year and they looked more loved-up than ever in the latest photo Perrie has shared on her Instagram of the pair together.

In the pic, the 24-year-old pop beauty is seen planting a big kiss on the cheek of Alex, also 24, as they enjoy a night out, but most of interest is that Perrie has picked a pet name for the hunky sportsman that comes from a famous quote from Disney Pixar movie 'Finding Nemo'.

Perrie captioned the snap: "I shall call him SQUISHY and he shall be MINE and he shall be MY squishy! (sic)"

I shall call him SQUISHY and he shall be MINE and he shall be MY squishy! 🤗❤️

Perrie is now enjoying some much-deserved time off now that Little Mix's extensive 2017 world tour has wrapped.

But the 'Touch' hitmaker will have to clock up a lot of miles to see Alex because he is now playing for Liverpool in North West England after leaving London-based club Arsenal, whilst she still lives in the UK capital, however, Perrie is sure the distance won't be an issue for the love birds.

She previously said: "I don't think it will be difficult. It's going to be different - but that's not a problem. We'll be fine. I'm just really happy for him and very proud. I'm based in London, so I've got no plans to move up there."
