Little Mix aren't ready for children.

The girl group - which includes Perrie Edwards who is engaged to One Direction's Zayn Malik, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock - are all in relationships but they don't see themselves as old enough to start having kids.

Jade admitted to new magazine: ''We're babies ourselves, so I don't feel like any of us will be ready to have one for a good few years yet.''

The 'Move' hitmakers insist there isn't one particular mother hen among the group, and they all have different roles.

Leigh-Anne explained: ''Jade gets us out of really awkward situations. If we're in an interview and we don't know how to answer something, she'll save us.

''Jes is so funny, she'll do an accent and always make us laugh. If you're upset, you go to Jes and she'll make you feel better. Perrie is the little sunshine ... she's like a little baby.''

Jade added: ''Leigh-Anne is the peacemaker. And she also gets us all pumped up for our performances.''

The group have matured a lot since winning the UK version of 'The X Factor' in 2011, but they don't worry about alienating their young fans by dressing provocatively.

Jade said: ''There's not really a need to worry. We just wear what we want to wear and what we're comfortable in, and that's it really.''
