Perrie Edwards has revealed her nickname for boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is ''squishy''.

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)''

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.''
