    That’s very cool. What was the site you found out this info? And her mom remarried to a man with the last name Duffy. Thanks for the info tho. I’m a huge fan of Little Mix and I have a slight obsession with finding out celebs backgrounds lol.

    I think she has Welsh in her too. Edwards is a Welsh surname. If I’m wrong then I apologise.
