Leigh-Anne Pinnock has reportedly bought back her stolen engagement ring after tracking it down at a pawnbrokers.
The 29-year-old Little Mix star, who is also expecting her first child with Andre Gray, has luckily retrieved the stunning £40,000 engagement ring that went missing from her home.
At the end of last month, Leigh-Anne was left distraught after her engagement ring disappeared from the couple's bedroom while they were moving house.
According to The Sun, a pawnbroker later reached out to the couple after spotting the bespoke encrusted gold band before Leigh-Anne and Andre bought it back.
The publication also went on to claim that the stolen ring had exchanged hands at least seven times before it landed in the possession of the pawnbroker.

While the lovebirds are relieved to have finally retrieved the stunning ring, an investigation continues into how it went missing in the first place.
A friend close to Leigh-Anne has told The Sun that the most important thing for the couple was the ring's sentimental value.
“It’s amazing really, but they actually managed to get the ring back. It had gone through seven different pawn shops before the final one realised what it was and called Andre," the insider told the publication.
