AceShowbiz - Leigh-Anne Pinnock has reportedly been reunited with her beloved engagement ring after buying it back from a pawnbroker.
The Little Mix star - who is currently expecting her first child with fiance Andre Gray - was left devastated after thieves allegedly broke into her $6.3 million (£4.5 million) Surrey mansion last month (May21) and left with her $56,600 (£40,000) emerald and diamond-encrusted gold band.
According to Britain's The Sun newspaper, Leigh-Anne was contacted by a pawnbroker who recognised the ring after seeing the publication's original story about the theft.
And after confirming it was her ring, Andre splashed out to buy it back for his wife-to-be.
"It's amazing really, but they actually managed to get the ring back," a friend of the singer's told The Sun. "It had gone through seven different pawn shops before the final one realised what it was and called Andre."
"He went round and sure enough it was her ring, so he bought it back. It was never about the money for them, it was all about the sentimental value. The main thing is Leigh-Anne has her ring back. Nothing could replace that bit of her fairytale."
A police investigation into the theft is still ongoing. As WENN went to press, no suspects had been arrested.
When news of the theft first broke out, Leigh-Anne was reportedly devastated.
A source claimed, "She accidentally left it out and when she came back, it was gone. It's hugely upsetting anyone can behave in this manner. Leigh-Anne and Andre are doing all they can to get to the bottom of it, and get their ring back. It's not about the money - it's the principle."
