Ellie Goulding is expecting her first child with her art dealer husband, Caspar Jopling.
The singer has been keeping out of the public eye in recent months but has now debuted her growing baby bump.
Ellie announced her big news at 30 weeks pregnant, confessing it was easy to keep the news private as she hadn’t been photographed.
She made her last major public appearance at the V&A Museum back in August.
Speaking to Vogue, she shared her incredible good news and said that it was a special day for the couple when they found out they were becoming parents.
‘It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary. That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality,’ she told the publication.
‘Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly, [but]—I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.’
She went on to say that she was pregnant during her last performance but wasn’t aware of her good news at the time.
Ellie admitted that she didn’t believe that she was pregnant when she first found out and added that she struggled with her new cravings after eating a very healthy diet.
The singer confessed that it was a ‘lonely’ time as she hadn’t planned to get pregnant and wasn’t sure where to start.
‘The sickness and tiredness was nothing I’d ever experienced before. I feel like it’s a taboo to talk about pregnancy as being challenging,’ she confessed. As a result, Ellie now has a newfound respect for women who have children.
Considering Ellie is already 30 weeks along, the couple are likely to be welcoming their first child in the coming weeks. How exciting!
