Ellie Goulding officially enters motherhood!
Sunday, May 2, Goulding’s husband Caspar Jopling announced in an Instagram story that she has given birth to their first child.
“Mum and baby both healthy and happy :),” he captioned a photo of a floral arrangement. “Extremely grateful.”
He continued, “I don’t ever address the public attention that comes with Ellie’s job. But during this magical and personal moment we would really appreciate being able to enjoy our privacy .. thank you x.”
Goulding said yes to Jopling in 2018 and got married a year later in August 2019 with a star-studded wedding ceremony. Jopling announced their engagement over a sweet Instagram post that got everybody swooning.
“I get to spend the rest of my life with this truly extraordinary and beautiful, beautiful person,” he wrote at the time. “No one has ever made me feel more full of life, knowledge, happiness, or love. Hope, passion, confidence, and more love. There is no one I have ever been more complete with and there is no one I will ever feel more complete with.”
The British singer first announced her pregnancy in a February interview with Vogue. At that time, she was 30 weeks along.
“It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary. That was not the plan,” she shared with the magazine. “The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality.”
“Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human,” the artist continued. “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.”
However, because of coronavirus regulations, Ellie also shared that her pregnancy a “lonely” experience.
“It wasn’t something I had planned for right now,” she explained. “I knew it was a more solitary journey because of what’s going on.”
On April 2, Ellie shared two maternity photos on Instagram captioned “Instagram vs. reality.” One photo is Ellie all dolled up in a pool with a pink gown, while the next photo shows she’s at home in a casual t-shirt.
