The singer’s husband Caspar Jopling revealed the news in his Instagram Story, gesturing their new arrival by posting a screenshot of the current world population with only one added another person.
“I never turn to the public attention that comes with Ellie’s work,” Jopling continued. “But during this magical and personal moment, we would really enjoy the opportunity to enjoy our privacy … Thank you.
As early as February, Goulding told Vogue that the birth of the baby was “not a plan”: “The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like a reality.”
Goulding also revealed how a pregnancy can be “challenging”, as well as the changes in her life that have resulted: “I have curves that I have never had before. I enjoy it. My husband is happy.”
Congratulations to Eli and Caspar for the new addition to their family!
