We really can't keep up with all the exciting baby announcements so far this year - and we're still in February. The latest happy news comes from the lovely Ellie Goulding who has just revealed she's expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling.

Ellie announced her pregnancy with a photoshoot for Vogue magazine, which was taken at her cosy Gloucestershire home. Showing fans her bump for the very first time, the singer said she's now 30 weeks along.

She told the publication she "had no idea" she was pregnant when she did a virtual performance of her fourth album, Brightest Blue, at London's V&A Museum in August, and said they later found out on their anniversary.

"It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary," she shared. "That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn't seem like it could be a reality. Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human."

She added, "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.”

Ellie also spoke candidly about how she's found her pregnancy journey so far, revealing she struggled with sickness and tiredness. "I feel like it’s a taboo to talk about pregnancy as being challenging," she added. "It’s not always serene and like you’re not always glowing. I’m not saying that every second of this pregnancy has been miserable. It’s not always going to be easy. [But,] I have a newfound respect for any woman who has children."

Ellie and Caspar tied the knot at York Minster Cathedral in September, 2019 with the singer wearing a Victorian-inspired Chloe wedding dress. Sharing pictures of the day on Instagram at the time, she wrote, "This weekend I married the love of my life, in God’s own country, surrounded by the people I cherish."

Huge congratulations Ellie and Caspar!
