The 'Love Me Like You Do' singer made a rather low-key announcement today (August 7).
While other famous faces may choose to announce such big news on social media, Ellie and her boyfriend Caspar Jopling went for the old-fashioned newspaper ad option.
Ellie and Caspar confirmed their engagement in The Times' personal announcement section.
The couple have been dating for just over a year.
The notice read: "Mr C.W.F. Jopling and Miss E.J. Goulding. The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands."
26-year-old Jopling studied at Eton and Harvard, before joining Sotheby's auction house where he works in strategy and contemporary art.
He also represented Team GB as a rower at the 2010 Youth Olympics. The couple moved in together earlier this year, and split their time between London and New York.
Ellie Goulding has previously dated ex-McFly bassist Dougie Poynter, presenter Greg James and DJ Skrillex, and was once romantically linked to Prince Harry.
