The singer and husband Caspar Jopling, who tied the knot in 2019, are expecting their first child together.
Ellie Goulding is expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling, and is already 30 weeks pregnant.
The 'Love Me Like You Do' singer made the surprise announcement in a recent interview with Vogue, telling the publication how she discovered she was pregnant while celebrating her one-year wedding anniversary.
She revealed she had "no idea" that she was already expecting when she made her last major public appearance in August for a live-streamed show at the V&A Museum.
The 34-year-old said: "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."

Goulding also opened up about the emotional impact of being pregnant during a pandemic in the interview.
"You have your partner, and you have your friends, but in a pandemic, it can feel particularly lonely," she said.
The singer wed the art dealer in a star-studded ceremony at York Minister on August 31, 2019, after dating for two years.
300 people attended the couple's big day, with the likes of Princess Eugenie, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry, and James Blunt on the invite list.
