Ellie Goulding is officially a mother!

Goulding, 34, gave birth to her first child with husband Caspar Jopling, who shared the news on Sunday in his Instagram Stories.

Jopling, 29, first hinted at the birth with a screenshot of a Google search asking “world population 2021” and raised the number by one. He then confirmed the birth of his baby with a second post.

“Mum and baby both healthy and happy. Extremely grateful,” wrote Jopling. “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.”

The “Anything Can Happen” singerfirst revealed she was pregnant in February with an exclusive interview with Vogue. At the time, Goulding was 30 weeks along and explained that the couple learned they were expecting while celebrating their first wedding anniversary.

“Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human,” Goulding told Vogue’s Alexandra Macon. “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.”

Jopling, an art dealer, and Goulding tied the knot in August 2019, stunning fans with a star-studded ceremony at an English castle. The couple began dating in 2017 after they were introduced by a mutual friend rumored to be Princess Eugenie.
