Future Mom: Ellie Goulding spoke candidly about how she was able to keep the news about her baby a secret for so long during an interview at Sunday brunch this weekend.

‘But that was really only in the shops, I didn’t go anywhere else. When he went out for a walk, he kept it covered. However, it wasn’t that difficult, because of the confinement, I haven’t really seen anyone. ‘
A resplendent Ellie wrapped a multicolored sweater and flowy dress around her stomach as she chatted.

The Starry Eyed singer said she became pregnant during a trip to celebrate her first anniversary in Italy last August.
Ellie’s last major appearance was at the V&A Museum that month and she has spent the duration of the lockdown at her home in Gloucestershire.
She said: ‘We did the only show. I was pregnant and had no idea. That was [around] the moment Caspar and I left briefly when we were allowed for our first anniversary, and that was basically when we found out.
‘It was crazy because it was our first anniversary. That was not the plan. The idea of getting pregnant did not seem to be a reality.
Getting pregnant made me feel human. I want a better word than feminine [but]”I have curves that I’ve never had before.” I am enjoying it. My husband is enjoying it.
Fun: When asked how the pregnancy had been for her and how she kept it a secret, she said, ‘It’s different … I stole my husband’s coat for about six months.’
Not long ago: A glowing Ellie wrapped a multicolored sweater and flowy dress around her stomach as she chatted.
Show stop: Ellie looked radiant in a vast blue tulle gown in behind-the-scenes snapshots of her appearance on Graham Norton in an Instagram post on Friday.
Ellie admitted that being pregnant during a pandemic felt like a lonely experience, but felt that complaining about being pregnant was taboo.
But while she knows the baby’s gender ‘by default’ when the scan was done, she admits that she wouldn’t like to have any kind of gender reveal and that she just wanted a healthy baby.
Ellie and Jasper met in 2016 after sitting next to each other at a dinner hosted by their mutual friend, Princess Eugenie.
The couple tied the knot in a star-studded wedding at York Minster in August 2019, attended by everyone from the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson to actress Sienna Miller to singers Katy Perry and James Blunt.
Congratulations: Ellie announced that she was expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling on Tuesday.
