Ellie Goulding has given birth to her first child.

The singer's husband Caspar Jopling confirmed the happy news as he took to Instagram on Sunday.

In an Instagram Story he shared a picture of a bunch of flowers and wrote: "Mum and baby both healthy and happy 🙂 Extremely grateful."

He then added: "'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."

Ellie kept her pregnancy to herself for months, only announcing the news in February, in an interview with British Vogue.

At the time she said she was celebrating her first wedding anniversary last August when she discovered her happy news.

Ellie explained: "That was [around] the time when Caspar and I went away briefly when we were allowed to for our one-year anniversary, and that’s basically when we found out. 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.”

Caspar is an art dealer who works at the auction house Sotheby's in strategy and the contemporary art department.

He was educated at Eton College, and has a History of Art degree from Harvard.

Caspar and Ellie got married on 13 August 2019 in Howard Castle, a glamorous stately home.

Ellie opened up about how she feels about becoming a mother, telling British Vogue: "Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. 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."

The pop star also admitted that expecting her first child amid the pandemic has been isolating at times as she isn’t able to share the time with her friends and family.

Mum-to-be Ellie explained: “You have your partner, and you have your friends, but in a pandemic, it can feel particularly lonely."

And she said she was surprised by the reality of pregnancy.

“The sickness and tiredness was nothing I’d ever experienced before. I feel like it’s a taboo to talk about pregnancy as being challenging.

"It’s not always serene and like you’re not always glowing.
