Ellie Goulding has given birth (opens in new tab) to her first child with her art dealer husband Caspar Jopling.

The couple, who announced they were expecting their first child (opens in new tab) after 18-months of being married, have become proud parents of a baby boy or girl (opens in new tab) - as the couple is yet to share more details about their new arrival.

Proud father Caspar shared a snap of a bunch of flowers on his Instagram stories and captioned them, '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 confirmed the sweet pregnancy (opens in new tab) news back in February this year, during an interview with Vogue magazine. The singer and her art dealer husband had been spending lockdown at their Gloucestershire home when they announced they were having a lockdown baby as Ellie was 30 weeks pregnant (opens in new tab) at the time.

She admitted that being pregnant made her feel "human" and that she was embracing the pregnancy weight-gain (opens in new tab).

“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,” she added.

The pair, who held their wedding (opens in new tab) on 31st August 2019, at York Minster Cathedral, have been married for 18-months.

Caspar previously gushed, 'My best friend is pregnant btw (with my new best friend ) xx' as he awaited the arrival of his first-born.

And Ellie, who is known to care about the environment, even modelled a new capsule collection from Stella McCartney showing off her baby bump in the weeks leading up to her labour.

Fans have predicted that Ellie would have a baby girl, one wrote, 'I bet you will deliver a baby girl' another put, 'This is the bumpiest I have ever seen you!!!! You’re glowing Ellie!' And a third added, 'looking stunning as always. this belly and this baby...🥺♥️ blessed family.'

But we will have to wait a little longer to see whether the couple has chosen a popular baby name (opens in new tab) for their new arrival.
