Ellie Goulding announces pregnancy with art dealer!
Ellie Gouldings last big public event was at the V&A Museum in August 2020. She explained in an interview with Vogue’s Alexandra Macon, that she was pregnant at the time without realising: ‘We did the one show. I was pregnant and had no idea.’
Ellie reveals she thinks she fell pregnant around the time the couple celebrated their one year anniversary whilst being on holiday. However, it ‘was not the plan’ and ‘the thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality.’
Ellie Goulding noted how her pregnancy journey had changed her: ‘It happens really quickly, and then you almost don’t believe it at first… You’re still eating the same, looking the same, for a while, I was probably in denial.’
As Ellie moved into her final trimester she started to notice a difference: ‘I started having a completely different body and different energy… I actually went from being smug about how healthy my salads were and my breakfasts and eating nuts and seeds, and then all I wanted was McDonald’s,’ she joked.
