Singer Ellie Goulding and husband Caspar Jopling have welcomed their first child.
Jopling shared the joyous news on his Instagram Story on Sunday evening, writing: "Mum and baby both happy and healthy :-) Extremely grateful."
Posting a photo of a bouquet of flowers, he 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."
Art dealer Jopling and Goulding, known for hits including "Love Me Like You Do", "Burn" and "Starry Eyed", announced their engagement in August 2018. A year later, they were married in a ceremony at York Minster cathedral.
Goulding, who released her fourth album Brightest Blue in 2020, announced the couple were expecting their first child in February of this year.
In a subsequent interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Goulding said she had waited until she was 30 weeks pregnant to share the happy news with her fans.
"Just a few more weeks to go. And then I will be a mum... It still feels strange to say those words out loud," she said at the time. "I needed time to get my head around it. Last year I released an album and I'd finished writing a book."
The singer, 34, continued: "Then, after living in lockdown, walking around in my husband's big coats to hide my bump and living in different places in Oxfordshire and London, we moved into a new house. Our house. It felt like we had these proper roots and it was the right moment to say something – I'd also just bought a new bath that I was very proud to show off in the photographs!"
