Ellie Goulding Explains Why She Waited So Long to Reveal Her Pregnancy

Ellie Goulding is opening up about her pregnancy!

In a new interview with The Telegraph, the 34-year-old “Love Me Like You Do” singer explained why she waited until she was “30 weeks pregnant” to publicly announce her pregnancy.

“I needed time to get my head around it. Last year I released an album and I’d finished writing a book,” Ellie shared, who released her latest album Brightest Blue in July 2020, and will be releasing her fitness guide Calmer, Fitter, Stronger in September.

“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,” Ellie continued. “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!”

Ellie announced back in February that she and husband Caspar Jopling were expecting their first child together, after learning she was pregnant back in August.

“I needed that space to process what was happening,” Ellie added. “I’ve always defined myself as a touring musician. That’s who I am and what I do. Being a mother wasn’t in my mind frame, I’ve never felt any woman had to be defined by motherhood.”
