Ellie Goulding shares baby bump photos ahead of her baby’s arrival
By MIRROR | 1 month ago
Ellie Goulding has bared her baby bump in a nude photoshoot ahead of her child's arrival.
The British singer-songwriter, 34, announced she was expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling back in February.
Now Ellie has posed for a stunning nude photoshoot for PAPER magazine that sees her positively glowing with her baby bump firmly on show.
The photos see her pose either partially or fully nude but with splashes of paint and colour to cover her modesty.
When speaking to the magazine, Ellie revealed that she previously had never been able to imagine herself as a mother.
"I just never thought of myself as that womanly," she told the magazine. "I guess I have this kind of facade — or, I tried to be this archetypal, like, pop star.
"None of my friends ever expected me to have kids, basically. And I understand why they wouldn't have."
Ellie also discussed how she would have liked to have gone on tour with last year's album Brightest Blue, but maybe it was for the best considering her pregnancy.
She noted: "If I had gone on tour with the album, chances are, I would not be pregnant right now. I mean, I'm just going to be honest — they really don't go together. And obviously certain things need to occur to become pregnant."
The Starry Eyed singer explained on the BBC's Sunday Brunch back in February how she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret until that month - and it was actually quite easy.
She said: "I stole my husband’s coat for about six months, but that was really just in the shops. I didn't go anywhere else."
Goulding married Caspar Jopling back in August 2019 after announcing their engagement the year prior.
Caspar is the grandson of Michael Jopling, a former Conservative MP and a former Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
Before her relationship with Jopling, Goulding previously had romances with radio DJ Greg James, music artist and DJ Skrillex, actor Jeremy Irvine, and McFly musician Dougie Poynter.
We're wishing Ellie and Caspar all the best with their upcoming bundle of joy!
