    The singer's husband Caspar Jopling revealed the news on his Instagram Story, gesturing to their new arrival by posting a screenshot of the current world population with just one more person added.

    "I don't ever address the public attention that comes with Ellie's job," Jopling continued. "But during this magical and personal moment we would really appreciate being able to enjoy our privacy...Thank you."

    Back in February, Goulding told Vogue that having a baby was "not the plan": "The thought of getting pregnant didn't seem like it could be a reality."

    Goulding also opened up about how pregnancy can be "challenging" as well as changes in her life that occurred as a result: “I have curves I've never had before. I'm enjoying it. My husband's enjoying it.”

    Congratulations to Ellie and Caspar on the new addition to their family!
