Singer Ellie Goulding gave birth to her first child with husband Caspar Jopling over the weekend, confirming the news in an Instagram post on Sunday (May 2). According to EW, former Sotheby's art dealer Jopling announced the news in a Story, writing, "Mum and baby both healthy and happy. Extremely grateful."

Jopling, 29, and Goulding, 34, announced they were expecting a baby back in February. In his Story Jopling elaborated on the birth, writing, "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."

Goulding and Jopling have been chronicling her pregnancy on their social feeds, with Jopling posting a snap of the singer in nothing but a giant fringed hat and long blonde hair covering her naked body in a snap last month in which he wrote, "My best friend is pregnant btw (with my new best friend) xx."

Back in February, the songwriter announced the happy news to Vogue UK in an interview in which she revealed that she found out she was pregnant around the last time she performed. The gig in question was at London's Victoria and Albert Museum last August for The Brightest Blue Experience livestream concert that supported her fourth studio album.

"We did the one show. I was pregnant and had no idea," she told the mag. "That was [around] the time when Caspar and I went away briefly when we were allowed to for our one-year anniversary, and that’s basically when we found out. It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary. That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality. Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly, [but] -- I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it."
