Talking to Tatler recently, Ellie discussed how she didn’t tell her family and friends about her pregnancy until late on.

She said: ‘Most of my friends and family were shocked. It wasn’t on the cards, but it wasn’t off the cards either – we’d had such a wonderful first year of marriage. I didn’t tell anyone but then I got to a point when I was ready for people to know.’

On motherhood she added: ‘There’s a huge sense of camaraderie among new mums, not only dealing with being pregnant, but then breast-feeding, and just figuring it all out.

‘It seems like motherhood is a time when you can never say too much about what’s going on, and I’m grateful for that.’

The songstress also discussed meeting her now husband Caspar at a friend’s dinner party in New York in 2018 before marrying a year later at a star-studded ceremony at York Minster.

‘I was exhausted that night and I almost didn’t go. We were painfully shy around each other in the beginning, but once we had overcome that, we realised that we were really meant to be together – he’s very romantic,’ Ellie said.

The Love Me Like You Do hitmaker admitted she had decided she wanted to be single after dating other pop stars to chase the ‘romantic’ dream of being with another musician, but meeting Caspar changed her mind.

Appearing on Frankie Bridge’s Open Mind podcast, she said: ‘But no. Through my 20s, which we’ve all done, you go through relationships, you find out so much about yourself and I’m sure the other person finds out about themselves too and my conclusion was that I didn’t want to be with anyone.

‘I was like, “F**k this! I just want to be by myself.” I was in a good place, I was training really consistently, I was eating well, I was in a really good place mentally.

‘This is the perfect time for me to just really delve into myself, enjoy being with myself and enjoy that single life and stop thinking I need to be with someone, stop thinking I need to rely on somebody else for my own happiness.

‘That took forever to learn. But then I met Caspar and I was like, ‘S**t this is actually it.’ He’s my best friend, when we first met we didn’t think in a million years we’d end up together, we’re such different people but it just works.’

Despite not necessarily seeing signs of a relationship right away, there was a definite connection and Ellie – is glad she found someone who wasn’t interested in her because of her music.

She explained: ‘He sees me as a person, as a woman, as a smart person, and a funny person somehow, he laughs at my jokes, but he doesn’t see me as the musician, which I guess some people in the past may have done.

‘Even by accident they thought of me as a musician first, and my job and everything else after.

‘It took a while to get there but I got there in the end.’
