Prior to the shoot, Ellie’s last major appearance was at the the Green Carpet Fashion Awards in Milan in October and she has since spent the duration of lockdown at home in Gloucestershire.
The singer, who married art dealer Caspar Jopling, 29, in 2019, announced her pregnancy in stunning at-home shots taken for Vogue Magazine.
Ellie’s last major appearance was at the V&A Museum that month and she has spent the duration of lockdown at home in Gloucestershire.
She said: ‘We did the one show. I was pregnant and had no idea. 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.’
Ellie admitted that being pregnant during a pandemic felt like a lonely experience but felt like complaining about being pregnant was a taboo.
But while she does know the baby’s gender ‘by default’ when she had the scan, she admits she wasn’t into having any sort of gender reveal and just wanted a healthy baby.
Ellie and Jasper met in 2016 after they were seated next to each other at a dinner arranged by their mutual friend, Princess Eugenie.
The pair got married at a star-studded wedding at York Minster in August 2019, attended by everyone from the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson to the actress Sienna Miller and singers Katy Perry and James Blunt.
Congratulations: Ellie announced she was expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling on Tuesday
