Ellie, who married art dealer Caspar Jopling, 29, in 2019, announced she is eight months pregnant with her first child earlier in the week and revealed her bump for the first time in stunning at-home shots taken for Vogue Magazine. 

She was planning to kick of the UK tour in just two months, however her baby news has come ahead of the launch of the now-postponed events. 

Her full statement read: ‘It’s become clear that my tour can’t go ahead as planned in April-May. I am absolutely gutted … my live show is the beating heart of what I do and trust me I want (and need!) that rush of live music as much as you all…

‘We’ve been lucky enough to be able to reschedule the full tour to later on this year, October 2021. For all of you that have already bought tickets. I’m sorry…

‘I’m counting on you to bring even more of the Brightest Blue energy to the shows when they happen. Your tickets remain valid for the new dates, and you will be emailed directly from your ticket provider with further show information.’ 

In her big baby reveal, she revealed she was expecting during a TV appearance and did not know, however has since kept a low profile. 

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, —I have curves I’ve never had. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.’ 

The singer said she had been enjoying a good streak of fitness before finding out her baby news. She said back in May 2020 that was no longer adopting a vegan diet. 

Not long: In the post shared on Thursday, she added a caption reading: 'It’s become clear that my tour can’t go ahead as planned in April-May. I am absolutely gutted ... my live show is the beating heart of what I do and trust me I want (and need!) that rush' (pictured in 2019)

And Ellie has now said that since finding out she is expecting, she went from ‘smug health freak to craving McDonald’s’ and ‘had a completely different body and energy.’ 

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 in having any sort of gender reveal and just wanted a healthy baby.
