Ellie Goulding has called her son Arthur Ever Winter.
The popstar gave birth to her first child with husband Caspar Jopling on 29 April, with the couple welcoming a baby boy.
Now, the pair have confirmed their baby’s name, via an announcement in The Times.
‘JOPLING on 29th April 2021 to Elena Goulding and Caspar, a son, Arthur Ever Winter,’ the birth announcement in today’s newspaper read.
Art dealer Caspar, 29, shared a shot of the page and captioned it with the Bible verse included, reading: ‘It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools. Ecclesiastes 7.5.’
The new dad added: ‘ps hi A.E.W.J.’
Ellie and Caspar have form with announcements in The Times, confirming their engagement in 2018 via a clipping reading: ‘The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands.’
The Burn singer later married Caspar in a rather regal wedding at York Minster in August 2019, and wore four separate wedding dresses throughout the day and into the reception at Castle Howard.
Caspar confirmed over the weekend that their baby had entered the world, writing on his Instagram stories: ‘Mum and baby both healthy and happy 🙂 Extremely grateful.
‘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’.
Ellie, 34, had kept her pregnancy private up until she was 30 weeks pregnant, when she broke the news in Vogue.
She discovered she was expecting last August, and told the magazine: ‘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.’
The star added that because of the pandemic, pregnancy was more of a ‘solitary journey’, and led her to being more secretive and ‘protective’ over the news.
She said: ‘The sickness and tiredness was nothing I’d ever experienced before. I feel like it’s a taboo to talk about pregnancy as being challenging. It’s not always serene and like you’re not always glowing.
‘I’m not saying that every second of this pregnancy has been miserable. It’s not always going to be easy. [But] I have a newfound respect for any woman who has children.’Credit: Original article published here.
