Ellie Goulding has a burning love for all things fitness and it looks like being eight months pregnant isn’t going to stop her from working up a sweat.
The Love Me Like You Do hit-maker, 34, is quite the female force of nature and after falling in love with the gym, she’s always encouraged her female fans not to be intimidating when it comes to feeling strong.
You see, Ellie is all for flexing those muscles because she loves to reap the rewards both physically, but more mentally, that exercise can have.
So, it’s no surprise then that while she is expecting her first child with husband Caspar Jopling, Ellie has made sure to still incorporate some from of exercise into her daily routine while pregnant.
She was spotted heading out on a run in London while currently eight months pregnant and seemed perfectly at home while pounding the pavements.
Ellie was dressed in gym leggings and an oversized hoodie that covered her baby bump.
She kept her hair tied back and rocked a baseball cap and face mask, while clutching onto a bottle of water, as she paced herself on her run and walk around town.
Ellie confirmed she is already eight months pregnant while revealing her exciting baby news, as she explained that she purposely chose to keep her pregnancy hidden amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In fact, Ellie recently revealed her genius hack to keeping her baby bump under wraps and that was stealing husband Caspar’s coat anytime she went out for the first six months.
Speaking live on Sunday Brunch, Ellie joked: ‘I stole my husband’s coat for about six months. But that was really just in the shops, I didn’t go anywhere else.
‘Out on walks, I just kept it covered up. It wasn’t really that hard, though, because of lockdown, I haven’t really seen anyone.’
Her appearance came after her baby announcement during an interview with Vogue, where Ellie admitted that experiencing pregnancy in lockdown was ‘lonely’ at times and it made her more ‘protective’ of keeping her news private.
Ellie also divulged that her pregnancy cravings wreaked havoc with her healthy lifestyle, as all she’s been wanting to eat is junk food – McDonald’s to be precise.
She first found out she was pregnant around her one-year wedding anniversary with Caspar in August.
The pair tied the knot at York Minister in 2019 in front of family, friends and celebrity guests, including Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.
Opening up about her relationship with Caspar, Ellie has previously said that she thinks the duo are a ‘perfect example of how marriage should be’ – although, she recently revealed that the pair hadn’t been planning on getting pregnant.
Now she is, Ellie claims being a mum-to-be has made her feel ‘human’ and both she and Caspar are enjoying the road to parenthood.
‘That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality,’ she admitted to Vogue.
Ellie added: ‘[But] becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly… I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.’
She and Caspar have been together since 2017 and announced their engagement in August 2018 – a year before their wedding.
