The Starry Eyed hitmaker said she became pregnant while on a trip celebrating their one-year anniversary in Italy last August.
Ellie’s last major appearance was at the V&A Museum that month, and she has spent the duration of the lockdown at home in Gloucestershire.
She said: ‘We did one show. I was pregnant and had no idea. It was [around] the time Caspar and I walked away when we were allowed to a year anniversary, and that was basically when we found out.
“It was crazy because it was a year’s anniversary. That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant did not seem like it could be a reality.
‘Getting pregnant made me feel human. I want a better word than female, [but]—I have baskets I’ve never had before. I enjoy it. My husband enjoys it. ‘

Ellie admitted that being pregnant during a pandemic felt like a lonely experience, but that it was taboo to complain about being pregnant.
But while she knows the baby’s gender ‘by default’ when she did the scan, she admits she did not want any kind of gender revealed and just wanted a healthy baby.
Ellie and Jasper met in 2016 after sitting next to each other at a dinner hosted by their mutual friend, Princess Eugenie.
The couple were married at a star-studded wedding in York Minster in August 2019, attended by everyone from the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson to actress Sienna Miller and singers Katy Perry and James Blunt.
Congratulations: Ellie announced that she was expecting her first child with her husband Caspar Jopling on Tuesday
