Ellie and Caspar married in August 2019 at York Minster, and first learned they were expecting while celebrating their one-year anniversary last year.

The award-winning artist revealed late last month that she was embracing her new pregnancy figure. In an interview, the songwriter said: ‘A revelation: I’ve always had a runner’s body and now I have a bigger ass and these rather nice boobs!’

The fitness enthusiast also detailed her pregnancy cravings, admitting she has a penchant for tinned sardines and Weetabix Minis, and has even visited McDonald’s twice in the last eight months.

On her eating habits, the songwriter added to The Telegraph’s Stella Magazine: ‘[tinned sardines and Weetabix Minis] aren’t eaten at the same time… it was only two [times she went to McDonalds!’].

The Starry Eyed hitmaker also touched on discovering she was pregnant at eight weeks during a romantic trip to Italy for her first wedding anniversary. 

Ellie said: ‘I thought I had an iron deficiency and got blood tests, which came back fine but my progesterone levels were high… I then started struggling a bit with exercise. That was a sign for me something had changed.’
