She welcomed her first child, a baby boy called Arthur, four weeks ago.

Yet Ellie Goulding revealed she was wasting no time getting back in the gym as she shared a snap surrounded by workout equipment on Wednesday.

The new mum, 34, had a busy day, as she later shared a picture of herself getting the Covid vaccine with her 14.2 million Instagram followers.

Ellie captioned the gym selfie, ‘Hi friends #content ‘ while giving a peace sign to the camera. 

The musician donned a white T-shirt and black gym shorts, while her blonde hair was pulled back into a neat ponytail for the session.

The NHS advise waiting until after the six-week postnatal check before starting any high-impact exercise, such as aerobics or running, but gentle exercise can be undertaken as soon as you feel ready. 

If you exercised regularly before giving birth and you feel fit and well, you may be able to start earlier but it is advised you speak to your midwife, health visitor or GP beforehand.

Ellie’s snaps comes after it was revealed that she and husband Casper Jopling had named their son Arthur Ever Winter Jopling.

The announcement – under the musician’s real name, Elena – was made in The Times’ Births, Deaths and Marriages section last month, and also confirmed their newborn was born on 29 April, exactly a week prior to the reveal.

The paper’s announcement section opens with a bible quote, which Caspar, 29, quoted in an Instagram post penning: ‘It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools. Ecclesiastes 7.5’.

He added on the end: ‘[[ ps hi A.E.W.J. ]]’, in a nod to their son’s initials. The announcement is the first time the couple have revealed Arthur’s gender.

Caspar announced that Ellie had given birth just weeks after surprising fans with the news that she was eight months pregnant in Vogue.

The new dad gleefully confirmed Ellie had welcomed their son on his Instagram story as he shared a picture of a bunch of flowers and wrote: ‘Mum and baby both healthy and happy 🙂 Extremely grateful’.

 He added: ‘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’.

Following The Times’ announcement, Ellie also took to Instagram to share an image of stunning flowers sent by her record company.

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 artist revealed late last month that she was embracing her pregnancy figure.

 In an interview with The Telegraph’s Stella Magazine, 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.

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.’
