Ellie Goulding has welcomed the arrival of her first baby.

She announced her pregnancy via an interview with Vogue earlier this year.

Ellie married Caspar, the son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire, in front of royalty and A-list celebrities.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, James Blunt, Jimmy Carr, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie led the celebrity guests that attended the wedding, with it being reported that Eugenie was the one to introduce Ellie and Caspar.

In 2018, it was revealed she had been secretly baptised at a Doncaster church ahead of her wedding, which was originally due to take place at All Saints Church in Frickley near Caspar’s family home, before the switch to York Minster.

His family live at nearby Frickley Hall and he is the son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam.

Mrs Warde-Aldam, whose family own Frickley Hall between Hooton Pagnell and Frickley, has two children with Mr Jopling who she married in 1987 - Charlotte born in 1990 and Caspar, born in 1992.

She married Charles Andrew Warde-Aldam in 1997.

The couple live at Frickey Hall in the village which was built in 1760.
