Ellie, 34, revealed she found out the happy news on her one year wedding anniversary to husband Caspar Jopling.
She told Vogue: "It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary. That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn't seem like it could be a reality. Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly, [but] - I have curves I've never had before. I'm enjoying it. My husband's enjoying it."
Ellie is now 30 weeks pregnant, and explained the sickness has been like "nothing she has experienced before".
"The sickness and tiredness was nothing I'd ever experienced before. I feel like it's a taboo to talk about pregnancy as being challenging. It's not always serene and like you're not always glowing. I'm not saying that every second of this pregnancy has been miserable. It's not always going to be easy. [But,] I have a newfound respect for any woman who has children," she added.
Ellie also explained that although she was enjoying salads at the beginning of her pregnancy, soon all she wanted was a McDonalds.
"I suddenly wanted all of the bad things! Whatever this baby did when it took over my body was like,
Hell no - I do not want broccoli, spinach, collards! I just wanted sugar and carbs."
While Ellie and Caspar do know the gender of their baby, they're not planning on a gender reveal. Ellie explained she also can't wait to get back on tour and is excited for the challenge.
"I'm excited to be a mother-but also I want to make sure that I continue to work," she said.
Ellie and Caspar married in August 2019 at York Minster, with guests including Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice and Joe Wicks.
Congratulations to Ellie and Caspar, this is the best news!
