Ellie announced her pregnancy in February after discovering she was expecting on their first wedding anniversary in August in the month after she released her fourth album Brightest Blue. In an interview with Vogue, when she was 30 weeks pregnant, she said the news had been a surprise.

"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," she said.

Congratulations Ellie and Caspar!
