Ellie Goulding is gonna be a mama!
The two were married in August of 2019.
Goulding is 30 weeks along to be exact and discovered she was pregnant during a vacation around the time of their wedding anniversary in late August.
“It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary. That was not the plan,” she shared with Vogue.
And as she is expecting her first child, pregnancy amid the coronavirus pandemic has been a rollercoaster of emotions for the 34-year-old.
“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 shared with the outlet.
However, she did note that amid a global circumstances, “it can feel particularly lonely…because it wasn’t something I had planned for right now, [and] I knew it was a more solitary journey because of what’s going on.”
And while she has kept mum on the entire experience, she is now speaking out about the challenges of being pregnant.
“The sickness and tiredness was nothing I’d ever experienced before,” she revealed.
“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.”
