SINGER Ellie Goulding has admitted she hid her pregnancy for six months by wearing her husband Casper Jopling’s coat.
The blonde beauty, 34, shocked fans recently by revealing she was nearly eight months pregnant with her first child.
Appearing on Sunday Brunch, host Tim Lovejoy asked the hitmaker how she’d managed to keep the news secret.
Discussing how she had kept her bump literally under wraps for six months, Ellie replied: “It's different...I stole my husband's coat for about six months but that was really just in the shops, I didn’t go anywhere else.
“Out on walks, I just kept it covered up. It wasn’t really that hard, though, because of lockdown, I haven’t really seen anyone.”
Ellie revealed her surprise baby news during a chat with Vogue as she cradled her growing bump in new pictures.
"We did the one show. I was pregnant and had no idea,” she told the fashion magazine about her unexpected pregnancy.
“That was [around] the time when Caspar and I went away briefly when we were allowed to for our one-year anniversary, and that’s basically when we found out.
"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 said that after she got over the shock of her unexpected pregnancy, she felt the changes in her body both fast and slow.
“It happens really quickly, and then you almost don’t believe it at first,” she said.
"And I was kind of terrified, I suddenly wanted all of the bad things!
“You’re still eating the same, looking the same, for a while I was probably in denial."
The fitness fanatic was working on her upcoming exercise book Fitter. Calmer. Stronger. before she fell pregnant.
But suddenly she ditched the salads and found herself craving McDonalds.
"I was in such a good streak of fitness," she said.

“I started having a completely different body and different energy, I couldn’t deal with everything!
“I actually went from being smug about how healthy my salads were and my breakfasts and eating nuts and seeds, and then all I wanted was McDonalds.
"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.”
Ellie married Caspar Jopling, the son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire, in front of royalty and A-list celebrities at York Minster on August 31, 2019.
