Ellie Goulding Announces Engagement To Caspar Jopling After 18 Month Relationship
The pair took out an announcement in The Times to share the happy news.
The couple took out a spread in the paper, reading: “Mr C.W.F. Jopling and Miss E.J. Goulding.
“The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands.”
An insider has since told The Sun: “The couple wanted to tell friends and family first and people won't notice because her name is Elena. She's over the moon and has never felt so happy.”
Back in April, Ellie revealed that taking some time out from touring had given her the opportunity to throw everything into their relationship and had previously described her connection with Caspar as being “very special.”
In an interview with The Observer, she said: “I thought for a long time that I could never really take the time to nurture a relationship because I'm never around. I haven't been touring for the past year, so I think this is the first time I've realised what it's like to be in a relationship and learn to be with someone.
“It also helps when you find someone who is very special and understands your job. The time that I spend somewhere is always so fleeting and I'm never in one place for long.
She continued: “That can stir up emotions, you're constantly re-evaluating and changing your life plans.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
