Ellie Goulding’s boyfriend, Caspar Jopling, this week put a ring on it and the singer is engaged after an eighteen-month courtship!
The pair announced the engagement in the most traditional of ways, via an announcement in The Times. The statement read, “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.” EMOSH!
And now Ellie has taken to social media to share the sweetest post about her husband-to-be.
The singer shared a black and white snap with her beau and captioned it: "I tend to keep my life very private these days and I have enjoyed the time I’ve had away from all the madness. But we’ve had so many beautiful messages of support and love the past few days, as have our families, that we wanted to say thank you so much! We appreciate it more than you could ever know. You’re the most wonderful person I’ve ever known, and I can’t wait to be your very giggly, in awe and loved up wife x"
Anyone else welling up?
The happy couple are thought to have kickstarted their romance in April last year when they hit a karaoke bar in London's Mayfair – such is the beginning of the best modern romances! If it was us, we would have been dumped after one chorus of Spice Up Your Life, but luckily Ellie is a Brit Award-winning platinum selling singer. Let’s hope they at least sung a classic duet?
The couple have kept a relatively low profile ever since, with the pair only being spotted a handful of times in public. Last October, the couple were spotted taking in a Brooklyn Nets Vs. New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden and they were last seen this July at a Formula E race.
After it was rumoured that the singer dated Prince Harry, it’s unsurprising that her husband-to-be is Eton College alumni and loves a spot of rowing. Ellie previously dated a who’s who of British hotties including Greg James, Jeremy Irvine, Dougie Poynter and Skrillex whilst rumours swirled she was romantically linked to Ed Sheeranand Niall Horan as well.
Congrats to Ellie - we are now officially taking bets for the first dance song. How Long Will I Love You and Love Me Like You Do would be cracking shouts, guys!
