Congratulations are in order for Ellie Goulding, who has announced her engagement to her partner Caspar Jopling.
The ‘Love Me Like You Do’ songstress revealed the news in a traditional manner by placing an announcement in The Times newspaper. She follows in the footsteps of the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black, who also used The Times to share their engagement news.
The announcement in The Times reads: “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.”

After the news broke online, Caspar took to Instagram to share a beautiful tribute to his wife to be. Posting a picture of Ellie subtly posing with her ring, Caspar said: “I get to spend the rest of my life with this truly extraordinary and beautiful, beautiful person.
“No one has ever made me feel more full of life, knowledge, happiness, or love. Hope, passion, confidence, and more love. There is no one I have ever been more complete with and there is no one I will ever feel more complete with.
“I look forward to a lifetime of exploring the world together, crying with laughter at stupid jokes, chatting into the early hours of the morning about art, music, the world, and the future. I love you Elena. And thank you to all of you that have sent such loving messages today.”
We’re absolutely delighted for Ellie and Caspar and we wish them both a lifetime of happiness together.
