Pregnancy is a very private thing and I personally don’t think that anyone owes anyone explanations on their pregnancy if they wait a while to tell people. It’s a personal experience, a personal moment, and something that the whole world doesn’t deserve answers to.
Not unless you want to give them.
“I needed time to get my head around it. Last year I released an album and I’d finished writing a book,” Ellie shared.
Ellie definitely had a lot going on. She’s an amazing singer and will be releasing her fitness guide Calmer, Fitter, Stronger this September. I definitely will be picking it up as I have always been inspired by Ellie.
She continued, “Then, after living in lockdown, walking around in my husband’s big coats to hide my bump and living in different places in Oxfordshire and London, we moved into a new house. Our house. It felt like we had these proper roots and it was the right moment to say something – I’d also just bought a new bath that I was very proud to show off in the photographs!”
Love that she found a place of comfort which made her feel a though she could share her big news.
“I needed that space to process what was happening,” Ellie added to the interview. “I’ve always defined myself as a touring musician. That’s who I am and what I do. Being a mother wasn’t in my mind frame, I’ve never felt any woman had to be defined by motherhood.”
She will definitely be defined by a lot of things, but we’re definitely going to be excited to see all of the things that Ellie accomplishes in life.
