Goulding announced her exciting baby news in February, when she was 30 weeks pregnant. "The thought of getting pregnant didn't seem like it could be a reality," the Grammy nominee told Vogue, noting that she and her husband found out while they were celebrating their one-year anniversary in August.

"Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly, [but] — I have curves I've never had before," she added. "I'm enjoying it. My husband's enjoying it."

As for why she waited until her third trimester to announce the baby news, Goulding said she "needed time to get my head around it." She said during a March interview with The Telegraph, "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."
