Ellie Goulding's boyfriends over the years: The Grammy-nominated singer has been married since 2019 and shares a son with her husband, Caspar Jopling.
Ellie Goulding is a relatively new yet established star in the pop world. The world was introduced to Goulding's sweet, piercing voice when the singer covered Elton John's Your Song in 2010, the same year she released her hitmaker Lights. Goulding was an up-and-coming star in her nation before the breakthrough, with her singles ranking at UK Charts and winning the BBC Sound of 2010 poll. Goulding's career has very much branched outside of her native. Goulding is now a Grammy-nominated singer with a slew of hits under her belt.
Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding was born on December 30, 1986, in Hereford, England. Ellie initially prepared herself to work on the screen, but her diffidence got the best of her. "I was painfully shy," Goulding adds, "singing seemed to be a way for me to have confidence while not being confident." It's not every day the blonde Brit's love life makes it to the headline, but Ellie recently invited (unintentionally) scrutiny of her personal life after she addressed cheating rumors.

Ellie's split from Sonny Moore in 2012 was followed by another romance in the singer's life. The singer swiftly entered into a relationship with actor Jeremy Irvine after her fresh break. The duo called it quit within a year in 2013. The Grammy-nominated singer isn't unfamiliar to the industry's rumor mills generating romance rumors once in a while, and Ellie has been a part of the speculation a couple of times; the Lights crooner was romantically linked with Calvin Harris in 2013.
Whether it was their cute chemistry in their MV, I Need Your Love or the pair's friendship that sparked the rumor, but it was never confirmed. Goulding famously and reticently dated Ed Sheeran in 2013. The singer pair were first linked after Goulding and Sheeran were pictured holding hands at the 2013 VMAs. Goulding, at the time, denied having any romantic involvement with Sheeran, but the Shape of You hitmaker's statement suggested otherwise.

"I love that holding hands with my friends means we're an item. In that case, I am in many relationships. Lover, not a hater," Goulding said while denying the rumor. Sheeran later cleared that the two were an item for a brief time. "I mean, normal people don't hold hands if they're just friends. It was going on. And now it's not," Sheeran said. Goulding faced an infidelity accusation when Ed released his song, Don't, which talks about an on-and-off relationship ending with infidelity, in 2014.
