Ellie & Caspar’s Kids
Not too long after their 2019 wedding, Ellie and her spouse announced they were expecting their first child, a son named Arthur, in Feb. 2021. She revealed the baby news amid her interview with Vogue that month. “We did the one show. I was pregnant and had no idea,” she told the outlet the same day they released photos of her growing baby bump. “It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary. That was not the plan. The thought of getting pregnant didn’t seem like it could be a reality. Becoming pregnant kind of made me feel human. I want a better word than womanly, [but]—I have curves I’ve never had before. I’m enjoying it. My husband’s enjoying it.”
By May 2, 2021, they were officially a family-of-three! Caspar took to his Instagram Story to share a photo of a bouquet of flowers to inform everyone that their little man had arrived. “Mum and baby both healthy and happy,” he wrote at the time. “Extremely grateful.

Thank you x.” Most recently, on Dec. 7, 2021, he shared a rare photo of the happy family at the beach. “Miami Basel a bit different this year,” he captioned the adorable group shot.
