“That was [around] the time when Caspar and I went away briefly when we were allowed to for our one-year anniversary, and that's basically when we found out," she told the outlet. “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.”
Per the interview, Goulding’s cravings have been one of the biggest changes for her. “I actually went from being smug about how healthy my salads were and my breakfasts and eating nuts and seeds, and then all I wanted was McDonald's," she continued. “And I was kind of terrified. I suddenly wanted all of the bad things! Whatever this baby did when it took over my body was like, ‘Hell no—I do not want broccoli, spinach and collards!’ I just wanted sugar and carbs.”
"The sickness and tiredness was nothing I'd ever experienced before," she shares. "I feel like it's a taboo to talk about pregnancy as being challenging. It's not always serene and like you're not always glowing. I'm not saying that every second of this pregnancy has been miserable. It's not always going to be easy. [But] I have a newfound respect for any woman who has children.”
Congrats, you two! We have a feeling baby Jopling and baby Brooksbank are going to be BFFs just like their mothers.
