Um. Why Was Ellie Goulding Just Questioned About A Royal Baby?!

The 29-year-old singer endured a *pretty* awkward interview yesterday...

Ellie Goulding was forced to answer some pretty awkward questions on Australian TV yesterday.

During an interview on panel show The Project, the 29-year-old was asked about, er, whether she was expecting a baby.

This is despite the fact that there’s been no suggestion that Ellie’s pregnant (we mean, have you SEEN her fitspo Instagram posts?).

Luckily, the singer took didn’t seem too fazed, calmly responding: ‘I’m definitely not having a baby. Not anytime soon.’

But that wasn’t where the conversation ended. Co-host Carrie Bickmore then continued: ‘You’re not having a baby with Prince Harry either, yeah?’

Excuse us?! Ellie seemed just as bamboozled as us, looking up at the ceiling and laughing before shaking her head.

Fanning her face, she said: ‘Please don’t let me go red. I’m bright red. Why did I have a feeling that was going to come up? You naughty people.’

TBH, we’re pretty sure Carrie was just making a joke at recent tabloid speculation about Ellie and Harry.

Back in June, it was reported that the pair had been spotted ‘flirting’ and ‘kissing’ at a post-polo party in Berkshire.

A source claimed to¬†The Sun: ‘Harry and Ellie only had eyes for each other all night – they spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets.

‘They were seen having a kiss before Harry had to go because he was playing polo the next day. Ellie left about five minutes later.’

While this is all rumour, what we do know for sure is that the duo have known each other for years.

Ellie sang at Harry’s 30th birthday party in 2014, after she’d previously performed at the 2011 Royal Wedding.

She also played the closing ceremony of the 2014 Invictus Games as a favour to him, and they were seen hugging afterwards.

Hmm. Whatever the case, we totally ship it. How insane would that wedding be?!
