Ellie’s religion is thought to be Jewish however she has been seen wearing t-shirts with large Christian crosses on them. It is unclear what her religious beliefs are but it is thought that she was raised Christian. Since she is not someone very vocal about her beliefs it is difficult to get a consistent answer.
Goulding is believed to be a Democrat because she runs with a more liberal crowd. She has performed for the Obamas at the 2011 National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, however it was not a political statement. She also was the opening act for Katy Perry who at the time was very outspoken in favor of Obama. She doesn’t touch on politics or religion in her music and keeps the public guessing what she believes.
Ellie was boring on born 30 December 1986 making her a Capricorn.
Goulding loves to run and stay in shape. She once said in an interview, “Yea, I’ve tried smack but there’s no bigger thrill than looking down at your Pedometer and realising that you’ve beaten your average.” She loves to watch Geordie Shore (British version of Jersey Shore) and enjoys following @joshweller on Twitter because he makes her laugh.
Ellie Goulding is a fitness fanatic and loves to stay in shape. She is a big fan of Barry’s Bootcamp, which is an intense, hour-long workout and she also adds a 25 minute run to get to the workout. Her trainer says Ellie is easy to train because of her enthusiasm. He states that Ellie’s flat abs are a result from the ‘six-touch plank.’
She is dating Dougie Poynter, a bassist in the band, Mc Busted. They seem to get a lot of attention with their dating since they are constantly on again and off again. This makes for some interesting news stories but Ellie says she wouldn’t have it any other way. They are both very busy and she’s realized that there is never a perfect dating situation.
