ED! has contacted Ellie's rep for further comment.

She hasn't said anything on social media about the engagement yet.

Anything Can Happen singer Ellie, 31, and Caspar live together and split their time between London and New York.

Ellie is known for being very private when it comes to relationships but recently opened up about her romance with Caspar.

I once had a pretty warped view of marriage because so many people around me had divorced parents.

She said she's "very happy" but understands she needs "darkness" to write new music.

Speaking to the Evening Standard last month, Ellie said: "I am very happy but I do realise you need some darkness to draw on to create the best music.

"But don’t worry — I’ve got plenty of darkness to draw on! There is enough going on in the world at the moment to get anyone down."

Ellie and Caspar first sparked romance rumours last year when they were reportedly spotted cosying up during a karaoke night in Mayfair, London.

She has previously dated Prince Harry, radio presenter Greg James, actor Jeremy Irvine and is rumoured to have dated One Direction's Niall Horan and singer Ed Sheeran.

It seems Ellie has always wanted to tie the knot but admitted in a 2015 interview that she has a "pretty warped view of marriage".

"So for a long time I did think that I'd never get married and that men were [expletive] - all that stuff."

She added: "But when someone comes along and re-establishes that trust, then it's nice to think of doing everything the traditional way: having a church wedding, with all my family in one place - I love the idea of that."
