Deliciously Ella has announced she is expecting her second child. 

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday morning, the health guru, full name Ella Woodward, 28, shared a sweet snap with her husband Matthew Mills and their daughter Skye, eight months, who was sweetly holding an ultrasound snap.  

She added a caption reading: ‘Skye’s going to be a big sister. We’re feeling so lucky to hold on to something so special while the world feels so topsy turvy, and whilst of course it’s a little unnerving to be navigating pregnancy in this climate…

‘We are just so incredibly grateful. Like everyone else, we’re staying quietly at home, taking Austin and Skye our for a little daily walk on our own, which this morning was the quietest and emptiest I’ve ever seen London. Sending so much love to you all’.

In her announcement, Ella was referencing the current lockdown in the capital in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.  

Following Skye’s birth, Ella explained last year to her social media followers why the couple had chosen to plump for an alternative birth after researching hypnobirthing and water births, and described labour as ‘powerful’ and ‘intense’.

Their daughter Skye Tessa Camilla Davan Mills, was given her middle name in honour of her late mother-in-law, Labour MP Tessa Jowell.

Writing about the birth, Ella explained she first started thinking about hypnobirthing when a friend sent her a book on the practice shortly after she’d announced her pregnancy.

This led Ella and Matthew to look into the technique before meeting with their midwife.

‘It just felt so right for us,’ she went on. ‘I’d heard so many horror stories and had a lot of fear around the process, so I was really interested in exploring something a bit different if I could.’

But Ella added she thought there was no ‘right or wrong way to bring a child into this world’ as long as they came into it safely.

‘We feel so lucky to have had a healthy pregnancy and been able to chose what we wanted to do,’ she added. 

She then went into more details about her own experience, revealed she could feel the baby was coming the day prior to the birth.

‘The birth was intense, it’s certainly a physical experience, and I’ve never felt more powerful. I had a sense that she was coming on Friday and woke up to my waters breaking early on Saturday morning.

‘We pottered around at home for a few hours, went to the farmers market, made breakfast, watched Notting Hill and then as it started to pick up we put our fave calming music on, lit candles, closed the curtains and filled the birth pool. 

‘About five hours later she shot into the world like a rocket, came out the water straight on to my chest where she fed for about an hour and a half while we waited for the placenta and our midwife checked we were both ok.

‘I went totally into my own space during the birth, focusing on every sensation and visualising what was happening during it, thinking of each one as a wave.
