ABC/Image Group LAFollowing news of her engagement this week, Ellie Goulding posted a sweet photo on Instagram showing off her ring and thanking fans for the well wishes.

In the black-and-white pic, Ellie is seen kissing her fiancé Caspar Jopling on the cheek as she cradles his face with her hand displaying the engagement sparkler.

“I tend to keep my life very private these days and I have enjoyed the time I’ve had away from all the madness,” she writes. “But we’ve had so many beautiful messages of support and love the past few days, as have our families, that we wanted to say thank you so much! We appreciate it more than you could ever know.”

She then adds a message for Jopling, writing, “You’re the most wonderful person I’ve ever known, and I can’t wait to be your very giggly, in awe and loved up wife.”

The two have reportedly been dating for 18 months. Jopling is a New York-based art dealer who works at Sotheby's.
