    Skye’s going to be a big sister 🥰 ,’ the excited mum wrote alongside her lovely post. ‘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 🥰’.

    Since the announcement, she has received an outpouring of support from friends and followers to celebrate the happy news.

    Rhiannon Lambert, aka ‘Rhitrition’, wrote, ‘Yay so so exciting and can’t wait for our little ones to have play dates on a safer climate xxx’

    The food writer and husband Matthew, who married back in 2016, are already parents to eight-month-old Skye.

    The little one, whose full name is Skye Tessa Camilla Davan Mills, was named in honour of Matthew’s mother and Ella’s late mother-in-law, Labour MP Tessa Jowell.

    As well as writing about food, specifically plant based living, Ella is also vocal about motherhood.

    On her podcast, she previously spoke about her birth with Skye and how much she learned.

    Today’s podcast is all about birth. What happened in our birth with Skye? What happens in birth? Why are we so afraid of it? Do we need to be that afraid of it? Can you really have a calm, empowered experience? Does it hurt? I learnt so so much from this community about birth and I’m endlessly grateful for it, it totally changed my perception of the space and took it from something terrifying and unknown to something beautiful and empowering, although still intensely challenging from both a physical and mental perspective. Our conversation on today’s podcast is for everyone, it’s not solely for those pregnant today but for anyone who’s ever thinking about it in their future and I so so so hope it was helpful because it was conversations like this that made all the difference to us and we never would have had them without you guys. Moments like this are as personal as it gets and I couldn't feel more vulnerable sharing it, but I feel that the conversation around positive birth is so important and I want to open it up. We’re looking at your FAQ’s and the current conversation around birth, breaking down the culture of fear and dread and questioning the current dynamics through the lens of #metoo and whether birth can be a feminist issue. From the widely differing stats of different birth choices and their respective outcomes to hypnobirthing, tearing, birth plans and doulas and our birth story, we’re covering it all with the brilliant author of the positive birth book @milli.hill ❤️❤️❤️ P.S To find the podcast: If you’re on an iPhone just put podcast into the search bar and the little purple iPhone podcast app should pop up, then just search deliciously Ella.
