The Burn chart-topper welcomed her first child with  last year, with the private star only announcing that she was expecting when she was.

Taking to social media on Tuesday, the singer posted a picture of herself doting on her toddler as she walked along the pavement, holding him to her waist in a hip seat carrier.

Ellie was relaxed but chic in cream linen trousers and a mustard jacket with statement wide-cuffed sleeves.

She wore her long blonde hair loose and went fresh faced as she reached over to tenderly brush her son’s hair out of his eyes.

Arthur, who was dressed in a long-sleeved top and soft blue trousers, had his face carefully obscured by a purple heart emoji.

Ellie had for the first time publicly last November, despite admitting she was ‘particularly nervous’ to do so.

Taking a selfie of the two of them out for a walk, Arthur had his face turned away from the camera while wearing a warm, navy hat and an absolutely adorable red coat covered in swans, while mum Ellie rocked a North Face jacket and rag & bone beanie.

Shortly after posting the photo, the star – who opened up at the start of the year – took to her Instagram Stories to reveal she was ‘particularly nervous’ about sharing a picture of her son, ‘even just the back of his head’.

She said: ‘I have chosen not to expose him to the world on social media. I feel quite strongly about this (I believe it is his decision when he is older!),’ and revealed she has even ‘had people try to take photos of him now and then … and I have politely asked if they could not’.

She continued: ‘I am extremely protective over him as any mother would be.’
