Ellie Goulding was left shocked after an interviewer put forth a very blunt question. The British singer was asked if she's pregnant with Prince Harry's baby.

Goulding, who recently appeared on the Australian show, The Project, to promote Bridget Jones's Baby's OST, Still Falling For You, had to answer a series of questions by presenter, Carrie Bickmore.

The singer was asked if she related to Anastasia Steele or Bridget Jones. Goulding had no difficulty replying to this rather simple question. She said, "I'm definitely more of a Bridget, especially in the latest film, she's very relatable to me and drinks like a fish."

However, the Out of My Mind singer turned a shade of red when Bickmore asked if she's pregnant, and more importantly, if she's pregnant with Prince Harry's child.

"Please don't make me go red. I'm bright red. Why did I have a feeling that was going to come up? Naughty people!" Goulding said.

The 29-year-old singer is rumoured to have dated Prince William's younger brother. The two were spotted together at a polo match earlier this year and sources said that they were quite flirty.  

"Harry thinks Ellie is gorgeous and has admitted comparing her to Chelsy. Like her, Ellie is relaxed easy-going, keeps herself to herself and they can be silly together. He finds her easy to be around," a source told Mirror.

However, Prince Harry and Goulding's relationship never quite got serious as the singer never wanted to be closely associated with the royal family.

According to a source, the Love Me Like You Do singer isn't after "princess-hood" and neither does she want that life.

"They have fun together, but first and foremost they are good friends and that's how they intend on keeping it. It means the world to Harry to have Ellie in his inner circle," the source added.

Prince Harry and Goulding became close after she performed at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in April 2011.
