Caspar Jopling is the fella holding English singer Ellie Goulding’s heart, as the two recently became engaged.
The couple’s engagement was announced on the New York Times earlier this month with the blonde posting romantic pictures of the pair on Instagram. Caspar who is five-years younger than the ‘Love Me Like You Do’ singer –has been dating her for the last 18-months and just when you thought he may not be suitable for the blonde songstress, we learned about who he is and what’s his deal.
Caspar Jopling was born in Yorkshire on January 10, 1992. According to their engagement announcement, he is the son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire.
Jopling who looks slightly like the Harry Potter character, actually comes from a posh family and is crazy smart. He attended Eton (you know, where Prince Williams and Price Harry went to school) –and also went to Harvard where he studied the History of Art and Architecture and where he was also in the rowing team.
Following his graduation he moved to New York –where he currently lives in a Soho apartment. As for his family roots, his grandfather happens to be famous politician Michael Jopling, and his brother is the very successful art dealer Jay Jopling.
According to his LinkedIn, he works at Sotheby’s in “Corporate Development & Strategy; Contemporary Art.” In 2012, he also attended the London Film Academy for a Cinematography and Film/Video Production degree.
