Ellie Goulding recently announced that she and her husband Caspar Jopling have split, and it looks like she's moving on. Though just FYI: Ellie and Caspar have been done for a while....they just kept it to themselves!

ANYWAY, Ellie was just spotted kissing Armando Perez at the beach amid her split, so obviously we need a quick deep dive on this man. Starting with the fact that...

Ellie Is "Blissfully Happy"

A source also tells The Sun that “Ellie and Armando seemed very into each other. They share a lot of interests including their love of nature and the ocean. Armando runs a surf school on the beach with his brother and he has been giving Ellie lessons. When Armando wasn’t teaching Ellie, he couldn’t keep his hands off her and pulled her in for a hug and a kiss. Ellie looked blissfully happy and was laughing and joking with him as they messed around in the sea.”

Armando Previously Taught Shakira

According to Just Jared, he gave her lessons last summer.

Ellie and Caspar Confirmed Their Split on February 23

Just days before Ellie and Armando went public, the former couple revealed they'd parted ways via Ellie's Instagram Stories.

"In light of recent stories, I feel I have been left with no choice but to let you all know that Caspar and I privately separated some time ago," Ellie wrote. "We remain the closest of friends and have been successfully co-parenting with our sons best interests at heart. We are committed to protecting our family privacy and thank people in advance for respecting our wishes - we won't be commenting further. Thank you."

Meanwhile, Caspar said "Hi people - hope you're having a good day. I feel (sadly) that I need to say something on mine and Ellie's current relationship, that I hope more than anything will make any final tabloid speculation disappear. Ellie and I made the decision to separate some time ago. Our immediate family and close friends have known for some time - otherwise we chose to do what we could to keep this private. Ellie and I remain the closest of friends and, most importantly, 'co-parents' to the best kiddo in the world, Arthur. This is the last I want to say on this - and please ask that you respect mine and Ellie's privacy. Thanks a lot Caspar."

That's all for rn, but we'll keep you updated on Ellie and Armando's 'ship! In the meantime...
