Ellie Goulding is known for sharing her intense workout pics on Instagram, but the singer just recently spoke about how she has had to stop heading to the gym because of a major health problem she's dealing with. Ellie has a serious heart condition that she didn't even know about.
"I found out I have this heart thing and I need to get it checked out. I'm fine — it's actually something someone discovered last year but I never got it checked out. Which is terrible, I have been playing with my life," she said to Australia's Perth Now.
Any health concern is something that needs to taken seriously and Ellie is doing just that, making sure she isn't stressed and isn't putting any unnecessary strain on her body.
"So I have been very relaxed, I have been chilling and not being as militant about what I eat. It's nice to know you actually can't go to the gym, you're not allowed," she said.
Ellie did enjoy working out but for right now, she's taking some time off from the gym and resting up. It's important for her to take the precautions she needs and we're glad she's doing just that.
