Profile Bio Text
Sophie Michelle Ellis-Bextor (born 10 April 1979) is a multi-platinum selling English singer-songwriter and model. Her music is a mixture of mainstream Pop, Disco, Nu-Disco, and 1980s electronic influences.
Sophie Michelle Ellis-Bextor was born in west Middlesex to Robin Bextor, an award-winning film director, and Janet Ellis, then an actress, but later better known as a presenter on the TV series Blue Peter (on which Sophie appeared with her mother at the age of six, modelling snoods). Her parents divorced when Sophie was four years old. She has three sisters and two brothers. She has often spoken about being very close to her family growing up and she often takes her brothers and sisters to work with her. Her brother Jackson Ellis-Leach is currently her drummer. Her official website hyphenates her surname, which is the joining of her parents` surnames; some other sources separate the names with a space. She went to school at St. Stephen`s School and later Godolphin and Latymer School in Hammersmith. Among her earliest public performances were with the W11 Opera children`s opera from the age of thirteen.
On 23 April 2004, she gave birth to her first child, a boy named Sonny. The father is the bass guitarist for The Feeling, Richard Jones, whom she later married on 25 June 2005 in Italy. Previously, she dated her manager Andy Boyd for six years.
On November 5, 2008, Ellis-Bextor revealed she was pregnant with her second child, due in April 2009. The child, a boy named Kit Valentine, was born nine weeks early on February 7, 2009 weighing 2lb 10oz. This was her second complicated birth; Sonny was also born prematurely by emergency cesarean section after Sophie developed pre-eclampsia.
