5. Ella has one brother, Cole

You might have spotted Cole at the inauguration with Ella. Keeping his private life prettyyyy private, what we do know about Cole is that he graduated from Colorado College in May 2017, was apparently named after John Coltrane and is in a serious longterm relationship.

7. She’s 5ft 6 inches

Some reports claim Ella is 5ft 7, while most appear to say she’s 5ft 6 so until she/or her modelling agency confirms it, we’ll go with the general consensus.

8. She sells her designs and raffles her clothing

Ella loves to give back and from time to time she raffles off her clothing, asking fans to donate to a cause close to her heart and then she picks one lucky entrant to give her designs too. But, keep an eye on her ‘gram because she also sells some of her knitted creations from time to time.
