Ellen shared this sweet post to her Instagram back in 2018

While Ellen likes to keep her personal life out of the spotlight, she has previously posted photos and videos of her husband to her Instagram page. Back in 2018, the striker shared a sweet birthday post dedicated to Callum. The caption read: "Happy Birthday to my favourite husband [winking emoji] the guy who let me take two kittens home instead of one, the guy who travels the world to support me and jumps a fence to kiss me. Think I will keep you forever."

The couple share an adorable cat named Chalky, whom Ellen has previously posted about on Instagram.

Who is Ellen White? 

Ellen, who hails from Aylesbury, is a 33-year-old striker who made her England debut in 2010. She recently announced her retirement from the sport in a statement that read: "This has been one of the hardest decisions of my life but one that I know is right for me. This decision has always been one I have wanted to make on my terms. And this is my time to say goodbye to football and watch the next generation shine.

"It has been my greatest honour and privilege to play this game. In particular playing for England has and always will be the greatest gift. My dreams came true on July 31, winning the Euros and becoming a European champion."

Ellen first discovered her passion for football while playing at school and was quickly spotted by Arsenal at just eight years old.
