When Ellie Goulding was born, the second of Tracey’s four children, Tracey was working in a supermarket to make ends meet and the family were living in a council house in Lyonshall, Hereford.
Tracey was an artist and music fan who used to hang out with punk group Siouxsie and the Banshees, and worked for various record companies. She used to work at a supermarket. Ellie has described her as being cool. She said:
|“||"My mum is really supportive now. She is fascinated by what is happening with me and my career. She is proud."||”|
Tracey thinks that showbusiness has made Ellie more confident and it has made her believe in herself more as a person.
She lives in Hereford/Birmingham at the moment according to her Twitter profile. Tracey also has a Twitter account @Traceygoulding.
