Area of a sector of an ellips

Hey guys!

First time posting since i couldn't find it anywhere else.

I'm trying to figure out how to calculate the area of a sector of an ellips given the angles between periapsis and the points on the ellips from the focus. Does that make any sense? The semi major axis is given obviously.

thanks in advance!

A diagram would be really useful here.
