The 28-year-old British singer-songwriter said “I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out.”

The album, released Friday, includes collaborations with Justin Bieber, Stormzy, Eminem, 50 Cent and Bruno Mars. Sheeran and Seaborn, 26, met at primary school in eastern England and announced their engagement in 2018.

In his song "Remember the Name" featuring Eminem and 50 Cent, Sheeran sings, "Watch how the lyrics in this song might get twisted/My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick."

The 'Photograph' singer announced his engagement to Seaborn back in 2017 over a romantic Instagram post and in 2018 had kept fans guessing as to when the duo actually tied the knot.
