Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn's 5-year love story: From high school sweethearts to secret pregnancy in lockdown
Seems like the 'Perfect' singer Ed Sheeran is soon going to have a perfect family. Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn are reportedly expecting their first child together. The news follows Ed's announcement that he is taking a break from music at the end of 2019, following over two years of touring.
The couple has been spending most of the year in lockdown at Ed's Suffolk home and because of that, it was easy for them to keep their pregnancy a secret. A source told The Sun, "They’re just making the last of the preparations at home, and the baby is expected later this summer. It’s a really happy time and their families are all totally delighted for them and cannot wait to meet the new arrival. Lockdown was a perfect excuse not to be seen out and about too much, but things are getting closer and the excitement has been building so they have started telling friends and family," the source added.
The low key couple has been together for five years now. Last summer Ed confirmed that he and Cherry tied the knot in a private ceremony in January 2019. He first revealed about his marriage in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God in 2019. In the interview he said, "Watch how the lyrics in the songs might get twisted / My wife wears red, but looks better without the lipstick," Ed sings in the song 'Remember the Name', featuring Eminem and 50 Cent. "It was actually before me and Cherry got married and I knew that we'd be married by the point that the song came out," the singer said. "Cause someone's gonna hear that and be like, 'Oh, they're married!' I didn't know how that would be construed, but obviously it's already come out." It was later revealed that their ceremony just had around 40 people, including close friends and family.
The couple, who were high school friends and classmates, are dating since 2015. In January 2018 in a loved up Insta post, Ed wrote, "Got myself a fiancé just before the new year. We are very happy and in love and our cats are chuffed as well."
Cherry has done a degree in molecular biology from Durham University. She was also a success on the hockey field and she even led her team to the British University Championship in 2012 and 2013. While Ed shot to fame back in 2011 with the release of single 'A-Team', his tour for his Divide album broke records and became the highest-grossing string of dates of all time. The couple also featured together in Ed's 2019 album, 'Put it all on me', where the couple grooved together in their kitchen.
