Singing superstar Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn, his school sweetheart is soon going to be a parent. The couple is expecting their first child, and the birth of the little one is nearly here. When Ed revealed in Dec. 2019 that after spending two long years on the Divide tour, he was taking another break from the music, the pair agreed and probably find it the perfect time to start a family, according to U.K’s The Sun. Currently, the baby is due at summer’s end, which could be any time already.
Being quarantined at home for most of the season amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the two were able to keep the news of pregnancy for only those nearest to the couple. The report indicates that during 2020, they have remained close to their home in Suffolk, England and that, “Ed and Cherry are over the moon. They’re very excited, but have kept things very low key.”
“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,” reports 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.”
Meanwhile talking about how the two met each other then Ed and Cherry had known each other since they were 11. As they attended Thomas Mills High School in Suffolk they were best friends. Ed, 29, then went on to achieve worldwide success as a singer-songwriter before reuniting in 2015 with Cherry, 28.
Good friend Taylor Swift, 30, helped Ed and Cherry celebrate one year anniversary of dating at their 2016 Rhode Island estate during their epic Fourth of July holiday blowout at Taymerica.
In January 2018, via Instagram, the “Perfect” singer revealed that the pair had been secretly engaged for more than a month, posting, “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well.”
In 2018 Ed revealed that he and Cherry had wed, and in February 2019 news emerged that the pair had married in an intimate ceremony at their Suffolk estate in Dec. 2018. After releasing his album, No. 6 Collaborations Project on July 12, 2019, the “Shape Of You” the singer finally verbally confirmed his marriage. He sang in a track called “Remember The Name,” “Watch how lyrics in the songs might get twisted, My wife wears red, but looks better without lipstick.”
Ed later said in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God from The Breakfast Club that, “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. [I thought], someone’s going to 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 [that we got married].”
