Ed Sheeran, the British singer and songwriter, has just announced his engagement to his childhood friend Cherry Seaborn. In an Instagram post, the singer revealed that he got engaged to Seaborn “just before new year,” revealing that the couple are “very happy and in love.”
Sources report, Sheeran met Seaborn while they were both still “in school although they only got together in 2015.” Seaborn is a professional hockey player.
In an Instagram post, the singer wrote, “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”
Seaborn, is a risk advisory consultant and that she and Sheeran started dating in 2015. But the two have known each other much longer they were childhood friends who went to school together.
Sheeran, has credited Seaborn with helping him in his past struggle with substance abuse and in recovering after a bike accident.
And as for those “chuffed” cats, that would be Calippo and Dorito, who are social media stars in their own right.
The singer said, “I spent every day for a year with this certain person, we kind of have a strong relationship now, which is good, I’m really secure now, we live together and we have cats, and I think when you have cats that’s kind of it.”
A photo he posted on New Year’s Eve is believed to show Cherry, also 26, chilling on a sofa as Ed grins into the camera.
Just seen on the ring finger of the woman’s left hand is something sparkly – which may well be the ring Ed used to pop the question.
The happy couple have known each other since school and Ed fancied her even then, but their relationship didn’t survive the long distance when Cherry went to university in America.
However, they rekindled their romance in 2015 and Ed’s BFF Taylor Swift even threw them an anniversary party a year later.
While Cherry keeps herself out of the spotlight, Ed gushes about his love for her every so often.
He recently admitted he could see them tying the knot, telling The Kyle and Jackie O Show: “I’m pretty…yeah I feel pretty good about it.”
And he even said he was feeling broody about the prospect of starting a family with Cherry.
“Massively, yeah. I wanted to be a dad, like, last year,” he said when asked about wanting to become a dad.
