Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn have kept their romance under wraps, but their low-key connection still has fans swooning.
Seaborn and the “Shape of You” singer met as children in Sheffield, England, but they didn’t start dating until 2015.
Sheeran told Us Weekly that a “mutual acquaintance” who was working on his tour helped him reconnect with the financial counsellor in New York City. “We hung out and reunited through when we travelled to New York, where she was residing at the time,” he gushed in 2017. “She’s fantastic.”
Seaborn was so excellent that his 2017 song “Perfect” was inspired by him. “I didn’t see her first reaction to the song because she resided in New York at the time,” the Game of Thrones star told Us in 2014. “So I simply emailed it to her, but she did really appreciate it.”
The British singer sealed the deal in 2018 with a proposal that delighted their cats. Sheeran captioned a rare PDA photo on Instagram that January, “Got myself a fiancée right before new year.” “We are overjoyed and in love, and our kitties are as well.”
After that, the two had an under-the-radar wedding, which Sheeran didn’t confirm right afterwards. In August 2018, he told Access Hollywood that he would “never really do anything too public anyway” after being seen sporting a silver band on his ring finger.
On his 2019 album, No.6 Collaborations Project, the Yesterday actor finally disclosed that he had married his longtime love. In his song “Remember the Name,” he referred to Seaborn as his “wife.” Sheeran told Charlamagne tha God that he created the song “before me and Cherry got married, and I knew we’d be married by the time the song came out.”
In August 2020, Sheeran and Seaborn welcomed a daughter named Lyra Antarctica. Following the birth of his daughter, he said on Instagram, “We are on cloud nine over here.”
Lyra’s middle name is a sweet reference to the couple’s first vacation together before they found out they were expecting. “It had always been a dream of mine and Cherry’s to visit Antarctica. So, we went there, and it’s just a great spot, and it’s extremely precious to us, and obviously, when we got home, Cherry was pregnant,” the “Thinking Out Loud” singer revealed in a 2021 interview with Hits Radio in the United Kingdom.
“I know people think it’s strange, but… it’s less about where she was manufactured and more about it being special,” he concluded. I really wanted to feel a part of it.”
