Ed Sheeran Reveals He Secretly Got Engaged To Girlfriend Cherry Seaborn Last Year
Known for his intensely emotional songs about love and commitment, Ed Sheeran has finally taken the advice of one of his songs.
The twenty-six-year-old Irish singer revealed a few days ago that he is engaged.
Apparently, he got engaged to his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn whom he has been datimg for the past two years.
The pair got engaged at the tail end of 2017 with Ed Sheeran deciding to keep it a secret, until now.
Speaking to his 18.9 million followers on Twitter, the ‘Shape of You’ 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’
Essentially sending Twitter into overdrive mode, the singer broke the news.
His fiance Cherry Seaborn is twenty-four years of age and used to formerly work on the infamous Wall Street, business district.
They had originally known each other as fellow high school students at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk.
Although they didn’t start dating until 2015, Ed Sheeran confessed that he had a crush on the pretty brunette even back then.
They lost contact when Cherry left high school to attend Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
Cherry Seaborn is a keen hockey player who competed in British University Championships and is also keen on travelling.
In fact, when the pair first started dating, Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn travelled the world together.
In a very adorable show of love and affection, Ed Sheeran took a year off of music to make this happen.
Cherry Seaborn also made a sacrifice of her own.
In December 2016, Cherry transferred to the London office so that she could move in with Ed and the pair have been blissfully happy since.
Ed Sheeran has previously spoken of the potential for their relationship to become a more serious thing.
Last year, he confessed that he’d ‘love’ to start a family with his old school pal.
Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn live a pretty low-key life, something that the singer is really proud of.
He once told Clash magazine,
‘I always thought to have a really good career, you always had to be incredibly unhappy, and I always thought to be really happy, you had to have a bad career, because I didn’t see the balance of the two.
‘And I’ve realised that that’s obviously bulls**t, and just what you tell yourself to justify it.
‘I live with Cherry now. We’ve got cats, we have takeaways and watch movies, we have people round for dinner. I’ve never had that.’
It really looks like Ed Sheeran capped of 2017 in the best possible way.
In addition to the just-revealed engagement, the singer managed to snag the Christmas Number 1 spot with his song ‘Perfect’, featuring Beyonce.
At the time, always the humble fellow Ed revealed it was an ‘actual dream come true’ and he was ‘very proud’ to reach the top spot with Perfect.
The song was inspired by his then girlfriend and now-fiancee Cherry Seaborn.
