Ed Sheeran is “in heaven”! Married for two years to Cherry Seaborn, the British singer is preparing to become a father for the first time, revealed The Sun on Tuesday, August 11. “They are very excited, but kept things very low key,” reports a source at the tabloid, who adds that they are “delighted” to be expecting their first child. A happy news that the couple preferred to ignore during the confinement, which he spent in his home in Suffolk, and a happy event which should happen soon. And for good reason, the young woman of 28 years would be in the last months of her pregnancy, and should give birth “later this summer”.
“The lockdown was a perfect excuse not to be seen too much, but things are getting closer and the excitement has increased, so they started talking to their friends and family,” the source tells The Sun, who adds that Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn embarked on “final preparations at home.” “It’s a really happy time and their families are all delighted for them and can’t wait to meet the newcomer,” said a relative.
A secret wedding in 2018
Very discreet about their private life, Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn could obviously have passed this birth in silence, as they had done for their wedding in 2018. Not “the type to do things in public”, the singer had revealed to the during an interview that he had married his high school sweetheart who has shared his life since 2015, and this, in the greatest discretion. Students at the Thomas Mills establishment in Suffolk, the paths of the young woman and the singer quickly separated when she left to study in North Carolina. And if the artist’s busy career could have been a drag on their love, he now seems stronger than ever, despite Ed Sheeran’s addictions. And this future baby may well consolidate it further.
