Ed Sheeran and girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, are engaged!
The 26-year-old singer announced the happy news on his Instagram account on Saturday, telling fans that they are “very much in love.” He shared a pic with his arms wrapped around Cherry and captioned it, “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”
According to Ed’s post, the duo actually got engaged in 2017, but it looks like they’ve been keeping the news under wraps and enjoying some newly-engaged bliss. The Grammy winner and his leading lady were schoolmates in Suffolk, England, and reconnected years later. The pair have been largely inseparable since they started dating.
Ed hasn’t been shy about his love for Cherry. He revealed last fall that his song “Perfect” was inspired by her, and he told British radio host Zane Lowe of Beats 1 that things had aligned perfectly in his life and he couldn’t be more head over heels for Cherry.
“This has been the first time I’ve ever actually had the time to fall in love properly,” Sheeran shared. “I’ve always got into relationships very passionately, but then I…go on tour for 18 months and everything will [be ruined].”
Congrats to the happy couple!
