Ed Sheeran officially announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend Cherry Seaborn!
It seems as if Ed Sheeran has found his “Perfect” match. The singer-songwriter announced his engagement to his girlfriend of 3 years via his Instagram. The couple got engaged as of late last year, just shy of 2018. Sheeran captioned the photo “got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love”.
The “Thinking Out Loud” singer mentioned that he had finally had the chance to fall in love during his break from making music in 2016. Ed and bride to be, Cherry Seaborn met in school, however, the couple only started dating in 2015 when Ed had invited Chelsea to one of Taylor Swift’s shows in July.
Along with the couples' budding friendship from when they were kids, they also spent most of 2016 traveling the world during the singer’s hiatus from the music scene. Chelsea is a well-known hockey player who scored a bronze medal at the 2012 European Championships during her stint with England’s U21’s team. The singer told Zane Lowe from Beats 1 Radio that this was the first time he’s ever properly falling in love with someone else. Sheeran also joked that he gets into relationships “very passionately” due to his Irish background and red hair.
Although no set date has been made for the newly engaged couple, Ed has already commented on his plans for starting a family. The 26-year-old said that he’s “ready” and would love to have “tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around”. We can only imagine the level of cuteness those kids would exude walking around with hair as red as Ed’s!
Along with the exciting news of Ed and Chelsea’s engagement, the star has been at the top of his career, considering his song “Shape Of You” was the biggest selling single according to Official Charts data in addition to his four Brit Award nominations for Album of The Year, British Single, British Video and British Male.
We aren’t the only ones who seem to be excited about the singer’s success; Ed jokingly took to his Instagram to announce that his cats are too just as “chuffed”. We wish Ed and fiancé Chelsea nothing but the best on their new journey with one another.
