Ed Sheeran and his wife of two years Cherry Seaborn are expecting their first child together.
The English popstar, 29, and his childhood sweetheart, 28, who first met at school are reportedly expecting the child in the coming weeks after keeping pregnancy quiet during lockdown.
“Ed and Cherry are over the moon” a source told The Sun. “They’re very excited, but have kept things very low key. Lockdown was a perfect excuse not to be seen out and about too much, but things are getting closer and the excitement has been building so they have started telling friends and family.”
‘They’re just making the last of the preparations at home, and the baby is expected later this summer. It’s a really happy time and their families are all totally delighted for them and cannot wait to meet the new arrival.’
While Cherry and Ed haven’t currently commented on the rumours, the pair are very private about their personal lives. They’ve been together for five years, with Ed confirming last summer that they’d tied the knot in a private ceremony in late 2018.
A source told The Sun at the time, “Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet – just Ed’s oldest school pals, limited family and the priest.
Singer Ed first revealed Cherry was his wife in an interview with Charlamagne The God to promote his album No.6 Collaborations Project.
After Charlamagne The God asked about lyrics on the album which refer to the singer’s ‘wife’, Ed admitted that he wrote the words before the couple tied the knot, but he ‘knew that we’d be married’ by the point that the song came out.
The Grammy winner and Cherry wed in a ceremony that saw just 40 close friends and family in attendance, according to a report in The Sun.
