Uh Oh, Ed Sheeran Is Reportedly Going To Be A Dad Soon!

Oh my, another baby on board! UK singer and composer Ed Sheeran got his happy ending when he married his school sweetheart Cherry Seaborn. Now the couple is expecting their first child, and the little one’s birth is almost here. When Ed announced in Dec. 2019 that he was taking another break from music after spending two long years on the road with his Divide tour, the pair decided it was the perfect time to start a family, according to U.K’s The Sun. Now the baby is due at the end of summer, which could be any time now.

Since the two were holed up in home lockdown throughout much of the spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ed and Cherry were able to keep the pregnancy news among only those closest to the couple. The publication notes that they’ve stayed close to their Suffolk, England home throughout 2020 and that, “Ed and Cherry are over the moon. 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,” the Sun reports. “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.”

The “Perfect” singer announced via Instagram on Jan. 20, 2018 that the pair had been secretly engaged for over a month, writing, “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well.” Whew! Thank goodness their cats were happy about it. And now, Ed and Cherry on the imminent arrival of their first child. How time flies, congratulations to these pairs!
