Ed Sheeran Announces Engagement to Cherry Seaborn after Dating Her for Almost Three Years

Popular British singer Ed Sheeran got engaged to school time friend and girlfriend of three years Cherry Seaborn last month but kept it a secret until today, breaking the news with an Instagram post.

The 26-year-old Grammy Award winner posted a photo of himself kissing fiancée Seaborn, 25, captioning his post, “Got myself a fiancée just before the new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well.”

“The Shape of You” singer and Seaborn, who have known each other since their high school days together, have reportedly been in a romantic relationship since 2015.

Seaborn is a hockey player and was part of the England U21 team that won the bronze medal at the 2012 European Championships.

In February last year, Sheeran dropped by at the Chelmsford Hockey Club in Essex just to watch his fiancée, then his girlfriend, from the sidelines as she played for the visiting team, Wimbledon.

“I don’t believe it was a planned visit,” A Chelmsford Hockey Club spokesperson told Essex Live at the time, adding that he thought Sheeran “attended to watch his girlfriend who played for the opposition team, Wimbledon, this afternoon.”

He even spent some time posing for photos with some of the players after the match was over.

A month before he was spotted at the Essex hockey club, Sheeran told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 that his year-long hiatus from music actually gave him the chance to fall in love.

“This has been the first time I’ve ever actually had the time to fall in love properly,” he said.

“I’ve always got into relationships very passionately – I’m a redhead and also Irish,” he joked.

“But then I will get in a relationship and go on tour for 18 months and everything will [be ruined],” he said.

“And I’m like, ‘Oh, what happened?’ But it’s because I had no time to put into someone.”

During that interview, he also expressed his desire for fatherhood.

“I wanted to be a dad, like, last year. I’m ready, let’s go – tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around,” he said.

Then again, speaking on “The Kyle and Jackie O Show” in Australia Sheeran said, “Yeah, potentially. I would like some kids.”

“I always thought to have a really good career, you always had to be incredibly unhappy, and I always thought to be really happy, you had to have a bad career, because I didn’t see the balance of the two,” he admitted to Clash magazine.

“And I’ve realised that that’s obviously bulls**t, and just what you tell yourself to justify it,” he said.

“I live with Cherry now. We’ve got cats, we have takeaways and watch movies, we have people round for dinner. I’ve never had that,” he said, expressing his happiness on being together with his hockey star lady love.

The couple spent most of 2016 touring together – the year he took a break from music.

The end of 2017 brought happiness for the redhead bespectacled singer in more ways than one: His song “Perfect” – inspired by his girlfriend and featuring Beyonce – became the Christmas Number 1, which he said was “an actual dream come true” and the other reason why last year ended well for him was his engagement – but of course!

Speaking to OfficialCharts.com about “Perfect” winning the Christmas Number 1, he said,   “Thank you very much for making Perfect Christmas Number 1. This is an actual dream come true and I’m very proud and happy.”
