Ed Sheeran to marry his childhood friend Cherry Seaborn
‘Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well‘. That’s how Ed Sheeran announced his engagement on Instagram on Sunday (Jan. 21).
The British musician revealed he and his childhood friend Cherry Seaborn are going to be married sharing a photograph of them together with his more than 18 million followers. The couple attended school together in Suffolk, but only became romantically involved years later.
In 2017 the singer credited Seaborn, who he has reportedly been dating since 2015, with nursing him back to health after he was involved in a bicycle accident. As a matter of fact, he told the Capital Breakfast Show that she had to brush his teeth and later added “she is a good woman”.
We should have known that when in ‘Perfect’ he sang “I never knew you were the someone waiting for me ’cause we were just kids when we fell in love“.
Cherry Seaborn is a great hockey player (competing in the British University Ice Hockey Championships in 2012 and 2013), and attended a university in North Carolina. A date for the wedding has yet to be announced.
