'Shape of You' Singer Ed Sheeran Is Engaged, and His Announcement Will Warm Your Heart
Sheeran shared the good news via Instagram.
Ed Sheeran has never been more in love with the shape of his lady!
The "Shape of You" singer announced he was engaged to longtime girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, via Instagram on Saturday, Jan. 20.
"Got myself a fiancé just before new year," Sheeran wrote alongside a polaroid pic of the two. "We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx"
Sheeran and Seaborn, a consultant from Sheeran's native Suffolk, U.K., have been dating since 2015. The two met in primary school, and reconnected later in life.
"I've known Cherry since I was 11," Sheeran revealed to People in March. "She worked on Wall Street in New York, and I had like six shows [around New York in 2015]. It was around then, and we reconnected. I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor’s 4th of July party. I was texting [Seaborn], and she was like, ‘I’m in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,’ and I was like, 'So am I.' I kinda said to Taylor, 'Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?' The rest is history."
Sheeran also credits Seaborn with helping him overcome substance abuse issues.
"I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to it — and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour," Sheeran said during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. "And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse. I never touched anything. I started slipping into it, and that’s why I took a year off and buggered off."
Sheeran also reportedly penned hit song "Perfect" about Seaborn.
Congrats to the happy couple!
