After almost three years of dating, Ed Sheeran got engaged to his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.
The 26-year-old singer has shared this happy news on Instagram on 20th January, along with a sweet photo of he with Cherry, who has inspired Sheeran in his latest hit single ‘Perfect’ and captioned the photo: “Got myself a fiancée just before new year.” He wrote that they are very happy and in love, and their cats are chuffed as well. The 24-year-old is a risk advisory consultant and the duo know each other since schools as they have attended the same school in Suffolk, England.
In the summer of 2015, after the Sheeran’s pal Taylor Swift has invited Cherry over her famous Independence Day fête at her home in Rhode Island, the couple has started dating each other. In March, ‘The Shape of You’ singer has told PEOPLE that he has known Cherry since he was 11. He continued, “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.” He said that he was texting Seaborn and she said that she is in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party whereas he said that so he is. He said that he then asked Taylor “Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?
Before their engagement, Sheeran has told PEOPLE that he along with Cherry were going to spend their holidays together, though he has remained silent about any plans for popping the question. He has told about his Christmas plans by saying, “We bought What Do You Meme? — do you know that game?” He added that he is going to play that with her family as she only lives a couple of miles away from him. So, he usually has Christmas at his house and drives over to hers. The two-time Grammy winner has said that they do 12 Pubs of Christmas— a pub crawl and one have a pint at every pub.
