Ed Sheeran is going to be a dad!
The singer and his wife Cherry Seaborn are expecting their first child together, after keeping the pregnancy secret during lockdown.
The ‘overjoyed’ couple have been spending most of their time at their Suffolk home, with Cherry said to be in the final stages of her pregnancy.
The happy news comes after the 29-year-old singer announced at then end of 2019 that he was taking a break from music after two-and-a-half years touring.
Friends of the low-key couple say they have loved spending this quality time together before they start their own little family.
“Ed and Cherry are over the moon. They’re very excited, but have kept things very low-key,” a source told The Sun.
“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.
“They’re just making the last of the preparations at home, and the baby is expected later this summer (in the UK).
“It’s a really happy time and their families are all totally delighted for them and cannot wait to meet the new arrival.”
The loved-up couple were old high school friends who rekindled their friendship years after graduating and began dating in 2015.
The star has credited his wife for helping him cope with his anxiety and the pressure of being the biggest musician in the world, particularly after suffering a low point in 2015.
“I kind of felt, ‘What was the point?’ Not in a dark, well actually I guess in a dark way, but yeah like, ‘Why am I around? Like what is the point?’" he said.
“I’ve known Cherry for a while but we like rekindled our friendship and then started dating and then she exercises a lot so I started going on runs with her.
“She eats quite healthily. So I started eating quite healthily with her. She doesn’t drink that much so I wasn’t drinking. That will change things.”
They announced their engagement in January 2018, before getting married in secret last year.
