Ed Sheeran and his wife of two years Cherry Seaborn are expecting their first child together.
The chart-topping singer, 29, and Cherry, 27, who first met at school, are said to be weeks away from becoming parents, after keeping her pregnancy quiet during the global COVID-19 lockdown.
The couple are ‘over the moon’ at the prospect of becoming parents and are making the ‘last preparations’ at home before welcoming their baby into the world.
A source said ‘Ed and Cherry are over the moon. They’re very excited, but have kept things very low key.
‘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. It’s a really happy time and their families are all totally delighted for them and cannot wait to meet the new arrival.’
The news comes after Ed announced at the end of last year that he was taking an extended break from his career to focus on travelling and his personal life.
The couple have been together for five years, with Ed confirming last summer that he and Cherry tied the knot in a private ceremony in January 2019.
Singer Ed first revealed Cherry was his wife in an interview with Charlamagne The God to promote his album No.6 Collaborations Project.
After Charlamagne The God asked about lyrics on the album which refer to the singer’s ‘wife’, Ed admitted that he wrote the words before the couple tied the knot, but he ‘knew that we’d be married’ by the point that the song came out.
The Grammy winner and Cherry wed in a ceremony that saw just 40 close friends and family in attendance.
