Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn: A Timeline of Their Relationship

posted in: Entertainment News | 0

A sweet little secret love story! Ed Sheeran often stays out of the spotlight, but his relationship with Cherry Seaborn — whom he’s known since he was 11 — makes fans swoon.

Though the pair met as teenagers, they didn’t begin dating until 2015. Three years later, the “Shape of You” singer sealed the deal with a proposal … and, eventually, an under-the-radar wedding.

Scroll down to take a look back at some of their sweetest moments.

March 2017

The “Perfect” crooner opened up to Us Weekly in March 2017 about how he reunited with his love years after they first met at Thomas Mills High School in Suffolk, England. “One of our best friends worked on my tour, so when we came to New York, where she was living at the time, we hung out and reconnected through our mutual friend. She’s great,” he gushed.

Sheeran also dished to Us in March 2017 about how the financial advisor inspired one of his most popular love ballads. “‘Perfect’ was the first song that I wrote for the album, It was inspired by Cherry,” he told Us at the time. “The line that goes, ‘Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song’ was about when we were in Ibiza listening to Future’s ‘March Madness’, literally not wearing any shoes and going mental on the lawn, which was quite a nice time. I didn’t see her first reaction to the song because she lived in New York at the time. So I just emailed it to her but she did really like it.”

Secret marriage speculation started swirling in February 2018, just one month after their engagement announcement, when Sheeran was spotted sporting a band on his left ring finger while walking the red carpet solo at the 2018 Brit Awards.

Sheeran further fueled marriage speculation during an August 2018 interview with Access when he hinted that it had possibly already happened. When he was asked about his wedding plans with Seaborn, the songwriter simply began to blush and pointed at the silver ring on his left hand. He later added that he would “never really do anything too public anyway” after he was asked how he managed to slide under the radar with a wedding.

December 2018

The “Perfect” singer and his hometown love reportedly tied the knot in a private ceremony in December 2018 right before the holidays. The duo quietly said “I do” at the pop star’s estate in Suffolk, U.K., in front of a very small crowd. A source told The Sun, “He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them – just a tiny winter wedding.”

July 2019

After calling Seaborn his “wife” in his song “Remember the Name,” Sheeran finally confirmed that they got married. “[I actually wrote it] before me and Cherry got married and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out,” he said during a July 2019 interview with Charlamagne Tha God.
