Last year, news of Ed Sheeran getting engaged to his longtime girlfriend began to surface.

Fans began to wonder who was the woman that stole the singer’s heart and what was her story?

Her name is Cherry Seaborn

Ed Sheeran met his fianceé while attending Thomas Mills high school in Suffolk, England. It is unclear whether or not the two dated back then, but they eventually parted ways.

Sheeran decided to drop out of school and pursue his music career while Seaborn went onto earn a degree in molecular biology from Duke University in North Carolina.

In 2015, the two were rumored to be dating after they were spotted enjoying a Met’s game.  The two were also spotted partying with Calvin Harris that same year.

She was the reason behind Sheeran’s break

Back in 2016, Ed Sheeran took a break from music after receiving much success with his album X. The singer decided to take a year off just to focus on himself and his personal life.

It has been reported that during Sheeran’s break, he and Seaborn traveled the world and formed a tighter bond as a couple.

The singer told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, “The catalyst of taking a year off was also the fact that my partner quit her job in New York, which she’s now got back in London, which is really cool. But we were just basically like, ‘Let’s quit our jobs and have a year of forming a tight bond.’ So we went traveling and spent every day for a year together.”

‘Perfect’ was written about her

‘Perfect’ was the first song Ed Sheeran worked on for his ÷ album and it was written just for Cherry Seaborn.

The singer revealed to Us Weekly, “It was inspired by Cherry. 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.”

Ed Sheeran always knew Cherry Seaborn was the one. Since reconnecting in 2015, the singer has kept his relationship under wraps from the media.

Sheeran is a very private person and it comes as no surprise that not many people knew that he has been in a committed relationship for some time now.

Ed Sheeran believes that Cherry Seaborn is “the one”

When Ed Sheeran was asked if Seaborn was the one and the singer revealed, “Undoubtedly, undoubtedly. But I think if you ever enter into a long-term relationship and you have a doubt, then you shouldn’t be in the long-term relationship.”

Ed Sheeran was telling the truth because, in January 2018, he popped the question to his long-time girlfriend.

He even gushed about his engagement on Instagram and shared a sweet photo of the two right after Seaborn said ‘Yes’.

Many have speculated that the two secretly married sometime this past summer.

When asked if they were actually married, Ed Sheeran pointed at his ring finger where he wears an engagement ring Seaborn gave him.

Sheeran didn’t fully confirm the news but did state, “Well I never do anything too public anyway.”

It is safe to say that Ed Sheeran could be a married man now but if not, we are still very happy for him and Cherry Seaborn (Sheeran).
