A little over one year after singer Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn got married in 2018, the husband and wife are now parents. Over the last nine months, Sheeran and Seaborn managed to keep the pregnancy news a secret, much like the couple’s relationship.
Sheeran and Seaborn are two people who prefer to keep their private life away from the spotlight despite Sheeran being one of the biggest pop stars in the world. The couple has known each other since Sheeran was just 11 years old and Seaborn was only 10.
