Having kept the news quiet during the ongoing global health crisis, superstar Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn are expecting a baby.

After announcing he was taking a break from music late last year, it’s now clear to see what the singer-songwriter has been getting up to, as he has been busy starting a family.

Following two-and-a-half years on the road, the A-list singer decided to settle down with his wife in their Suffolk home, and it’s from there that we have been given this very lovely news.

Speaking of the happy couple, a source close to them 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“.

Seaborn is now in the late stages of her pregnancy, and the baby is expected pretty soon. This all comes months after Sheeran announced he would be stepping away from the limelight for a while, writing to his fans on Christmas Eve 2019.

Cherry and Ed... look at Ed's face. He's thrilled Cherry (his lady ...

He said:

Hello all. Gonna go on another break again.

The Divide era and tour changed my life in so many ways, but now it’s all over it’s time to go out and see some more of the world.

I’ve been a bit non-stop since 2017 so I’m just gonna take a breather to travel, write and read.

I’ll be off all social media until it’s time to come back.

To my family and friends, see ya when I see ya, and to my fans, thank you for always being amazing. I promise to be back with some new music when the time is right, and I’ve lived a little more to actually have something to write about“.

How lovely, eh? Good luck to them.
