Ed Sheeran is reportedly, most likely, maybe married. The “Perfect” hitmaker and Grammy Award winner behind some of the most popular wedding first dance songs seemingly hinted to Access Hollywood on Monday, August 27, that he wed his fiancée Cherry Seaborn.
The relationship status update was a topic of discussion during the interview, and Sheeran reportedly expressed that he had very little difficulty keeping his wedding a secret from the public eye–considering privacy is something he’s always prioritized.
“I never really do anything too public anyway,” Sheeran replied, when correspondent Scott Evans supposedly asked how the singer was able to “sneak that one.” An hour after the story was posted, an editor’s note was added by the outlet to reflect that Sheeran had not officially confirmed his marriage.
Indeed, Sheeran kept his engagement to Seaborn a secret for several months before finally announcing the news himself in January 2018. “Got myself a fiancé just before new year,” he told fans on social media. “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”
The couple started dating in 2015. They are parents to two cats named Dorito and Calipo.
In the interim, Sheeran fueled speculation regarding his wedding by requesting and submitting an application to his local District Council in Suffolk to have a chapel built on his property for his private use.
In public appearances this year, Sheeran also wore an engagement ring to express his commitment to Seaborn as they quietly prepped for their wedding. “I never saw why men didn’t wear engagement rings,” the “Shape of You” singer previously expressed. “It’s the same commitment either way.”
One can only imagine their first dance song, but Sheeran hinted at his favorites in a July 2017 interview. At the time, he told Oprah magazine that his choice would be “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison.
“If the bride doesn’t have brown eyes, a lot of the guests probably will,” he told Oprah magazine. “So whenever I sing it, the dance floor goes off.”
