Ed Sheeran is engaged! The “Perfect” crooner announced the happy news on Instagram on Saturday, January 20.
“Got myself a fiancée just before new year,” the 26-year-old singer captioned a sweet photo of himself giving Seaborn a kiss. “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”
Sheeran and Seaborn, 24, have known one another since high school. They started dating in 2015 and ignited their romance at BFF Taylor Swift’s Fourth of July party at her Rhode Island home.
“I’ve known Cherry since I was 11,” the Grammy winner told People. “She worked on Wall Street in New York, and I had like six shows [around New York in 2015]. It was around then, and we reconnected. I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor’s 4th of July party. I was texting [Seaborn], and she was like, ‘I’m in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,’ and I was like, ‘So am I.’ I kinda said to Taylor, ‘Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?’ The rest is history.”
Cherry, as fans know, was the inspiration for Ed's wedding-perfect song “Perfect.”
“Perfect’ was the first song that I wrote for the album, It was inspired by Cherry," he told Us Weekly of Divide. "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.”
