Discretion has always prevailed in the relationship between Ed Sheeran and his wife, Cherry Seaborn. So it is not surprising that they have kept a secret that they are going to be parents almost until the end of the pregnancy. The confinement due to the coronavirus pandemic, which is happening in Suffolk, in the east of the United Kingdom, has helped them hide this new stage in the life of the singer and his partner, “but the moment is approaching and the excitement has been growing , so they have begun to tell family and friends , "revealed a source told British newspaper the Sun .
In fact, the Daily Mail newspaper has published a photograph of Seaborn taken last March in which an incipient pregnancy was already appreciated. "They are very excited," says the same person, who assures that the marriage is with the "last preparations at home" because the baby will be born at the end of this summer. "It is a very happy time and their families are delighted with them and cannot wait to meet the child," she adds.
His manager, Stuart Camp, already predicted after the announcement of the artist's temporary retirement that he could form "a young family relatively soon": "He will not stay still for long, it is not the type of vacation." Sheeran explained last December the reasons why he was saying goodbye - for the second time, since he already did the same in 2016 - during a time of the scenarios: “one of the important things in the industry is knowing not only when to give a I breathe oneself, but also give the audience a break ”. “I've been non-stop since 2017 so I'm going to take a break to travel, write and read. I will be disconnected from social networks until it is time to return. For my family and friends: see you when I play. To my fans: thank you for always being so amazing, I promise to come back with new music when the time is right and I have lived a little longer so I have real things to write about, "he wrote then.

A time away from the media focus in which he has taken the opportunity to develop another artistic facet that he is passionate about: painting. He considers his style to be similar to that of Jackson Pollock, but he does not want to put any of the paintings up for sale. “I don't sell my art. I love doing it. Nobody else needs to judge me, ”he explained during an interview on The Sun in which he revealed his addictions to drugs, alcohol and food, as well as his anxiety attacks. A dark stage in his life that his wife helped him out of. “She exercises a lot, so I started running with her. She eats quite healthy, so I started eating healthier. She doesn't drink too much, so I didn't drink either. That changed everything, "explained the interpreter.
Sheeran and Seaborn were married in January 2018, in an intimate ceremony at the discretion of the couple. “There were only 40 people in attendance, including no famous people, no record company executives, no royals or pop stars.

In the images, the couple share dances, laughs and kisses in their London apartment in a staging of their day to day.
