Ed Sheeran engaged to high school crush

CHERRY Seaborn, the girl who Ed Sheeran reportedly had a crush on in high school, is set to become his wife.

The 26-year-old Shape of You singer revealed on Instagram that he popped the question to his 24-year-old girlfriend last year but decided to keep the news private until now.

 

"Got myself a fiance just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx"

The pair first met when they both attended Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk. Sheeran is said to have had a major crush on her but the pair didn't start dating until 2015.

Sheeran has spoken in the past of his desire for marriage and children.

"I always thought to have a really good career, you always had to be incredibly unhappy, and I always thought to be really happy, you had to have a bad career, because I didn't see the balance of the two," he previously told Clash magazine." And I've realised that that's obviously bulls**t, and just what you tell yourself to justify it. I live with Cherry now. We've got cats, we have takeaways and watch movies, we have people round for dinner. I've never had that."
