Who is Ed Sheeran’s wife Cherry Seaborn and how long have they been together? – The Sun

CHERRY Seaborn and Ed Sheeran have announced they have become parents.

Cherry is Ed's longtime childhood friend, and she later went on to become his wife.

Who is Cherry Seaborn?

British born Cherry, 28, met Ed Sheeran, 29, at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk, where the singer is believed to have had a crush on his classmate.

The pair finished their secondary education there and Cherry then attended Duke University, which is located in Durham, North Carolina, in America.

In 2016, after months of dealing with a long-distance relationship with Ed, The Sun exclusively revealed that she had moved back to the UK from the US to be with him.

On September 1, 2020, it was revealed that Cherry and Ed had welcomed their first child together – a daughter called Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.

When did Cherry Seaborn and Ed Sheeran get married?

Cherry and Ed knew each other from school but it wasn't until 2015 that he asked her out and they began dating.

The singer had previously revealed on Instagram that he proposed to Cherry over the 2017 Christmas holidays.

In February 2018, The Sun exclusively revealed that the pair had got married in secret with NO celebrities as guests.

Ed hosted the ceremony at his country estate in Suffolk just before Christmas 2018, despite having his plans to build a wedding chapel on site rejected.

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

What does Cherry Seaborn do?

During her time in the States, Cherry impressed her peers with her incredible hockey ability.

She even led her hockey team to back-to-back British University championships in 2012 and 2013.

On Duke’s official website, Cherry said: "Ever since I was in high school I've always wanted to study in the United States.

"I looked into different schools that were good academically and also at hockey, and Duke was one that really jumped out at me.

"I made my decision purely based on recommendations.

"Duke has such a good name in England, and there were a lot of people who told me to go there.

"There were also some English girls [at Duke], so I talked to them too."

Before Cherry returned back to British soil, it was rumoured that she worked as an Advisory Consultant at Deloitte & Touche LLP in New York.

But in July 2020 it was revealed she had left her high-powered London job as a risk manager with Deloitte to grow fruit and veg.

Cherry’s LinkedIn page said she is “working to create a self-sufficient ­living environment, aiming to produce sustainable energy, as well as all fruit and vegetables”.

She is also said to have enrolled at Cambridge University to study for a post- graduate degree in sustainable business, so she's going to have a lot on her hands.
