Entertainment Music Ed Sheeran Celebrates Wife and 'Baby Mama' Cherry Seaborn's Birthday with Rare Personal Photo Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn married in 2019, and welcomed daughter Lyra Antarctica in August 2020 By Rachel DeSantis Published on May 6, 2022 02:50 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Ed Sheeran offered a rare glimpse into his personal life on Friday for a very special cause — his wife Cherry Seaborn's birthday! The "2step" singer, 31, wished Seaborn a happy 30th birthday in a sweet photo that showed the happy couple relaxing together in what appears to be a hammock. "HBD to ma baby mama. 30 looks good on you 🍒," Sheeran captioned the Instagram post. In the photo, Seaborn holds a drink as she and her Grammy-winning husband lay in an embrace while facing opposite directions. The pair, who married in a secret chapel wedding in January 2019, welcomed daughter Lyra Antarctica in August 2020. Sheeran and Seaborn, a former college field hockey star who works for Deloitte, first met as kids, and struck up a romance years later after reconnecting in New York City in 2015. She has since inspired many of Sheeran's most romantic love songs, including "Perfect" and "The Joker and the Queen."

"I kept saying to her, 'We should go for a walk.' She's like, 'No.' 'You sure you don't want to go for a walk?' he recalled. "And time was ticking and [I had engraved] the date on the ring and I'm like, 'I've got to do it today!' It gets to like, 9 p.m. and I'm like, 'For f—'s sake.'" Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn.

"I was like, 'Will you marry me?' And she was like, 'Are you f—ing joking?' I remember it was just a long silence and I just went, 'Please?'" he recalled. "That was the most human that I've ever felt, because it was like, in my career, sometimes you find I'll be like, 'Can I do this?' And people will just be like, 'Yeah.' You kind of get to a certain point where it just becomes normal." Who Is Ed Sheeran's Wife?

Thankfully she did say yes and that was good."
