Singer Ed Sheeran is engaged!
R&B singer, Ed Sheeran, 26, announced on Saturday morning that he and his longtime girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, are engaged.
“Got myself a fiancé just before new year,” Sheeran wrote on Instagram. “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”
Sheeran and Seaborn, 24 — a risk advisory consultant — have known one another since high school and recently moved in together. They began dating in the summer of 2015 after Sheeran’s BFF Taylor Swift invited Seaborn over for her famous Independence Day fête at her Rhode Island home.
I’ve known Cherry since I was 11,
Ed told PEOPLE in March.
“She works 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.”
Sheeran’s engagement comes after a roller-coaster year. His album “÷” (“Divide”) was the most popular album on streaming services for 2017, according to Nielsen data.
Congratulations are in order for Ed Sheeran and his “Perfect” love Cherry Seaborn, who have gotten engaged after almost three years of dating.
