While he’s notoriously private about his relationship, Ed Sheeran fans got a heartwarming surprise when the singer-songwriter made a special announcement on social media. In early 2018, Sheeran broke the good news on Instagram. Posting a photo of himself and Cherry Seaborn wrapped in a loving embrace, Sheeran wrote, “I made a fiancé right before the New Years. We are very happy and in love.” But, of course, being low-key meant followers of the artist wouldn’t get more details on the proposal until Sheeran wanted to share.
Recently, Sheeran appeared on the Skavlan talk show and finally opened up about his engagement and how his initial plans didn’t go the way he had hoped. The artist said he initially wanted to ask the question outside at sunset, but unfortunately a heavy rainstorm made Seaborn less eager to visit their backyard. The “Shivers” singer added that he also had the date he arranged to propose engraved on the ring, making matters even more complicated. Because of this, Sheeran continued to pressure Seaborn to come out, and she ultimately agreed. From there, things got even more awkward for Sheeran after asking Seaborn to marry her. “I was like, ‘Will you marry me?’ And she said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ “He recalled. While Seaborn said yes, Sheeran states that the “long silence” was “the most human I have ever felt.”
