“Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here.”

“We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x”

This news comes one year after the artist confirmed his marriage to Seaborn on his album No.6 Collaborations Project.  On his track “Remember the Name,” Sheeran sings, “Watch how the lyrics in this song might get twisted / My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick.”

In 2018, Sheeran announced his engagement to his childhood friend and former secondary school classmate Cherry Seaborn and they married in January a year later. “Got myself a fiancée just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well x,” he said.
