Ed Sheeran Announces Engagement to Long-Time Girlfriend Cherry Seaborn


Ed Sheeran is “chuffed” and for good reason.

The “Perfect” singer took to Instagram today to announce that he is engaged to the song’s inspiration. Sheeran and his long-time girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, got engaged at the end of last year according to the cute polaroid picture’s caption. “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx,” he wrote.

The adorable couple have known each other since they were 11 but only started dating in 2015. He shared with PEOPLE last year, “She worked 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.”
