Woman Who Had Baby With Ed Sheeran Lookalike Names Baby After Singer's Wife
| Last updated
Whatever you think of Ed Sheeran's music, the fact of the matter is it's bloody popular.
The singer-songwriter has pumped out hit after hit, amassing a huge global fanbase in the process.
But one diehard fan has taken her devotion to a whole new level, having just given birth to a baby girl with an Ed Sheeran lookalike.
What's more, they've even named the newborn Cherry Rose, after the singer's wife, Cherry - and added in the middle name Sheeran for good measure.
Cherry Rose – who arrived three weeks early – was born at Wythenshawe Hospital, in Greater Manchester, last Thursday (9 June), weighing 5lb 6oz.
"I chose the name Cherry as it's so sweet," 37-year-old Amanda told The Sun.
"We also wanted to keep the Ed Sheeran theme in the family."
Ty – who works full-time as an Ed Sheeran lookalike – said: "I feel phenomenal. Cherry is beautiful."
So, dare to hazard a guess at where Amanda Baron and Ty Jones met? That's right, it was at an Ed Sheeran gig.
And just hours after welcoming their baby into the world, the couple celebrated the only way they know how - by seeing Ed Sheeran in concert at the Etihad.
Reflecting on when she met 27-year-old Ty last year, mum-of-four Amanda said: "I thought my friends were having me on when they said he was a lookalike.
"I always wanted to go out with a ginge, and now I've got the best one – apart from the real Ed, obviously."
As for Ty, he thinks Amanda is just perfect.
He said: "I have to weigh up if [women] are just interested in me because I'm the next best thing to Ed. But with Amanda, it's been amazing. She's the best."
Cherry Rose arrived just a month after the real Ed Sheeran announced the birth of his second daughter.
On Instagram, the 31-year-old wrote: "Want to let you all know we've had another beautiful baby girl.
"We are both so in love with her, and over the moon to be a family of 4 x"
