Ed Sheeran Is Engaged, But What Do We Know About Fiancée Cherry Seaborn
Popstar, unlikely heartthrob and undisputed king of gingers Ed Sheeran is to be wed, leaving millions of adoring fans confused over whether to feel heartbroken or elated. The object of his affection? Old school flame Cherry Seaborn.
Cool name, but just who exactly is this mystery woman?
Although they kept things pretty quiet to begin with, Ed and Cherry have been in a relationship now for the past few of years (most likely since 2015), but their friendship actually extends much further back than that.
The couple first crossed paths at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk, where its reported that the Divide singer had a crush on hockey player Seaborn.
The pair finished secondary education together, but Seaborn soon jetted off to the States to attend Duke University in North Carolina, leaving Ed on British soil where he would soon become a global megastar.
"I made my decision purely based on recommendations.
"Duke has such a good name in England, and there were a lot of people who told me to go there. There were also some English girls [at Duke], so I talked to them too."
After her course, Cherry remained in the US for work. In fact, Ed recently revealed that his new love was working on Wall Street - the financial district of New York - when they rekindled their relationship and got back together.

The pair spent most of 2016 travelling the world together, as Ed enjoyed a very well-deserved year off from the music business.
On their return, Cherry managed to get a transfer to her company's London office so she could be with Ed full time.
At first, the couple's relationship was a big secret, but the cat was out of the bag when they were pictured kissing at a party thrown by Taylor Swift to celebrate their one year anniversary since getting together.
But it was over the Christmas holiday's when Ed and Cherry revealed they would soon be tying the knot.
In a post on Instagram, the singer wrote: "Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx."
And it even looks like some little ginger kids could be on the cards soon, too.
During an appearance on Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Ed said: "Yeah, potentially. I would like some kids.
"Massively, yeah. I wanted to be a dad, like, last year.
"I'm ready, let's go - tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around."
