Singer Ed Sheeran is now a proud father-of-one! The “Perfect” crooner announced in the early hours of today that he and his wife Cherry Seaborn welcomed a baby girl via an Instagram post.

Sheeran shared a touching photo of what looked like a baby cot adorned with a multicolored knitted blanket and a pair of cute black socks.

The British singer is notoriously known for keeping details of his personal life secret, as seen in his marriage to Seaborn. Their nuptials were kept under the wraps until Sheeran finally confirmed it in July 2019 during an interview with Charlamagne Tha God.

However, speculations were rife that the pair had walked down the aisle since December 2018. It was the same modus operandi that Sheeran used for the birth of his daughter. Seaborn’s pregnancy was kept secret for a while until a source confirmed it to US Weekly in August.

The insider explained that only family members knew about the due date, but the couple planned to tell the world after their daughter was born. Speaking about his desire to be a dad, the source said:

“Ed will make a great dad. He loves kids, and he built his big home in Suffolk, England, with the plan to start a family.”

Sheeran and his wife, a financial advisor, have known each other since they were teenagers but didn’t start dating until 2015. He recalled that they reconnected during a visit to New York and kicked things off.

In March 2017, he confessed that his hit song, “Perfect,” was inspired by a trip he took to Ibiza with Seaborn, where they listened “March Madness” by Future barefoot on a lawn.

By January 2018, Sheeran announced that they were engaged via a post on Instagram. Throughout that year marriage speculations were fueled, but their union wasn’t confirmed until 2019
