Who is Cherry Seaborn, wife of Ed Sheeran?

Ed Sheeran’s relationship with his wife Cherry Seaborn is truly worthy of a movie: there’s the fact that they met as children, plus their random reconnection one day in New York and a date in an epic evening of Taylor Swift. Toss in a secret wedding in 2018 and welcome two kids together, and their life has been one big rollercoaster filled with tons of love and adventure. However, even though the singer is a superstar, some fans don’t know much about his “ship” with Cherry. She’s a former college athlete, worked on Wall Street, and remains the muse behind some of Ed’s most popular songs. And that’s honestly just the tip of the iceberg!

Get ready to put on your best Sherlock Holmes, as we go into absolutely everything you need to know about Ed Sheeran’s wife, Cherry Seaborn, below.

Cherry grew up with Ed

Ed and Cherry have known each other for a very long time. The two first met at Thomas Mills High in Suffolk, England, and were friends for a while. Although their relationship was never really romantic in high school, during an interview on Expert Armchair with Dax Shepard, Ed said that if they had dating from the time “it would have been a disaster”. Moral of the story? Things always happen the way they’re supposed to. ๐Ÿฅบ

She played competitive field hockey

Cherry is something of a badass when it comes to field hockey, which she started playing in college at Durham University in the UK before continuing on during her years at Duke University. At Durham, Cherry led his team to the British University Championship in 2012 and 2013, par People. As I said: badass! Although she has quit the sport since college, she still tries to make time to play, and in 2021 she was even seen being supported by her beau in Suffolk. Gentlemen, please take notes!

She worked on Wall Street

Literally what an icon! Cherry ended up putting her bachelor’s and master’s degrees to good use when she started working on Wall Street for renowned accounting firm Deloitte. Luckily, the company was able to greenlight her move from her New York office to London in 2016 so she could be closer to Ed ๐Ÿฅบ. Literally, could they BE cuter? Answer: Maybe, since this photo of them is just as valuable:

They reconnected in New York

The duo unfortunately lost contact when Ed went on tour and Cherry went to Duke in North Carolina. But as fate would have it, in 2015 they ended up crossing paths again in New York after a mutual friend named Lauren invited the two of them over.

“One day she was in New York and she went out with Cherry because Cherry was working on Wall Street,” the singer shared on Expert Armchair. “And then she said, ‘Oh Cherry Seaborn is in town, do you want to hang out? I was like, ‘Yes.'” Oops! The “Shape of You” singer then revealed that he was nervous about seeing Cherry again, because the last time they were together, they had so-called “related. ๐Ÿ‘€ Color me intrigued! ” So in my head, I was like she remembered that because it was like a while ago. It was very innocent. Very sweet, it was a kiss,” he continued.

But! They reconnected *again* at one of Taylor Swift’s parties

After reuniting in New York in 2015, the two had one of their first ~official~ dates at none other than Taylor Swift’s Rhode Island mansion, which is pretty epic if you ask me. Also talk about setting the bar high, @Ed! He and Cherry met at one of Tay’s legendary 4th of July parties. The celebrity shared with People in 2017 that he “went on tour again, then I went to Taylor’s 4th of July party. I was texting [Cherry], and she was like, ‘I’m in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,’ and I was like, ‘Me too.’ I kinda said to Taylor, ‘Can I invite one of my old classmates?’ The rest is history.”

A year later, in 2016, the couple celebrated their first anniversary at another of Taylor’s get-togethers. In reality! The two were even spotted kissing in the background of a photo taken by Taylor’s best friend, Abigail Anderson. In a since-deleted Insta post, Abigail wrote, “When there’s literally so much love around you, your only option is to make room for all your love banners and sing love songs to them. to each other. @taylorswift we LOVE you! Congratulations to @teddysphotos for photobomb of the year”, by People. It’s cute !

Sidenote: Cherry is also good friends with Taylor in her own right. Ed explained that Tay and his wife have developed a friendship over the years, noting that the two “have hung out without me many times; I think they have conversations with girls. I don’t know what they do, talk about cats or whatever.” Alright, I’d love to be added to the group chat, TYVM. In any event! Adorbs photo of one of my favorite celebrity BFF duos, entering:

Cherry and Ed’s wedding was V Intimate

In January 2018, Ed and Cherry secretly tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with just 40 guests. The singer spilled all the details surrounding the celebration during an appearance on the Table manners with Jessie Ware podcast, and dubbed it a “little, little event”, saying, “We did it overnight on a random day in mid-January in the middle of nowhere. Nobody knew, nobody showed up. We lit candles, we got married, we came back [and] had a curry.” Although it already sounds like a cute *chef’s kiss* evening to me, Ed added the sweet detail that “the wedding party was more of a celebration of us and our friends. I didn’t want the pictures to come out and I’m surprised they don’t. Everyone was very present.”

She and Ed took a break together

After Cherry returned to the UK in 2016 to be closer to Ed, the singer decided to take a short break from music, which I personally hope he never does again for my own selfish reasons ๐Ÿ˜ญ . During an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Ed confessed, “We were basically like, ‘Let’s both quit our jobs and spend a year building a close bond and relationship. So we went on a trip and spent every day for a year together. ”

He also said separately People the following before his Apple Music documentary, Songwriter: “I finished the tour and I [realized] I had never really lived a life…I didn’t relate to people properly so I needed to have a year off and spend it with my friends and family and Cherry and become a human being.” And if you thought their break was boring, you’d definitely be wrong! The couple have traveled together to places like Fiji, Italy, and even Australia.”[Cherry] didn’t really do anything either, so it was an opportunity for the two of us to get to know each other and live life a bit.”

She shares two children with the musician

In August 2020, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Lyra Antarctica. In an Instagram photo announcing the happy news, the singer wrote, “Hello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news I wanted to share with you…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. Mom and baby are doing wonderfully and we are on cloud nine here. We hope 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”

Ed wrote a lot, Many songs about cherry

Ed released his album รท (Divide) in March 2017, which included the most beautiful ballad called “Perfect”. And although fans have previously speculated that Cherry was the inspo behind the swoon-worthy lyrics, Ed himself confessed that he wrote the song about her after attending a party together at his home. James Blunt.

“We got really hammered and took off our shoes and danced on his lawn and then jumped in the pool,” he told Radio.com. “And then the next day I was like, ‘That’s a cool story,’ so I put it in a song.”

But! This is! Not! All! Ed’s verse in Taylor’s song “End Game” was also inspired by his wife. In the song, he sings “Knew it when I was young / We connected when we were a little older” and “Something was born on the 4th of July”. *Sigh* The talent! The dedication! Romance!

…and he even named a pub after him

Yes, you read that right ! According to reports, the singer opened a pub in Notting Hill with his business partner Stuart Camp and named it Bertie Blossoms – a cheeky nickname that combines the names of Stuart’s girlfriend Liberty Shaw (aka Bertie) and references to Cherry because of the word flower, of course. Ed also has another pub on the grounds of his Suffolk estate (lol imagine being able to own one!) named after Cherry called The Lancaster Lock. No thought, just me manifesting this love for myself!
