This weekend has surely welcomed some happy vibes for the Shape Of You singer Ed Sheeran. The pop sensation is happy to start a new life with his long-time girlfriend Cherry Seaborn. The couple is now engaged and the singer shared a ‘happy’ picture with his new fiancée on his Instagram.
The 26-year-old singer took to his Instagram to share a picture and wrote alongside, "Got myself a fiance just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx"
The 'Shape of You' crooner has known Cherry since childhood, but started dating after he invited her to Taylor Swift's Fourth of July party in 2015, as told to People Magazine. They’ve been seeing each other for three years now.
“I’ve known Cherry since I was 11,” Ed Sheeran told People in March.
“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,” added Sheeran.
On a related note, Sheeran had a rollercoaster 2017.
On one hand, his album '÷' ('Divide') became the most popular album on streaming services for 2017, according to Nielsen data; on the other, many of his fans did not love his appearance on the popular TV drama, 'Game of Thrones', prompting him to temporarily delete his Twitter account amid the scorn.
