Congratulations to the newest parents on the block! Ed Sheeran announced today that he and his wife Cherry Seaborn welcomed their first baby, a girl, last week.
While announcing, Ed Sheeran also revealed the beautiful name they have chosen for their baby girl – Lyra Antarctica.
The Perfect singer had been on a social media detox since December last year. Sheeran also decided to take some time off work after the grueling Divide tour. And today, he broke his social media hiatus for the first time in months to deliver the happy news to his fans.
“Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you,” he began.
“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.”
He shared the picture of adorably tiny baby socks and a small blanket alongside the caption.
“Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back,” he added.
Reports of Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn expecting a baby began circulating last month
Much like their relationship, Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn managed to keep their pregnancy under wraps too. The news broke out only last month, with an insider telling The Sun that the couple were beyond happy to be starting their family.
“Lockdown was a perfect excuse not to be seen out and about too much, but things are getting closer and the excitement has been building so they have started telling friends and family. They’re just making the last of the preparations at home, and the baby is expected later this summer,” the source added.
Cherry Seaborn and Ed Sheeran’s relationship certainly seems to be quite magical. The childhood friends began dating in 2015 and got engaged three years later. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in January last year and are now the happy parents of a little angel!
