Framlingham singer Ed Sheeran and wife Cherry Seaborn welcome first child together




Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran has shared some exciting news this morning – that he and his wife Cherry Seaborn have welcomed their first child together.

Speculation that the Framlingham star was expecting a baby with Cherry was reported by showbiz news sites early last month, and Ed, 29, has now confirmed the recent birth of their baby daughter on social media.

Posting a photo of some tiny socks on Instagram this morning, the singer, who had announced he was taking a break from music and social media late last year, said he and Cherry, 28, were "completely in love" with the new addition to their family.

He said, with the help of an "amazing delivery team", Cherry gave birth to their "beautiful and healthy daughter" last week, who is named Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.

"We are completely in love with her," he added.

"Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here."

He signed off the message: "Lots of love and I'll see you when it's time to come back, Ed x."

The couple, who live in Suffolk, married just before Christmas 2018 at Wingfield Church near Eye.
