Ed Sheeran announces he's a dad as wife Cherry Seaborn gives birth to baby girl

ED Sheeran has announced the birth of his first child, a baby girl called Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.

The superstar singer, 29, shared a sweet snap of a pair of socks belonging to his daughter to reveal the happy news.

Ed told fans on Instagram: "Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that 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. 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, Ed x."

The couple, who were high school friends and classmates, began dating in 2015 and announced their engagement in January 2018.

They married in secret late that year at his estate in Framlingham, watched by a handful of their closest friends and family.

Ed and 28-year-old Cherry kept mum about the pregnancy during the coronavirus lockdown.

The Shape of You singer's announcement about becoming a dad follows an eight-month break from social media.

On Christmas Eve 2019, Ed said he was "taking a breather to travel, write and read".

He posted: “Hello all. Gonna go on another break again.

“The Divide era and tour changed my life in so many ways, but now it’s all over it’s time to go out and see some more of the world.

“I’ve been a bit non-stop since 2017 so I’m just gonna take a breather to travel, write and read.

“I’ll be off all social media until it’s time to come back.

“To my family and friends, see ya when I see ya, and to my fans, thank you for always being amazing. I promise to be back with some new music when the time is right, and I’ve lived a little more to actually have something to write about.”

Meanwhile Cherry took "unlimited" time out of her high-powered city job after making plans to start a family.

Ed is worth an estimated £200million after selling more than 150million records worldwide.
