Ed Sheeran has officially confirmed that he’s a married man.
The 28-year-old sparked rumours that he secretly married his longterm love Cherry Seaborn back in February – and now he’s finally confirmed the news.
The singer released his new album No.6 Collaborations Project today, and in his song ‘Remember the Name’ featuring Eminem and 50 Cent, Ed sings, “Watch how the lyrics in this song might get twisted/My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick.”
Speaking about that particular lyric during an interview with iHeartRadio’s Charlamagne Tha God, he said: “It was actually before me and Cherry got married, and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out.”
“So I said, ‘Watch how the lyrics in this song might get twisted/My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick.’ And I was like ’cause someone’s going to hear that and be like ‘Oh they’re married,’ and I didn’t know how that would be. But, obviously, it’s already come out.”
Ed announced his engagement to Cherry back in January.
The couple started dating in mid 2015, but had previously been schoolmates at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham.
