Ed Sheeran Hints He'll Quit Music Following Engagement To Fiancée Cherry Seaborn

Ed, 26, and Cherry's relationship blossomed in 2016 when the singer took time away from the spotlight to recuperate after years of touring.

British recording artist Ed Sheeran says he is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, hockey player Cherry Seaborn.

"I am going to be like, 'I do not really care anymore as I have another life to take care of".

The 26-year-old Shape of You singer revealed on Instagram that he popped the question to his 24-year-old girlfriend last year but made a decision to keep the news private until now.

He said: "To be honest my ambition is dwindling a little bit because I have achieved far more than I thought I ever would". But it's not really up to me.

Ed, nominated for another four BRIT Awards next month, is now working on his fourth studio album. Sell 15 million albums?

"Got myself a fiancé just before new year".

"I know that is not like playing Wembley Stadium, but for me that is the next thing".

Sheeran reportedly had a crush on Seaborn even back then, despite her being in the year below.

Sheeran and Seaborn first met when they attended school together at Thomas Mills High School in the village of Framlingham in Suffolk, according to The Sun.

Despite their different career paths, the pair came together in 2015 when they bumped into each other in a bar in NY. Share your thoughts in the comments!
