Ed Sheeran Opens Up in New Interview, Finally Confirms He's Married

July 12, 2019

Ed Sheeran is officially a married man. He finally confirmed that he's tied the knot with his longtime love Cherry Seaborn, reported PEOPLE.

On the same day that he dropped his new album, the British singer confirmed the happy news. In an interview with iHeart Radio’s Charlamagne The God, he opened up about his marital status.

When Charlamagne Tha God asks about his more personal lyrics on "Remember the Name," Sheeran references the verse that says, “Watch how the lyrics in the songs might get twisted / My wife wears red, but looks better without the lipstick.”

He continued, “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,” said Sheeran, 28. “[I thought] Someone’s gonna hear that and be like, ‘Oh, they’re married!’ I didn’t know how that would be construed, but obviously it’s already come out.”

Sheeran also referenced the wedding when discussing the lead single from the record. His single was “I Don’t Care” featuring Justin Bieber.

“Bieber just got married. I’d just got married,” he explained. “That song is about being at an industry event with the woman you love, or the person you love, and kind of being like, ‘F— this, let’s just have fun ourselves.’

He added, “It was actually Cherry’s idea, because she was like, ‘Oh, why don’t you get Bieber? Like, he’d be perfect for this … it just fits.'”

The Sun reported in February that Sheeran and his longtime girlfriend had gotten married in December at their home in Suffolk, England. They reportedly said "I do," in front of 40 friends and family members.

“Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet — just Ed’s oldest school pals, limited family and the priest,” the paper reported. “He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them — just a tiny winter wedding … Neither of them were that fussed about making a big deal about it."

Sheeran and Seaborn met at school when he was 11. Their relationship didn’t turn romantic until the summer of 2015 when they reconnected. They shared their first date at Taylor Swift‘s Fourth of July party.

A rep for the "Shape of You" singer could not be reached for comment by PEOPLE at the time. Congratulations to the couple! May God bless their marriage.
