Ed Sheeran welcomes second child with wife Cherry Seaborn
Ed Sheeran is now a father of two!
The ‘Shape of You’ singer, 31, announced via social media that he and his wife Cherry Seaborn have welcomed another baby girl.
“Want to let you all know we’ve had another beautiful baby girl. We are both so in love with her, and over the moon to be a family of 4 x,” he wrote alongside a photo of a pair of white baby socks.
Sheeran and Seaborn, 30, already share daughter Lyra Antarctica, whom they welcomed in 2020. At the time, they announced the birth of their baby girl with a similiar photo to above, but with a different coloured blanket and pair of socks.
“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,” he wrote. “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.”
Sheeran’s announcement of his second child comes seven months after he and Lyra tested positive with COVID-19, meaning Seaborn was pregnant at the time.
“I’m self-isolating with my daughter. I have been alone with her, without my wife, since we are both positive. I am now going to spend 10 days alone with her,” Ed told The Daily Mail in October last year.
“Sometimes I am away and spend just two days a week with her, so being able to be with her for 10 straight days is great. I just spoke to Cherry and told her to relax, take long baths! Our fridge is full and we are just eating all the time.”
Sheeran and Seaborn tied the knot in January 2019 in an intimate ceremony after their engagement one year prior.
“The wedding party was more a celebration of us and our friends. I didn’t want pictures getting out and I’m surprised they didn’t,” the ‘Lego House’ songwriter explained on Jessie Ware’s Table Manners podcast.
“Everyone was very present. My friend Josh wore a triple denim suit and Stella McCartney had gone up to him and said she liked his suit, and he was quite pissed. She said, ‘I’m Stella,’ and he said, ‘What, like Stella f—ing McCartney?’ And she was like, ‘Well, yeah,'”
