Is Ed Sheeran married? And who is girlfriend Cherry Seaborn? We answer the important relationship questions as he reveals silver wedding ring.
Ed Sheeran's 2017 comeback album 'Divide' was a soaring success complete with songs written about his 25 year old girlfriend/fiancée Cherry Seaborn.
After going to school together in Suffolk, Ed and his girlfriend - and now possible wife as Ed hinted at a wedding ring - reunited many years later and fell for each other, but there's so much more to their perfect love story.
Here's everything you need to know about Ed and his girlfriend's relationship history:
Cherry was born on 6th May 1992 in Suffolk and attended Thomas Mills High School, the same secondary school as Ed, however she was in the year below him.
According to stories around the couple, Ed had a crush on Cherry at school but it wasn't until many years later when they reconnected and became the couple we know and love today.
Cherry was a talented hockey player at school and even represented England at Under 21 level before undertaking a degree in Molecular Biology.
She currently works as a Senior Consultant in Risk Advisory at accounting firm Deloitte.
Whilst Cherry is a slightly unusual name (we can't think of many people who are called that tbh), it is actually Cherry Seaborn's real name. People on Twitter aren't 100% convinced that's the truth, but we can promise you that it is.

Ed contacted some old friends, including Cherry, after he broke up with then girlfriend Athina Andrelos when he was out in America during 2015 and that happened to be where Cherry was studying. The pair were soon seen out on dates and built their relationship from there.
Chatting to Apple Music's Zane Lowe, Ed revealed, "This has been the first time I've ever actually had the time to fall in love properly."
He added, "I've always got into relationships that are very passionate - I'm a redhead and also Irish. But then I will get in a relationship and go on tour for 18 months and everything will f**k up".
"I’m ready, let’s go — tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around."
The couple have been super secret about their wedding plans and it's even believed the pair are already Mr and Mrs thanks to a recent interview he done.
'Perfect' - Taken from Ed's recent album 'Divide', he revealed that it was directly inspired by Cherry. According to the man himself, it was the first song he wrote for the album and has a very special story behind it. A story he is likely to reveal all on in his upcoming documentary.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Ed explained, "The line that goes, 'Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song' was about when we were in Ibiza listening to Future's 'March Madness' literally not wearing any shoes and going mental on the lawn, which was quite a nice time. I didn't see her first reaction to the song because she lived in New York at the time. So I just emailed it to her but she did really like it."
'How Would You Feel (Paean)' - Ed has yet to confirm that he was inspired to write this song for Cherry, but fans have been convinced ever since the album was released that his GF was the inspiration behind it.
With lyrics like "How would you feel / If I told you I loved you / It's just something that I want to do / I'll be taking my time / Spending my life / Falling deeper in love with you / So tell me that you love me too", it kinda makes sense.
