Ed Sheeran has two kids with wife Cherry, but how old are they and what are their names?

The childhood sweethearts got married in 2018, one year after he proposed.

The pop star opened up about the inspiration for daughter Lyra's name in July 2021, telling ITV's Lorraine they picked 'Antartica' for her middle name as the continent was on his and wife Cherry's bucket list of travel destinations and they went the year before Lyra was born.

He explained they wanted unique names for their children as his wife Cherry's name is unique itself.

"I realise some people think it's a strange and weird, but my wife is called Cherry and I think she's the only Cherry I've ever met and I think we wanted to give her a name that was unique," he said.

They reportedly opted for Lyra after the main character in book His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman.

Ed's daughter Lyra is two years old while Jupiter is one.

Lyra was born in August 2020 and Jupiter was born in May 2022.
