ED Sheeran has announced that he and girlfriend Cherry Seaborn are engaged. The record-breaking singer-songwriter posted the news on his Instagram account, saying: "Got myself a fiancé just before new year".

No word on when the wedding will take place: Ed's got a world stadium tour planned for this year. "We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well", the singer wrote.

The very happy couple met when they attended high school together in the United Kingdom, and they've been officially dating for three years.

It comes as the Shape of You singer is set to play a number of shows in Galway, Belfast, Cork and Dublin later this year.

The notoriously private couple were childhood sweethearts, but are believed to have rekindled their relationship in 2015.


Ed said: "You know, he's only met Cherry once and I didn't introduce her..." "She worked on Wall Street in NY, and I had like six shows [around NY in 2015]". Sheeran shared that they were both happy with the news, and the two cats they shared were also ecstatic about the news.

Swift even went so far as to wish the couple a special anniversary wish at her party the following year.

Sheeran's 2017 uber hit, "Perfect", was about Seaborn. The happy couple began dating nearly three years ago. I never touched anything.

In December 2015, the singer shocked fans when he announced his decision to take a year off from his career and social media.
