Earlier in August, The Sun reported that Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn are expecting their first child. The 28-year-old singer Sheeran announced in December that he was taking a break from both touring and social media, saying he would return with new music “when the time is right and I’ve lived a little more to actually have something to write about.”

He did, however, break that hiatus to pop in on a Zoom lesson for a class of UK schoolchildren in May. Page Six reported that Sheeran and Seaborn were high-school sweethearts; he revealed in his December video for the song ‘Put It All On Me’ that “a few years ago, they reconnected [and] there were fireworks.” The video put the date of their nuptials as January 2019.
