I do not know for sure if anyone is disappointed by the news that Ed Sheeran is married now. I refuse to go into the fan forums where I would find the ‘MARRY ME, ED!’ stans. I won’t do it.

So let’s assume that these fans who have long been holding out hope of becoming Mrs. Sheeran do exist, and they are very upset, because today, it has finally been revealed that Ed Sheeran got married in secret.

Yep, folks, Ed has a wife. A wife who had to tell him that Yesterday was totally a good movie, “Hey dude,” is a heaps funny riff on the song ‘Hey Jude‘ (no). Telling lies about a partner’s ‘art’, my friends, is millennial devotion.

We do not at this stage have any images from Ed Sheeran and high school crush Cherry Seaborn‘s special day. Where. Are. The. Pics? Give.

Speaking to Charlamagne Tha God of iHeartRadio yesterday to promote his new record, No.6 Collaborations Project, featuring Cardi B, Stormzy and more, Sheeran dropped the news while talking about the song ‘Remember the Name‘.

Watch how the lyrics in the songs might get twisted,” he sings on the track which features Eminem and 50 Cent. “My wife wears red, but looks better without the lipstick.”

He told Charlamagne Tha God, “I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out.

There you have it, folks. The song is out. Sheeran is married.

The Sydney Morning Herald writes that the Brits had some extra goss on the wedding, saying that Seaborn and Sheeran got married before Chrissie in front of about 40 friends and family at their home in Suffolk.

Back in August last year, Sheeran first encouraged speculation about their super secret wedding. He was asked by Access about wedding plans, and he responded by shrugging and pointing to a silver band on his wedding finger.

How did he get that past everyone? “I never really do anything too public anyway,” Sheeran replied.

Well, it was an engagement ring maybe, or maybe he was being tricky, who can say?

Seaborn and Sheeran met while they were studying at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk, but did not start dating until 2015, by which point he had clearly already written a bunch of very popular unrequited love songs about her.

Ed Sheeran revealed he was engaged in January 2018, saying that they got engaged “just before new year“: “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well.

I expect the cats are extremely pleased now.
