Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you… Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x
“We hope you can respect our privacy at this time.”
News of the Sheeran’s expecting a child aren’t new as rumours were already making rounds.
In December 2019, Ed announced to be taking a break from music, again, which was just nine months ago.
Could this be his return to both music and social media? I don’t think so, especially since he is a father.
Iggy Azalea also had a private pregnancy and announced the birth of her baby recently.
Ed’s child was born in the same week as Katy Perry’s child.
