Fans of the popular singer-songwriter were both delighted and devastated when Ed Sheeran announced that he would be marrying his love and long-time friend, Cherry Seaborn.
Sheeran shared the happy news on Instagram, revealing that he had popped the big question at the end of 2017.
He and his beau have had a whirlwind romance, and Seaborn has made her way into several of Sheeran's major hits.
The two of them knew each other in high school, and developed a close friendship. However, when Seaborn moved away for school they spent many years apart, not reconnecting until Sheeran gained international fame for his breakout album, "x" (multiply).
However, it would appear that his decision to marry the love of his life was no spontaneous move on the singer's part. In fact, he may have hinted at his engagement with help from his pop star friend Taylor Swift months ago.
