Ed Sheeran has announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend Cherry Seaborn with an Instagram photo on Saturday. Sheeran announced that he was engaged to Cherry with an Instagram photo of the happy couple and the caption: “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well”.

Sheeran, 26, has been dating the 25-year-old Seaborn since July of 2016. The two met each other while attending school in Framlington, Suffolk, where they both grew up. They didn’t date when they were in school, but a friend said there was a connection. “There was always something there between them. Ed had a crush on Cherry at school, but she had a boyfriend then.” Sheeran and Seaborn have lived together for over a year and have cats. “I’m really secure now. We live together and we have cats. I think when you have cats that’s kind of it,” the singer told Radio 2. Sheeran’s latest hit singles “Shape of You” and “Perfect” are inspired and dedicated to Seaborn.
