AceShowbiz - Ed Sheeran has wed his longtime girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, according to a U.S. news report.
The Perfect singer confirmed the news on Monday, August 27 during an interview with U.S. news show Access Hollywood.
Sheeran was chatting with reporter Scott Evans when he let slip the big reveal, explaining that it wasn't hard to keep the nuptials a secret, because he likes to keep his private life private.
He did not offer up any details about when and where the wedding took place.
Ed and his new bride became engaged on New Year's Eve, December 31, 2017 and the singer shared the news with his fans in a rare Instagram announcement under a Polaroid photograph of himself embracing and kissing Cherry.
"Got myself a fiance (sic) just before new year," he wrote. "We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well."
Sheeran was forced to deny reports he and Cherry had tied the knot back in February, after he was spotted wearing what looked like a silver wedding band on his ring finger.
During an interview on the red carpet at the Brit Awards in London, Ed was asked about the marriage rumours and replied, "It's an engagement ring."
He was also asked by Sky News when he and Cherry would be walking down the aisle but the star refused to be drawn on a potential wedding date, replying, "It will be a situation like this where no one knows."
Ed and Cherry's relationship blossomed in 2016 when the singer took time away from the spotlight to relax after years of constant touring.
