ED & CHERRY
In July — the same day he dropped his new album, No.6 Collaborations Project — the British singer confirmed in a video interview with iHeart Radio’s Charlamagne Tha God posted to his YouTube channel that he and his longtime love Seaborn had tied the knot.
When Charlamagne Tha God asks about his more personal lyrics on “Remember the Name,” featuring Eminem and 50 Cent, Sheeran references the verse that says, “Watch how the lyrics in the songs might get twisted / My wife wears red, but looks better without the lipstick.”
“It was actually before me and Cherry got married and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out,” said Sheeran. “[I thought] Someone’s gonna hear that and be like, ‘Oh, they’re married!’ I didn’t know how that would be construed, but obviously it’s already come out.”
The Sun reported in February that Sheeran and his longtime girlfriend had tied the knot in December 2018 at their home in Suffolk, England, in front of 40 friends and family members.
