Is Ed Sheeran already a married man?
Rumours started swirling on Monday that Sheeran had secretly tied the knot with fiancee Cherry Seaborn when the “Thinking Out Loud” singer was seen sporting a simple silver band on his ring finger while performing in London.
The 27-year-old GRAMMY winner performed at Indigo at the O2 Arena as part of the 2018 War Child BRITs Week, and his shiny hardware was on full display as he rocked out on the guitar during the benefit.
The classy ring didn’t go unnoticed by fans in the audience either. Some took to Instagram to share snapshots of Sheeran’s set and speculate on his relationship status.
But Sheeran has finally cleared the air on the speculation, “It’s an engagement ring” he told Sky News at Wednesday’s Brit Awards.
“I feel like its good to both do things,” he added.
Sheeran kept coy about the wedding planning as well, “It will be a situation like this,” he said as he pointed at his ring. “Where no one knows.”
The musician surprised fans with the announcement of his engagement on Jan. 20, when he took to Instagram to share the news.
“Got myself a fiance just before new year,” Sheeran captioned a cute Polaroid photo of the couple. “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”
The singer — who has known Seaborn from his hometown of Framlingham, England, since he was 11 years old — began dating his longtime friend in 2015. Days after posting the news of their engagement, Seaborn was spotted wearing her new sparkler while out and about in London.
Sheeran spoke with ET about his romance with his childhood friend back in March, where he reflected on their relationship.
“I think it’s cool,” he said. “You don’t get away with a lot, because she can call you out on anything.”
