Ed Sheeran is playing coy about new rumours that he’s already a married man.
The “Happier” singer sat down with ET’s Keltie Knight at the Dream Hotel in Hollywood on Monday to talk about “Songwriter”, a new documentary focused on Sheeran’s music and his creative process.
The performer was candid about his love life, but offered no more than a vague shrug when asked about recent comments he made during an online fan Q&A that implied he may have already tied the knot.
While he wasn’t ready to confirm or deny his current marital status, he did dish on the kind of wedding he will (or possible already did) have.
Sheeran said he wasn’t going to sing at his own wedding, nor would he have any of his famous friends perform, but would like to get someone “unknown” to sing.
More than anything, he wants something small and intimate and understated. “I don’t like large groups of people at the best of times so… I never wanted a wedding that was lots of people,” Sheeran said, adding that small, elegantly simple ceremonies have “a good vibe.”
Sheeran has famously worked hard to keep his private life out of the spotlight, even in regards to his fiancee. However, Seaborn does appear in parts of the singer’s upcoming documentary and he admitted that he felt a bit “weird” about featuring that aspect of his life in “Songwriter”.
For Sheeran, the documentary didn’t feature a lot of personal stuff because “‘its just a thing about songwriting.”
‘It doesn’t say ‘Ed Sheeran: The Life and Times’ on it, it says ‘Ed Sheeran: Songwriter,’ so having Cherry in it, didn’t seem like it fit for me,” he admitted. “But it does, in the grand scheme of things.”
Sheeran and Seaborn revealed in January that they’d gotten engaged just before the start of the new year.
The singer took to Instagram to share a romantic Polaroid snapshot of the couple cuddling in a kitchen, and wrote in 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 previously sparked rumours that he and Seaborn had gotten secretly married in February when he was spotted wearing a ring of his own.
The 27-year-old singer set the record straight in an interview at the 2018 BRIT Awards, in which he confirmed he wasn’t married yet, and explained that the new piece of hardware was actually his engagement ring, which Seaborn had made herself.
“No, I’m not married,” he told Dan Wooten on the red carpet. “I never saw why men didn’t wear engagement rings. It’s the same commitment either way. Cherry made it for me herself out of silver clay. I really like it. I haven’t told anyone that, either.”
