Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn reportedly tied the knot in December at their home in Suffolk, England, in front of 40 friends and family members
Ed Sheeran is officially off the market!
On Friday — the same day he dropped his new album, No.6 Collaborations Project — the British singer confirmed in a video interview with Charlamagne The God posted to his YouTube channel that he and his longtime love Cherry 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, 28. “[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 at their home in Suffolk, England, in front of 40 friends and family members.
“Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet — just Ed’s oldest school pals, limited family and the priest,” the paper reported. “He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them — just a tiny winter wedding … Neither of them were that fussed about making a big deal about it.”
The Sun also reported the pair was planning a larger celebration their wider group of friends in the summer.
A rep for the “Shape of You” singer could not be reached for comment by PEOPLE at the time.
