Ed Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter known for his heartfelt lyrics, soulful voice, and unique blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. Born on Feb. 17, 1991, in Halifax, West Yorkshire, Sheeran began playing the guitar at a young age and quickly developed a passion for music. He grew up in a musical family, and his father was an art lecturer and a composer.
Sheeran's early musical influences included Irish folk music and hip-hop, which he listened to while performing in local venues around his hometown. After moving to London to pursue a career in music, he began playing in small clubs and recording demos, which led to him being discovered by Jamie Foxx. In 2011, Sheeran released his debut album, "+," which showcased his signature style of combining acoustic guitar and electronic beats with his poignant and introspective lyrics. The album's lead single, "The A Team," became a massive hit and earned him international recognition.
Over the years, Sheeran has continued to release chart-topping albums and singles, including "x," "÷" and "No. 6 Collaborations Project," which featured collaborations with popular artists such as Justin Bieber, Cardi B and Bruno Mars. In addition to his solo career, Sheeran has written songs for other artists, including One Direction and Taylor Swift.
Sheeran's success as a musician has earned him numerous awards and accolades. In 2017, he was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to music and charity.
Sheeran quietly married his childhood sweetheart in a secret ceremony in 2018. He is also now a dad of two daughters. However, Sheeran’s personal life hasn’t always been easy, as in March 2023, he revealed he suffered great loss and that his wife had gone through health hardships.

Back in 2019, Sheeran confirmed he had married his long-time girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn. The British press reported they had wed in front of close family and friends at the singer’s home just before Christmas 2018 and that Sheeran wanted a break to spend time with his newly wedded wife.
The pair, who met when they were children, reconnected later in life and began dating. In January 2018, the musician made their engagement announcement on Instagram with a sweet Polaroid photo captioned: “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”
This was not the first time the singer had stepped back from performing. In 2015, when he and Seaborn had reconnected, Sheeran announced he was taking a break and later explained: “The catalyst of taking a year off was also the fact that my partner quit her job in New York… we were just basically like, let’s quit our jobs and have a year of forming a tight bond. So we went traveling and spent every day for a year together.”
He added: “This has been the first time I've ever actually had the time to fall in love properly.”
The pair welcomed their first child, daughter Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran, in August 2020. “We are completely in love with her. … we are on cloud nine over here,” Sheeran wrote on Instagram. In May 2022, he announced the birth of his second child in much the same way, posting a photo of socks with the caption: “Want to let you all know we’ve had another beautiful baby girl. … over the moon to be a family of 4 x.” The child was later reported to be named Jupiter.
In March 2023, the trailer for Sheeran’s Disney+ docuseries “Ed Sheeran: The Sum of It All” was released. In the trailer, Sheeran explained how he envisioned the documentary going in a different direction, but “life can be unpredictable,” and he needed to share more.
"Everything in my life sort of got so much better when Cherry got into it," Sheeran shared. "I've got married and I'm a dad who has two daughters."
Unfortunately, Seaborn endured health struggles. According to Page Six, Seaborn was diagnosed with a tumor during her second pregnancy. She had “no route to treatment until after the birth.”
Sheeran also revealed that his best friend and the man who discovered him, Jamal Edwards, had died. He explained:
"Cherry's health, it was really bad and then suddenly my best friend Jamal dies. You guys said we should make a documentary and I said 'Yeah, it will be me in the studio, and we'll play the gig.' That's not what the documentary is. Loss, it just took over my life. Every time something bad happens, I tend to write a song about it."
Clips showed Sheeran breaking down and crying in the car as he explained the hardships he and his wife went through. Sheeran continued:
"I’ve always been very guarded in my personal and private life; the only documentary I’ve ever made has been one that focused on my songwriting. Disney approached me to make a four-part documentary, and it felt like the right time to open the door and let people in. I hope people enjoy it."
The documentary comes out in May 2023, the same week as Sheeran’s anticipated album, “-.”
