British pop idol became a father for the first time.

Musician and actor Ed Sheeran shared the good news with his fans: he became a father. Celebrity wife Cherry Seaborn gave birth to his daughter.

Ed spoke about the addition to the family on his Instagram account. He posted a photo of the tiny socks and announced the birth of his first child. The pop star did not keep the intrigue and hide the gender and name of the child. The only attempt to get away from publicity was that Ed asked fans to leave his family alone for a while in order to enjoy the joyful event.

“Last week, with the help of an amazing team, Cherry gave birth to a beautiful and healthy daughter, Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We’re just crazy about her. Both mom and child feel great, and we are simply in seventh heaven with happiness. I hope you can respect our privacy during this special time, ”Sheeran wrote on his personal blog.

The musician kept the position of his wife a secret until the last moment, self-isolation played into the hands of the couple. Cherry’s pregnancy became known at the end of August, when the due date approached. The happy couple told the news to family and friends, and some of their social circle shared it with the press.

Ed and Cherry are not particularly fond of putting their personal lives on public display. They even got married without much fanfare: they got engaged secretly on Christmas Day two years ago, and the wedding was played in Suffolk County in the company of 40 guests from among the closest.
