They managed to keep their wedding under wraps, and it looks like Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn have been equally private about their impending parenthood.

Reports suggest that the couple, who married in 2018, are expecting their first child together - and pretty soon, too.

The Sun reports that thanks to lockdown, they've managed to keep news of their impending arrival secret until now but that she is in the 'final stages' of pregnancy. A source said: "Ed and Cherry are over the moon. They’re very excited, but have kept things very low key.

"Lockdown was a perfect excuse not to be seen out and about too much, but things are getting closer and the excitement has been building so they have started telling friends and family."

They added: "They’re just making the last of the preparations at home, and the baby is expected later this summer. It’s a really happy time and their families are all totally delighted for them and cannot wait to meet the new arrival."

Sheeran took to Instagram last December to tell fans that he was taking another break from music after the intense 'Divide' era to 'travel, read and write', and promised that he'd be back with new music "when the time is right and I've lived a little more to actually have something to write about."

So while fatherhood might prove inspiring, it could mean that we'll be waiting a little longer to hear those new songs...
