PHILADELPHIA (CNN) – Countless newlyweds have chosen Ed Sheeran’s ballad, “Thinking Out Loud,” to play during their first dance. Now, the British singer-songwriter decides if he wants to be played at his own wedding.
Sheeran, 26, announced Saturday morning that he and his lifelong girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, are engaged.
“I became a boyfriend just before the new year,” Sheeran wrote on Instagram. “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are also delighted xx”.
Sheeran told People magazine last year that he knows Seaborn since they were children, but they did not start dating until he invited her to the July 4th party of Taylor Swift in 2015.
Sheeran’s commitment comes after a year of roller coaster. His album “Ã ·” (“Divide”) was the most popular album in streaming services for 2017, according to Nielsen data.
But many fans did not love his appearance in the popular television drama, “Game of Thrones,” which led him to temporarily remove his Twitter account amid contempt.
