In recent times, Ed Sheeran has become a global phenomenon.


The British singer has been selling out stadiums around the world, while making headlines everywhere he has gone. Thus, it’s no surprise that his recent engagement is being discussed all the way from Calcutta to California.


Despite his massive profile, not many people know who his bride-to-be, Cherry Seaborn, is.


Ms. Seaborn has kept a low profile and doesn’t have the star quality of many of Sheeran’s ex-partners.


The lights are now shining on the hockey player and fans of The Shape of You artist want to know more.


They have history


Their romance has a long history, with the couple first crossing each other’s path in Thomas Mills High in Suffolk, England. They didn’t strike up a romance straight away, but their love did grow.


Seaborn went on to get a degree in molecular biology (yes, that is as complicated as it sounds), while Sheeran dropped out of school to pursue a music career.


According to Daily Mail, she now works as a risk advisory in Deloitte and spent some time living in the USA.


Two good years


As said above, the pair knew each other for years, but only became a couple in 2015. They were pictured kissing each other at a bash that was thrown by Taylor Swift in 2016.


Then, just before 2018, Ed announced the future marriage on his Instagram, with the caption: "Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx."


The signs were definitely there before that though, as on a radio interview in February 2017, Sheeran said: "I spent every day for a year with this certain person, we kind of have a strong relationship now, which is good.”


Cats are key


The pair have two cats - Dorito and Calippo. In that same interview, Ed said that the cats were a big step for him, stating: "I'm really secure now, we live together and we have cats, and I think when you have cats that's kind of it."


Ed’s Instagram suggests that the felines are “chuffed” at the good news.


We are glad to hear that it’s more the cat’s pyjamas, than dog day afternoon!


Cherry is an epic hockey player


The future Mrs. Sheeran is an excellent hockey player.


She has been selected to represent England at an underage level, and the website of her former university also details her exploits as a top-level player.


According to Duke University, she was part of the team that finished second in the Investec English Women’s Hockey League for two seasons in a row.


No date for the wedding set


There hasn’t been a date released to the public yet, but it is definitely a possibility that Britain’s two most famous redheads will be getting married in the same year as Harry gets ready for his wedding with Meghan.


Which is incredibly exciting!
