Ed Sheeran has finally confirmed the worst-kept secret in the world: he’s a married man!
The ‘Castle on the Hill’ singer-songwriter let it slip that he’d tied the knot – several months ago, apparently – during an interview with US radio host Charlamagne The God on Friday (July 12).
Sheeran casually shared his marriage to long-time sweetheart Cherry Seaborn while referencing his song ‘Remember the Name’, which includes the lyric: “My wife wears red, but looks better without the lipstick”.
“It was actually before me and Cherry got married and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out,” Sheeran explained.
“[I knew] someone’s gonna hear that and be like, ‘Oh, they’re married!’ I didn’t know how that would be construed, but obviously it’s already come out.”
Sheeran and Justin Bieber also worked numerous references to their recent marriages into their recent summer smash hit ‘I Don’t Care’.
“Bieber just got married. I’d just got married,” he pointed out. “That song is about being at an industry event with the woman you love, or the person you love, and kind of being like, ‘F**k this, let’s just have fun ourselves.’
Prior to the couple officially tying the knot a few months ago, there have been numerous rumours that kept fans guessing.
