Ed Sheeran’s fiancée Cherry Seaborn offers first glimpse of her engagement ring as she steps out in London
The childhood friends announced their engagement last weekend
Ed Sheeran’s fiancée Cherry Seaborn offered the first glimpse of her engagement ring as she stepped out in London – less than a week after the couple announced their engagement.
Whilst she appeared dressed down in a simple black jumper and black trousers, Cherry’s impressive diamond sparkler was clear to see.
Singer Ed revealed news of his engagement to his 19.3 million followers on Instagram last weekend.
Posting an adorable photo of the pair cuddled up, Ed wrote: “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”
Ed, 25, and his bride-to-be Cherry, 24, first met as pupils at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk.
Ed developed a crush on his pretty classmate but any chance of romance was cut short as academic Cherry transferred to America to attend Duke University in Durham, North Carolina where she studied for a degree in molecular biology.
While rocker Ed dropped out of school at 16 to pursue a career in the music industry – which paid off beyond his wildest dreams as he rocketed to global superstardom off the back of hugely successful award-winning albums.
But fame came at a price for the flame-haired singer.
In 2015 Ed left fans heartbroken when he announced he was stepping away from the limelight and taking a year off social media and a year away from music.
After hitting a low-point, Ed opted to use some of his extraordinary wealth to tour the world – including a stop in Cherry’s new place of residence.
Desperate to get in touch with roots after mammoth success, Ed took the step of reaching out to his old school friend.
Luckily, Cherry was delighted to hear from her school friend and it wasn’t long before the pair were spotted enjoying each others’ company in the States – and were photographed at baseball games amongst other coupley days out.
“This has been the first time I’ve ever actually had the time to fall in love properly. I’ve always got into relationships very passionately — I’m a redhead and also Irish,” Ed previously said of the early days.
