The couple stayed close to Suffolk in England amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. News of Cherry’s pregnancy was finally revealed in a United Kingdom outlet, with sources saying that “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,” according to The Sun report. “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.”It’s an exciting new chapter in Ed and Cherry’s fairytale story. The Grammy-winner met his beloved wife when they were in school at roughly 11 years old.

Ed and Cherry got engaged in January 2018 and married one year later in a quiet, intimate ceremony. Cherry is said to be the inspiration for Ed’s song “Perfect.” We cannot wait to see how Ed and Cherry embrace this new adventure in their lives!
