Ed Sheeran reveals his wife Cherry Seaborn was shocked when he proposed to her

Ed Sheeran has revealed that his wife Cherry Seaborn was so shocked when he proposed to her that she asked ‘are you f***ing joking?’.

The Perfect hitmaker, 30, popped the question to his childhood sweetheart, 29, in 2017 but has now admitted there was a ‘long pause’ before she accepted his offer after he got down on one knee. 


The couple then wed in 2018 and welcomed their first child Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran last August.

The revelation comes after the news that Ed will release a Christmas song with Elton John.  

Speaking on the Swedish talk show Skavlan of the awkward proposal moment with Cherry, Ed said: ‘I was getting down on one knee and I said, ‘Will you marry me?’

‘And she was like, ‘Are you f***ing joking?’ There was this long silence and I just went, ‘Please?’

‘It is the most human I have ever felt because in my career. Sometimes you find it is like, ‘Can I do this?’ and people are like, ‘Yeah’.

‘You kind of get to a point where it becomes normal and then you are in a situation where you are literally on your knees being like, ‘Will you marry me?’

‘It is such a huge life decision someone has to make in the blink of an eye. Thankfully, she did say yes.’ 

Ed added of the proposal in Suffolk: ‘On the day it was p***ing down with rain and I’d built a f***ing pergola at the end of the garden to do it. Sunset, pergola, some wine… and it was p***ing down with rain.

‘I kept saying we should go for a walk and she was like, ‘No!’ I was like, ‘Are you sure you don’t want to go for a walk?’

‘Time was ticking. There was a date engraved on the ring and I was like, ‘I’ve got to do it today!’ ‘It gets to 9pm and I was like, ‘For f***’s sake!’

The new interview came after it was revealed that Ed and Elton John are joining forces in a bid for this year’s Official Christmas Number 1. 

Ed revealed the news during an interview with NPO Radio 2 in the Netherlands, explaining that Elton had reached out to him last year.

It came after the 74-year-old songwriter’s hit Step Into Christmas – which was released in 1973 – entered the charts for the first time during last year’s festive period. 

Ed told the foreign show: ‘Elton rang me on Christmas Day to say Merry Christmas. Elton rings me almost every single day. He said, ‘Step Into Christmas is Number 6 in the charts! I want to do another Christmas song – will you do it with me?

‘It’s just me and him. It’s great.’ 

However, after first recording the song, Ed admitted: ‘I didn’t feel like it suited me,’ before changing his mind.

He explained: ‘You don’t know if you’ll still be there tomorrow, everything can change overnight,’ he said. ‘I may not be here tomorrow. Why shouldn’t I grab this opportunity?’  

It comes after the news last week that Ed paid himself a cool £21.35 million last year, accounts for his company revealed.

The payout was more than double the £10 million he paid himself in dividend payouts from his company Ed Sheeran Limited in 2019.

Accounts seen by MailOnline reveal in the last three years the Shape of You singer has made £112.4 million pounds, which includes £31.7 million he made last year. 

After dividend payouts and other costs are taken into account, Ed still has reserves of £26.6 million in the company.

This money does not include Ed’s tour earnings but focusses on ‘writing recording and production of music’. The company performed so well it had a £4.4 million UK corporation tax bill.

He has a separate company which manages his tour earnings which generated more than £180 million in its last two years.

The one negative in the accounts was a note which said that ‘proceedings’ have been brought against the company and it was impossible to say how much money if any would have to be paid out.
