Ed Sheeran Says Romance With Wife in High School Would Have Been Doomed

The ‘Bad Habits’ star insists his relationship with Cherry Seaborn came at the right time because it would have been a disaster if they dated in high school.

AceShowbizEd Sheeran is convinced his relationship with now-wife Cherry Seaborn wouldn’t have lasted if they’d dated in high school.

The pair grew up as “really close friends,” Ed told Dax Shepard on his “Armchair Expert” podcast on Monday (01Nov21), but the “Shivers” star thinks “it would have been a disaster” if their romance had begun when they were teenagers.

Ed and Cherry drifted apart when he went on tour and she got a university scholarship, but their paths crossed once again in New York in 2015 thanks to their mutual friend Lauren.

“One day, she (Lauren) was in New York and she went to go out with Cherry because Cherry worked on Wall Street,” he said. “And then she was like, ‘Oh Cherry Seaborn is in town, do you want to hang out?’ I was like, ‘Yes.’ “

Ed admitted he felt nervous seeing Cherry again after so long because the last time they saw one another they had “hooked up.”

“In my head, the last time I’d seen Cherry we hooked up. So in my head, I was like what if she remembers that because it was like a while ago. It was very innocent. Very gentle, it was a kiss,” he smiled.

Now the pair are parents to daughter Lyra and are happier than ever, with Ed feeling comfortable at ease when he’s with his family in their hometown in which they grew up.

“I feel like I am the me that I was when I grew up when I’m there,” he continued. “And then when I come to London, it’s like you have this switch. I described it like putting on Spider-Man‘s outfit, you become this person that no one recognises when you go back. I know everyone so I’m pretty invisible there.”
