There are rumors circling the Internet right now that Ed Sheeran is already married to his fiancee, Cherry Seaborn. And he wouldn't be the first, like Offset and Cardi B, who were married spontaneously and in secret inside their bedroom at least a month before they announced their official engagement, or Michelle Williams and Phil Elverum, who tied the knot away from the public eye. So it's possible that Sheeran and Seaborn are already husband and wife, and that they're just keeping the news a (not-so) secret from the musician's fanbase. While the "Perfect" singer-songwriter is playing coy when it comes to this speculation, he did discuss the type of wedding he'd like -- assuming he's not married already. During an interview promoting his new documentary Songwriter, which is focused on his life and career, Sheeran said the following.
Ed Sheeran's wedding comments came from his recent interview with Entertainment Tonight. In addition to the comment posted above, Ed Sheeran also noted that he wanted a wedding with "a good vibe," and he doesn't want to find himself stressed out by a large crowd and overwhelming stress. The musician also wanted to let fans know that he won't be singing at his own wedding. Rather, he will be employing an "unknown" for those duties. That is, of course, if there's an upcoming wedding in store. Or even an "official" wedding -- one that's for public significance more than anything else.
We're not likely to know if Ed Sheeran is secretly married or not today. So, we'll just stick to what we do know and what Sheeran is telling us ... for now. The understated wedding plans would be in sharp contradiction to his tour, which is selling out stadiums all around the world. As he puts on a spectacle for his fans, he wants this hugely emotional moment in his life to be more private and secluded, which is more-than-understandable for a musician as popular and beloved and radio-friendly as Ed Sheeran is. In some ways, you should go big. In other ways, it's best to keep things casual.
Although Ed Sheeran does keep his private life to himself, he admits that fans can capture a glimpse of his relationship with Cherry Seaborn in Songwriter, which is something the singer admittedly feels a bit "weird" about at the moment. While other documentaries centered around famous musicians like Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Katy Perry: Part of Me explored personal aspects of the musician's lives, this doc is reportedly focused more on the process of songwriting than getting a glimpse into the life of Ed Sheeran. After all, Ed Sheeran's name isn't even on the title of the documentary, which is a clue. Whether or not that's what fans want is something they'll need to decide for themselves when (or if) they see the movie.
Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn revealed their engagement at the top of the year via Instagram. The marriage rumors began in February, but Sheeran is still playing coy with the notion. Whether or not we'll get an answer remains unclear, but we know what the "Supermarket Flowers" musician has in store if wants to get married in the near future (assuming, of course, that the wedding didn't already happen). We'll keep you posted on all the details.
