Ed Sheeran on the role of father: – Best thing that has happened to me

British Ed Sheeran (30) has since the breakthrough in 2011 conquered a whole world with his pop music. He has won several awards and accolades, and has built up a solid fan base over the years.

At home, life also seems to smile for the red-haired artist.

Last autumn, the 30-year-old and his wife Cherry Seaborn (29) were able to welcome their first child into the world – their daughter Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran (9 months).


Now, in a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, Sheeran sheds light on the role of the father and the consequences it has had for his life both before and after the daughter was born.

– As soon as Cherry told me that she was pregnant, her life changed in terms of work and health, and what I put in me – whether it was food or alcohol, the “Shape of You” singer tells the host Greg James (35) .

– I started exercising more, and my routines became healthier, he continues.

The star is also said to have changed his work habits, where he worked from nine to five o’clock instead of quitting at two o’clock at night.

– It actually freed the producers. I was in Los Angeles with these producers who usually start at six in the morning and end at six in the evening. I said, “Yes, we’re starting nine,” and they replied, “What?” He says.

– Best thing that has happened to me

Also to SiriusXM, the world star talks warmly about being a parent.

– It is the best thing that has ever happened to me, he shares to the radio channel.

– These are difficult days, these are fantastic days, these are easy days. It is a roller coaster of emotions. I know it sounds cliché, but it’s amazing. I love it, he continues.

The singer also shares what the most important thing he has learned since becoming a father is:

– No parents know what they are doing.

Low profile

Sheeran and Seaborn, who were childhood friends, were married in January 2019.

Rumors that the couple was expecting a child began to circulate in August last year. One month later, the duo confirmed the birth through an Instagram post.

In the wake of the birth, the couple has kept a low profile, but in March this year, the new parents were observed out with the daughter for the first time, according to Page Six.

Earlier this year, the artist revealed that his newborn was not his “biggest fan” and only cried when he sang to her. It reported, among others, the BBC.

These days, Sheeran is up to date with her new song, “Mad Tunes”. New album is reportedly just around the corner, according to Billboard and NME.
