What a difference a year can make! Singer Ed Sheeran took some time off to travel the world and spend time with his love, Cherry Seaborn. He’s back in the spotlight and opening up about his desire to become a dad and also what his year off was like.
On the desire to have kids – and SOON, “Massively. I wanted to be a dad, like, last year. I’m ready, let’s go–tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around.”
On his year off allowing him to fall in love “properly”, he shares “This has been the first time I’ve actually had the time to fall in love properly. So the catalyst of taking a year off was also the fact that my partner quit her job in New York—which she’s now got back in London, which is really cool—but we were just basically like, let’s quit our jobs and have a year of forming a tight bond. So we went traveling and spent every day for a year together.”
And they’re not sick of each other in the least! “I’ve probably had three days apart from her in the last year…but we’re very, very strong. I’ve never been happier. I’ve never been more comfortable. I’ve never been more inspired. I feel like everything’s fallen into place, and it’s fallen into place because I’ve given it the time to fall into place.”
Looks like we might be seeing a new role for Ed very soon: father!
