He is married to Cherry Seaborn, whom he met at Thomas Mills. The two attended the high school and reconnected later in life, with Sheeran maintaining he always had a crush on his future bride.

The high school's director of music and head of arts made a statement that expressed gratitude on behalf of the institution as well as how the money would be setting the school apart in the arts programmes that they are now able to offer.

Cherry attended university in both the UK and the US where she got degrees in molecular biology and business studies. Ed and Cherry reconnected around 2015 and, after dating for four years, reportedly tied the knot last year. The couple kept the news private, as they do with most of their personal life events.
