It’s looking increasingly likely that the rumors Nicole Scherzinger and Ed Sheeran are dating actually have some credence to them. That’s because it’s not only been teased that the Pussycat Dolls singer has now met his parents, but details of their first date have also emerged as well.
According to Grazia magazine via Yahoo Celebrity, Nicole Scherzinger has not only met and socialised with Ed Sheeran’s mother and father, but she mightily impressed them too.
An insider for the publication explained that Ed Sheeran took Scherzinger to his home in Suffolk, England. The source noted, “They have really bonded in recent months.”
They then continued, “Nicole met Ed’s family at the Wembley gig, and really hit it off, so he invited her to hang out in his home village of Framlingham in Suffolk a few days later.”
The source then added further details of Sheeran’s first date with Scherzinger, explaining how he kept it very down to earth by just taking her to his local pub where they ate pizza and drank beers.
The insider added, “They ate pizza and drank beers at his favorite pub, The Station,” which is an establishment that he had taken Taylor Swift to previously.
Meanwhile, another source divulged further details of their burgeoning romance to Heat magazine by way of the Mirror, explaining that the 24-year-old took 37-year-old Scherzinger out for a meal after one of his sold-out Wembley Stadium shows last month.
They told the publication, “Ed’s a man of simple pleasures. After the gig, he ordered Pizza Express takeway for him and Nicole and they drank supermarket brand vodka mixed with Fruit and Barley squash. It doesn’t sound like much but she loved it.”
Meanwhile, despite the fact that the duo have apparently been spending quite a bit of time together, a source close to Sheeran insisted that he “is playing down any romance” before adding, “but they are certainly close.”
Nicole Scherzinger, who was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but regards herself as an honorary Brit, has previously dated British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. They originally were in a relationship between 2007 and 2010 before they were then on and off again until late last year.
