Is Ed Sheeran engaged? The “Thinking Out Loud” singer might soon be tying the knot as Russell Crowe accidentally confirmed that he is already taking his relationship to Cherry Seaborn to the next level.
During a radio interview with Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa on May 19, Russell slipped up about Ed’s current relationship status while talking about how his friend stayed at his home in New South Wales.
“He was on tour here and he was getting a bit burned out so he came up and stayed at the farm for a couple of days to get some sleep and then we became conversational mates,” Crowe told Fitzy & Wippa on Friday before slipping up on whether or not Ed Sheeran is engaged.
What he said next might just be the epitome of “that awkward moment when your mate spills the beans,” as Nova puts it.
“We just became friendly and he has since come back with his fiancée for more time and stuff.”
For those of you who missed it, Russell was talking about Cherry Seaborn, the singer’s girlfriend for a very long time.
Before rumors about Ed Sheeran’s engagement emerged, Cherry was the singer-songwriter’s childhood crush who later became the love of his life, per a report from The Sun. She and Ed met at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham where they went to school together.
After graduating in high school, Cherry and Ed endured a long-distance relationship when she attended Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, to get her degree.
In the article, The Sun even revealed how the “Shape of You” crooner hinted at tying the knot with her and said that what he has with Cherry has the potential to be a “marriage thing” which quashes any doubt on their relationship.
“I’m pretty…yeah I feel pretty good about it,” he said.
Now, the question remains: Is Ed Sheeran engaged to Cherry Seaborn? Based on what Russell Crowe had to tell Nova, there is a good chance that he already is.
On top of that, the fact that the 26-year-old musician seems to be truly besotted by the 24-year-old hockey player based on his interviews — both past and present — looks like the happy ending of a romantic movie.
A previous article from The Sun even revealed how things turned out when Cherry moved back to the U.K. from the U.S. to be with the singer. The outlet even had a source who confirmed that they are “getting more serious about each other.”
“Now Ed’s on the verge of his big comeback she will be on hand to support him, and their relationship is getting increasingly serious. They’re enjoying being so much closer together.”
If that doesn’t confirm that Ed Sheeran is engaged to Cherry, Russell Crowe’s slip-up might.
Of course, Ed hasn’t always been the kind to kiss and tell, although Hollywood Life was convinced that the “Photograph” singer may have hooked up with some of Taylor Swift’s friends.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, the singer described how that happened.
“Taylor’s world is celebrity,” he said, apparently admitting to hooking up with some of Taylor’s celebrity friends before rumors of his engagement emerged.
“I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates. It was very easy. I would often find myself in situations just kind of waking up and looking over and being like, ‘How the f*** did that happen?’”
Of course, that is already eons ago considering that Ed Sheeran may have secretly put a ring on his relationship with Cherry Seaborn.
