Ed Sheeran and wife Cherry Seaborn are having a baby, reports claim. The British hitmaker, 29, and his other half, 28, are said to be "over the moon" to be welcoming the tot in the summer after keeping their happy news a secret amid the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. A source close to the private couple told The Sun that Cherry is already in the final stage of her pregnancy. They added that the pair have been holed up in their Suffolk home during the pandemic and have hardly been seen - allowing them to keep their baby news quiet.

The inside told the outlet: “Ed and Cherry are over the moon. They’re very excited, but have kept things very low key. Lockdown was a perfect excuse not to be seen out and about too much, but things are getting closer and the excitement has been building so they have started telling friends and family. They’re just making the last of the preparations at home, and the baby is expected later this summer. It’s a really happy time and their families are all totally delighted for them and cannot wait to meet the new arrival.”

The online site claims that Cherry shared the news with some of her closest circle of friends online last night. Mirror Online have contacted a rep for Ed for comment. The smitten duo tied the knot in December 2018 in front of 40 close friends and family. The bash was reportedly carnival themed, with aerial pictures showing a large red tent tucked in amongs trees.

A source told The Sun earlier: "Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet - just Ed's oldest school pals, limited family and the priest. There were only 40 people - so no Taylor Swift, record company executives or any royals or pop star pals. He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them - just a tiny winter wedding.”
