Is Ed Sheeran secretly married?

The Shape of You singer revealed his engagement to girlfriend Cherry Seaborn in January, announcing in an Instagram post: “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”.  

Now UK media report that Sheeran, who recently took home awards for Best Pop Solo Performance and Pop Vocal Album at the Grammys, was wearing what looked like a wedding band during a concert on Monday night.

The 26-year-old was seen wearing the ring as he played a set for children’s charity War Child at London’s O2 arena.

There has been no immediate comment from Sheeran, who first met Seaborn at school.  The pair reportedly reconnected when she was working in New York in 2015.

They hadn’t disclosed when they planned to get married, but US comedian Ellen DeGeneres on Saturday appeared to hint a ceremony could be imminent when she tweeted: “Happy birthday, @EdSheeran! I’m so excited for your wedding. No need to ask... yes, I’ll sing.”
