Sheeran and Seaborn first met at school when Sheeran was 11. They reconnected in the summer of 2015 and began dating.
Sheeran proposed in December 2017, and the pair married in January 2019.
Last year, the couple appeared in their first music video together for his single “Put It All on Me,” where they were seen in their London apartment dancing and cuddling for the camera.
Beneath each couple was a caption with an explanation of how they fell in love. For Sheeran and Seaborn, it read: “Back in high school, Ed and Cherry were crushing hard.”
“They made out at the castle on the hill,” the caption continued. “A few years ago they reconnected, there were fireworks. They married in January 2019.”
