Russell Crowe seems to think so...
Despite making a career out of writing love songs, Ed Sheeran actually keeps pretty tight-lipped about his own relationships.
The 26-year-old singer has been dating childhood friend, Cherry Seaborn, since 2015, recently explaining to Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio that he is ready to settle down.
‘This has been the first time I’ve ever actually had the time to fall in love properly,’ he announced. ‘I’ve always got into relationships very passionately – I’m a redhead and also Irish. But then I will get in a relationship and go on tour for 18 months and everything will fuck up. And I’m like, “Oh, what happened?” But it’s because I had no time to put into someone.’
It was when Ed started speaking about children, however, that people started to get excited about Ed and Cherry’s next step. ‘I wanted to be a dad, like, last year. I’m ready, let’s go – tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around’, the singer explained.
There have been rumours of celebrity proposals and secret weddings, with speculation rising that the couple may have taken their relationship to the next level in private, something that actor Russell Crowe only fuelled during a Facebook Live Chat earlier this week.
Talking about his friendship with Ed Sheeran on a Facebook Live chat with Australian radio DJs, Fitzy and Wippa, the 53-year-old actor explained how Ed and Cherry had stayed at his farm, referring to Cherry as Ed’s ‘fiancee’
‘[Ed] 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,’ explained Russell. ‘He has subsequently gone back to the farm with his fiancee for more time.’
Ed and Cherry have yet to comment on the rumours.
