After providing many newlyweds with the perfect songs to play in their weddings, the British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is all ready to plan his own marriage. Breaking millions of hearts, the widely loved musician announced his engagement with long-time girlfriend Cherry Seaborn on Saturday.

The celebrated singer shared his joy over proposing his childhood friend, whom he was dating since 2015, with his 18 million social media followers along the lines, "Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx."

The "cat lovers" met during their school in Suffolk, England but never got romantically involved until recently when Cherry helped in Sheeran's recovery post his fatal bike accident. The duo travelled the world together for the entire 2016 which acted as a time for their bond to get stronger.

The duo has kept their affairs private but never shied away from accepting their relationship publically. After taking a brief break from music post his accident, Sheeran admitted to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, " This has been the first time I've ever actually had the time to fall in love properly."

Their common love for cats has triggered an instant attraction between the two lovers who are soon to officiate their relationship. In a witty comment, the Irish singer has claimed, "I’m really secure now, we live together and we have cats, and I think when you have cats that’s kind of it."

Sheeran's popularity never acted as a barrier in their relationship as Seaborn herself is a renowned Hockey player who has helped England U21 to clinch the bronze medal at the 2012 European Championships. The 'Shape of You' recently toured India for promoting his album Divide, which was the most popular album on streaming services for 2017.
