So, who actually is his fiancee Cherry Seaborn?

Cherry Seaborn, 25, was born on May 6, 1992. She attended Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk where she first met Ed Sheeran. She was very good in hockey so moved to the United States to join Duke University in North Carolina.

However, she felt difficulties in the long distance relationship. So, she discontinued her studies and returned back to the United Kingdom to be with her love.
