I live with Cherry now. We've got cats, we have takeaways and watch movies, we have people round for dinner. I've never had that. 

I'm ready, let's go - tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around.

Ed and Cherry are childhood friends, who first met at the Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham. They had to part ways after Cherry left for her further studies at Duke University in Durham, North California.

Cherry, a keen hockey player who competed in the British University Championship, is reported to be in a relationship with Ed Sheeran since 2015.

However, things were not easy as they seem now. The long-distance relationship often created troubles, once forcing Cherry to take a year off from her career. Deeply in love with Sheeran, Cherry also transferred to the London office of her company so that she could move in with Ed.

 The year 2017 proved to be a lucky one for Ed. He not only got engaged to his girlfriend but also managed to scoop the Christmas Number 1 position with his song Perfect, featuring Beyonce. He wrote the song reportedly for Cherry. 

Many of us may not know but Cherry used to brush Sheeran's teeth, which he revealed in his interview. Have a look.
