Story highlights

The proud father took to Instagram to announce the arrival of his baby girl.

English singer Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn are the latest high profile couples to have become parents. The couple welcomed a baby girl last week, after keeping the pregnancy news out of the spotlight.

The proud father took to Instagram to announce the arrival of his baby girl. Sheeran posted an adorable picture of his daughter`s socks on a knitted blanket and also revealed her unique name- Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.

The `Shape of You` singer noted in the caption, "Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you...Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter - Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here.We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I`ll see you when it`s time to come back, Ed x,"


Only last month news of the couple's pregnancy came to light. The 28-year-old singer Sheeran had announced in December that he was taking a break from both touring and social media, saying he would return with new music "when the time is right and I`ve lived a little more to actually have something to write about."

He did, however, break that hiatus to pop in on a Zoom lesson for a class of UK schoolchildren in May.

Sheeran and Seaborn were high-school sweethearts; he revealed in his December video for the song `Put It All On Me` that "a few years ago, they reconnected (and) there were fireworks." The video put the date of their nuptials as January 2019.
