The notoriously private musician Ed Sheeran took to Instagram for the first time all year to announce that he and wife Cherry Seaborn welcomed a daughter last week, Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. He wrote that he and Seaborn are "on cloud nine" in love and that everyone is doing well. Delivering babies is a risky practice during the pandemic, but Sheeran and Seaborn had an "incredible" team behind them.
Somehow, Sheeran manages to pull off these milestones with the most privacy of any celebrity. He and Seaborn secretly married last year after several years of dating, and he's always managed to avoid making any grand announcements. However, the birth of a baby is certainly news-worthy. In December of 2019, Sheeran posted that he'd be taking a break from music and social media following a whirlwind of touring. The birth announcement was his first post in nine months.

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
"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," he wrapped up the post. Surely we'll be getting lots of new Lyra-themed material soon.
