Sheeran's short statement makes an important point about modern relationships, and the idea that guys should be able to wear engagement rings (or, "mangagement rings", as they're being nicknamed) if they desire to.
"No, I'm not married", Sheeran said while attending the 2018 Brit Awards in London.
At Wednesday night (February 21)'s BRIT Awards, eagle-eyed spectators noticed a conspicuous ring on Ed Sheeran's left ring finger - the one where people would normally sport a wedding band. "It's the same commitment either way", he explained to Dan Wootton of British talk show Lorraine.
He was first spotted wearing the accessory during a London show on Monday, which immediately caused fans to speculate that he and his longtime love, 25, had tied the knot. "Lmaooo I'm dead", "Elton John getting Ed Sheeran's name wrong has made my 2018" and 'Elton John pronouncing Ed Sheeran has me WHEEZING'. I should just enjoy this while it's there but not let it become my reality. "We are very happy and in love", he wrote, adding: "And our cats are chuffed as well xx".
"Got myself a fiancé just before new year", the singer captioned a photo of himself kissing Seaborn. In the picture, Sheeran plants a kiss on the side of Seaborn's face.
"It will be a situation like this where no one knows", he smiled. In 2015, when Seaborn, a risk advisory consultant, was working on Wall Street New York, Sheeran was in the city to perform no less than six concerts.
"And I know the one person that's going to remain constant is Cherry". As he told Rolling Stone in 2017: "One day this will [all] f-king end".
