Ed Sheeran says he has Taylor Swift to thank for his engagement

It all kicked off on the Fourth of July.

WE ALL KNOW that Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift go way back, but we didn’t realise that the Shape Of You singer actually had Taylor to thank for his impending nuptials.

Well, you know, kind of.


As Ed features on Taylor’s latest track, End Game, the pair spent some time discussing the meaning behind the single’s lyrics, with Ed revealing that his reference to the Fourth of July was a tribute to his relationship with fiancée Cherry Seaborn.

While hanging out behind the scenes of the music video, the British singer explained that a party Taylor threw for Independence Day ultimately acted as the catalyst for his recent engagement.

Indeed, the footage reveals that Taylor was a key player in the early days of Ed’s relationship with Cherry.

So the story was, I was at Taylor’s party, and then a girl I went to school with who’s pretty cool ended up being in Rhode Island… I was like, ‘Taylor, can she turn up?’ And here we are.”

And it seems Taylor is only bloody delighted by the role she played in the romance.

Remember the sign that I made for your first anniversary. Happy Ed-iver-Cherry. I’m still excited about it. It took me so long to think of both of your names!

26-year-old Ed, who has been dating Cherry since 2015, announced their engagement on Instagram in January 2018.
