“Got myself a fiancée just before new year,” the singer posted on Instagram on Saturday, captioning a sweet photo of he and Seaborn.“We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”
Sheeran and Seaborn have been dating for 3 years but have known one another since high school. They began dating in the summer of 2015 after connecting in Rhode Island where they were both vacationing. Sheeran brought Seaborn to Taylor Swift’s 4th of July party and they’ve been together ever since.

The singer recently revealed his latest single, “Perfect,” is inspired by Seaborn. He wrote the song after a party at the Ibiza home of his friend, James Blunt. The couple danced on the lawn and jumped in the pool. The next day Sheeran wrote the song.
