"We are very happy and in love," the 26-year-old pop star wrote on Instagram. "And our cats are chuffed as well."

Sheeran and Seaborn actually have known each other since they were 11 years old. Ed revealed to PEOPLE Magazine that they had reconnected when he was on tour in New York City back in 2015. 

The GRAMMY award winning singer said they began dating after he invited Seaborn to Taylor Swift's house for a Fourth of July party later that year. 

Ed has revealed that Cherry was the inspiration behind his smash hit song "Perfect," but Ed offered some EXCLUSIVE love advice to our listeners recently.
