“Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you…,” he wrote.

“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.”

The ‘Thinking Out Loud singer confirmed he’d married his long-term love Cherry last year when discussing a song where he mentions his “wife”.

“It was actually before me and Cherry got married and I knew that we’d be married by the point that the song came out,” he explained.

“[I knew] someone’s gonna hear that and be like, ‘Oh, they’re married!’ I didn’t know how that would be construed, but obviously it’s already come out.”

He also said previously he would slow down his career in order to start a family.

“Something has to give,” he said. “I’m starting a life with Cherry and I can’t spend the next 20 years on the road. Kids would be the different thing. I wouldn’t mind sacrificing for them.

“If someone told me you can’t tour again for the next 10 years if you have kids that is fine, because that is what I have signed up for. I’ve already achieved more than I thought I would, so now I’m just trying to have fun.”
