Ed Sheeran cheers on wife as pop star drops in to watch hockey match

He is one of the world’s biggest music artists – but it was Ed Sheeran’s wife who took centre stage on the hockey pitch. And the Shape of You singer took time out from his world tour to cheer Cherry Seaborn on from the sidelines.

Ed, 32, recently told of forming an “unbreakable bond” with her after revealing his childhood sweetheart was diagnosed with a tumour last year.

But Cherry appeared to be back to full strength as she played with the Harleston Magpies in their home game.

Singer-songwriter Ed donned a long black coat and green hat and looked engrossed as he joined other spectators to see the tense match against Canterbury.

It ended with Cherry’s team avoiding relegation thanks to a 3-0 win.

Hockey-mad Cherry was selected for the England U21’s team in 2012 and helped to win the bronze medal at the European Championships.

She took a break from the game after the couple’s first baby, Lyra Antarctica, was born in 2020.

Ed recently opened up about his mental health struggles after his best friend Jamal Edwards died and Cherry was diagnosed with a tumour while pregnant with their youngest daughter last year.

Jamal, a music producer and the son of Loose Women star Brenda Edwards had a heart attack in February.

Announcing the release of his sixth studio album, Subtract, in an Instagram post, Ed spoke of his wife’s health scare.

He said he was plagued with “fear, depression and anxiety” as Cherry’s tumour couldn’t be treated until after the birth of Jupiter, last May.

Last year also saw Ed win a High Court battle over claims he plagiarised another artist’s track for his hit single Shape of You.

Ed said: “Within the space of a month, my pregnant wife got told she had a tumour, with no route to treatment until after the birth.My best friend Jamal, a brother to me, died suddenly, and I found myself standing in court defending my integrity and career as a songwriter.

“I was spiralling through fear, depression and anxiety. I felt like I was drowning, head below the surface, looking up but not being able to break through for air.”

Debuting Subtract at London’s Apollo last month, he said: “I’ve been married now almost five years and I’ve always felt real, real closeness. But last year was when that unbreakable bond was made.”
