    Childhood friends Sheeran and Seaborn have kept their relationship pretty private—after announcing their engagement on Instagram in January 2018, Sheeran didn't confirm they were married until after the fact, in a July 2019 interview with Charlamagne Tha God on iHeartRadio. Sheeran explained that he wrote lyrics referred to Seaborn as his wife (in his song "Remember The Name") before the couple were actually married.

    "I knew that we'd be married by the point that the song came out," Sheeran said, as CNN reports. "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."
