Oh no! Looks like we won’t have lots of new music from Ed Sheeran! Ed says he might quit music once his first baby is on the way!
And now that Ed Sheeran is engaged, the star seems closer to the possibility now more than ever!
The singer behind Shape of You recently announced his engagement with his childhood sweetheart through an adorable Instagram post. Ed’s engagement seems to have happened in secret before the New Year.
Ed shared the happy news with the most adorable caption, talking about his childhood sweetheart and his cats! He said:
“Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”
But what caught the attention of our fans was something Ed had said before this happy news, since this now highlights his earlier statement.
It seems Ed may quit music after his first born enters this world which was evident from what he told Daily Star.
The star stated earlier this year:
“My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids. I am going to be like, ‘I do not really care anymore as I have another life to take care of.”
“It is totally understandable because you have children and your ambition shifts to be like, ‘I want to be a good father’,” he continued.
The star also further expressed how his interest in music seems to be already fading, which has the world worried. He said:
“To be honest my ambition is dwindling a little bit because I have achieved far more than I thought I ever would.”
It would come off as a surprise to his fans that Ed Sheeran would ever have any trouble with music! But it seems the truth is different from what we had thought.
He further elaborated, saying:
“I do no know what to do next. I feel like when you play a stadium you cannot play any bigger than that because what do you do? Sell 15 million albums? What do you do on your next album?”
“My ambition next is a silly small ambition to write a country music song that goes to number one on country radio in America,” he added.
“I know that it is not like playing Wembley Stadium, but for me that is the next thing.”
And from the looks of it, Ed Sheeran has his priorities sorted.
He also admitted how ready he was to have kids on an Australian radio show, The Kyle and Jackie O Show, where he quite adorably stated that he wants to be a dad since quite some time now!
The ‘Divide’ album artist further added the perfect imagery. He said, “I’m ready, let’s go – tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around.”
This seals the deal that Ed is going to not only a dedicated father but a wonderful one too – and that too probably soon!
We can’t say much about future music from Ed, but dans recently got the treat of his collaboration with Eminem with the song River featured on Em’s new album, ‘Revival’, placed at Number 1 in the UK.
His other collaboration with Beyonce, in his song Perfect, also managed to grab the number one spot on the Official Single Chart.
And he managed to yet again wow the world with his Perfect Symphony in collaboration with the Italian singer, songwriter and record producer, Andrea Bocelli.
With wedding bells about to ring soon with Ed’s engagement announcement, it seems the fans need to prepare themselves for his retirement from music.
We could not be happier for the singer but this has us wondering: are we truly ready to let go of Ed’s music this soon?!
Nonetheless, we wish the very best to Ed and Cherry and we’re sure his loyal fans would understand his decision!
