    Rumours about a potential baby began swirling last month, with reports suggesting that Cherry was actually already in her third trimester and due to give birth before the end of summer.

    And now, Ed has not only confirmed that the rumours were true, but also revealed that Cherry has given birth to a daughter in an adorable Instagram post.

    "Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter," Ed said alongside a picture of some socks. "We are completely in love with her."

    The "Shape Of You" singer also revealed his newborn daughter's pretty unique name — Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran, a nod to what Ed once called "the best books" he's ever read.

    Bar far, Philip Pullman - his dark materials are the best books I've ever read.

    Turns out he's a pretty big fan actually.

    Lyra and Will are relationship goals

    The cute baby news comes a year after Ed confirmed that he and Cherry had gotten married in a private ceremony back in 2018.

    Congrats to the happy couple!
