Ahead of the release of his new album = on Oct. 29, Ed Sheeran is looking back on his proposal to his wife of two years, Cherry Seaborn. The "Shivers" singer sat down with Norwegian-Swedish talk show Skavlan and spoke on how humanizing it was to ask for Seaborn's hand in marriage in 2017.
“I remember getting down on one knee and I said, ‘Will you marry me?’ And she was like, ‘Are you f---ing joking?’,” the singer recalled. “There was this long silence and I just went, ‘Please?’”
“It was the most human I have ever felt because in my career, sometimes you find it is like, ‘Can I do this?’ and people are like, ‘Yeah.' You kind of get to a point where it becomes normal and then you are in a situation where you are literally on your knees being like, ‘Will you marry me?’” Sheeran continued. “It is such a huge life decision someone has to make in the blink of an eye. Thankfully, she did say yes.”
