An English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran announces the birth of his daughter with wife Cherry Seaborn.
He named his firstborn as “Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran” after his favorite book series; His Dark Materials – by Philip Pullman.
The 29-year-old singer took Instagram to give his fans the news of starting the journey of fatherhood. He posted a picture of Lyra’s colorful blanket and announced the birth of his daughter on Tuesday morning.
Both mum and the baby are doing amazing, and we are on cloud nine over here. – Ed Sheeran
However, the artist also urged his fans to respect his privacy, he wrote
Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x.
Moreover, Lyra Belacqua, also known as Lyra Silvertongue, is the protagonist of Ed’s favorite book by Pullman.
In 2015, Ed commented that the trilogy by Pullman is by far the ‘best book’ he has ever read. Ed was so inspired by the book that he named his firstborn after the main character Lyra Silvertongue.
According to reports, the news of Cherry expecting was told to the media only last month. The couple managed to keep the big news hidden from their fans amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, in March Cherry was pictured with a baby bump – five months before it was announced to the world that she and Ed were having their first child together.
The source that broke the news to The Sun said that the couple is over the moon and really excited for the arrival of their child.
The couple is making last preparations at home, the child is expected later this summer. And both of their families are very delighted. – Source
