26-year-old Sheeran announced his engagement to 25-year-old hockey player and former risk strategist Cherry Seaborn on Saturday afternoon via an Instagram post.

To make it social media-official, the singer posted a candid photo of the couple with the caption, "Got myself a fiancée just before new year".

Sheeran told People Magazine past year that he's known Seaborn since they were children but they didn't start dating until he invited her to Taylor Swift's Fourth of July party in 2015.

Sheeran and Seaborn first met when they attended school together at Thomas Mills High School in the village of Framlingham in Suffolk, according to The Sun.

The pair bumped into each other by chance at a bar in NY while Sheeran was touring.

Seaborn, on the other hand, went to Durham University then flew across the Atlantic to study Molecular Biology at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina for a short stint.

She is now working as a senior consultant in risk advisory for the global accounting firm Deloitte in London. She previously competed in the British University Ice Hockey Championship in 2012 and 2013. The singer announced via Instagram that he and his girlfriend of the past couple years are now engaged to be married. It was Seaborn who was there for Sheeran after his bicycle accident, and while he took a year off from his career.

"My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids". "She worked on Wall Street in NY, and I had like six shows [around NY in 2015]". But it's not really up to me.

He proposed late previous year.

And when asked if he thought Cherry was indeed the girl he'd marry, Sheeran gushed, "Undoubtedly, undoubtedly".
