Sheeran’s new No 1 as first child is born – meet Lyra Antarc­tica

- By Eleanor Sharples TV and Ra­dio Re­porter

HE HAS made a string of chart-top­ping records which have sold mil­lions.

But Ed Sheeran ap­peared proud­est of his lat­est pro­duc­tion yes­ter­day – as he an­nounced his wife Cherry Se­aborn had given birth to their first child.

He said the cou­ple, pic­tured, were ‘on cloud nine’ as he posted a pic­ture of a tiny pair of socks and a blan­ket as he re­vealed the ar­rival of Lyra Antarc­tica.

How­ever, there was no photo of the baby girl. Sheeran, 29, wrote to his 31.3mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers: ‘We are com­pletely in love with her. Both mum and baby are do­ing amaz­ing and we are on cloud nine over here.’ The choice of the name Lyra may have been in­spired by the hero­ine in Sheeran’s favourite book se­ries Philip Pull­man’s His Dark Ma­te­ri­als. A pic­ture shared on In­sta­gram of Sheeran ap­par­ently at the South Pole last De­cem­ber hinted at the rea­son for ‘Antarc­tica’.
