Ed Sheeran has announced his semi-retirement at the tender age of 28 in order to spend time with his wife and childhood sweetheart; Cherry Seaborn.

The Beautiful People singer has made a fortune from his music and tour dates, and has appeared at number 17 of the UK's richest musicians in 2019.

The singer told fans at the last gig of his Divide tour that he'll be stepping away from the spotlight to build a life with his new wife.

While on stage at Chantry Park in Ipswitch on Monday, an emotional Sheeran said to the crowd that he had an announcement.

"As you may or not know, I've been on the Divide tour for over two years now and this is the last day of the whole thing.

"There is something very bittersweet about it. I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months," he continued.

"We've played all around the world. Glastonbury, Wembley Stadium. All these amazing venues, America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America – it's been a wild one."

He went on: "I was told before I came on that now at the end of this tour I've played to nine million people around the world. It is the biggest tour ever."

"It's been an emotional day for a lot of people backstage. It kind of feels like, in a weird way, that you're breaking up with a girlfriend that you've been with for years," he joked.

"It sounds odd but it has been a long tour." Monday's concert may as well be his final loop pedal tour gig, as he'll have a band behind him next time.

Fighting back tears, Ed changed out of his Ipswich Town football shirt and put on another one symbolising his home; Framlingham Town.

"This is a Framlingham Town football shirt. I am from Framlingham. Suffolk is my home. I am so happy to be ending this mammoth tour here," he added.

"I want to say thank you to everyone on this tour. Thank you to everyone who has given me a chance. This is my last song. I wrote this when I was 15 years old. See you in a few years' time. Thank you."

Ed low-key married his childhood sweetheart Cherry last December, and recently revealed that they're planning to start a family; "I'm starting a life with Cherry. I can't spend the next 20 years on the road."

"Kids would be the different thing. I wouldn't mind sacrificing for them. If someone told me you can't tour again for the next ten years if you have kids that is fine, because that is what I have signed up for.

"I've already achieved more than I thought I would, so now I'm just trying to have fun."

Ellie Goulding has shared the most joyous news this morning. The Still Falling For You singer announced her engagement in today’s edition of The Times.

The announcement read: “Mr C.W.F. Jopling and Miss E.J. Goulding.

“The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands."

A source told The Sun that the Love Me Like You Do wanted to tell her family and friends first and thought this was a perfect way because the public wouldn’t realise her real name.

They added: “She’s over the moon and has never felt so happy.”

Ellie has been dating art dealer Caspar Jopling for the past 18-months.

Earlier this year, the Under The Sheets singer gushed about her relationship: “We’re really, really happy together. I’m loving my life at the moment.”

Fans were quick to congratulate the songstress following her wonderful news.

“I can’t describe how happy I am for you. I‘m supporting you since 2011 and I can really say that you deserve all the best the world could give,” one fan said.

Another added “We're all so unbelievably happy for you and Caspar and wish you guys the very best only.”

“I’m so happy for you, you deserve all the happiness in the world,” one wrote.

We are overjoyed for Ellie and Caspar. We cannot wait to see her engagement ring.


We have officially reached 'believing in conspiracy theories' section of Kylie Jenner's phantom pregnancy. 

On the one hand, we have all those grainy photos which appear to show the 20-year-old lip kit mogul heavily with child, that covered up Calvin Klein ad and the numerous 'quotes' from 'sources close to the family, and on the other we have approximately nothing from the Kardashian clan themselves. 

However, if we know Kris Jenner like we wish we did, we would think that the momager wouldn't let a little thing like a pregnancy announcement go buy without a sufficient amount of monetisation. 

So, if it was to be announced on KUWTK like Kim's, we wouldn't be surprised. 

Well, this nifty little hypothesis is backed up by some information about the episode titles of the new season of Keeping up with the Kardashians. 

Wikipedia shows that the season finale could be called We're Expecting. 


A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Seeing as both Kim and Khloe have already announced their pregnancy news in the season, this led one Twitter account, Tabloid Art Culture, to point out that the season finale could be Kylie's time to shine. 

Obviously Wikipedia is not the most reliable source for information, but the site has been right about the season's episode titles so far. 

However, the account also speculates that the episode could actually be about big sister Khloe's pregnancy. 

With an updated synopsis being added for episode 18 which details the fact that Khloe is trying to keep her pregnancy secret from the public, it would be that episode 19 focuses on the Good American designer's Instagram announcement. 

The episode doesn't air on E! until February 25, so we still have a few weeks until we find out for sure. 

Seriously, we're cracking up here Kylie, we NEED to know.

Emma also shared the snaps on her social media along with an emotional statement: “So excited to share our news and begin our new adventure, we can't wait to meet you little one. We are having a baby!!!”
