Ed Sheeran Reveals His Wife Was Diagnosed With A Tumor During Pregnancy

Ed Sheeran's Wife Cherry had tumor while pregnant

Ed Sheeran is pouring everything into his new album.

The Thinking Out Loud singer is on the cusp of releasing new music, and he wants you to know that it’s been influenced by some of his most personal life events to date. In a handwritten note shared on Twitter post early Wednesday morning, the 32-year-old announced his latest album, Subtract, which was originally the culmination of a “decade” of work spent crafting “the perfect acoustic album,” was scrapped early last year after several life-changing events changed him forever. He explained:

“At the start of 2022, a series of events changed my life, my mental health, and ultimately the way I viewed music and art.”

He noted that his wife, Cherry Seaborn, who was pregnant with their second daughter, Jupiter, at the time, was diagnosed with a scary medical condition that couldn’t be treated until after the little one was delivered. He explained:

“My pregnant wife got told she had a tumour, with no route to treatment until after the birth.”

How terrifying… On one hand, you would want to do anything you possibly could to preserve the health of the unborn child, but on the other, you would want to make sure that your partner’s health doesn’t become irreversibly damaged, either.

But that wasn’t it… He revealed that during the same month as his wife’s diagnosis, his “best friend,” Jamal Edwards, who he described as “a brother,” died suddenly, before he found himself in court, battling for his “integrity and career as a songwriter.” If you don’t remember, the Perfect singer had to defend his 2017 hit, The Shape Of You, over a copyright infringement case that claimed he copied elements from an existing song.

All of that caused the artist to spiral into “fear, depression and anxiety.” He explained he couldn’t “credibly put a body of work into the world that didn’t accurately represent where I am and how I need to express myself at this point in my life,” so just over a week later, he traded in his decade of work for all new hits:

“Writing songs is my therapy. It helps me make sense of my feelings. I wrote without thought of what the songs would be, I just wrote whatever tumbled out. And in just over a week I replaced a decade’s worth of work with my deepest darkest thoughts.”

He added:

“For the first time, I’m not trying to craft an album people will like, I’m merely putting something out that’s honest and true to where I am in my adult life.”

Since re-writing the album, Sheeran and Cherry welcomed their second baby girl and are “over the moon.” We’re glad that his wife’s tumor didn’t affect the pregnancy, and they are all happy and healthy!

Are YOU excited for his new album? It’ll surely be a tear jerker. Let us know if you’ll be streaming when it drops on May 5!
