Ed Sheeran Wrote 7 Songs In 4 Hours After Learning His Wife Had Cancer
Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn married in 2019.

Cherry Seaborn, Ed Sheeran’s wife, stated in the new documentary “The Sum of It All” that the singer-songwriter wrote seven songs in only four hours after being informed of her cancer diagnosis.
The difficulties and hardships of the pair were covered by The Daily Mail UK. In February 2022, when Seaborn was six months along with her second pregnancy, a tumor was discovered.
“I got diagnosed with cancer at the start of the year, which was a massive shitter, but it made me massively reflect on our mortality. We had the diagnosis of the tumour and the next day Eds went down into the basement and wrote seven songs in four hours. Some people write a diary and get their emotions out through the pen and, for Eds, if something really intense happens, he’ll go and write a song.
“I was saying to Eds, I’d never have agreed to do anything like this before — never, ever, ever — but it made me think this whole year, if I died, what’s people’s perception of me What am I going to leave behind? It genuinely wasn’t until this year when I was just like I might die.”
Ed Sheeran reportedly broke down in tears when speaking about his worries about perhaps losing his wife in the documentary.
Although the 32-year-old Grammy winner admitted that it was a terrible time for him, music served as his “therapy.” Sheeran was also dealing with the loss of his buddy Jamal Edwards during this time, and he was also involved in a legal dispute over accusations of plagiarism in connection with his popular song “Shape of You.” The musician admitted that the trying experience served as the inspiration for his latest album, “Subtract,” which captures his innermost feelings.
In his words, “Music has always been like therapy to me. It was a way to get my thoughts and feelings down as a kid, and it works. It really works. The moment you find the worst thing has happened to someone you truly love, you feel like you’re drowning and can’t get out from under it.
“Just from that situation, all these songs came out. It’s scary putting your deepest, darkest thoughts out into the world, but I think I’m super ready to just put Subtract out and move on from it emotionally. That was a horrible, horrible, horrible month. Life hasn’t moved on for me yet and I don’t think it will.”
Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn exchanged wedding vows in 2019. Lyra Antarctica and Jupiter, two new additions to the family, were born since then.
