The singer announced the news on Saturday: "Got myself a fiancé just before new year."

Ed Sheeran has announced his engagement to girlfriend Cherry Seaborn.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter on Saturday morning posted a picture of the two on his Instagram page, saying that they got engaged right before the new year.

Sheeran said they are "very happy and in love" and that their "cats are chuffed as well."

Last fall, he related how Seaborn inspired his song "Perfect," which is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Sheeran and Seaborn were friends when the two attended school in Suffolk, England. They reconnected years later.
