Ed Sheeran made a brief return to Instagram this morning to announce that he and his wife Cherry Seaborn have just become parents to a baby girl, Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.

"Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you..." Sheeran started his Instagram. "Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter - Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x."

The Sun points out that Lyra's name likely came from Sheeran's favorite book series, His Dark Materials, where the protagonist's name is Lyra Belacqua.

In July 2019, Sheeran confirmed he married Seaborn when discussing his song "Remember the Name," where he raps about his "wife."

"It was actually before me and Cherry got married, and I knew that we'd be married by the point that the song came out," he explained to The Breakfast Club host Charlamagne Tha God. "So I said, 'Watch how the lyrics in this song might get twisted/My wife wears red but looks better without the lipstick,' And I was like 'cause someone's going to hear that and be like 'Oh they're married,' and I didn't know how that would be. But, obviously, it's already come out."
