An emotional watch.

Ed Sheeran can be seen breaking down into tears as he discusses the impact his wife’s health struggles and the death of his friend Jamal Edwards had on him.

A four-part series on Disney+ following the singer’s rise to international fame, titled The Sum Of It All, will air on May 3rd and sees Sheeran open up about his life and career.

In the first trailer for the series, we see Sheeran talking about his childhood, growing up with a stutter, and saying, “That guy doesn’t grow up to be a pop star. It’s so unlikely.”

Ed’s wife Cherry Seaborn is also seen in the docu-series, with clips of her pregnant with the couple’s two children Lyra, two, and Jupiter, 10 months.

The pair are seen going on dates together, with Sheeran saying: “Everything in my life sort of got so much better when Cherry came into it.”

Doctors discovered a tumour when Cherry was pregnant.

However, the series also delves into Cherry’s health issues and the toll it had on the couple. Ed Sheeran revealed earlier this month that Cherry had been diagnosed with a tumour whilst she was pregnant with Jupiter.

Because of her pregnancy, Cherry could not be treated until after she had given birth, and Sheeran said they had been plagued with “fear, depression and anxiety” during this period.

In the trailer for The Sum Of It All, Sheeran becomes visibly emotional as he discusses how much he struggled as the death of his friend was compounded by his wife’s health struggles.

A clip is shown of him crying on stage as well, with Cherry saying: “I’ve never seen him cry on stage.”

She adds: “He hasn’t had the time to process and be at peace with his thoughts.”
