Taking to Instagram late last night, the 31-year-old shared a picture of a white pair of baby booties and captioned the snap:

“Want to let you all know we’ve had another beautiful baby girl. We are both so in love with her, and over the moon to be a family of 4 x.”

According to sources, the couple reportedly only confided in their closest family members about the pregnancy, and Sheeran’s spokesperson confirmed to The Sun:

“Ed and Cherry recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl and are on cloud nine.

‘They’re so excited for Lyra to have a little sister and the four of them are currently enjoying some precious family time before Ed heads back on tour.

‘We are delighted for them, and we hope that you can respect their privacy at this special time.”

Ed and Cherry are already parents to elder daughter Lyra Antarctica, 21 months, whom they welcomed in August 2020.

Back in November, Sheeran spoke publicly about how having his daughter Lyra Antarctica was a “blessing” and a “miracle” after the couple was struggling to conceive.

The singer told US radio’s The Breakfast Club how they had booked doctors’ appointments to check everything was okay after “trying to have a kid for a while.”

They then welcomed their first child last August, after conceiving naturally during a holiday in 2019 to Antarctica – which inspired the unusual name.

“We had tried for a while to have a kid, and we’d started going to doctors and figuring out what was up,” the 31-year-old explained.

“I did think it was a miracle, so that’s why I was like, we should have this in the name. A lot of it is mental. It’s about relaxing. So many of my friends have been trying different things like IVF or making sure you’re having sex at the right time on the right day, and then they go to a wedding and get p*ssed and relax and they get pregnant.”

He added: “It’s not a given. It is a real blessing when it happens.”
