Ed Sheeran reveals hes excited to spend first proper Christmas with daughter Lyra

Ed Sheeran has revealed he is looking forward to spending his first "proper Christmas" with baby daughter Lyra.

The 30 year old welcomed Lyra with his wife Cherry Seaborn, 29, in August 2020 while the UK was still in various coronavirus lockdowns.

But the Bad Habits hitmaker has now admitted he is excited for the "magic" to return to the festive season thanks to his one year old daughter.

Appearing on the Famous Firsts podcasts, host Jenni Falconer asked the superstar about his daughter's first Christmas, with him responding: "I mean last Christmas it was sweet, we got her presents, we dressed her up and stuff like that but she was four months or something.

"This Christmas, it’s just gonna be great. She’s such a joy to have in our lives.

"It brings family together and Christmas for the last – I’d say since I was probably, I moved out of home the same time my brother moved out of home, and Christmas has always been an excuse to come back and drink in the pub with our friends.

"It’s ceased being the family thing where everybody gets excited about Santa Claus coming round. That stops when you’re 16 you know.

"Then it becomes just an excuse to go home. I think when you have a kid it’s suddenly like oh my god, Christmas is actually really magical again.

"I would always watch Love Actually and I’d always watch Blackadder Christmas Carol, but now I’m going to be watching the young Christmas films and it suddenly gets fun again."

Discussing leaving his family home, he continued: "I was in the safety bubble because none of my friends had finished school and they went to university and none of them finished university.

"So there wasn’t ever a time of being a broke struggling musician with all my friends getting jobs and being able to buy beers.

"I was broke, my friends were broke, so I think I was in this safety bubble of not realising that if I crashed on sofas every night of the week, that was the same if I was back home – all my friends were crashing on sofas every night of the week.

"Being 17, 18, 19 helped. In my mind I thought if my friends are going to university, they’ll come out of university at 21 and hopefully if I leave at 17, my career will be going by the time I’m 21 and we will all be on the same trajectory and thankfully it was.

"They all came out of university, got great jobs and I had a career too. I think had I been 21 and struggling and broke, it might have been harder. Probably would have got a plan B or something."
