We’ve seen a lot more of Ed Sheeran’s life recently, especially with the trailer for his upcoming documentary series The Sum Of It All being recently released.
In the trailer, we’re welcomed into the highs and lows of Sheeran’s life, as well as given a personal insight on his journey to stardom.
The trailer for his new show starts with a montage of clips from Sheeran’s life, from his childhood to current life on stage, with him talking about his rise to stardom.
Videos of him starting out, playing to small intimate crowds asking them to buy his CDs so he can ‘pay for his food’ are placed side by side with clips where he’s playing sold out arenas.
The series will also follow his relationship with wife Cherry Seaborn, and their two children together.
Their first child was born in August of 2020, and is called Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. Their second daughter was born in May 2022.
Nearly one year after the couple welcomed her into the world, the singer is revealing her name. He confirmed that the 10-month-old’s name as Jupiter in a Rolling Stone cover story published March 21.
However, the name divided fans in opinion.
”Why do people – namely celebrities give their babies such awful names? Ed Sheeran’s youngest baby girl is called Jupiter” one person tweeted.
Whilst others were quick to jump to its defence.
”Jupiter Sheeran… Sooo damn cute!!!!” one fan exclaimed online.
The news comes a few weeks after the musician shared that Cherry was diagnosed with a tumor while pregnant with Jupiter, and that she couldn’t be operated on until after the birth.
The “Perfect” singer told Rolling Stone that he and Cherry considered delivering Jupiter early, however his wife ended up carrying their daughter the full term. She underwent a successful surgery for the tumor in June 2022.
He also opened up more in a recent Instagram post, where he announced his new album Subtract, delving into the struggles he’s faced over the last few years, and how he’s poured it all into his songwriting process.
”Within the space of a month, my pregnant wife got told she had a tumour, with no route to treatment until after the birth. My best friend Jamal, a brother to me, died suddenly, and I found myself standing in court defending my integrity and career as a songwriter,” he wrote in the caption.
”I was spiralling through fear, depression and anxiety. I felt like I was drowning, head below the surface, looking up but not being able to break through for air. ”
Subtract will be available to stream on May 5, and The Sum Of It All will premier on Disney+ on 3 May.
