“Galway Girl” singer Ed Sheeran has let it slip that he and his fiancée Cherry Seaborn tied the knot in secret.

While speaking with Access the British star, who is proud of his strong Irish roots, pointed to a “wedding ring” on his finger and blushed as he seemed to confirm that the couple have married in private.

During the interview the 27-year-old pop star was asked “What about the wedding details? Have you picked a date? Do you know where? Do you know when yet?”

Rather than dismissing the questions Sheeran seemed to struggle finding a response and simply pointed to the silver ring on his finger… the “wedding ring” finger!

The interviewer went on to say “That's exciting! Congratulations my friend! Congratulations! How did you sneak that one?"

Sheeran responded, still blushing, by saying “Well, I never do anything too public anyway.

Just before New Year, Sheeran shared with fans, via his Instagram, that he popped the question.

Sheeran and Seaborn (26) are childhood friends. They attended the same school but did not begin dating until many years later - they have now been a couple for almost four years.

Congratulations to this super low key couple!
