Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn are talking about how they handled the scary news that she had cancer. Sheeran told his fans earlier this year when he told them about his new record Subtract, that Seaborn had been diagnosed with a tumor while she was pregnant.
“Within the space of a month, my pregnant wife got told she had a tumor, with no route to treatment until after the birth,” he wrote on Instagram in March.
In the upcoming Disney+ documentary series The Sum of It All, Sheeran and Seaborn talk about how scary it was before they had their second child in May 2022.
“Long story short, I got diagnosed with cancer at the start of the year, which was a massive s***ter, but it made me massively reflect on our mortality,” Seaborn said in the series, according to the Independent.

The diagnosis also made her agree to make a documentary about their lives. “I was saying to Eds, I’d never have agreed to do anything like this before – never, ever, ever – but it made me think this whole year, if I died, what’s people’s perception of me? What am I going to leave behind? It genuinely wasn’t until this year when I was just like, ‘I might die’,” she said.
Seaborn also talked about how sweet Sheeran was when he found out about the growth. “We had the diagnosis of the tumor and the next day, Eds went down into the basement and wrote seven songs in four hours,” she said. “Some people write a diary and get their emotions out through the pen and, for Eds, if something really intense happens, he’ll go and write a song.”
The Sum Of It All will be available on Disney+ on May 3rd.
