Ed Sheeran has joked his baby girl doesn't like his music as he gave a rare insight into his daughter.

The Shape of You singer, 30, became a dad last year as he and his wife Cherry Seaborn welcomed their first child together.

Ed is incredibly private about his personal life and has since kept tight lipped about his daughter Lyra.

But, he has delighted fans by sharing a rare, and hilarious, insight into his daughter.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1 ahead of his performance at the Big Weekend of Live Music 2021, the hitmaker answered questions sent in from some of his younger fans.

And, he revealed his daughter isn't the biggest fan of all his songs.

He explained: "I definitely spent hours and hours in front of the mirror pretending to be essentially what I am now. Practice makes perfect innit.

"Now I'll sing [my new songs] to my daughter who's not my biggest fan. She just cries.

"No, I've got some she likes. She really likes Shape Of You, the marimba sound is good but she doesn't like anything loud or anything belty."

Ed, who looked very different as he was rejected in a resurfaced Britannia High audition clip, announced the arrival of his daughter with a sweet Instagram page last year.

The singer posted a snap of a pair of little socks on a rainbow knitted blanket.

He then told fans in the caption: "Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you…

"Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.

"We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time."

Ed, who shares a £19.8million home with Cherry and his newborn, added: "Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x".

Singer Ed and Cherry are said to have got together in 2015, after initially meeting at school and reconnecting sometime later.

But the pair kept their romance private for some time, as they we outed when Taylor Swift shared a picture from a party celebrating the couple’s first anniversary together.

In the snap, Taylor hugs her newly-engaged friends Abigail and Matt as Ed and Cherry kiss in the background below a banner with the words: "Happy 1st Ed-Iver-Cheery!"

Then, in 2018 the couple announced they were engaged as Ed shared a sweet Instagram post and wrote alongside it: “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”.

Ed and Cherry are said to have tied the knot at her family church in Suffolk in a secret ceremony in December 2018.
