Ed Sheeran reveals being a dad pushed him to 'detox' lifestyle

Ed Sheeran has said that he was pushed into "detoxing" his life after he became a father to his daughter last year. Sheeran's wife Cherry Seaborn gave birth to Lyra in August 2020, and the "Bad Habits" singer explained that he has since been "quite clean-living". Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "I stopped [drinking] three months before Lyra was born because I was determined I was going to be the person to drive my wife to the hospital ... I had a 36 waist; now I'm down to 28." Sheeran's next album = is released on Friday.
