Hardcore Ed Sheeran fans did some digging and found out their new baby girl’s middle name is named after where she was conceived. The couple welcomed Lyra Antarctica recently, and they noted that Lyra is actually the name of a character one of Ed’s favorite books – “His Dark Materials” — the inspiration for her middle name?
Ed and his wife Cherry Seaborn took a cruise to Antarctica in late December — in other words, almost exactly nine months ago.

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. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x
