Ed Sheeran’s baby daughter tests positive for coronavirus as pair isolate away from wife Cherry

Ed Sheeran is isolating with his one year old daughter Lyra after she tested positive for Covid-19, following Ed's announcement that he had tested positive for the virus.

Both Ed, 30, and Lyra are isolating away from Ed’s partner Cherry, who tested negative for the virus, for 10 days.

Ed said to the Daily Mail: “I’m self-isolating with my daughter. I have been alone with her, without my wife, since we are both positive. I am now going to spend 10 days alone with her.”

The singer did note some positives about the situation though, adding: “Sometimes I am away and spend just two days a week with her, so being able to be with her for 10 straight days is great.”

Ed has had to restructure his plans following his positive test for the virus, telling fans on Instagram that he will strive to maintain plans from his home.

He wrote: “Quick note to tell you that I’ve sadly tested positive for Covid, so I’m now self-isolating and following government guidelines.

“It means that I’m now unable to plough ahead with any in person commitments for now, so I’ll be doing as many of my planned interviews/performances I can from my house.

“Apologies to anyone I’ve let down. Be safe everyone.”

With new new album releasing on Friday, the star was set to make an appearance on Saturday Night Live next weekend on Saturday 6 November.

A source speaking to Page Six revealed that the SNL team are “scrambling” to find a replacement after the news.

They said: “Ed is offering to perform live via video link, but this isn’t something SNL does.

“The show likes to have the performer in studio.”

While unable to perform on SNL, the star will be appearing on CBeebies Bedtime Story segment on Friday 5 November in a pre-recorded segment.

Ed will be reading I Talk Like a River by Jordan Scott on the segment, a story that’s personal to Ed as he struggled with a stutter throughout his childhood.

He said of his stutter: “It made me feel different because I’d be in school and the teacher would ask a question and I’d put my hand in the air, but when it came to my turn to answer I couldn’t get the words out.

“I used to worry that I’d never be able to speak without stuttering. But now I sing and I talk to people all the time.”
