When asked if Seaborn could be “the one,” the singer was unequivocal in his response.

“Undoubtedly, undoubtedly,” he said. “But I think if you ever enter into a long-term relationship and you have a doubt, then you shouldn’t be in the long-term relationship.”

Sheeran went on to reveal that he never thought he’d find himself with someone from his high school days: “I actually always thought I’d end up dating like an actress or something, someone in the industry,” he explained. “But I don’t think I’m that kind of person. I’m a hometown boy.”

He went on to detail how Seaborn inspired the song “Perfect” after a wild night at the Ibiza home of his friend, James Blunt.

“We got really hammered and took our shoes off and danced on his lawn and then jumped in the pool,” Sheeran revealed. “And then the next day I was like, ‘that’s a cool story,’ so I put it in a song.”
