Ahead of its release on 3 May, Disney are teasing fans with clips from the Ed Sheeran documentary The Sum of It All.
Based off the small snippets we have seen from the trailer so far, it appears that Ed has been very open about some of his struggles, especially with drugs and alcohol.
From someone that is such a big name, fans have praised the singer for being so open about his struggles, with some saying it helps when such a famous face discusses such problems.
Ed welcomed his second daughter, Jupiter, with Cherry Seaborn in May 2022, after the couple had Lyra in August 2020.
Ahead of the baby Lyra arriving, Cherry gave her husband an ultimatum to stop drinking ahead of the imminent arrival.
Speaking as part of the Rolling Stone's cover story, Ed said: "Two months before Lyra was born, Cherry said, ‘If my waters break, do you really want someone else to drive me to the hospital?'
"Because I was just drinking a lot. And that’s when it clicked. I was like, ‘No, actually, I really don’t.’
"And I don’t ever want to be p***** holding my kid. Ever, ever."
The musician continued: "Having a couple of beers is one thing. But having a bottle of vodka is another thing.
"It’s just a realisation of, ‘I’m getting into my thirties. Grow up! You’ve partied, you’ve had this experience. Be happy with that and just be done.’
"I love red wine, and I love beer. I don’t know any old rockers that aren’t alcoholics or sober, and I didn’t want to be either.”
Sheeran has been quite open about his problems with alcohol in the past, revealing that he used to drink every day in an interview with The Sun in 2021.
But since the birth of Lyra, Sheeran said that he has 'become quite clean-living'.
"But I think actually taking time off and not being on tour was the worst thing for my health because I would drink every single day," he added.
“I stopped 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 was 15-and-a-half stone at my peak and I think I’m 10-and-a-half now. I was big; it really showed.
“I had a 36 waist; now I’m down to 28.
“I always knew I was big, but I knew why I was big, too. I loved chicken wings, wine, beer and I never exercised.”
