Ed Sheeran's wife Cherry thought she would die after finding tumour at six months pregnant

Ed Sheeran's wife Cherry thought she would die after finding tumour at six months pregnant

Cherry was diagnosed with cancer in February 2022.

Ed Sheeran's wife Cherry has admitted that she thought she might die after doctors discovered a 'really bad' tumour last year.

Cherry, 30, joined Ed for his new documentary The Sum Of It All to talk about the devastating cancer diagnosis she was told of while six months pregnant with their daughter Juniper.

The couple, who are also parents to daughter Lyra, were told last year that Cherry had cancer, but since she was pregnant with Juniper at the time, the tumour couldn't be operated on.

As time progressed, she started to fear the worst.

Speaking on Ed's new documentary, Cherry explained: "Long story short, I got diagnosed with cancer at the start of the year, which was a massive s**tter, but it made me massively reflect on our mortality.

"I was saying to Eds, I'd never have agreed to do anything like this [a documentary] before - never, ever, ever - but it made me think this whole year, if I died, what's people's perception of me?

"What am I going to leave behind? It genuinely wasn't until this year when I was just like, ‘I might die’."

Ed and his wife Cherry were petrified after her first diagnosis.

At first, doctors told Cherry that things looked 'really bad', forcing Ed to cancel all of his plans to be with her while they awaited a full report.

But, thankfully, a sequencing test found that the tumour was much less severe than they had originally been told, and Cherry could receive treatment after giving birth to Juniper.

Recalling the relief they felt in that moment, Cherry told cameras: "It was the most incredible news. I nearly threw up when the surgeon told us we could wait to the end of the pregnancy to get the tumour out.

"We didn't have to worry about delivering the baby early."

Ed also spoke candidly about the mental anguish he went through during Cherry's health scare, admitting that, between that, the unexpected death of Jamal Edwards, and a plagiarism suit against him over his song 'Shape Of You', he was in a bad state.

"The moment you find out that the worst thing in the world has happened to someone you truly love with all your heart, you feel like you're drowning and can't get out from under it," he said.

"I remember being sat in this specialists waiting room thinking the worst was going to happen. I'm worried about Cherry.

Cherry was six months pregnant when the tumour was discovered. .

"'The unborn daughter, that's in her. You start writing a song and you vent a little bit and that's why songs get written."

Thankfully, Cherry is all good now and has been told that her tumour hasn't returned.

In a wonderful update later in the documentary, Cherry assures viewers: "Yesterday I had follow up scan in my arm to see if the tumour had come back. We were silent in the car as we were worried it would be bad.

"It was super triggering being in the same room when things weren't so positive at the start of the year.

"The surgeon looked at the scans and it all looks good. The Lymph nodes have all calmed down. That was amazing. it was massive for us."
