There have been rumors going around about Ed Sheeran being engaged, according to his buddy (and potential secret-spiller), Russell Crowe, as well as about him quitting music soon to focus on having a family, according to another source close to the celeb. Now, the 26-year-old singer himself has something to say about his relationship status with his lady love, Cherry Seaborn.

Addressing the recent engagement rumors on Australia鈥檚 Fitzy & Wippa radio show, Sheeran referred to the buzz that was sparked by Crowe referring to Seaborne as Sheeran鈥檚 鈥渇ianc茅e.鈥 鈥淵ou know, he鈥檚 only met Cherry once and I didn鈥檛 introduce her. I didn鈥檛 say anything. I think he just assumed.鈥 While we have to stop for a moment and wonder *why* Sheeran didn鈥檛 introduce his lady (etiquette faux pas?), the singer was more concerned about clearing things up, stating for the record: 鈥淣o, we鈥檙e not engaged.鈥

Though the 鈥淪hape of You鈥 singer may not have popped the question yet to his former high school friend and GF of a year and a half, we can鈥檛 help but wonderful if a proposal is imminent. We certainly wouldn鈥檛 be surprised if we heard the happy news from Sheeran himself sooner rather than later.
