Ed has slowly been sharing more and more about his ~adorable~ love story and now he's spilled about their first date.
Speaking to People, the singer revealed that he and Cherry went from "just friends" to "more than friends" at his bestie Tay's annual Independence Day party at her Rhode Island home.
"I’ve known Cherry since I was 11. She worked on Wall Street in New York, and I had like six shows [around New York City]," Ed explained.
"It was around then, and we reconnected. I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor’s Fourth of July party. I was texting [Cherry], and she was like, 'I’m in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,' and I was like, 'So am I.' I kinda said to Taylor, 'Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?'"
Of course Tay was happy for him to bring her along and "the rest is history," Ed says.
And if you connect the dots, that first date must have been in 2015 because Tay threw them a first anniversary party at her 4th of July bash last year. You might remember she posted a pic of the couple pashing under an adorable and hilariously punny banner which read: "HAPPY 1ST ED-IVER-CHERRY." We're shipping Ched ALL the way.
