The Irish singers – real names – John and Edward Grimes – took to Twitter on Tuesday to share a screenshot of the DM sent to them by Ed and to welcome the new addition.
The Perfect Musician’s post snapshot, written on Monday, read, “Love you guys. Sorry, I have been off social media for so long, just told you that you are awesome and hope to see you soon! I have a girl now by the way, you gonna like it Xxx ”
Following the news of the birth of Ed and Cherry’s baby girl, Jedward revealed the message and typed next to him: “Hi Twitter @Edsheeran has some news for you and we️ we have kept a secret of course Welcome Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. ”
Ed and Jedward’s unlikely friendship dates back a long time and the trio grew closer when they randomly crossed paths in Tornoto, Canada years ago.
Detailing the encounter, Ed told the Irish Sun at the time, “So I yelled at them ‘Jedward’ and got them in my car and we drove to my hotel.
“Then they just started being Jedward and buying Justin Timberlake vinyls on eBay like heaps at a time. ”
And proving he loves boys, he added, “I love Jedward, he’s like a puppy, there’s no way you don’t like Jedward. ”
The maddening daddy Ed announced Lyra’s birth on Instagram on Tuesday, writing, “Ello! A little message from me because I have personal news that I wanted to share with you …
“Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.
“We are completely in love with her. Mom and baby are doing amazingly well and we’re on cloud nine here.
“We hope you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x. ”
