Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn welcomed their first child, Lyra, into the world in August last year
Ed Sheeran paid for his parents to have personal trainer sessions so they were fit enough to spend time with his daughter.
The singer, 30, and his wife Cherry Seaborn welcomed their first child, Lyra, into the world in August last year.
And Ed enlisted his personal trainer to help out his parents John and Imogen, and now his dad’s back is “fixed” and his mum is able to pick up her granddaughter.
He said: “My parents have never, ever exercised and I told them they were going to be grandparents.
“I started using a personal trainer and they were like, ‘We’re doing nothing either,’ so I got my guy to do them on Zoom as well.
“Now, my dad’s back is fixed and my mum can pick up Lyra properly. It’s great.”
Ed also took to exercising when he discovered he was going to be a first-time dad, and he has found plenty of mental benefits to working out daily, as well as losing weight.
Speaking on Australian radio show Carrie and Tommy, he added: “There are so many benefits mentally as well. I’m quite a sluggish person in the day if I’ve just been eating junk food and drinking the night before, but you get up and you reinvigorate yourself.
“I always saw exercise as this horrible thing you had to do, because I saw exercise as running.
“Outside right now it’s p***ing it down with rain, it’s freezing, it’s pitch black. I don’t want to run at this time.
“A guy in Cherry’s year is a personal trainer and we bumped into him in the supermarket.

“When Cherry got pregnant she was very keen to keep fit, so this guy would come round to do weight training with us, then the pandemic happened so it was Zoom.
“We were just like, ‘Let’s do it every day. Let’s get up every day and do an hour of weight training, and then squats or farmer’s walks. Just weight based.
“I ended up losing a ton of weight and becoming really fit, so I just carried on doing weights.
“I just feel great because of it.”
