Ed Sheeran says becoming a dad will stop him from touring

The singer-songwriter was recently confronted with a picture of his 'baby lookalike'.

Ed Sheeran has discussed the impact that becoming a father will have on his music career.

The singer-songwriter revealed that he won’t have children until he wants to take a break from touring.

“I don’t want to be touring when I have kids,” he told Richard Arnold on Good Morning Britain. “I want to be nipping out now and then and actually being able to be a father. So yeah, I think I would definitely have kids, I’d definitely love all the kids in the world, but I don’t want to have them right now.”

During the interview, Sheeran also responded to the viral photo of his ‘baby lookalike’. Fans have said the baby, a two-year-old girl from Devon, looks “more like Ed Sheeran than Ed Sheeran”.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that Sheeran has given songwriting credits to the writers of TLC’s R&B classic, ‘No Scrubs’, because of alleged similarities with his Number One hit ‘Shape Of You’. Last week ’80s favourite Rick Astley covered ‘Shape Of You’ on his latest tour.
