Ed Sheeran wants to be remembered as a 'good dad'

Ed Sheeran has hinted he's ready to start a family because he wants to be remembered as a "good dad".

The 'Shape Of You' singer - who is in a relationship with former school friend Cherry Seaborn - is incredibly driven and focused on his career but insists he isn't defined by his work and would rather be remembered for his personal life than his professional achievements.

He told GQ magazine: "As the brand guy, I am a musician. But it doesn't define me as a person. I want to be remembered for being a good dad and raising my children well."

The 25-year-old singer recently admitted he is "ready" to have children.

He said when asked if he was excited to become a dad in the future: "Massively, yeah. I wanted to be a dad, like, last year. I'm ready, let's go - tour bus babies, little fat, chubby babies that just walk around."

Although the pair might not have children just yet, Ed recently revealed they are living together and have taken the first step to creating a family by getting pet cats together.

He said: "I'm actually the happiest I've been and it's because I had a year to spend with someone. I've always started relationships then gone off on tour. I spent every day for a year with this certain person, we kind of have a strong relationship now which is good. I'm really secure now, we live together and we have cats, and I think when you have cats that's kind of it."

And the 'A Team' singer recently implied he wants to marry Cherry.

Asked if his relationship with Cherry has the potential to be a "marriage thing", the 'Castle on the Hill' hitmaker said: "I'm pretty ... yeah, I feel pretty good about it."
