Ed Sheeran has said that he will quit music the second he and now fiancée Cherry Seaborn have a baby.

According to The Daily Star, Sheeran said: “My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids. I am going to be like, ‘I do not really care anymore as I have another life to take care of'”.

I think if there’s one thing parents know, it’s that you can’t really predict how becoming one is going to affect you. But, to be fair, if we could all use our kids as an excuse to quit our jobs we probably would.

“It is totally understandable”, he goes on, “because you have children and your ambition shifts to be like, ‘I want to be a good father'”.

Sure, Ed. Sure. Although, having all quit our jobs (financial implications aside), how long it would then take for each of us to go and beg for it back would depend on the parent I guess. And the job I suppose. Let’s just say, I think we can fairly confidently expect an album from Ed within six to twelve months of delivery.
