ED Sheeran has teased fans by posting a picture of his ‘baby’ – but it was actually his CAT.
The new dad – who is yet to reveal a snap of his newborn with wife Cherry – posted from his alter ego Instagram account, which he shares the thoughts of his pet cats Calippo & Dorito.
Sharing a picture of the cats in front a handwritten note, the caption said: “Baby been on a diet cos baby got back.”
The note read: “Don’t feed the cats!! Even if Dento gives you ‘the eyes’…
“She has a bad tum. Naughty puss.”
Ed is famously known for keeping fans in the dark about his private life.
He didn’t announce Cherry’s pregnancy until their little girl was born in September.
Ed told fans on Instagram: “Ello! A quick message from me as I have some 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. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here.
“We hope that 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.”

Lyra’s adorable name is inspired by the main character in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series, which Ed has called the “best books I’ve ever read”.
The award-winning fantasy trilogy sees teens Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry traverse parallel universes as they become embroiled in an epic war.
The intrepid Lyra is adventurous and intelligent but is also highly devious, with her nickname being Silvertongue.
