Ed Sheeran is settling down.

The “Shape of You” singer announced on Saturday morning that he is engaged to his girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn.

“Got myself a fiancé just before new year,” he wrote. “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”

Sheeran and Seaborn began dating in 2015, but they’ve known each other since they were kids.

“I’ve known Cherry since I was 11,” Sheeran told PEOPLE last year. “She worked on Wall Street in New York, and I had like six shows [around New York in 2015]. It was around then, and we reconnected. I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor’s 4th of July party. I was texting [Seaborn], and she was like, ‘I’m in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,’ and I was like, ‘So am I.’ I kinda said to Taylor, ‘Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?’ The rest is history.”
