Ed Sheeran is going to leave his guitar to one side and become godfather to James Blunt’s son.
The two performers struck up a close friendship in recent years, and Ed has revealed that he had been offered the prestigious task of being one of the young lad’s spiritual guardians.
James Blunt married Sofia Wellesley in 2014, and the couple has yet to announce the name of their son, whose birth he revealed in June 2016.
“James is like a brother to me, actually I’m not quite sure if I can say this, but I’m going to – he’s just made me god-father to his son,” Sheeran told The Sun.
“To be honest, I think he’s only done it because he knows I’ve got a good idea of what sort of person he’d want him to be when he grows up – an absolute lad. We’re going to be brothers for life.”
