Here's How Tall Ed Sheeran Really Is

Over the last 10 years, there haven't been many British artists as successful internationally as Ed Sheeran. Sure, Adele, the One Direction boys, and Dua Lipa are all major stars across the world, but Sheeran is one of the few others who can be considered in the same category.

The 30 year old came from regular — if slightly wealthy — beginnings, growing up in the town of Halifax in the north of England and then the town of Framlingham in Suffolk, further south. He released his debut single, "The A Team," in 2011, and it was followed by his debut album "+" later that year. It peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 — while selling over five million copies worldwide (via ChartMasters) — and the rest is history.

Sheeran might not look like the typical glamorous pop star, but he's made a wildly successful career for himself. Something a lot of fans wonder about the "Shape Of You" singer is how tall he is, so we've taken a look. Here's how tall Ed Sheeran really is.

Ed Sheeran is almost average height for a British man

Ed Sheeran stands at 5'8” (via Indy100), just one inch below the average height for men in the U.K. (via The Telegraph). This makes him smaller than a number of his famous pals, including Taylor Swift, who stands at around 5'11”, something that Swift has poked fun at previously — in a video on Instagram, she jokingly accused him of "peacocking," or making himself look bigger, in her presence (via Indy100).

Sheeran might not be the tallest guy around, but he's still around average height, and it's certainly not impacted his career success — or his personal life, for that matter. Per VeryCeleb, his wife Cherry Seaborn is two inches smaller than he is, while the two have a daughter together, Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran, who was born last August (via People). His experience of fatherhood so far has influenced his upcoming fifth album "=" which is set to be released at the end of October 2021 (via Variety).
