It’s sad, but true – one day Ed Sheeran’s touring days will come to an end and the “Shape of You” artist already may know when that day will come.

“I don’t want to be touring when I have kids” Sheeran recently told Good Morning Britain. “I want to be like nipping out every now and then and being able to actually be a father.”
Being a father is something the 26-year-old artist has already begun to think about. In fact, it is a part of his idea of happiness.
“This is my idea of happiness; living in the countryside, having a multitude of children always around me and my wife by my side.”
While he has already thought about it and admits that he is “ready,” Sheeran said being a father is not up to him.
“Writing songs every day and then going to pick up my kids at school, I’m ready, but then it’s not me who has to carry a baby in the belly for nine months, so it’s not just up to me.”
Sheeran may know when he wants his touring days to end, but those days will not come in the immediate future as he is about embark on his most recent North American tour. Sheeran will bring his tour to Philadelphia for a two night stay in July at the Wells Fargo Center.
