“My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids.”
Ed Sheeran has hinted he may quit music after having children.
The Divide singer recently got engaged to his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn and has hinted having children may prompt him into early retirement, as his “ambition is going to go to zero”.
“My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids,” he told the Daily Star.
“I am going to be like, ‘I do not really care anymore as I have another life to take care of’.
“It is totally understandable because you have children and your ambition shifts to be like, ‘I want to be a good father’.”
Right now, it’s thought the music maker is working on his fourth studio album while touring Divide.
There are rumours that the album could be his last, although, according to Ed, he may follow the opposite path to his pal and ‘End Game’ collaborator Taylor Swift by going down a country route after cracking the pop world.
“To be honest my ambition is dwindling a little bit because I have achieved far more than I thought I ever would,” he added. “I do not know what to do next. I feel like when you play a stadium, you cannot play any bigger than that because what do you do? Sell 15 million albums? What do you do on your next album?
“My ambition next is a silly small ambition to write a country music song that goes to number one on country radio in America.
“I know that is not like playing Wembley Stadium, but for me that is the next thing.”
Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
