Meet Ed Sheeran's delightful granny from Wexford: 'I never think of him as being famous'
Ed Sheeran might be one of the most famous musicians in the world, but he'll always be the same old Edward to his grandmother Anne "Nancy" Sheeran.
His 92-year-old granny praised her superstar grandson for remaining as down-to-earth as ever despite his international success.
"I'll never think of him as being famous I have to say," she told RTE News.
"He's exactly the same as he always is when he visits. And it's very rare because he's always working and when you think he was working from the age of 14, you'd have to feel sorry for him, you know he's so tired but he loved it.
"He's perfectly normal."
Ed's uncle echoed Nancy's statements, speaking of the family's pride at his success.
"He hasn't changed his attitude or his spirit although he's changed his lifestyle," his uncle laughed.
"He's the same lad and he is a good guy. Obviously I'm his uncle and I'm proud of him."
For his newest album Divide, Sheeran displayed his well documented affection for Ireland including a track entitled GAlway Girl.
With mentions of Grafton Street, Carrickfergus, fiddles, céilis, an Irish band and trad tunes, there's no denying just how much the pop star loves our fair isle.
