"My relationship started on the Fourth of July," he explained about the lyrics of new collaboration End Game, to which Taylor responded "at whose house?!"

Ed then revealed that it was indeed Taylor's house where sparks first flew with his bride-to-be, and he thanked Taylor for allowing him to invite Cherry to her Independence Day soiree.

"So the story was, I was at Taylor’s party, and then a girl I went to school with who’s pretty cool ended up being in Rhode Island…  I was like, "Taylor, can she turn up?" And here we are," he said, before Taylor gushed "she is the coolest."

"Remember the sign that I made for your first anniversary?', she asked, when Ed recalled; 'Happy Anniversa-Cherry?'

"Happy Ed-iver-Cherry!" she said, "I’m still excited about it. It took me so long to think of both of your names…"

Ed announced his engagement to Cherry in January, telling fans he 'got myself a fiancé' in a sweet Instagram post which featured a picture with Ed kissing Cherry's nose.
