The singer, who turned 24 on Tuesday, revealed his light-hearted approached to getting older as he got dressed up in comical style with girlfriend Athina Andrelos.

Taking to her Instagram page, the pretty brunette shared a hilarious photo of the pair in their cumbersome yellow outfits - complete with protective headgear. The couple, who have been dating for more than a year, can be seen holding hands in the snap as Athina (23) pokes her tongue out at the camera. A colourful collection of helium balloons float on the ceiling, as their white ribbons dangle around the pair’s shoulders. Sharing the shot with her followers, Athina simply captioned it: "24".

Though Ed and Athina’s relationship is going from strength to strength, it's likely in part due to the fact that they keep their romance out of the spotlight. So the glimpse into their life together was a rare treat for fans.

Speaking previously of his love, Ed has revealed little more than the fact she’s “nice” and “really cool”. However, one clear indication that things are going well is the fact that Athina has met Ed’s bestie, Taylor Swift, and they got along great.

"[Taylor] likes her," Ed revealed during an interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest late last year. The birthday boy was inundated with well-wishes on Tuesday from fans and celebrity buddies alike. After sharing his excitement at celebrating his big day with the tweet, “Yay I'm 24,” he later took to the social networking site to thank everyone for their outpouring of love.

“Thanks for all the birthday messages, you are all the best,” he wrote.
