Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seabon have a date night every week, and the one rule they must follow is that they cannot talk about their baby. 

The couple welcomed their first child, Lyra, last year ago, and due to the pressures of parenthood, they've made a pact to go out once a week to spend time with each other and not talk about their daughter. 

Appearing on the Rebecca Judd Show on Apple Music, the star revealed that they have to talk about each other and catch up on their weekly dates "no matter who's in town or who wants to see us," he said. 

He added that it's easy to forget yourself since parenting is a 24/7 responsibility which is why he's so keen on a night off. 

"As a parent, you spend so much time discussing being a parent that you kind of forget who you were before. So we have one night a week where we are who we were before".
