The ‘Shivers’ singer, who is married to Cherry Seaborn, with whom he has a one-year-old daughter, made the admission on Dutch podcast Man, Man, Man.
Speaking in an interview last month, the star also explained that he has a “big feminine side” and loves musical theatre.
“I definitely have a big feminine side”
“I’m not a hugely masculine person. I have a definite feminine side, to the point that when I was a kid I thought I was gay for a bit,” the 30-year-old explained.
“I definitely have a big feminine side. I love musical theatre, I love pop music, I love Britney Spears.”
The star furthermore added: “I am not a car guy. I like a nice car, but I’m not a car guy.”
Sheeran, also known for tracks like ‘South of the Border’ and ‘Beautiful People’, then said: “My wife is super pro-women, femininity. So as soon as we started dating, my life shifted.”
