Ed Sheeran Pauses Concert to Announce Sex of Concert Goers’ Baby

Ed Sheeran is helping a family in the most “Perfect” way!

The music superstar, 32, paused his show in Kansas City on Saturday to honor a couple’s wishes that he reveal the sex of their soon-to-be baby. The singer-songwriter then posted a clip of the on-stage moment to Instagram on Saturday — showing the pair’s reaction in the crowd as it all went down.

“My first gender reveal,” Sheeran captioned his post of the sweet reveal.

In another angle of the moment at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, posted on Twitter, the couple — who appeared to be holding a sign — passed an envelope through the crowd to a Sheeran on stage.

“I will go back to singing ‘Perfect’, but I feel like this is the first time, sort of thing” the singer said in his Instagram video, before ramping up the tension by saying “here we go” a few times as he ripped a piece of paper out of the envelope. Sheeran quickly read it and proclaimed, “It’s a girl!”

The crowd let out a delighted cheer as the camera panned to the happy couple — a woman in a white dress and a man in a backwards cap — as they smiled joyfully. The mom-to-be then turned to the future father of her child and gave him a celebratory hug.

Just last week, the singer — whose concerts have been filled with Backstreet Boys karaoke, an appearance from Eminem in Detroit, and more surprises — took a + – = ÷ x (“Mathematics”) Tour pitstop in Chicago to visit the well-known hotdog stand The Wieners Circle.

The location, known for its loud, rude treatment of customers, allowed Sheeran to serve some dogs and even subjected him to harsh comments as part of the bit.

“We’re gonna have Ed Sheeran here at the motherf—-er Wiener’s Circle and I’m gonna teach that wanker how to make a f—ing hot dog,” employees could be heard announcing on Sheeran’s Instagram clip.

“This place is legendary [in] Chicago for serving hot dogs and insulting their customers. I loved it. See you at the stadium tonight x,” Sheeran wrote on Instagram.

“Chicago! We’ve broken the ticket record for tonight,” he also told the crowd, per a tweet from the venue. “This is the largest concert that’s ever been here. There’s 73,000 of you here tonight! Thank you so much for giving me your Saturday night.”
