Ed Sheeran came face-to-face – sadly, not IRL – with his adorable little doppelgänger, Isla Walton.
During an appearance on British show Good Morning Britain this week, presenter Richard Arnold showed Ed the photo of Isla that went viral, saying, “This little lady is breaking hearts around the world. You’ve seen this, right?”
“She’s not mine,” Ed joked. “She’s not mine! It’s mad the kind of things that go viral.”
Richard used the opportunity to ask Ed about his future plans for kids. “I don’t want to be touring when I have kids,” Ed, who’s 26, explained. “I want to be like nipping out every now and then and being able to actually be a father so yeah, I think I would definitely love kids.”
“I would definitely love all the kids in the world but I don’t want to have them right now,” he added.
He better check about having “all the kids in the world” with his girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, who he’s been dating since September 2015.
ORIGINAL STORY 20/03/17:
Out of all the Ed Sheeran lookalikes out there, the internet has decided this two-year-old toddler looks like the singer so much that she is more Ed Sheeran than the real Ed Sheeran.
Because look at her.
Little Isla Walton from Exeter became a viral superstar over the weekend this image of her looking like the spitting image of Ed circulated online.
Isla’s aunt, Stacey Walton, told The Sun that strangers had pointed out the resemblance many times before. “Everyone comments saying how she’s a mini Ed, and I call her baby Sheeran,” Stacey said. “She loves his music, tries to sing along to the words and has a dance.”
It’s not just the red hair and cute, chubby cheeks – Isla’s expressions, as seen in other photos shared by Stacey with The Sun, are really similar to Ed’s, too.
While Isla may not be Ed’s only doppelgänger – he casts people who look like him in his music videos, most famously Rupert Grint in “Lego House” – she is definitely the most adorable. And yep, we’re calling it, she is the best one.
Now, how do we get Isla to meet Ed?
