Music 04/09/2017

Ed Sheeran is known for getting the crowd involved when he performs shows but at his last one he did something a little bit different.

He noticed a baby in the crowd and was told by the parents that the baby's middle name was Sheeran.

"Her middle name is Sheeran," The baby's mother shouted from the crowd.

Ed then said to the parents: “I’ve never seen a baby this calm at a concert. Just chilling there for the whole thing and you guys have been loud, you’re singing and she’s just kinda like…I love babies.”

After meeting the family, Ed asked the audience to sing along to his next song 'Dive', which he dedicated to her.

“I want you to be as loud as you can,” he said. “‘Cause she’s gonna be chill.”

The couple spoke to E! News after the concert, mentioning that Ed played a big role in Cooper’s life, even before she was born. The couple suffered from infertility, and played Ed Sheeran's music during procedures of intrauterine insemination (IUI).

The baby's full name is Cooper Sheeran Smith, named after the singer.
