Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran’s new baby faces a life of disappointment supporting Ipswich Town Football Club, it has emerged.
Little Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran, who Ed announced to the world today, will be forced to endure endless dull 0-0 matches and defeats at Portman Road.
Ed and his wife Cherry Seaborn are big fans of the Tractor Boys and are regularly seen supporting the team while wearing the blue kit.
Now poor Lyra seems destined to support the club as well.
Child psychologist Lorraine Fisher, 34, explained: “Never mind her weird name. Lyra Antarctica is perfectly normal and she will grow up all the better for it.
“But the prospect of having to follow Ipswich is a bit extreme.
“The poor thing could be in for a lifetime of misery.”
Ipswich Town, once one of Europe’s best teams, are currently languishing in League One, the third tier of English football.
