An Ed Sheeran superfan once joked she would marry the singer. Now she is having a baby with the pop star’s doppelganger.
Amanda Baron, 37, used to joke she would marry the Shape Of You star. Now, after dating his doppelganger for a year, they are having their first child together, The Sun reports.
The mum-of-four is hoping the baby will have ginger hair like dad Ty Jones, 27, who works full-time as an Ed-a-like.
Amanda was introduced to Ty through friends who met him at a Sheeran gig.
She said: “I thought my friends were having me on when they said he was a lookalike.
“I always wanted to go out with a ginge, and now I’ve got the best one – apart from the real Ed, obviously.”
Amanda, from Carrington, Greater Manchester, is expecting a baby girl in July.
She said: “We’ve been playing Ed’s songs to her, and we’re both hoping she loves him just as much as we do.”
Ty previously struggled with dating.
He said: “I have to weigh up if [women] are just interested in me because I’m the next best thing to Ed.
“But with Amanda, it’s been amazing. She’s the best.”
