Baby Ed Sheeran Grows Up In “Photograph” Video: Watch
Ed Sheeran debuted his “Photograph” video on Saturday, May 11 — a fitting way to celebrate Mother’s Day the next day.
For this clip, director Emil Nava compiled home video footage of Sheeran growing up. First, he’s a chubby baby learning to walk. Then, he’s a toddler fooling around with the piano. Suddenly, he’s a young musician busking as people walk by.
Watching Sheeran discover music as a kid, and to the x ballad’s patient build, had fans crying.

Sheeran had announced “Photograph” to be his next single in late April, and just as he added a fall leg to this year’s sold-out North American tour. Once his trek did kick off on May 2, with Hanson as an opening act for select dates, sophomore album x went seven times Platinum.
Ed is one of the most successful acts in music right now, though with his new “Photograph” video, he reminds fans of just how far he’s come. Watch up top.
