The Huffington Post reports that Ed Sheeran might have a stranglehold on pretty much every chart on the planet, but that could change in the not-too-distant future, according to the singer.
The 26-year-old has hinted he might turn his back on music for good once he has children.
And that could happen sooner rather than later after it was revealed last weekend that the singer has gotten engaged to his long-term girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn.
He told the Daily Star: “My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids.
“I am going to be like, ‘I do not really care anymore as I have another life to take care of’.
“It is totally understandable because you have children and your ambition shifts to be like, ‘I want to be a good father’.”
The Shape Of You singer previously revealed he’d love to start a family before he hits his thirties.
Ed and Cherry announced their engagement on Instagram on Jan 21.

According to CNN, Sir Elton John is saying goodbye to life on the road.
The music icon announced at a press event on Wednesday that his next world tour will be his last. The three-year tour will start in September, John told CNN's Anderson Cooper in a sit-down chat that was live-streamed around the world.
"I've been touring since I was 17 with various bands," John said. "I thought the time is right to say thank you to all my fans and say goodbye."
John said his priorities changed when he and his husband, David Furnish, had children.
"We had children and had changed our lives and in 2015 we sat down with their school schedule and we said I'm going to miss too much of this," he told Cooper.
John said on Wednesday that he decided in 2015 that this would be his last tour, telling Cooper, "I can't go on forever." The tour is called "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" but this isn't farewell forever. John said he still wants to make more albums.
John, 70, is also scheduled to perform a duet with American pop singer Miley Cyrus, 25, at the Grammy Awards this weekend at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
