Cherry could only seek treatment after the baby was born and the pair are now looking to put the traumatic experience behind them.

An insider said: “It’s been an incredibly tough time for Cherry and Ed.

“The tumour came as a huge shock, and the fact they couldn’t operate straight away was hugely concerning and scary.

“But after Jupiter arrived safely, Cherry has now received the treatment needed and is recovering well. They both hope it will be a much better 2023.”

The 32-year-old’s latest record, scheduled for release on May 5, is set to be his most personal following his wife’s health scare plus the shock death of close friend Jamal Edwards.

Writing to fans on Instagram, Ed explained how he replaced a “decade’s worth of material” for Subtract with new songs he wrote as therapy for the most testing time of his life.

He said: “I had been working on Subtract for a decade, trying to sculpt the perfect acoustic album, writing and recording hundreds of songs with a clear vision of what I thought it should be.

“Then at the start of 2022, a series of events changed my life, my mental health and ultimately the way I viewed music and art.

He continued: “I wrote without thought of what the songs would be, I just wrote whatever tumbled out.

“And in just over a week, I replaced a decade’s worth of work with my deepest darkest thoughts.

“Within the space of a month, my pregnant wife got told she had a tumour, with no route to treatment until after the birth.”

He added: “My best friend Jamal, a brother to me, died suddenly and I found myself standing in court defending my integrity and career as a songwriter.

“I was spiralling through fear, depression and anxiety.”

Explaining how what happened over the past year impacted his mental health, he added: “I felt like I was drowning, head below the surface, looking up but not being able to break through for air.

“As an artist, I didn’t feel like I could credibly put a body of work into the world that didn’t accurately represent where I am and how I need to express myself at this point in my life.

“This album is purely that. It’s opening the trapdoor into my soul.

“For the first time I’m not trying to craft an album people will like, I’m merely putting something out that’s honest and true to where I am in my adult life. This is last February’s diary entry and my way of making sense of it. This is Subtract.”
