Ed Sheeran left the intense life after the birth of his daughter.
Ed Sheeran was "very reckless" on his "Multiply" album tour and admits they could easily have been "robbed or kidnapped".

The 30-year-old singer has given up his rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle since becoming a father for the first time and having a daughter Lyra, who is now 15 months old.

However, Ed Sheeran recalled that his 2014-2015 tour to promote his "Multiply" album was quite frantic and revealed that he had no security with him to protect him from his extremists.

"I was really reckless on the Multiply tour," he told the Halfcast Podcast.

"I was not safe and I was the only one touring and the whole crew of my tour was about 50 years old and they did not want to go to clubs, so I would finish a concert and go out alone," he described.

"It's very risky. "They could rob me, kidnap me or anything," he added.

Ed Sheeran also admitted that when he became famous, he enjoyed attention as he grew up as a "nerd".

The Briton underwent laser eye surgery and threw away his glasses, while he has adopted a healthier lifestyle.

"I was 22 years old. I had stuttering when I was a kid, I had red hair, very big glasses and I was a bit of a nerd, so the girls were never interested, but never for me. "Then I was successful, I had a laser in my eyes and I lost some weight," he commented.

Ed Sheeran recently revealed that after a day with a strict eight-hour work schedule, he wants to go to bed early, which is far from the old days he had fun.

"The other day my wife was in Los Angeles and we ate Mexican and we were in bed at 8:30 p.m. "It was the perfect night," he said.

"My job now is very structured. I work from 9 to 5. I go to work at 9 in the morning and finish at 5 in the afternoon, whatever happens. Some producers work crazy hours and I tell them, "If you don't show up at 9 in the morning or between 9 and 10 in the morning, I'm gone." "Either we work or we do not work," he stressed.

"I wanted to be present and after six months, I wanted to get organized. "It was really healthy," said Ed Sheeran.
