A STUDENT rummaging through old family photos suddenly wondered if he was related to Ed Sheeran – but it turned out to be a photo of his great aunt.
Eduard Hromkovic, 23, said the face looking back at him in his 60s bears an uncanny resemblance to the 30-year-old singer-songwriter.
He said: “I was immediately like, ‘Holy s*** – literally Ed Sheeran. ”
Eduard, from Copenhagen, has no contact with his wonderful aunt and does not know her name.
He believes she is between 18 and 20 years old and is now in her 80s and lives near Prague.
Aside from his similar name, he doesn’t believe there is any link to Sheeran.
However, the singer has spoken about his Scandinavian ancestry, telling fans in 2019 after taking a DNA test: “I’m six percent Norwegian.”
Eduard added: “I talked to a few members of my family, asking them to see the photo – and everyone had a very similar reaction.
“I immediately shared the photo and it became a legend.
“I doubt my aunt had any idea that Ed was her doppelganger.
“But, considering his music plays quite a lot, I think she’ll know who he is.”
