The song tells a moving story, which initially appears to be about the excitement of approaching fatherhood but ends with a twist when it becomes a tragic tale about a friend's miscarriage.
The song's music video finds Ed Sheeran sitting in a hospital waiting room and was shot all in one take. Look out for a cameo appearance by actor Marcquelle Ward, who is known for playing BB in Britannia High as well as Mitch in several Coronation Street episodes. He is the patient that gets helped onto the hospital bed at 1:49.
Ed himself has said that this song is based on a friend of his losing her child in the fifth month of pregnancy. According to some sources, her name is Katie.
