Ed Sheeran Says ‘I Do’ to a Fan with Brain Cancer
Just in case you needed to find another reason to love Ed Sheeran, iHeartRadio is reporting that right before his concert in Glasgow, Scotland last Thursday (Oct. 30), Ed made a lucky fan's dream come true by accepting her marriage proposal. But wait, it gets better!
According to the iHeartRadio post, Ed met 19-year-old fan, Katie Papworth, backstage before the show. Katie -- who is suffering from a form of brain cancer that has since caused her to lose her sight -- presented him with an engagement ring and, much to her delight, he said yes!
Katie also gave Ed a painting that she made for him when her vision was still intact, and he reportedly praised her talent, going on to sign another painting, writing: “Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife.”
The meeting was made possible by the Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation, who took to Facebook to thank Ed for the wonderful night: “Huge Thanks to Ed Sheeran (a real Superstar) and his fantastic team who made Katies Dream come True Last night and she even proposed and he kept her ring. Xx."
