As if we needed any more reasons to fall in love with Ed Sheeran… The singer recently accepted a proposal to ‘marry’ teenage superfan Katie Papworth backstage at one of his Glasgow concerts this week.

Katie is suffering from an aggressive form of cancer with saw her lose her sight a fortnight ago, the Mirror reports. 

The 19-year-old met her idol backstage on Thursday and offered him a ring with an eternity sign on it as well as a personal drawing inspired by his song Lego House. 


The British singer signed the artwork with “Dear Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife”. 

“Katie took the picture of the lego house she’d made and gave Ed a ring with an infinity symbol. Ed loved her artwork and asked if he could keep it for his wall,” Trish’s mum told The Mirror.

“When she presented the ring he smiled and said, ‘I suppose I should say yes. OK.’

“He made it really special for her and she’s since said she needs to think about bridesmaids.”

Katie said: “We haven’t set the date yet, but it’s not official because we haven’t been in a church.”
