Ed Sheeran has accepted an emotional marriage “proposal” from a critically ill teenage fan.
The chart topper was visibly moved by his meeting with Katie who has an aggressive form of brain cancer. The teenager has had the disease for eight years and just two weeks ago, she lost her sight to it.
On Thursday night, wearing her Mrs Ed Sheeran T-shirt, Katie met her idol minutes before he hit the stage at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro. He accepted a ring she gave him when she asked if she could be Mrs Sheeran.
Katie Papworth, from Glasgow also presented the singer with a picture she painted of a Lego house, in tribute to one of his hits and Ed signed it writing “Dear Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife.”
Katie’s mum Trish told The Mirror : “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.
“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.”
