Ed Sheeran Agrees to 'Marry' Fan Battling With Cancer
British pop star Ed Sheeran made a female fan's dream come true by 'accepting' her marriage proposal before a gig in Scotland.
Brain cancer patient Katie Papworth, 19, got to meet and greet her idol backstage at his Glasgow concert thanks to officials at The Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation, who grants wishes to sick children. Papworth has been battling with the disease for eight years, and just two weeks before the show, she lost her eyesight.
When her dream of meeting Sheeran came true, she presented the red-haired hitmaker with an 'engagement' ring, which was engraved with an infinity symbol. Sheeran happily accepted her 'proposal', and even signed a piece of artwork she had painted prior to losing her sight, with the caption, "Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife."
More photos from their meeting were also shared on The Les Hoey's official Facebook page, along with a post that reads: "Huge Thanks to Ed Sheeran (a real Superstar) and his fantastic team who made Katie's Dream come True Last night and she even proposed and he kept her ring."
