There is no doubt that Ed Sheeran is just about the nicest guy in the music industry, and he has proven it again by making the wish of a very ill fan come true. The 23-year-old chart topper met 19-year-old brain cancer sufferer Katie Papworth before his gig in Glasgow last Thursday and accepted her marriage proposal.

Papworth, who has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for eight years and has recently lost her sight due to the illness, presented Sheeran with an engagement ring with an infinity symbol engraved on it. She also gave the Don’t singer two paintings she drew right before she lost her eyesight. Sheeran signed one of them with, “Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife.”

After accepting her proposal, Sheeran proudly showed off the ring as he posed for a picture with Papworth. The picture was later posted on Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation’s Facebook page with the caption: “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.”
