Ed Sheeran 'welled up' when a fan proposed at his show

Ed Sheeran "welled up" when a fan proposed to his girlfriend at his show.

The 'Bloodstream' singer was performing his 2014 track 'All of the Stars' at a concert in Austin, Texas last night (06.05.15), when he invited the couple on stage and watched as the man gave a romantic speech to his beloved.

The super fan gushed to his girlfriend: "I'm just thinking out loud here, but y'know I've met a lot of people in my days and to come across someone so amazing, so talented and so beautiful inside and out, I knew there was no way, no way I was going to let her go. I thought to myself, I better grab her and hold on for dear life."

After the man dropped to one knee and she accepted his hand in marriage, the crowd erupted into cheers and Ed returned to congratulate the couple with hugs.

Posting a link to the romantic moment on Twitter following the concert, he wrote: "proposal tonight in austin, i might've welled up, but don't say anything (sic)."

It's not the first time the 24-year-old star - who is currently on tour across north America - has helped someone find love, as he made one teenager's dream come true last year when he accepted a proposal from the terminally ill fan.

The 19-year-old fan, Katie Papworth - who suffered from an aggressive form of brain cancer - presented the singer-songwriter with a painting of a lego house to celebrate his hit of the same name, as well as a ring at his concert in Glasgow, Scotland.

Following the meet and greet, Katie's mum Trish said: "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.'"
