If Taylor Swift is the reigning pop sweetheart in America, then Ed Sheeran is hands down her male equivalent! The UK crooner proved just why he’s a musical knight in shining armor last night (July 19), when he helped friend Jake Roche (of boy band Rixton) propose to his longtime girlfriend — Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson.

The event took place at Manchester Arena (Sheeran traveled five hours to get there), and Roche posted a photo capturing the super-romantic moment with the caption: “A year ago today I met her at Manchester Arena, so it was only right, with a little help from my friend, that this happened. Best day of my life.” Cue the awws!

In an interview with Key 103, Nelson happily described the moment. “To be honest, it was all a bit of a blur. I thought we’d finished sound check and then lo and behold, old Ed walks on,” she said. “I had my back turned to him and the girls were like, ‘Jess, Jess’ and then I turned around and he sang mine and Jake’s song, ‘Tenerife Sea.’ And as soon as he sang that, I just balled.”
