Jake Roche proposed to girlfriend Jessy Nelson, singer of the popular English girl band Little Mix.
The 22-year-old singer popped the question to his ladylove at a concert in Manchester Arena on Sunday with the help of his friend and band member Ed Sheeran.
“Best Day of My Life” he exclaimed on the Instagram, “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.” The singer announced the happy news with a loving picture of the cute couple on Instagram.
Jake son of popular television personalities Shane Richie and Coleen Nolan got down on one knee the traditional way, while his friend and band member Ed Sheeran performed Tenerife Sea, which happens to be the favorite song of the beautiful couple.
Jessy, who was overwhelmed with emotions immediately said yes to Jake’s proposal. She explained in an interview with Little Mix on Key 103 radio,”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 [Sheeran] walks on,” she explained. “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.”
She continued: “We’ve spoken about [marriage] but I never thought that it was going to happen, not today! It sounds so strange but it felt like the feeling of when we won The X Factor.”
The Rixton front man later also thanked his friend and band member Ed on Twitter for making taking the initiative and making his day super special for them.
“Travelled 5 hours to sing our favourite song on his day off. I will never ever be able to repay you. Love you pal. @edsheeran,” This was the caption of one of the photos that Jake posted on Instagram of the special moment.
