First it was Perrie Edwards, and now another Little Mix member has announced that she’s got a ring on it. Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson announced just tonight that herself and Rixton band member Jake Roche are engaged. Twenty two-year-old Jake popped the question on stage to a stunned Nelson at Manchester Arena on Sunday with a little help from his friend, none other than Ed Sheeran. Now that’s one way to do it!
He announced the news via instagram, with this lovely post:
The proposal venue of choice was a special one for Roche as this is where he met Nelson. Aww! “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,” he wrote on his social media page. It seems to be a bit of a whirlwind romance if the pair only met a year ago, but we wish them every happiness. We wonder which Little Mix member will make it down the aisle first? Roche took to Twitter afterwards to thank pal Ed for all his help with the very romantic proposal.
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
