So sad.

Ed Sheeran "married" a terminally ill superfan, Katie Papworth, last week but unfortunately she passed away this morning.

Our favorite red head admitted that he was "devastated" to hear about her passing:

So devastated to hear Katie has passed away. Prayers are with her family.
— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) November 7, 2014

When Ed accepted Katie's proposal last week, he signed her painting of a LEGO house with a lovely note:

"Dear Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife."

Ed is just the sweetest.

According to Katie's mom, the whole meeting was very special:

"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. He made it really special for her and she's since said she needs to think about bridesmaids."

Katie had fought against the brain cancer that she had been battling for 8 years. Our hearts go out to her family and loved ones during this tough time.

    I swear if there's a heaven, Ed is definitely getting in. This is the second terminally ill fan he done something extremely kind for. Ed is the best and may katie rest in peace.

    Re: MichJB – no offense, but that's not the point. He did something nice and it's still heartbreaking that she past even though everyone knew it was going to happen eventually.

    I remember Justin Bieber did something similar a few years ago and the same thing happened when I read this…I cried. The special population is marginalized when they are the real heroes as every day is a huge challenge . Thank you Justin and Ed. as our hearts burst when u give the gift of your time and energy to the medically fragile and special needs population !!!
