Rixton’s member – Jake Roche has proposed to his girlfriend of over 1 year Jesy Nelson on stage on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at the Manchester Arena. The lover boy proposed to her at an events venue, because it’s the exact same place where he first met her and fell for her right away. The venue happens to be very special for the both of them. After he went down on one knee, looked up at her with a smile on his face and opened the jewelry box, guess what her reply was? A big Yes!. She was very surprised of course, but very happy at the same time. Guess who showed up all the way from Suffolk to sing the bride to be’s favorite song Tenerife Sea? Ed Sheeran! Upon the Rixton’s lead singer’s request. Jesy happens to be the second member of Little Mix to get engaged. The first one to get engaged was bandmate Perrie Edwards to former One Direction member Zayn Malik.
After popping the question to his girl, the 22 year old English singer and his 24 year old fiancee left the venue and went straight to his mother Coleen Nolan’s house to celebrate. But before making their way to his mama’s house, they both decided to change first. Soon the couple’s friends and their families showed up at the television presenter’s house to congratulate the newly engaged couple including the members of Rixton and Little Mix. Lets go a little backwards to the part when he proposed. The former actor’s mum also happened to be there hiding with her girlfriends, so she could see her son proposed to her soon to be daughter-in-law. According to the 50 year old, Little Mix were doing their soundcheck on the stage, when Ed Sheeran showed up out of no where to perform the song at the Radio festival, she turned around in surprise, but her biggest surprise was when her boo of over 1 year proposed. Jake and Jesy first started dating last year in 2014.
The Rixton’s were also present at the venue to witness the whole thing. As it was the most important day of their lead singer’s life, and they decided not to miss it, and instead to support him.
