In the United States, a 5-year-old fan of Ed Sheeran didn’t hesitate to invite the star to his birthday. On the other hand, the singer had a wonderful surprise in store for him.
Ren is a 5-year-old American boy who idolizes Ed Sheeran. He even decided to invite the singer to his birthday party.
Recently, Ren celebrated his sixth birthday and had asked his mother, Alexandra Lamoreaux, to organize an “Ed Sheeran” themed party with a water slide and cupcakes featuring the pop star’s likeness.
But that’s not all! Ren was convinced that the “Shape of You” singer would attend his party and even gift him a microphone. Little did he know that the superstar had planned his own surprise.
Not expecting to hear from the singer, Alexandra designed creative invitations in the form of concert tickets with a photo of Ed Sheeran performing on stage.
Quickly, many internet users rushed to tag the British star in the comments section to alert him of Ren’s birthday wish. One thing is for sure: this mobilization bore fruit.
Ed Sheeran gives a gift to his fan.
Indeed, Ren received the most beautiful gift from his idol, as shown in a video posted on Alexandra’s TikTok page. In the footage, we see the young boy opening a huge blue package with the label that reads, “To Ren, from Ed.”

This peculiar package was, in fact, a surprise gift sent by Ed Sheeran himself! The package included a t-shirt, a signed CD, a toy, a microphone, and a guitar. The pop star also sent him an adorable letter:
“Ren, sorry I couldn’t make it to your birthday party, I hope it was fantastic. Here’s a notepad and a guitar so you can start writing songs like me,” wrote the musician.
Not surprisingly, the post quickly went viral. In total, the video garnered 8.6 million views, thousands of likes, and hundreds of comments.
