Need another reason to love Ed Sheeran? Well, we got one for you.

Our favorite ginger singer proved he's quite THE man when he surprised an ill fan in the hospital, after finding out she couldn't make it to his show. The adorable moment went down on her 20th birthday at a hospital in New Zealand.

Jess Knight, who was recently diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, was too weak to make to Ed's show, so she issued a heartwarming plea online begging him to visit her. Of course, he did...Ed paid a visit to her, where she was receiving treatment.

"It was so unreal," Jess told TVNZ. "He was just a genuinely nice guy."

She has since gone into remission and her mother is already busy planning a way to make her next birthday even better.

"My life has been thrown upside down...I have just had a bone marrow transplant to lower my chances of getting a relapse. So this is the final stage of my treatment," she revealed.

As for how Ed found out about her? Her BFF Anna Strong set up a Facebook event to raise awareness.

"We see Ed do amazing stuff for his fans all the time and the power of messages going viral these days is so crazy," Anna explained. "So why not try."

Using the hashtag #KiaOraEdPlsVisitJess, the girls managed to get what they wanted. Coolest friends ever? We think so. We're sure that special meeting beat the concert, anyway!
