Ed Sheeran wants to name Rixton's Jake Roche's future baby.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker told the 'Wait On Me' singer he'd like to have the honour after helping him to propose to Little Mix star Jesy Nelson live on stage in Manchester two-months-ago and as a thank you for the romantic gesture Jake agreed to his offer, and he has apparently already named the child, but won't say until they are actually expecting.

Jake told The Sun newspaper: ''Ed has asked me if he can name our first child. He came out with it, and I said yes.

''I'm not going to say what he is going to call it until it actually happens.

''I couldn't refuse, as Ed is just remarkable.''

Meanwhile, Jake's mum 'Loose Women' presenter Coleen Nolan recently revealed how her son, 22, had different ideas about how to propose to Jesy.

She shared: ''We were all in on the secret.

''He ran lots of ideas past me but decided in the end to get down on one knee during the soundcheck, and got his mate Ed Sheeran to serenade them.

''Afterwards, we all went back to mine and the table was immediately covered in bridal magazines.''
