Ed Sheeran really knows the way to a lady’s heart! The ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer is said to be dating Nicole Scherzinger and you’ll never believe the down-to-earth (and totally delicious!) way he managed to woo her!
Ed Sheeran, 24, may have the voice of an angel, but as it turns out it was his laid-back taste in food that actually helped him win over Nicole Scherzinger, 37. That’s right, the British crooner finally managed to capture the heart of the gorgeous Pussycat Dolls singer by wooing her with the two things that every woman really wants at the end of the day: cheap pizza and vodka!
Alright, so he may not exactly be the traditional Prince Charming type, but it sounds like Ed’s awesome, laid-back vibes were exactly what Nicole was looking when he surprised her with a low-key date following his sold-out show at Wembley Stadium back in July 2015. “Ed’s a man simple pleasures,” a source told Heat magazine. “After the gig, he ordered Pizza Express takeaway for him and Nicole and they drank supermarket brand vodka mixed with Fruit And Barley squash. It doesn’t sound like much but she loved it.”
No wonder he won her over — that’s basically our perfect date night scenario. And while we can’t be certain that this is how it all really went down — HollywoodLife.com has since reached out for comment from their reps — we like to imagine that Nicole appreciated the sweet gesture. The two have reportedly been friends for a long time, and recently took their relationship out of the friends zone after Nicole split with Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton, 30, back in Feb. 2015, The Sun reports. To nurse her heartbreak following her breakup with the racing star, Nicole found solace in Ed’s songs, and their connection blossomed. Since then, Ed has had Nicole backstage at one his shows and whisked her off to his hometown of Suffolk, where they had a drink at his local pub. How cute!
“As far as he’s concerned they were in the early stages of dating and he’s been open about it with close friends and colleagues,” a source told the outlet. “They’re extremely close. Nicole says he is the male version of her.” Sounds like a match made in pizza heaven to us!
