The 24-year-old singer/songwriter had a very sweet surprise for Australian newlyweds Matt and Kya, when he recently surprised them at their wedding reception in Sydney. Ed popped in to serenade the couple during their first dance, singing his super-romantic hit “Thinking Out Loud.”
First, the hosts asked Matt and Kya to come in for a radio segment where Matt explained their struggles, saying that Kya’s mother had taken her own life a few years earlier.
When KIIS 1065’s Kyle & Jackie O surprised struggling young Sydney couple Kya and Matt Debono by giving them a dream wedding, worth $80,000, the couple thought things couldn’t get any better.

Kyle and Jackie O received an email from Matt explaining that his dream was to surprise the love of his life, and mother of two, with the wedding she was planning but had to postpone indefinitely.
Money had always been tight for the young family from Sydney’s Revesby, with Matt unemployed, but after the sudden death of Kya’s mother in 2012, it looked as though their plans for a small wedding with family and friends may never happen.

And before leaving the reception, he left the couple with these hilarious parting words.
“Have a good wedding — make those babies tonight.”
