New York: Singer Harry Styles shocked a lucky One Direction fan dressed as a bride at the band`s concert in Philadelphia by asking her to marry him.

At the gig held Wednesday, Styles popped the question to a fan after he picked her out of the crowd and joked that he didn`t want her efforts to go to waste, reportedly.

Styles said: "I heard there was a girl here in a wedding dress...is there a girl here in a wedding dress?"

"Now I feel bad letting this go to waste, so what`s your name? Preeya? Preeya...will you marry me? There`s been a plot twist! OK...awesome."

The 20-year-old singer then joked that he and his new love were going to wait until everyone had sent them presents to celebrate their engagement before calling it off.

He added: "We`ll take the engagement gifts and then we`ll...OK, awesome. I almost wore my wedding dress. It could`ve been awkward. But that`s a different story."

Styles has been in numerous high-profile relationships with stars, including Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift.
