Us regular mortals fangirling over our favorite celebrities is nothing new, but things get all the more adorable when celebrities fangirl over other celebrities on camera.

Latin American boy band CNCO had a massive fanboy moment over Ed Sheeran while speaking with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW).

The boyband, who had come together for the first time during the first season of the reality show 'La Banda,' is composed of Joel Pimentel, Richard Camacho, Erick Brian Colón, Christopher Vélez, and Zabdiel De Jesús.

MEAWW had the chance to catch up with the group as they attended Kiis FM iHeartRadio's Wango Tango. In a casual chat, they spilled about their encounter with the 28-year-old 'Shape of You' hitmaker.

Pimentel, 19, opened up about his highlight of the event. "It actually happened on the carpet for iHeartRadio," the 19-year-old band member said about his craziest fanboy moment so far. We were doing an interview [...] and I see Ed Sheeran walk by, so I completely lose focus in the interview. You can see it too, I'm like... Oh my god, I'm fanboying. I say 'I love you, Ed Sheeran!"

Worry not, Pimentel. Well, that's one moment we can all relate to. 

 



 

Speaking of fans, band-member de Jesús, 22, also mentioned just how grateful they are about all the love and support their fanbase has shown them. "I think we dreamed about it, but never expected the whole stuff. So we're super, super glad for all the support and all the love we received from the fans. So we're super grateful."

The band had won a five-year recording contract with Sony Music Latin after they became the winning competitors of the first season of 'La Banda'.

The band has also toured with Ricky Martin and their singles 'Tan Fácil' and 'Quisiera' both charted following their debut.

Their first album Primera Cita had released on August 26, 2016 and it included the hit 'Reggaetón Lento' (Bailemos).

They released their sophomore self-titled album on April 6, 2018 and both the records debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Latin Albums and the top 40 on the Billboard 200.
