Pete Davidson Says He Basically Proposed The Day He Met Ariana Grande
Pete Davidson is madly in love with fiancée Ariana Grande — and he knew it from the very start. The Saturday Night Live star is featured in September’s issue of GQ (on newsstands August 21), where he opened up like never before about his relationship with the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer. He revealed that his and Ariana’s lightning-fast engagement happened even quicker than people realize. So quick that he actually told her he wanted to marry her the day they first met.
“The day I met her, I was like, ‘Hey, I’ll marry you tomorrow,'” he told the magazine. “She was calling my bluff. I sent her a picture [of engagement rings]. I was like, ‘Do you like any of these?’ She was like, ‘Those are my favorite ones,’ and I was like, ‘Sick.'”
Though it’s unclear whether Ariana chose the custom $93,000 diamond ring he gave her when he proposed, it was reported that he purchased the engagement ring back in May – at the start of their whirlwind romance. When you know, you know and for Pete, it was love at first sight. “The universe works in weird ways,” he said. “All I know is that I’m the luckiest guy in the world.”
Ugh, just when we thought we couldn’t love #Grandson (or #Pariana) any more than we already do, Pete goes and proves that his love story with Ariana is what romance novels are made of.
The couple confirmed their engagement in June, just one month after dating rumors first started. Since then, Pete said that he hasn’t grown accustomed to the spotlight or to the constant buzz of paparazzi. “It’s all bullsh*t,” he told the interviewer. “GQ wouldn’t hit me up if I didn’t recently get engaged to a super-famous person. Nobody gives a sh*t, you know what I mean?”
“Up until about two months ago, if someone wrote about me, I saw it,” Pete continued. “Nobody gave a sh*t two months ago, so anytime there was an article, I would obviously see it because my mom would send it to me and be like, ‘Yaaay!'” Oh, how things have changed…

As for their wedding planning, Pete revealed that it hasn’t really started yet. But rest assured, the ceremony is “definitely going to happen, for sure.” For now, they’re “having a really fun time” while “learning how to be adults” in their new $16 million Manhattan apartment.
“She’s really sweet. She’s like, ‘This is our house,’ and I’m like, ‘You’re very nice for saying that. Thank you for letting me stay here,’” Pete joked after revealing that she bought the place. “She’s like, ‘We’re getting married!’ And I’m like, ‘I know, thank you for letting me stay here.’”
The GQ interviewer also noted that Ariana picked Pete up after it was all over and that she greeted him by nuzzling her head in his chest. How freakin’ cute?! Honestly, we hope there are more interviews like this to come because we are totally swooning over these two.
