The the delight of millions of fans, Ariana Grande is now engaged to Pete Davidson. It happened fast, but sometimes, love is like that.
Though we’ve already seen Ariana’s engagement ring, Pete has now washed away any lingering doubts by saying it out loud.
Folks, Pete cannot contain his enthusiasm. Can you blame him. He feels like he won the lottery.
On The Tongight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Pete Davidson and Robert Pattinson were the guests.
Ariana is a beloved guest on Fallon’s show, and as you can imagine, he definitely brought up her name when speaking to Pete.
Jimmy Fallon says: “Now, you know that you didn’t have to get engaged to Ariana Grande to come on our show.”
Pete’s boyish excitement cannot be contained.
“But I did, though!” Pete says.
The audience replies with cheers and applause.
After Fallon offers his congratulations, Pete offers a very apt description of the situation.
“I feel like I won a contest.,” Pete says. “So sick.”
Ariana isn’t just an extremely talented singer, an actress, an activist, a gay icon, and a beloved social media personality.
She’s also just incredibly hot, and Pete seems truly head-over-heels.
Fallon asks: “How are you handling it all right now?”
Pete replies: “It’s f–king lit, Jimmy.”
We would imagine so.
“It’s so funny,” Pete shares. “Walking down the street.”
Keep in mind that Pete has been famous for years because he is a cast member of Saturday Night Live.
In fact, debates over whether he or Colin Jost is the most attractive cast member at the moment are not uncommon on social media or among friends.
But now, when he is recognized, the reactions that he elicits are a little different.
“It’s so funny,” Pete says. “Because dudes are walking by, and they’re like:” Pete mimes tipping a hat in a casual salute or a gesture of respect.
“Some dude came up to me,” Pete continues. “And said: ‘yo, man, you gave me hope.'”
The implication being that Pete has managed to get engaged to a girl out of his league — to one of the most attractive women on the planet — without being more famous than she is or richer than her.
Pete admits that he started to feel a little unsulted, saying: “And I didn’t know I was that ugly! Jesus.”
Pete is, of course, very much not ugly.
But he is still counting his blessings.
“Yeah,” Pete admits. “I’m a lucky motherf–ker.”
That’s true! But so is Ariana. Anyone who finds any sort of love in this globe of nightmares we all inhabit is very fortunate!
(Also, Pete sells himself short — literally. The guy is 6-foot-3, which makes him a whopping 15 inches taller than Ariana. We are very much rooting for them even though they will have to get creative to take decent photos)
Pete’s excitement over his engagement to Ariana is not limited to late night talk shows.
On Thursday, he shared the image of Ariana Grande arching her back in the grass while wearing a less-than-huge amount of clothing.
(Fans will of course recognize this as part of a dance that she has practiced and performed on social media before)
“What the actual f–k,” Pete writes, showing his desbelief in how beautiful his fiancee is.
He follows up that photo with a heart eyes emoji.
Pete has also, of course, already gotten two tattoos in Ariana’s honor. One of her bunny eared mask, and another of her initials.
Go big or go home.
Arianators have celebrated this welcome news. Naturally, her fans are happy when she is happy.
Many are relieved to see that she is no longer in a toxic relationship with someone whose personal substance abuse issues make him a danger to himself and others.
(Though Pete was never a danger, per se, he has experienced and overcome a mild substance abuse issue and has been outspoken about his mental health)
Some critics have accused Pete of “robbing the cradle,” which is absurd. Age and height aren’t synonyms, or Ariana would be feeling nervous about the sixth grade.
They’re both about the same age, but Ariana, who turns 25 next week, is a few months older than Pete.
Pete will not turn 25 until September.
