It’s evident that they have a lot of love between them and consider this relationship a new beginning for them too. They really don’t care about the world’s opinion on them. All they care to think about is their love and how happy they are in the presence of each other. Search no further for the details, here is all you need to know about Pete Davidson’s Engagement to Ariana Grande.
However, before we get down to the topic of the day, it would only be fair to take a peek into their relationship history. Here is a quick glance at the songstress and comic actor’s relationship diary.
Pete Davidson’s Dating Timeline
The duo has previously been in fairly famous relationships but had both broken from their last pairings a few weeks or months before they hooked up, initially as casual friends then as flames. Commendably, they are serial monogamists and sure made clean breaks from any previous connections before they got onto a new one.
Pete Davidson who joined the cast of the NBC sketch comedy series as a featured player during the show’s 40th season premiere in September 2014 when he was 20, dated Cazzie David for two years. Cazzie is a writer and actress, and the daughter of comedian and actor, Larry David. Pete owes a lot of gratitude to Cazzie who he credited for helping him break free from drug addiction.
He, however, made a clean break from her before taking the road to dating again. He confirmed his split from Cazzie in mid-May in an interview. Prior to Cazzie, Pete Davidson dated another ‘C’, Girl Code star Carly Aquilino in 2015. It’s only surprising that this time he went for an “A”.
Ariana Grande’s Dating History
For Ariana Grande, she has been involved with a number of celebrities mostly from the music world. She seems to really have a thing for those in her industry starting from her first crush, Justin Timberlake to her last boyfriend. Who wouldn’t want to connect with family anyway? Her dating timeline would include names such as, starting from the most recent:
American rapper Mac Miller from 2016 to 2018. The duo collaborated on Mac’s single My Favorite Part, from his 2016 album, The Divine Feminine.
The Dangerous Woman singer dated her backup dancer, Ricky Alvarez from 2015 to 2016. She also dated rapper Big Sean from August 2014 to April 2015. The couple split due to their conflicting schedules. They worked together on the song Right There from her Yours Truly album, and often performed it together.
Ariana dated the British singer, Nathan Sykes who confirmed their relationship on Twitter in September 2013 but they would later part ways in 2014, though on a mutual ground, citing their reason as a conflict in busy schedules.
She dated the Australian comedian and YouTube personality, Jai Brooks from 2012 to 2014 though with an intermission in 2013. They got back together in 2014 before finally breaking up in July 2014.
The ponytail slayer reportedly dated her backup dancer, Jordan Viscomi in 2011 after her breakup with her puppy love. Ariana defined their split as a horrible, horrendous breakup.
Her first boyfriend was actor and singer, Graham Phillips who she maintained a loving relationship with from 2008 to 2011 when they would break up. Graham was her co-star on the Broadway show 13.
Pete Davidson’s Engagement
The duo may have met at one of Ariana’s performances on SNL, done in 2014 when Pete debuted as a cast member and again in March 2016 when she played host and also a musical guest. The Light is Coming singer reportedly started dating the SNL star in late May 2018. She posted a photo of the two on Instagram captioned, I thought u into my life around that time. Pete complemented with a photo of them in Hogwarts robes on May 30.
Not long after, the news of Pete Davidson’s Engagement hit the internet by storm, even before fans could grapple with the excitement of them dating. The super cute couple got engaged in June 2018.
Before their engagement, Pete and Ariana got matching finger tattoos, a tiny, identical cloud emoji in the same spot on their left hands. Also, Pete added Ariana-inspired inks to his collections: her initials, AG and her signature bunny ears.
After a lot of behind the scene talks and the description of their union as a whirlwind romance and their actions as coming with a lightning speed, Pete confirmed their engagement to Jimmy Fallon on NBC’s Tonight Show, laying the rumors to rest. Pete Davidson said that getting engaged to the pop star felt like he won a contest. It must have really been a contest going by how quick he pulled the sling.
Pete popped the question on his knees with a pear-shaped 3-carat engagement ring from Manhattan-based jeweler Greg Yuna, whom he paid nearly $100,000 in May. Pete Davidson’s engagement serves as an inspiration to other men, one of whom reportedly told him that he (Pete) gave him hope.
Still on Pete Davidson’s Engagement, it was to Ariana Grande like a sweet culmination of events in her life. She titled one of her singles in her new album which is set to release on July 20 Pete to which she got some backlash. Who cares anyway? Ariana had been through a lot – her parents divorced when she was 8 and she had to deal with the emotional trauma that must have greeted her with the event of the Manchester killings following her concert in the city in May 2017. She acknowledges that life is too short to be cryptic (very true) and something as beautiful as the love she is in shouldn’t be slowed down on.
She recently revealed over the Father’s Day weekend that they have moved in together into a $16 million, five-bedroom apartment in New York. At the speed the two are going, their wedding bells could ring anytime soon. What can we do but share in their happiness and wish them all the best?
