While many of us are still trying to wrap our heads around the idea of an engagement between Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson and whether or not it’s actually for real, they are here to reassure us all that, yes, it is and yes, they are. Even though the timeline is a little … off. They may have only started dating a month ago but around that same time Pete purchased a giant ring from a jeweller. Because when you know, you know. Right?
“Pete called me at the end of May and said, ‘Look, I’m getting a ring. This is what I want.’ And I told him that I had the right ring for him,” recalled jeweler Greg Yuna to E! News. “He didn’t tell me who it was for but told me to keep it a secret. He didn’t tell me anything about it.”
Yuna said it took two weeks to make the pear-shaped ring, which cost Davidson $93,000. Hmm, guess it’s not a secret anymore. Especially considering by June 2, Grande was seen wearing it while performing in concert.
Then a couple days after that, Pete was showing off two new tattoos he got, inspired by his new girlfriend/fiancée: a black bunny mask that Ariana sports on the cover of her new album, as well as her initials.
But turns out that’s not the only tattoo he got. Davidson covered his forearm tattoo of ex-girlfriend Cazzie David‘s face with what Us Weekly described as a larger version of a design he sports on his left arm. He probably got all the tattoos done in the same session but we were all too distracted by the news of their relationship to notice. Man, we can’t keep up with this guy!
OK, seriously, WHAT IS HAPPENING?? Both Ariana and Pete ended fairly long relationships at the end of May and began dating days (hours?) later. Hmm, overlap much? Pete then got her an engagement ring around the same time, which she’s been seen wearing, so she clearly accepted the proposal, and they just celebrated their impending marriage with family and friends at Disneyland. It’s … a lot to take in.
This all seems way too fast, too intense, too obsessive — but who are we to judge? There’s something exciting about young, new love and clearly Ariana and Pete are caught up in that euphoria. We don’t know if it’s going to last or for how long or if they’re going to crash and burn and there’s going to be more tattoo cover-ups to be done, but perhaps they’re just living — and loving — in the moment and it’s one of those things where it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Whatever the case, we wish them well.
