It’s safe to say Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have had a whirlwind romance, but ultimately, they’re proof of the old saying, “when you know, you know.” These two first met when the 25-year-old songstress appeared on Pete’s show Saturday Night Live. While they both instantly felt a connection, it wasn’t until years later when they reconnected — thanks to Scooter Braun telling Pete Ari had a crush on him. And well, the rest is history. But the 24-year-old comedian is still kind of in disbelief over how these two lovebirds ended up falling so head over heels for each other so quickly. He even asked her if she was sure she wanted to date him. And get this — he brought the guys of One Direction into it all.
“Before we started dating, I literally scrolled through a list of really hot guys on the internet and I was like, ‘Are you sure?” I was like here’s all of One Direction. ‘Are you sure?’ OK, cool,” Pete said to Howard Stern.
LOL, he literally wanted to double check that she wanted to date him since you know, being one of the biggest pop stars, she can date whoever she wants. But obviously, it’s Pete who has stolen her heart! And as he went on to explain, they’re just meant to be.
“Timing I feel like is everything and we both were in a similiar sitiuation at the same time,” he said about how when they first started dating, they had both gotten out of long-term relationships. “I just think some people are meant to be together and some aren’t. Even if they are good people or not, some people just aren’t good in relationships together. And I just think we’re supposed to be together.”
And as for Ariana, well she can’t help but agree. When she told Zach Sang all about the proposal, she admitted marriage wasn’t even on her brain before. Sut that all changed once she quickly realized Pete is her soulmate.
“He just asked me, it was really sweet. He didn’t get on a knee or anything, thank God. No, that would’ve been so googly,” she said. “I’m not like a very traditional person so the fact that I’m even getting married is something I never even saw coming I never saw that coming, like I never wanted that. Then I kind of understood it once it was with the right person.”
Ariana recently has been going through a tough time, so knowing she has the love of her life to help her through it all is nothing short of amazing.
