Pete Davidson is turning into all shades of pink of late.
News of his heated romance with singer Ariana Grande has been doing the rounds for some time now, with saucy pictures of the duo flooding their social media accounts. However, while appearing on a recent episode of 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', the 24-year-old finally broke his silence on the engagement chatter, assuring the couple's fans that as of now, he is indeed taken.
"Now, you know, that you didn't have to get engaged to Ariana Grande to come on our show," Fallon quipped, introducing his Wednesday night guest to the studio audience. Interestingly enough, Davidson responded to the comment by confirming the murmurs about his and Grande's relationship status.
"But I did though," the Saturday Night Alum said, amidst a resounding cheer in the preview clip shared via Twitter.
On being prod further about the honeymoon phase of their relationship, Davidson happily dished how he has been on the cloud nine ever since making it all official with the 'No Tears Left To Cry' singer.
"I feel like I won a contest. I'm f*****g lit, Jimmy. It's so lit," the SNL star told the chat show host.
He said, "It's so funny walking down the street because dudes are walking by and they're like," stopping for a moment, tipping his hat, and adding, "Did you ever see that Derek Jeter commercial where he's retiring and everybody just tips their hats. Some dude came up to me and said, 'Dude, you gave me hope.'"
For weeks now, Grande and her comedian boyfriend have been making cozy appearances together, whether it is during date nights or backstage. With rumor mills on an overdrive about the couple's fast-moving romance, however, the two recently took their relationship to the next level.
Unsurprisingly, all eyes have been on Davidson, who has no qualms about being his pop star girlfriend's "plus-one". But one thing that seems to be bothering the comedian is the sudden spotlight on their personal life. "Why do people care? It's very weird. Like, the President is trying to pardon himself and he's f*****g a porn star. Like, shouldn't we care about that?" Davidson said in the middle of his chat with Fallon.
As happens with any high-profile relationship, the cost of fame happens to be privacy. Regardless, Grande and Davidson seem to be quite happy as they enjoy their time being an engaged couple.
"They looked pretty loved up," an E! News source said of the pair's latest appearance. "They held hands in and out of the car. Pete appeared to help her get out of the car and down the step exiting with those giant heels she had on. Like a gentleman. Very sweet."
