So, while we're waiting, let's take a look at their relationship timeline so far and find out everything there is to know about their engagement so far...
The pop superstar meets her future husband when she guest presents on Saturday Night Live to promote her single 'Dangerous Woman'.

Fast forward 26 months and the pair are said to be "casually dating" after being spotted at a - wait for it - Saturday Night Live after-party, where Ari supposedly spent most of the night chatting to his mum. Cute, right?

They ARE! Ariana and Pete make it INSTAGRAM OFFICIAL with their first ever couple pic: an adorable embrace with the caption "i thought u into my life 💭 woah ! look at my mind 💡⚡️🙈". We now know these were lyrics to 'Pete Davidson', the song Ari wrote for her bae after just days of being together that is now on her fourth album Sweetener.

Pete gets the first two of many tattoos dedicated to his superstar love. Debuting the singer's trademark bunny mask logo behind his ears and her initials 'AG' on his hand, these are the first of many ink tributes the pair get for each other.
By October 2018, Pete would have at least six tattoos for Ariana - including a very grande-sized 'Grande' on his rib cage, while she had gotten a good few herself, including two matching with her bae, 'pete' on her ring finger and one dedicated to his late father, who died in the 9/11 terrorist attack in 2001.

Rumours that the couple are engaged begin after Ari likes a fan's tweet saying "honest to god our girl is engaged", quickly ensuing chaos among everyone who has a Twitter account and/or a pulse. Could it be? Before they've even had their one month anniversary?
15 June 2018
Yes! The rumours are true! Pete confirmed the engagement himself on Instagram, in a now-deleted post where her $93,000 ring was on show. And if there were any doubts over whether the cute AF couple were absolutely head over heels, the actor made it clear with the uh-dorable caption: "u know what you’d dream it be like ? it’s better than that". Our hearts!

It's moving in time! The newly-engaged couple moved in to their first home together, a $16 million apartment in Manhattan, New York City.
While she took care of the price tag, Pete joked in an interview with GQ about it, saying: "I'm like, 'Thank you for letting me stay here..." and she's like, 'We're getting married!' And I'm like, 'I know, thank you for letting me stay here."

Ariana stops by old friend Zach Sang's studio for an interview with fans to promote her fourth album Sweetener, when she talks in-depth about her relationship and wedding plans.
While revealing that they have started planning the wedding, she said that they won't be sharing the date, location or any of that sweet stuff with the media, to ensure it's a private affair with their families and friends, and nothing more.

Okay, well, that didn't last long. Just a couple of days later, Ariana chatted to Michael Stahan on Good Morning America (with Pete by her side for support, duh) and she dished more than a few deets on their love story.
Speaking about their pending nuptials, she told the host: "It's not soon, soon. It's going to be like, next year." Considering they had only been together for four months at this point, "next year" is still quite soon for most couples, but it's certainly no surprise coming from Pete and Ari.
Perhaps she'll walk down the aisle to Mr. Davidson on their one-year anniversary?
Promotion on Ariana's fourth album sweetener hit the brakes when her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller tragically died, leading the pop superstar to take some indefinite time away from the spotlight.
During this time, the singer adopted a micro pig as a pet with her fiancé Pete, after allegedly finding that they can help with anxiety and be calming pets to help with trauma or grievances.
And before you ask "Will that be Pete's next tattoo?", Mr. Davidson is already one step ahead of everyone as he got a portrait of their beloved pet, who is named Piggy Smallz (the 'z' is crucial), tattooed within days of adopting it with Ari.
14 October 2018 - reported split
Ariana and Pete are reported to have called off their engagement and split up, with claims that the death of Ariana's ex Mac Miller was the 'breaking point'.
Fans spotted that two weeks prior, Pete (kind of) predicted the end of their relationship when he made a joke about her song 'Pete Davidson'.
"You know, I don't even get royalties for that 'Pete Davidson' song? Like, if we break up, and we won't—we will—but we won't. I'm kidding. But like in ten years if God forbid that ever happened, there will be a song called 'Pete Davidson' like playing in speakers at K-Mart and I'll be working there," he said.
What will happen next in Ari and Pete's world? Will they get back together or is it over for good?
