Pete Davidson Reveals the Super Low-Key Way He Proposed to Ariana Grande
Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande’s relationship has been characterized by big and bold displays of affection, but when it came to Davidson’s proposal, he went for something surprisingly low-key.
“I didn’t want to do something corny,” Davidson told Variety of how he popped the question to his now-fiancée. “We were in bed hanging, after watching a movie. I was like, ‘Will you marry me?’ It was really dope.”
The Saturday Night Live star and the Sweetener singer got engaged in June after only a few weeks of dating. While Grande recently admitted that she predicted she would marry her husband-to-be two years before they ever dated, Davidson said that he never planned to get married until Grande came along.
“I never thought I’d meet anyone like her,” he told Variety. “I can’t even put into words how great of a person she is. I could cry. She’s the f***ing coolest, hottest, nicest person I’ve ever met. … I’m f***ing living the goddamn dream. I feel like I’m living in a fantasyland.”
Grande and Davidson have been candid about their feelings for each other since shortly after they were first rumored to be dating in May. Davidson previously told Jimmy Fallon that he felt like he won a contest, while Grande has taken to social media on numerous occasions to post sweet notes such as, “I thought u into my life,” about her fiancé.
Despite their obvious affection for one another, Davidson admitted to Variety that he felt a little unsure over what Grande’s answer to his proposal would be. “I’m still convinced she’s blind or hit her head really hard,” he said, reportedly laughing. “Something is going to happen, and she’s going to be like, ‘What the f**k is this thing doing around?’ For right now, it’s rocking.”

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
