October 17, 2018
Okay… so we know that you’re probably freaking out just as much as we are that
to be married, but let’s remain calm and sort through the facts. Just last month, we found out that the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer and the Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are engaged SNL comedian were dating and that it was just “casual,” but clearly, these two went from casually dating to spending the rest of their lives together REAL QUICK.
If it weren’t already obvious, Ari and Pete’s romance has been nothing shy of a whirlwind, which makes us wonder when it all began and what exactly led them to committing to one another for the rest of their lives. So, are you ready to see how their relationship progressed over the course of, well, the last month? Look no further because we’ve got their relationship timeline right here:

March 12, 2016: Met at
There's no denying that Ariana and Pete's relationship has been moving along rapidly. However, there may have been sparks between the two a couple of years ago, when Ariana made an appearance on
Saturday Night Live!
Back in 2016, Ariana was invited to the iconic TV show as a guest host, which is where she first met Pete. Just months later, though, she confirmed that she was dating rapper
. Also around that time, Pete began dating Mac Miller Cazzie David, so maybe it just wasn't the right time for these lovebirds to get together.

May 12, 2018: Spotted hanging out at
Over two years after their initial meeting on
SNL, Ari and Pete were spotted hanging out at an SNL afterparty just last month! Interestingly enough, this news came just days after Ari publicly announces her split with Mac, and days before Pete publicly announced his split with Cazzie. Hmm...
Looking back, we should've known things were already somewhat serious between the two. According to reports by
Us Weekly, Ariana was chilling at the afterparty with Pete's mom all night. That's how you know it's real.

May 23, 2018: Fans spotted matching tattoos.
Only a couple of days after
People magazine confirmed that they were an item, fans couldn't believe their eyes when they saw photos of what appeared to be matching tattoos on Ari and Pete's fingers. From the looks of it, the fast-moving couple got matching cloud tattoos, which seemed like a rash decision for a couple that hadn't even been dating for a month.
In hindsight, the tattoos are the least of fans' concerns because, since then, the couple has made even more rash decisions that shook Ari's fanbase to the core. (Yes, we're talking about the engagement).

May 28, 2018: Spent Memorial Day Weekend together.
A mere five days after fans discovered their matching cloud tattoos, things only continued to heat up between Ariana and Pete. We first discovered that they spent
Memorial Day Weekend together when Ariana posted a short clip on her Instagram Stories, which showed them roasting marshmallows by a fire. How cute!
As we all know, cozying up by a fire is one of the most romantic things a couple could do, so we took this as a sign that, although it had only been a few weeks, this couple was really getting serious... and FAST. Still, though, they didn't show their faces in the story, so we couldn't technically say they were Instagram official... at least not at the time.

May 30, 2018: They became Instagram official.
Luckily, fans didn't have to wait long for Ari and Pete to become
official on IG. A short two days after their Memorial Day Weekend Instagram story, Pete took to his own personal Insta to share an adorable photo of the couple dressed in Hogwarts robes from Harry Potter.
While we typically think it's more common for new loves to Instagram together
before getting matching tattoos, to each their own, right?! Plus, if Ariana and Pete are proving anything, it's that they're not following any rules when it comes to their relaysh.

May 31, 2018: They showed off some PDA.
Becoming Instagram official is one thing, but showing off some PDA on social media is a whole other ballgame. Two days following their first-ever Instagram photo on Pete's account, Ariana posted this adorable photo on her own Instagram, which shows Pete giving her
a sweet kiss on the cheek.
NGL, we live for a PDA moment between a relatively new couple. But although we weren't surprised by the photo, it was still a monumental point in their relationship because it once again proved that, after just a few weeks, these two were hot and heavy. Plus, if you're anything like us, it's probably when you officially started to ship this couple.

June 2, 2018: Pete got two new Ariana tattoos.
As if the matching tattoos weren't enough to prove their feelings for one another, Pete got additional
Ariana-inspired tattoos earlier this month. Of course, this made some fans roll their eyes, while others wondered how serious the two could've possibly become over the course of the last several weeks.
Among Pete's newest tattoos are Ari's initials on his thumb, as well as her
Dangerous Woman bunny ears. Clearly, he's not just in love with her, but he's a huge fan of hers as well, and honestly, everyone loves a supportive boyfriend.

June 5, 2018: They joked about having kids.
When Pete posted this photo on his Instagram account on June 5th, the world got its first look at how funny Ariana and Pete truly are together. As you can see, Pete captioned the above photo, "I'm having his kids." When Ari saw it, though, she was sure to hit back with a
In response to the caption, Ari wrote, "I look so good here." Clearly, that's not Ariana, but it is super funny
and sort of alludes to the fact that she's the one who wants to have his babies. At this rate, anything can happen!

June 11, 2018: News of their engagements surfaced.
Although they were only joking about having kids, what's not a joke is that these two
are moving extremely quickly, so maybe kids aren't that far off! On June 11th, news of their engagement surfaced and, like you, we were the most shook we've been since Kylie Jenner's pregnancy.
Multiple news sources have confirmed that the two, who were first spotted hanging out less than one month prior, are engaged to be married. Ari even went on
Twitter, liking a couple of tweets from people who sent them their best wishes. WOW! We can't wait to see what's next for this couple!

October 14, 2018: Engagement called off.
About four months after getting engaged, news broke that Ari and Pete decided to
call off their engagement. Apparently, the death of Mac Miller sent the 25-year-old into an emotional tailspin and she realized she's not ready to fully commit to the SNL star right now.
But while Ariana and Pete are broken up at the moment, they're on good terms with each other and are actually still
"Their engagement is off, but they still plan on spending time together," a source tells
. "It's not like they split and never plan on seeing each other again. They just decided to slow things down." PEOPLE
Will PD and AG eventually make it down the aisle? Honestly, we hope so, otherwise they're going to have to spend a LOT of money to get
all those tattoos removed.
