In Pete Davidson's eyes, Ariana Grande and him are basically married.

The comedian and singer made their official red carpet debut and in typical Petiana fashion, Pete made a subtle reference to their engagement. Eagle-eyed fans spotted the Saturday Night Live star sporting a beaded bracelet with the initials "AGD," which will be Ariana's initials once she and Pete tie the knot. He paired the accessory with a white pullover and black jeans, while Ariana wore an eye-catching metallic dress and knee-high boots.

Grande's boyfriend will be cheering on the singer from the audience of the Radio City Music Hall when she performs a single from her newly-released album, Sweetener. Not to forget, the 25-year-old is nominated for five awards tonight, including Video of the Year.

Davidson's tribute to his fiance is just one of the many ways the couple have proved their commitment to one another. From the start of their whirlwind romance, the singer and comedian have shown off matching tattoos, named songs after each other, gifted family heirlooms and made grand statements about the strength of their love. Most recently, the SNL star said he knew he was going to marry the pop star the day they met. He told GQ, "The day I met her, I was like, 'Hey, I'll marry you tomorrow.'"

And he made good on his claims, since just weeks after dating, he proposed to the singer. And, obviously, she said yes! They now live together in their New York City apartment and, according to Pete, they're "having a really fun time."

Couple goals!
