Ariana Grande’s new boyfriend wooed her on Saturday Night Live two years ago
Ariana Grande has gone Instagram official with her new boyfriend Pete Davidson.
The new relationship comes just weeks after the 24-year-old singer split from her boyfriend of nearly two years Mac Miller.
So who is her new beau and when did they get together?
Pete Davidson, 24, is an American comedian best known for being a cast member on Saturday Night Live.
He also appeared in Amy Schumer’s 2015 film Trainwreck.
The pair are said to have met on the set of SNL when Ariana guest-hosted the show back in 2016.
Davidson had a difficult childhood following the loss of his dear father.
He was just seven years old when his dad – a New York City firefighter – died in service during the September 11 terrorist attack.
He was last seen running up the stairs of the World Trade Center just before it collapsed.
Davidson has admitted the loss was "overwhelming" and had a profound impact on his childhood.
The trauma meant he acted out in school and at one point he ripped his hair out until he was bald.
He first tried stand-up comedy for a dare when he was just 16 and went on to land roles on MTV shows Failosophy, PDA and Moms and Guy Code.
After stand-up appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a guest role in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, at 20 Davidson was the youngest person to ever join the cast of SNL.
The New York-based comedian also recently split from his longtime girlfriend Cazzie David.
“We’re not together anymore,” he said in an interview.
“Very talented girl, she’ll be great and she’ll be fine. Yeah, I think she’ll be okay.”
On Wednesday, Pete uploaded a shot of himself enjoying a fun day at Harry Potter World with new girlfriend Ariana while both sporting branded black robes and jumpers.
Comedian Pete is wearing a grey Gryffindor jumper, while Ariana is sporting a Slytherin one.
A smitten Pete sweetly captioned the shot: "The chamber of secrets has been opened …"
The singer wrote underneath the snap: "U tryna slytherin (I’m deleting my account now)."
