Ariana Grande Just Turned 25, And Her Fiancé Pete Davidson Tripled His Online PDA Game On Her Special Day
Just when everyone thought these two couldn't declare their love for each other any more loudly than they already have, Ari and Pete one upped themselves on this special occasion.
She didn't get one, but three shoutouts from her boo on her birthday. The popstar's social media accounts were dominated by greetings from fans and friends alike, but what stood out from the array of well wishes were the short but loving messages from Pete.
He posted two photos of himself with Ariana on his Instagram account, and left a comment on one of her posts promoting her new album, Sweetener. Done in Pete's signature un-subtle style of love professing, the 24-year-old wrote (and virtually yelled), "OMG HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!" on the sultry video post.
Pete's birthday greetings are the latest in this couple's growing list of moments of over-the-top displays of affection, and aptly, mark their one-month anniversary as a couple. (They got engaged in June, a couple of weeks after starting their relationship in May. Even then, Pete didn't hold back from showing Ariana love in all its forms considering the $93,000 rock he purchased for their engagement).
And of course, Ariana didn't let her birthday pass without a nod to her fiancé. Sharing a screenshot of her phone's lock screen on her Instagram Stories, the image showed that she had turned one of Pete's black and white selfies into her wallpaper. Snapped at 11:11 p.m.—the fabled time of day that lets you wish a wish that will likely come true—the photo was captioned with, "I have no wish, I have everything I ever wanted."
Oh, the things that love makes us say and do!
With Pete as the cherry on top of her (birthday) cake, Ariana also celebrated amidst friends and family as they headed out to the Mandarin Oriental in New York City for dinner. She shared highlights of her evening online, giving special attention to the notebook containing personal letters given to her by friends, flowers from fans, and the customized cake and cupcakes designed with Ariana's photos taken at different points in her life.
Ariana's older brother, Frankie, arguably penned one of the most touching greetings on this memorable day, providing a sweet ending to a sweet day.
@arianagrande, 25 years ago today i was with my Nonna and Grandpa in their Florida apartment when we got the news that my mother was in labor and that soon she would be giving birth to my little sister. i remember sitting in the back seat with nonna while grandpa drove us to the hospital... i was filled with excitement and anticipation to welcome our newest addition to the family. we pulled up and i recall jumping out before my grandparents and sprinting into the hospital. i ran up to a nurse and said, “i would like to see my little sister, her name is Ariana.” and the nurse replied, “she just came in” and there, being rolled past me at that very moment as if by fate, was my beautiful little sister. she was right there. i remember seeing her for the first time and promising that i would love her every day for the rest of my life. it has been 25 years to the day and that promise has held true. Ariana, you are my best friend, biggest supporter, and greatest little sister a big brother could ever ask for. thank you for being you & happy happy birthday. can’t wait for the next 25 years and many many more... ~your brother
With friends, family, and fiancé like Ariana's, how can anyone not feel loved on their birthday?
Happy birthday, Ari!
