For a while, it seemed as though you couldn't check the news without learning of yet another whirlwind celebrity engagement. Now, however, things have calmed down and, it seems, those newly engaged couples—Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas—are taking their time planning their respective weddings. Latest to claim she won't be walking down the aisle until 2019 is Grande, who opened up about her and Davidson's fast-moving relationship to Good Morning America's Michael Strahan in a new interview this week.
Though the pair confirmed their engagement only a few weeks after making their relationship Instagram official, Grande told Strahan that she and Davidson are in no rush to tie the knot. "We're gonna take our time to plan it. We've been planning, and my friends and I, my mom, and everybody have been, like, brainstorming and sharing ideas and stuff, and it's really fun," the pop star said. "I work so much. I've never spent this much time or energy planning something personal that feeds my soul so much and my heart."
"I'm going to cry, I'm so excited. It's sick. It's really fun!" she continued, but clarified that the wedding won't be "soon soon." "It's gonna be, like, next year," she said.
Grande also explained to Strahan how she knew the Saturday Night Live star was the person with whom she wanted to spend the rest of her life. "I mean, it's just, like, a feeling, you know? That's so cheesy. People are always like, 'When you know, you know,' and you're like, 'Oh, yeah, whatever, OK. Yeah, OK.'" But it's true: When Strahan dug deeper, asking how Grande knew Davidson was her "soulmate," as she refers to him on the song on her new album Sweetener that's named after him, she said, "You just feel it, you know?
He just ticks every box and just gets better every day, and I'm very grateful for him. Life is beautiful."
