Following in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian West and Jada Pinkett-Smith, pop singer Ariana Grande says she will hyphenate her name when she marries Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.

The soon-to-be Ariana Grande-Davidson revealed her plans to Ebro Darden of Apple Music's Beats 1, according to the Daily Mail, adding that, eventually, she hopes to go by only her first moniker as she progresses in her career. “I feel like I'd eventually just be Ariana: Isn't that sick?” she said. “I feel like it's got a ring to it.”

Grande has a lot of other wedding planning and marriage decisions to make, but she said that they are all on hold as she has a tour to finish and a recently released album, Sweetener, to promote. Even though she and Davidson got engaged after only a few weeks of dating, Grande said the actual nuptials could happen anytime between five months and five years from now, and that she eventually wants three kids with the SNL comedian.

Despite this leisurely wedding timeline, the couple has really taken the "when you know, you know” mantra to heart. Grande admits to knowing Davidson was the one the first time they met on the set of SNL back in 2016. “'I’m marrying him. 100 percent. I’m literally marrying him,'" she recalled telling her tour manager during an episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Davidson clearly felt the sparks as well. The comedian revealed to GQ how he felt about his bride-to-be when they first met. “The day I met her, I was like, 'Hey, I’ll marry you tomorrow.'"

Grande and Davidson were clearly made for each other.
