Pete Davidson is so into Ariana Grande. In fact, the Saturday Night Live star knew he wanted to marry her on the very day that they met. When you know you know!

"The universe works in strange ways," Davidson told GQ of his engagement in a recent interview. "All I know is that I'm the luckiest guy in the world."

Fans got whiplash from Davidson and Grande's whirlwind romance that seemed to pop out of nowhere earlier this summer. The couple got engaged only a few weeks after their relationship went public, but Davidson was planning a proposal from day one.

"The day I met her, I was like, 'Hey, I'll marry you tomorrow,'" he told the magazine. "She was calling my bluff. I sent her a picture [of engagement rings]. I was like, 'Do you like any of these?' She was like, 'Those are my favorite ones,' and I was like, 'Sick.'"

Grande’s “favorite one” was apparently the $93,000 pear-shaped diamond engagement ring Davidson ultimately popped the question with. And the sparkler isn’t the only thing the newly engaged couple recently spent a small fortune on. They recently moved into a Manhattan apartment that reportedly cost $16 million, according to GQ.

"She's like, 'This is our house,' and I'm like, 'You're very nice for saying that. Thank you for letting me stay here,'" Davidson joked. "She's like, 'We're getting married!' And I'm like, 'I know, thank you for letting me stay here.'"

And like most newly co-habituating couples might experience, Davidson and Grande's space is still a work in progress. "It's like, we have six beanbags, but we have no forks—you know what I mean?" the SNL star explained. "We're learning how to be adults. We're having a really fun time."

On top of properly furnishing their new home (what are wedding registries for, anyway?), the couple will eventually have to start wedding planning, as well. A source told Entertainment Tonight that Grande has reportedly talked about throwing a winter wonderland wedding and having her brother Frankie Grande walk her down the aisle, but according to Davidson, they are still in the early planning stages.

But even without concrete plans, the big day is indeed on the horizon. Davidson says the wedding is "definitely going to happen, for sure."
