LOS ANGELES • Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson on Wednesday confirmed reports that he and American pop star Ariana Grande are engaged after dating for less than two months.

Davidson, 24, told talk-show host Jimmy Fallon in an appearance on The Tonight Show that the rumours of the past week are correct.

"I did," Davidson said, when asked by Fallon whether he had got engaged. "I feel like I've won a contest," he added about his romance with Grande.

Grande, 24, and Davidson went public about dating late last month through their social media accounts, a few weeks after ending their previous relationships. Celebrity media reported last week that they were engaged.

The Dangerous Woman singer was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her engagement finger earlier this week, and celebrity media reported on Wednesday that the couple had moved into a Manhattan apartment together.

Grande launched her career on the Nickelodeon television show Victorious in 2010 and released her first studio album in 2013. She has gone on to become one of the most popular young artists in the United States, winning three American Music Awards.

In June last year, she won plaudits for returning to the English city of Manchester for a benefit concert for the victims of a suicide bombing that killed 22 people moments after she had finished a concert.

Davidson started his career as a stand-up comedian and joined popular satirical sketch show Saturday Night Live in 2014.
