8 Celebrity Couples That Got Engaged After A Few Weeks Like Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Did
When it comes to celebrity couples, I sometimes feel like I can't keep up. Pairs spring up often, and it seems like celebrities have some magical ability to move superhero-fast in relationships. They date, make it Instagram-official, break up, and that's all before I can get through my Netflix queue. But then they move on and date new celebrities. And sometimes, when you know you know (or so I've been told). With news of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's engagement, why don't we take a look at other couples that got engaged after a few weeks?
Some of these pairs got married, some stayed married, and some went on to divorce. All of these celebrity couples dealt with their relationship while simultaneously balancing careers and the demands of Hollywood fame. It's hard enough dealing with a relationship with my nearly-1,400 Instagram followers — I can't imagine the microscope these pairs are under. And yes, couples from The Bachelor franchise that got engaged mostly made that relationship step under a couple of months, and some went on to get married and have kids of their own. Trust the ~journey~, I guess? Anyway, here are some celebrity couples that got engaged within a few months of dating.
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson
The whole reason we are having this conversation: Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's engagement was made public on June 11, after a few weeks of dating.
"They are a perfect fit," a source told Us Weekly. "They are not rushing to get married. Their friends are really excited and supportive."
The two told people about their engagement at Robert Pattinson's birthday party on June 9. Mazel tov to the newly-engaged couple!
Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Sean and Catherine Lowe
Sean Lowe met Catherine Lowe (née Giudici) when she was a contestant on his season of The Bachelor in 2012, which aired in 2013. After a few months of dating on the reality show, the two got engaged in Thailand, and married in January 2014 in Santa Barbara, California. They share two children together, Samuel and Isaiah.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon had a whirlwind romance in 2008, when they got married after dating for six weeks.
Cannon proposed in a maybe unconventional way.
"When I first proposed to my wife, I did it with real Ring Pops," Cannon told Us Weekly. "I had a Ring Pop wrapper and opened it and was like, 'Look, baby, our favorite candy!' She had hers and she was like, 'Mine is broken.' She opened it up and it was her real engagement ring. So I'm a romantic guy!"
The divorced couple have twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
J.P. and Ashley Rosenbaum
J.P. Rosenbaum and Ashley Rosenbaum (née Hebert) dated while on her season of The Bachelorette in 2011, and got engaged during the last episode in Fiji. They married in Pasadena, California on December 2012, with Chris Harrison officiating. They have a son, Fordham, and a daughter, Essex.
Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd
Real Housewives and Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump got engaged early on in her courtship with Ken Todd.
"We got engaged after six weeks and we were married within three months," Vanderpump told her former employee Stassi Schroeder on Schroeder's Straight Up with Stassi podcast. "He was a playboy, running around town with his trousers 'round his ankles. And I was dating somebody else. I just looked at him and there was an instant connection."
The Vanderpumps have two children, Pandora and Max.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard
Quite similar to Ari and Pete, Emily Ratajkowski and her now-husband Sebastian Bear-McClard had been dating a few weeks when he popped the question.
"He proposed to me at Minetta Tavern, and he didn’t have a ring so I was like, 'Mm, nah,'" Ratajkowski said. "And then he took the paper clip that the bill was paid with and made me a ring, which I actually thought was really romantic."
Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard got married at City Hall in New York City in February 2018.
So all the people writing off Grande and Davidson's engagement as doomed from the start – chill out. Clearly, some of these fast engagement stories show a marriage can work.
