Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have finally walked their first red carpet as a couple — and they didn’t hold back.

More than two months after getting engaged, the pair made their debut public appearance at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Monday.

Wearing a revealing metallic dress and stiletto, over-the-knee stocking boots while letting her long locks flow free, Grande kissed her fiancé, who went casual in a NASA sweatshirt and black sweatpants.

At another point, Grande, 25, stared adoringly at Davidson, 24, as he wrapped his arm around her and leaned in.

Inside the event, the pair looked super cute and cuddly, smiling and whispering together during the show.

Grande also gave her fiancé a shout out as she was accepting the award for Best Pop.

“Pete Davidson thank you for existing,” she remarked at the end of her speech.

Davidson previously attended the 2016 MTV VMAs with then-girlfriend Cazzie David while Grande attended with then-boyfriend Mac Miller.

PEOPLE confirmed that Grande and Davidson had recently started casually dating back in late May. Then, just weeks later on June 11, PEOPLE discovered they had gotten engaged after the comedian popped the question with a massive 3-carat diamond ring.

In July, Grande, who will be performing “God Is a Woman” at the VMAs, defended herself and her relationship after fans criticized her decision to name one of the tracks on her new album Sweetener after the Saturday Night Live star.

He’s my fiancé. This is my album. I’m an honest and emotional artist and human being and if my openness in my work isn’t for you, that’s OK,” she wrote to one fan. “I won’t be offended. Still wishing y’all all the love in the world.”

Davidson confirmed the engagement himself in June during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, saying, “I feel like I won a contest, so sick. It’s f—ing lit, Jimmy. It’s so lit.”

Shortly after accepting her fiancé’s proposal, Grande told fans: “I have everything I ever wanted.”
