Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have made their love red carpet official!

The engaged pair stepped out to the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City on Monday, walking hand in hand as photographers snapped their pic.

The brunette beauty pulled out all the stops for her VMAs look, rocking a sexy stapless dress with over-the-knee boots, with her hair styled straight, a rare departure from her signature ponytail. The Saturday Night Live star let his girl shine, keeping it casual in a white sweater, black pants and black-and-white kicks.

This marks the first time the two have made a red carpet appearance together.

Later in the night, Grande will be taking the stage to perform her new song, "God Is a Woman," off her latest album, Sweetener, which just dropped last Friday. She also could win big during the ceremony -- she's nominated for Artist of the Year and her "No Tears Left to Cry" video is up for Best Cinematography and Video of the Year.

"I'm so excited for the VMAs. I'm grateful for the nominations, but I'm more excited about the performance," Grande, 25, revealed during an interview with Ebro Darden on Beats 1 on Apple Music last week. "I'm going to do 'God Is a Woman.' It's my favorite thing I'll probably ever do."

"I hope it goes well now that I said that," she joked. "It's my favorite. I love that song and I love this number."

Davidson and Grande confirmed their engagement back in June, after just a few weeks of dating. Since then, they haven't been shy about packing on the PDA, or expressing their love for one another via social media, in interviews or, in Grande's case, through lyrics.

The former Nickelodeon star adorably dedicated one of the songs off her new album to her fiance. Titled "Pete Davidson," Grande says the track is all about "the little crush" she had on the comedian from the moment they first met years ago.

"I just made it and I sent it to him, and I didn't know what to call it. So I just called it 'Pete,'" Grande recalled during her guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week. "It was either going to be that, or 'This Is About Pete Davidson.' I was like, ‘Why not?’ You know? You should be direct."
