To say it’s been an emotional few weeks for Ariana Grande would be putting it lightly. After all, 22 people were killed and 59 were injured after her show on May 22. That’s why she went out of her way to host a benefit concert, titled One Love Manchester — which generated $2.6 million in donations over a three-hour period for a special fund to help victims of the terrorist attack, contributing to the $12.9 million raised so far — over the weekend.
But, perhaps, the last few weeks — maybe even months! — have been emotional on a more positive level for the 23-year-old Victorious alum as well. Like… maybe she’s not only a ~dangerous woman~; maybe she’s an engaged one, too!
While on stage at the June 4 performance, fans couldn’t help but notice a huge diamond ring on her left ring finger, leading everyone on the Internet thinking that the “One Last Time” singer’s boyfriend, Mac Miller, popped the question. People wear jewelry on that finger all the time, even when they’re not betrothed, but LOOK AT THAT ROCK:
Ariana and the 25-year-old rapper have only been dating for 10 months, but they’ve been friends for years, collaborating on the lead single, “The Way,” from her debut album, Yours Truly, back in early 2013, so they talk about their love quite frequently.
Although people are only just coming to the realization that Ari may be tapped to walk down the aisle soon, some fans pointed out that she’s been wearing that particular finger ornament throughout her Dangerous Woman Tour:

Is it an engagement ring? Is it a promise ring? Is it one of those “treat yo’self” type of pieces? Only Ariana knows for sure.
Prior to confirmation of her relationship with Mac Miller, Ariana racked up quite the dating timeline:
Ariana Grande and Graham Phillips

After Ariana and Graham called it quits, she began dating Victorious backup dancer, Jordan Viscomi. After a few months of dating, the pair broke up and Ari admitted that it was a "horrible, horrendous breakup."Photo: Twitter
Avan and Ariana kissed during an episode of Victorious, which led people to believe they could be an item IRL. The rumors were never confirmed, though.Photo: Instagram
As expected with most co-stars, there were once rumors that Ariana and Leon were a couple, too.Photo: Instagram
Ari's relationship with the Janoskians' star was possibly the most publicly dramatic of them all. The two broke up the first time after Ariana apparently cheated on him with Nathan Sykes (we know this because of his Twitter rant), but got back together not too long after. They broke up again following her grandfather's death.Photo: Instagram
Ariana began dating Nathan shortly after she and Jai broke up the first time. They dated for a few months before they mutually broke up.Photo: WENN
When Ari posted this picture, Beliebers everywhere FREAKED out and assumed the Biebs found a new GF. Ari denied the rumors, however, and even admitted that she didn't want to post the pic to begin with!Photo: Instagram
MM and AG look mighty cozy in her "The Way" music video, but while their acting was believable, their relationship IRL was nothing more than friends.Photo: YouTube
After they collaborated together, there were rumors that Ari and Sean were more than friends. Following the news of his engagement to Naya Rivera ending, the pair went public with their relaysh by holding hands at the VMAs.Photo: Instagram
