During a recent interview with the Telegraph, the 21-year-old singer gushed about the 26-year-old. When asked if they are dating, Ariana said, “Yes,” before continuing, “He is one of the most amazing men in the whole world, and that includes my grandfather and my brother.

Dating rumors were already all but confirmed in August, at the 2014 MTV VMAs, when Ariana and Big Sean held hands backstage. They also sparked rumors after collaborating on several songs, including her big hit, “Problem.”

Though there was already speculation, the two holding hands backstage was their first public display of affection. Perhaps they forgot about the numerous cameras?
