Photos: Ariana Grande and Mac Miller Are Puckering On Instagram

She only recently confirmed she was dating Mac Miller during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
And it seems as though Ariana Grande is more than ready now to publicly display her love for her rapper beau as she took to Instagram to share a photo of the pair puckering up on Sunday.
The 23-year-old pop star and her 24-year-old boyfriend kissed affectionately in the sweet social media post...............

Ariana captioned the cute photo with the cryptic message 'this pool is haunted. OK' and two hours later had already received nearly 574 thousand likes. 
The romantic picture appears to be taken after dark in a disused swimming pool.

Ariana topped her look off with a coordinating blue sweater which casually fell off her shoulders flashing some skin.

The petite singer added a giant pair of black leather platform booties to her date night look. 
Ariana wore her hair in her signature high ponytail which gave all her social media followers a good look at the lip on lip action. 

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh-native Mac, real name Malcolm James McCormick, kept it casual in a black T-shirt and jeans.

He sported a white cap and showed of his neck tattoo as he leaned in to kiss his girlfriend.  
An hour later, Ariana shared another picture of the pair to Instagram. 
The more recent post showed the couple still in the same unknown location but they were no longer kissing. 

The caption only included ghost emoji's and received nearly 100 thousand less likes than the first, but still an impressive 476 thousand likes.  

Not long ago, the Boca Raton native snapped at Ryan Seacrest during her On Air With Ryan Seacrest appearance, apparently taking offense when his first question was about her love. 
The 41-year-old host claimed she'd confirmed their rumored relationship via Instagram.

But the Dangerous Woman singer insisted that whatever the post implied, it 'doesn't mean that you, Ryan Seacrest, with millions of listeners, are entitled to more information.'

Ariana shared the post back in September, showing the rapper astride her on the kitchen floor.

Laughing, she wrapped her arms and legs around Mac's neck, captioning it: 'Baabyyy.'
She did, however, confirm she was dating the rapper during The Ellen DeGeneres Show that aired the same day.  

The talented duo recently took to the stage to perform a steamy and flirty rendition of his new song, My Favorite Part, for his concert special Mac Miller: The Divine Feminine.
