The star went on to joke about how strangers have reacted to the couple when they see them in public. “It’s so funny to walk down the street because dudes are walking by. Did you see that Derek Jeter commercial? He’s retiring and everybody tips their hat.”

He added: “Some dude goes up to me and says, ‘Yo man, you gave me hope.’ I was like I didn’t know I was that ugly. I’m a lucky motherf—ker.”

Us Weekly exclusively revealed earlier this month that Davidson and the singer, 24, are engaged after just a few weeks of dating. He reportedly paid $93,000 for a 3-carat engagement ring from jeweler Greg Yuna.
