Yesterday, 27 year old pop icon Ariana Grande announced her engagement on Instagram, sending everyone into a frenzy.
Grande’s man, Dalton Gomez – a luxury home real estate agent from Los Angeles – has been pictured with her since February this year and, while never revealing how long they’ve been together, Grande officially announced their relationship in her ‘Stuck With U’ music video back in May.
After quarantining together throughout the pandemic, Gomez did the job with ‘7 rings’ rolled into one: a huge pearl and opal-cut diamond engagement ring displayed on Ariana’s instagram post with her hand covering her face. The post, which also featured some unseen polaroid pictures of the couple, sparked congratulations from the Kardashians, Bella Hadid and Ariana’s Victorious ex-costars. Meanwhile on twitter, Joan Grande (her mother) tweeted “I am so excited to welcome Dalton Gomez into our family! Ariana, I love you and Dalton so much!!!! Here’s to happily ever after! YAY xoxoxo” and manager Scooter Braun wrote “Congrats to these two amazing souls. Ari we love you and could not be happier for you. Dalton you are a lucky man.”
The news came the day before Ariana’s new Netflix documentary Excuse Me, I Love You that shows her on and off stage during last year’s Sweetener tour, an oasis for fans and a sore spot for all of us missing live shows. While her recent post shows her love and dedication to her new fiance, there are no doubts of her undying love and dedication to her fans as she labels it a love letter to them…
All the best to Ariana and Dalton!
