Everyone showered Ariana Grande with congratulations when she posted a series of pictures of herself and boyfriend – now fiancÃ© – Dalton Gomez and of her hand with a glistening diamond ring. The Instagram post was captioned “forever n then some.”
While it’s not an outright announcement, the caption and the fact she was wearing the large diamond-and-pearl ring on her left ring finger makes it loud and clear. Ariana’s mother and brother also took to social media to congratulate the couple and voice out their excitement to welcome Gomez into the family.
The public has always followed Ariana Grande’s romantic relationships closely, but unlike most of her ex-boyfriends that you know, Dalton Gomez isn’t in the entertainment industry. Rather, he’s an Los Angeles-based real estate agent.
The newly engaged couple has been together for almost a year as their relationship first started last January. It was only in May, however, when she did a collaboration with Justin Bieber for the single “Stuck with U,” that she first showed him off to the world. Towards of the end of the video is a clip of her and Gomez happily slow dancing in a bedroom. This suggests that they probably have been quarantining together as well.
Last time we heard engagement news from Ariana Grande was two years ago. It ended with her very public breakup with ex-fiancÃ©, Pete Davidson, and a new album with a titular single, “Thank U, Next,” where she talked about her exes and the hope that she only has to walk down the aisle once. Arianators are hoping this one ends with wedding bells and no more heartbreaks for the pop singer.
