On May 15, 2021, Ariana Grande secretly made one of the biggest moves of her life: She married her fiancé and partner of over a year, Los Angeles real estate agent Dalton Gomez. The two got engaged just ahead of the Christmas holiday, less than a year after the two were first seen together in February. On May 26, Grande shared the first photos from their wedding, giving the public a rare and intimate look at the two together.
Gomez and Grande have publicly been together for over a year and privately longer.
TMZ reported in late March 2020 that the man Ariana Grande was seen making out with around Valentine’s Day was actually Gomez, and he had been her new boyfriend for “several months,” according to the outlet’s Grande sources. People and E! independently reported the same news hours later: that Grande is off the market but has been keeping her new relationship private.
Grande and Gomez quarantined together, and he has appeared on her Instagram Story, TMZ pointed out.
The singer confirmed their relationship in her “Stuck With U” music video on May 8, 2020. On May 26, 2020, Grande gave Gomez his first proper Instagram shoutout.
Gomez made his Instagram private right as news broke of their dating, but Grande does follow him.
Several of her friends, including Alfredo Flores, Scott Nicholson, and Courtney Chipolone do too. So who is Gomez? Here, all you need to know about him and his relationship with Grande, including info about their private wedding and all the songs on Positions that are about him.
Gomez and Grande wed in her Montecito house in May 2021.
A little over a year after Grande and Gomez made their first public appearance together, the two have wed, TMZ and E! report. A rep for Grande confirmed the wedding on May 17, detailing that the two wed in a private ceremony in her Montecito home over the weekend.
As for why the venue was chosen, a source told People, “Both Ari and Dalton love Montecito. They spend a lot of time there. It seems only natural that they would get married at Ari’s beautiful and historic house.”
An insider describes the gathering to E! as “tiny and intimate. There was a lot of love and everyone is really happy.” TMZ was told by sources that there were less than 20 guests, and the nuptials were informal. There was no real “ceremony,” per the outlet, just a casual vow exchange. Neither Grande nor Gomez have posted about the news immediately after it broke.
E! was told that “hundreds of white florals” were used as decor. “It was beautiful but not over the top,” a source said. “Ari wanted it to be simplistic and tasteful. All they cared about was having family there and to be able to enjoy the special moment together.”
On May 26, Grande shared photos from their wedding in three Instagram posts. She confirmed their wedding date was May 15. She wore a Vera Wang dress for her nuptials.
Gomez gave Grande a pearl and diamond engagement ring and a platinum diamond wedding band.
Grande broke the news of their engagement on December 20, sharing rare photos of them together and showing off the diamond and pearl ring that Gomez gave her. “forever n then some,” Grande wrote. The engagement comes 10 months after the couple were first seen in public together in February 2020.
