Dalton Gomez put a ring on it! Ariana Grande‘s boyfriend of less than one year appears to have popped the question, and the “7 Rings” hitmaker took to Instagram on December 20 to reveal the happy news. “forever n then some,” she captioned a carousel post featuring a photo of her gorgeous engagement ring. The unique piece of jewelry was encrusted with a large diamond alongside a small pearl, which she showed off in a stunning mirror selfie.
Ariana also shared multiple happy snaps of her and Dalton cuddled up together, including a pic of the pair lying on a wooden floor with their legs intertwined. The newly engaged couple are believed to have started dating in early 2020. Fans first noticed there was a mystery man in the background of some of her Instagram stories while she was holed up at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic in March. She later confirmed their relationship status by featuring him in her “Stuck with U” music video.
The couple have gone from strength to strength ever since, going on romantic getaways and packing on the PDA in sweet social media snaps. Friends of the couple couldn’t be happier to hear the exciting news, with Hailey Bieber commenting on Ari’s post, “YAYYYYYY!!!! so happy for you guys!!” Beauty guru James Charles wrote, “Congratulations,” while Kim Kardashian commented, “Soooo happy for u guys!!! Love you!!!” Her manager Scooter Braun also sent his well wishes. “congrats to these two amazing souls. Ari we love you and could not be happier for you. Dalton you are a lucky man,” the infamous music manager commented.
Meanwhile, some fans were so shocked they didn’t know how to react. “I DONT KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THIS INFORMATION,” one fan wrote, while another commented, “MOST. FLAWLESS. COUPLE. IN. THE. WORLD.” Of course, this isn’t Ariana’s first engagement. Fans of the singer would recall she was engaged to Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson in 2018 after dating for just a few weeks. They called off their engagement about four months later in October of 2018.
