Ariana Grande is legit saving 2020. First, it was her album, Positions, then it was the news of her upcoming Netflix documentary, Excuse Me, I Love You, and now it’s her engagement. Yes, you read that correctly!! Ariana is engaged to Dalton Gomez after less than a year of dating and she announced the news on her Instagram on Dec. 20.
She captioned photos of the two of them, “forever n then some.” Of course, celebs began congratulating her immediately. “YAYYYYYY!!!!😍😍😍😍😍 so happy for you guys!!” Hailey Bieber wrote. RuPaul’s Drag Race star Jan Sport commented, “CONGRATS QUEEN!!! HAPPY ENGAGEMENT AND NETFLIX SPECIAL EVE!!! A HOLIDAY SEROTONIN MIRACLE FOR US ALL.”
It feels like we just found out that Ariana had been quarantining with her now-fiancé, Dalton, and now they’re engaged. What separates Ari’s future husband (!!) from her exes is 1. He’s not famous and 2. She confirmed their relationship in a MUSIC VIDEO. At the end of “Stuck With U,” there’s a PDA sesh that pretty much broke the internet.
An Us Weekly source previously explained what made Ariana initially fall for Dalton:
“Ariana sees something different in Dalton that she has never seen before in guys she has previously dated… Her exes acted as though she was demanding and had crazy standards,” the insider said. “He is the type of guy she has been looking for. He’s very protective of her, will go out of his way for her, and does little things that are chivalrous. Dalton will go above and beyond to meet her needs.”
