Ariana Grande is now engaged to her new boyfriend, real estate tycoon Dalton Gomez.
The ultra low-key couple have managed to stay out of the public eye in recent months, but Grande confirmed their relationship in May when the two appeared together in Grande and Justin Bieber’s quarantine music video for their duet, “Stuck with U.” The pairing marked Grande’s first public relationship since she ended her engagement with Saturday Night Live star, Pete Davidson.
TMZ first confirmed Gomez’s back in March when the two were reportedly spotted kissing at a bar, but the pair have continued to share subtle insight into their relationship over the course of their relationship. By December, the pair announced they’r ready to tie the knot. Below, we broke down everything we know about the burgeoning real estate tycoon and the pop songstress.
THE TWO HAVE BEEN DATING SINCE JANUARY 2020.
According to People, the pair began dating at the start of the new year but Grande has insisted on keeping their union as hush-hush as possible, following her very public fling with SNL star Pete Davidson.
“They have been hanging out for a couple of months,” a source told the outlet. “Ariana doesn’t want to do another public relationship so she is trying to keep this one quiet, but she seems very happy with Dalton.”
GOMEZ IS A SUCCESSFUL REAL ESTATE AGENT.
Gomez isn’t a part of the entertainment industry, but rather a budding real estate tycoon. He reportedly works as a buyer’s agent for the Aaron Kirman Group, a luxury real estate company in Los Angeles. According to the bio on his official profile on the business’s website, Gomez “holds one of the largest rolodexes of A-list buyers” and is known for his “extensive knowledge in the fields of architecture and luxury estates.”
GOMEZ AND GRANDE HAVE BEEN QUARANTINING TOGETHER SINCE THE START OF THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS.
“[Ariana] is very serious about self-distancing and has been with the same group of people for days,” a source told the magazine. “One of the people she is with right now is Dalton.”
BOTH GOMEZ AND GRANDE HAVE MADE BLINK-AND-YOU’LL-MISS-IT APPEARANCES ON EACH OTHER’S SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS.
Before the release of the “Stick with U” music video, both Grande and Gomez made brief appearances on each other’s Instagram stories.
A clip of Grande dancing while grasping a glass of wine previously appeared on Gomez’s (private) account while Grande once posted a black-and-white of her new beau from behind playing video games. Fans were quick to connect that the tattoos of the figure in Grande’s photo did indeed belong to Gomez.
