So who is Dalton Gomez, how did they meet and what do we know about the wedding? This is everything you need to know.

Who is Dalton Gomez?

Gomez is a real-estate agent who works for the Aaron Kirman Group in Los Angeles, a luxury agency selling million dollar homes to the rich and famous.

His bio on the agent’s official website says he has an "extensive knowledge in the fields of architecture and luxury estates," but not much more is known about Grande’s low-key husband.

Gomez previously worked as a backing dancer, which is how he is thought to have become acquainted with the likes of Miley Cyrus and other leading pop singers.

The 27-year-old grew up in southern California and he has a brother called Dakota who is a tattoo artist.

When did they get married?

Grande and Gomez reportedly wed in an “intimate” ceremony at her home in Montecito, California.

A representative for the singer told PA: "They got married. It was tiny and intimate - [fewer] than 20 people.

"The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn't be happier."

Montecito is a celebrity hot spot, where Oprah Winfrey, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Orlando Bloom reside.

Prince Harry recently told Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast that there is far more privacy from the press in Montecito, compared to Los Angeles.

How did Ariana Grande meet her husband?

The pair are reported by Elle to have met through mutual friends. While his Instagram profile is private, he is followed by Ariana’s director friend, Alfredo Flores, her backing dancer, Scott Nicholson, and her bestie, Courtney Chipolone.

He also previously featured in Miley Cyrus’s Instagram story back in 2017.

How long have Ariana and Dalton been dating?

The pair began dating in January 2020, with Grande keen to keep her boyfriend out of the limelight.

She previously had very public relationships with late rapper Mac Miller and Kanye West’s friend and fellow rapper, Big Sean.

They made their official debut as a couple when Gomez appeared in her video for ‘Stuck with U’ which she collaborated on with Justin Beiber and released in May 2020.

Prior to this, he was rumoured to be her boyfriend when the two enjoyed time with friends at Bar Louie in Northridge, California.

In late June, Ariana posted to her social media for her 27th birthday a selection of romantic photos of the pair together, as well as videos of them relaxing with her pet chihuahua at the poolside of her home in LA.

By August, Grande was less low-key, wishing Gomez a very public happy birthday in a post shared with her 211 million Instagram followers.

She captioned the string of videos and photos: “hbd to my baby my best friend my fav part of all the days :) i love u”. She also allowed comments on the post, which is something she had previously not permitted.

On 20 December 2020, Grande announced their engagement in a candid photo of the pair cuddling on the floor, alongside a close up of a stunning diamond ring.

She captioned the shot “forever n then some” leaving no question that the pair had become engaged.
