Hello, good day, did you hear that Ariana Grande and her mans of approximately a year and five-ish month—yes, real estate agent Dalton Gomez—are married now?! TMZ says the couple tied the knot with a low-key ceremony over the weekend with just 20 people witnessing their union. I know it sounds too good to be true, but Ari's rep confirmed the marriage news in a statement to People and added, "The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn't be happier."

So uh, now that Dalton and Ari are officially husband and wife, it's time to go back (back to the beginning) and relive every single detail of their super cute whirlwind romance—you know, to (1) keep busy and (2) stop myself from weeping over that fact that my significant other has yet to propose!

Editor's note: This timeline is in reverse chronological order, so all the recent juicy details will be hanging out at the very top!


MAY 17, 2021

Ariana and Dalton get married in secret over the weekend!!! TMZ breaks the news first—their source says Ari and Dalton exchanged vows at her Montecito home, and they didn't have much of a "ceremony" in favor of keeping it more "informal." It's also unclear if Ariana and Dalton planned to get married going into the weekend or if it was a ~spur of the moment~ thing.

Ariana's rep confirms the marriage news in a statement to People and provides additional intel on what the big day was like: "It was tiny and intimate—less than 20 people. The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn't be happier." A source also tells People, "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."

No social media posts from Ari or Dalton yet about the big news, but fingers crossed!

"Ariana and Dalton's wedding will happen early summer," an insider tells Us Weekly. "They have been looking at venues in a few different cities but are most likely choosing California."

It also seems like Ari and Dalton aren't in the mood for a big bash, either. Us' source says they want a "very small and intimate affair," and adds that "nothing will officially happen until it's safe," referring to the pandemic.

Here's a lil update on what's happening in Ari and Dalton's world: According to Entertainment Tonight, they "have been spending a ton of time together since getting engaged and keeping things pretty low key and private. They're mainly keeping to themselves and just enjoying their time together."


Sounds great, but the bad news is some of Ari's closest peeps "think the engagement was somewhat rushed and are skeptical that the relationship will ultimately be short-lived." Yikes.

An Us Weekly source shares how Ari's feeling post-engagement, saying, "She has really enjoyed getting to know and falling in love with Dalton out of the spotlight, something she didn't get to do in her past relationships," and "they are so in love and committed to spend the rest of their lives together." Ugh, love to hear it!


OCTOBER 30, 2020

Arianators are freaking TF because Ari's newest single, "34+35," is easily the horniest song she's ever released. I mean...the song title literally is equivalent to 69, which is a sex position. Poor Dalton is all the fans can talk about, and we get some great meme content out of it, of course:

"Ariana is staying at home with friends. She is very serious about self-distancing and has been with the same group of people for days," the source says. "One of the people she is with right now is Dalton—they have been hanging out for a couple of months. 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."
