Congratulations to the happy couple!
Original story: Who Is Ariana Grande's Boyfriend, Dalton Gomez?
Ariana Grande first gave a public nod to her new relationship status with boyfriend Dalton Gomez during lockdown, this year when she released her soundtrack to quarantine Stuck with U with Justin Bieber.
In the video for the song, Gomez appears dancing and cuddling Grande in a sweet moment while the camera splits to show the new couple alongside Bieber dancing with wife Hailey Baldwin from their home).
Since then Grande has introduced Gomez to fans more and more, with appearances on her Instagram and in August, wishing her partner a Happy Birthday with an adorable tribute.
Here's everything else we know about their relationship:
Who Is Ariana Grande's Boyfriend Dalton Gomez?
Dalton Gomez is a luxury real estate broker based in southern California. According to a biography on his company website, Gomez has been in the business for five years and is credited as holding 'one of the largest rolodexes of A-List buyers' across Los Angeles. Described as quickly becoming 'an industry titan', Gomez typically works selling mansions in swanky neighbourhoods like Bel Air and Malibu with price tags of $10 million upwards to A-List clients.
Did Dalton Gomez attend the MTV VMAs with Ariana Grande?
He sure did!
Grande shared several photos from the MTV VMAs on Sunday August 30 and the adorable moment she shared with her boyfriend, months after the pair went 'Instagram official'.
On Monday August 31, the star took to Instagram to share behind-the-scenes images from her performance with Lady Gaga, herself in the hairdresser’s chair ahead of the star-studded night and her and Gaga sharing a bottle of anti-bacterial gel while wearing face masks.
However, we also noticed that Grande added a final shot in the collection of images of her walking hand-in-hand with her new beau.
It was a big night for Grande who, with Gaga, won Song of the Year, Best Collaboration, and Best Cinematography for ‘Rain on Me’. The duo were also nominated for Best Pop Song, Best Video Effects, and Best Choreography for the single.
Grande and Justin Bieber were also nominated for Best Collaboration and Best Music Video from Home (for their song ‘Stuck With U’) and won the latter.
Are Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez Instagram official?
Yes! More on when this happened below, but earlier this summer Grande publicly wished her other half a happy birthday via a collection of heartfelt Instagram Stories.
'Hbd to my baby, my best friend and the fav part of all the days,' the 'God Is A Woman' singer wrote alongside some videos and photos of the couple.

The 27-year-old also shared a hilarious fan meme of what her children with Gomez would apparently look like. Although we can't see into the future, here at ELLE we're pretty confident that the photo is actually not an accurate prediction of what the children would look like.

In June, Ariana confirmed that she and Gomez are officially an item on her Instagram account ahead of her 27th birthday.
On Friday June 26, the singer shared a series of photos of herself and life in lockdown to her 191 million followers including a snap of herself with her dogs and one of her cuddling up to her property mogul beau.
In the snap, Gomez wears a black sweater and cap with an arm around the famous singer, who is dressed in an oversized grey sweatshirt and a her hair worn in a messy bun.
‘Almost 27,’ Grande captioned the snap, with a smiley face emoji.
This is the first time Grade and Gomez have gone public with their romance since he appeared in her music video with Bieber for their hit single and made a cameo in a sketch following the release of her single 'Rain on Me' with Gaga.
How long have Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez been dating?
Grande has been famously single for a while now - we say famously because she literally wrote a song about how grateful she was for time for herself and what she'd learned from each of her high-profile ex-boyfriends in 2018 with thank u, next - but was first reported to have found love again in February.
TMZ posted pictures of Grande kissing someone in a bar in LA in February and then a month later reported that the man in question was Gomez and that he is friends with Miley Cyrus - who has been close to Grande for years.
A source told People in March that the new couple 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'.
Eagle-eyed fans then noticed that Grande and Gomez were quarantining together amid the Coronavirus pandemic, as a male figure was seen in the backdrop of some of the 'No Tears Left To Cry' singer's Instagram Stories.
Following the 'Stuck with U' video, we then saw Gomez again when Grande and Lady Gaga appeared side-by-side in a parody weather report segment for The Weather Channel discussing the deluge of rain they were currently experiencing in LA - a plug for their single 'Rain On Me', get it?
While we were very occupied watching the two singers play weather reporter, we almost missed another cameo by Gomez where he was seen helping out his girlfriend by playing prop manager and spraying her with a shower while she sheltered under an umbrella for the segment.
Grande then acknowledged her boyfriend's assistance with a zoomed in photo of Gomez holding the shower accompanied by a crying and heart emoji on her Instagram Story:
