The Dangerous Woman is a married woman! Yes, Ariana Grande got married over the weekend in a super-small ceremony in Montecito, California. "The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn't be happier," her rep told People magazine.

But who did she get hitched to? Here's everything we know about Dalton Gomez, Ariana Grande's lawfully wedded husband.

When did Ariana Grande meet Dalton Gomez?

The Dalton Gomez Ariana Grande coupling was first spotted back in February 2020, when the duo was found dining (and smooching) together at Bar Louie in Los Angeles.

Reports claim that they began dating sometime in January, though how they first met is still under wraps. (Given how scrutinized Grande's relationships have been over the years, it's no surprise that she's been more low-key with this one.) Gomez has been known to run in celebrity circles, however, with the likes of Miley Cyrus popping up in his Instagram Stories, so it's likely they met through mutual friends.

In May 2020, Grande publicly announced their relationship in the music video of her duet with Justin Bieber, "Stuck with U," which showed the couple hugging and dancing, revealing that they were quarantining together during the coronavirus lockdown. 

When did Ariana Grande get engaged?

After nearly a year of dating, Dalton Gomez and Ariana Grande got engaged right before Christmas 2020. Gomez opted for a non-traditional engagement ring for his bride-to-be, complete with an oval-shaped diamond set at an angle and accented with a pearl.

Grande's Instagram post of the stunning (and sizeable) rock became one of Instagram’s most-liked posts of all time with over 15 million likes in less than 24 hours. Grande captioned the post: "forever n then some."

How many times was Ariana Grande engaged?

Ariana Grande's engagement to Dalton Gomez marks the second time that the singer has been betrothed. The singer and SNL funnyman Pete Davidson embarked on a whirlwind (and much-publicized) romance back in May 2018, with Davidson proposing to Grande almost immediately after their first date. 

Prior to Davidson, Grande famously dated the late American rapper Mac Miller from 2016 to 2018, but they were never engaged. 

When did Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson break up?

The relationship between Grande and Davidson burned bright and fast—only five months (and several couple's tattoos) after they first got together, the pair split in October 2018, just a few weeks after Grande's ex Mac Miller's passed away from an accidental overdose. Davidson told Charlamagne Tha God in an interview that he told a grieving Grande: "'Listen, I get it, do whatever you've got to do, I'll be here.'"

Grande used the breakup as song fodder for her next record, Thank U, Next, while Davidson joked about it on Saturday Night Life and his stand-up comedy shows, saying that he was busy covering tattoos and "looking for roommates" after he had moved out of Grande's home.  

Now Pete Davidson and Phoebe Dynevor of Bridgerton fame are dating.
