Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez's Relationship Timeline: From Dating in Quarantine to Getting Married
Ariana Grande is married!
On May 17, PEOPLE confirmed the singer tied the knot with fiancé Dalton Gomez at their home in Montecito, California.
"It was tiny and intimate — less than 20 people," her rep told PEOPLE exclusively. "The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn't be happier."
Grande shared the news of her engagement to Gomez in December 2020, posting a series of images on Instagram that included a photo of her diamond engagement ring.
"Forever n then some," she captioned the post.
"They couldn't be happier, they're just so excited. This is a happy time for them, both sets of parents are thrilled," a source told PEOPLE of Grande and Gomez, who is a real estate engagement.
Below, a detailed timeline of the couple's relationship.
In March 2020, a source told PEOPLE that Grande and Gomez had been dating since January. The pair were previously spotted kissing in a Northridge, California, bar in February; TMZ reported on the outing at the time and was the first to confirm Gomez as Grande’s new man.
A separate insider told PEOPLE at the time that the two were quarantining together at the singer’s Los Angeles home.
“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 insider said. “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.”
"Stuck with U" Music Video
In May, Gomez made a cameo appearance in the music video for Grande and Justin Bieber's hit duet "Stuck with U," which included clips of fans and celebrities practicing social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the video, Grande and Gomez sweetly danced, twirled and hugged as they flashed big smiles at one another.
The song was even more meaningful for Grande, as proceeds from the sales and streams of "Stuck with U" went toward grants and scholarships for children of first responders who were impacted by COVID-19 in partnership with the First Responders Children’s Foundation.
Grande finally made her romance with Gomez Instagram official in June to celebrate her 27th birthday, sharing a gallery that featured photos and videos of her dogs, a childhood photo and a sweet image of the happy couple.
"Almost 27 :)," she captioned the series of photos.
Raving About Gomez
The singer raved about her now-husband back on his birthday in August.
"Hbd to my baby my best friend my fav part of all the days :) i love u," she wrote on Instagram.
Grande, who released her Netflix documentary Excuse Me, I Love You on Dec. 21, was showered with love from her friends and family after announcing her engagement.
"Congrats to these two amazing souls. Ari we love you and could not be happier for you. Dalton you are a lucky man," her manager Scooter Braun wrote in the comments section.
Her mother also shared a congratulatory tweet. "I am so excited to welcome Dalton Gomez into our family! Ariana, I love you and Dalton so much!!!! Here’s to happily ever after! YAY! xoxoxo," Joan Grande wrote.
After keeping quiet on the personal front for the first few months of 2021 — while professionally dropping new music, joining The Voice and picking up a Grammy Award — Grande married Gomez in May in a "tiny and intimate" ceremony, PEOPLE confirmed.
"The room was so happy and full of love," her rep told PEOPLE. "The couple and both families couldn't be happier."
The couple had hardly been seen in public, save for a March date night in L.A. and some glimmers of their time together from Grande's Instagram posts at Christmas and Valentine's Day.
Shortly after their engagement, a source told PEOPLE that Gomez "likes keeping his relationship with Ari private. They have been able to get to know each other in peace."
