What You Don't Know About Ariana Grande's New Fiance

Ariana Grande is engaged! And if you're not sure exactly who her fiancé, Dalton Gomez, is, you're not alone. The Grammy winner's beau is a real estate agent in California, and it sounds like she loves that he's not a household name like she is.

"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," an unnamed source said to People in March 2020, when the quarantine started and fans first caught on that Grande and Gomez were spending time together. It looks like their relationship has blossomed during the pandemic, with Grande writing in her December 2020 Instagram post announcing the engagement that she plans to be with Gomez "forever n then some."

The relationship has moved quickly — they've reportedly been together for less than a year — but the two look super happy together. As the saying goes, when you know, you know!

Dalton Gomez is a seasoned real estate agent in LA

While some fans of the "Positions" singer may not know Dalton Gomez by name, it sounds like he's rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in the entertainment world. "Mr. Gomez now holds one of the largest Rolodexes of A-list buyers and is already connecting many high profile deals across the city," his agent profile for the Aaron Kirman Group reads. It looks like he's also worked with the group for more than five years, and he has some pretty impressive (think seven to eight figures) sales under his belt. Gomez was also seen with Miley Cyrus in 2017, way before he and Grande started dating, so he's definitely in with the A-list crowd.

"Ariana was looking for a home outside of Los Angeles to be her getaway house, and her team found Dalton to help," an unnamed source dished to Us Weekly in August 2020. "When she saw him, she immediately thought he was cute and very good-looking, and she asked her team to set up an in-person meeting with him. Ariana fell very hard for Dalton shortly after they met." Who would have thought that fans would get to learn about such a sweet meet-cute amidst the pandemic? Good for the couple for finding love amid the year's bad news.

Ariana Grande's new relationship is her first public one since calling things off with Pete Davidson

Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez seem really happy, and plenty of fans and fellow stars have chimed in with well wishes for the happy couple. But it's not Grande's first time being engaged. She was also engaged to Pete Davidson in 2018, but they called things off after just four months of engagement.

After all of the media speculation surrounding her first engagement, though, it makes sense that Grande would want a more low-key engagement this time around. The photos in her Instagram post about the engagement are super casual, with the pop star rocking jeans and chilling at home.

And if the engagement seems fast — Grande and Gomez were first seen together in February, according to TMZ — fans should remember that we're on pandemic time. With nothing else to do besides spending time together at home, Grande and Gomez had the chance to get to know each other on a deeper level and an accelerated timeline. The couple is happy, Grande's mom is happy, and they've managed to create some happiness out of the madness of 2020.
