The Truth About Ariana Grande's Boyfriend

Ariana Grande has not been shy about showing off her boyfriends (or her tattoos dedicated to them) in the past (via Women's Health). But after a very public break up with ex-fiance and Saturday Night Live Personality, Pete Davidson, and the shocking death-by-overdose of her former beau, the rapper Mac Miller, you'll forgive her if she's kept her latest flame under wraps.  

Sources have now told Us Weekly that Grande and her new boyfriend have "fallen madly in love." Other sources confirm that are spending "quality time together" quarantining in Los Angeles (via ET).  So, forgive us if we're as curious as Grande is cautious. 

We're talking about Dalton Gomez, of course. He's not a celebrity himself, but he certainly schmoozes with them. The heavily tattooed and soccer-playing realtor was born in Southern California and has been in the Luxury Real Estate Market for at five years (via Aaron Kirman Group and Instagram). That's impressive for a man that Ariana Grande fans have pinned at between 24 or 25 years old, based on a yearbook photo

Gomez has done well for himself. He's currently representing a multi-million dollar Malibu property owned by three-time Olympic gold medalist, the snowboarder and skateboarder Shaun White (via Women's Health). And, back in 2019, he sold a $7.5 million home for Ariana Grande's music attorney, Aaron Rosenberg, to the Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar (i.e. Rajesh Koothrappali) (via Los Angeles Times). Did you catch the connection? We sure did. 

How long have Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez been dating?

As Women's Health pointed out, Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez went "music video official" when Grande and Justin Bieber released their collab, "Stuck With U." That was in early May 2020. And it wasn't until late May that Grande Instagrammed about her and Gomez's relationship (via Elle). 

The couple may not have been ready to face social media until May, but a TMZ report speculates that, in reality, they'd been out (and making out) at Bar Louie in Northridge, CA in public since shortly before Valentine's Day (via TMZ and People). We like to think they snacked on the bar's Bavarian pretzels and sipped on spiked sangrias, but what do we know. In any case, by late March, a source had confirmed to TMZ that the two had been seeing each other for "several months," putting the beginning of their relationships around January 2020. 

Whenever they started dating, there's no denying that the couple is tight now. Dalton's Instagram is filled with pictures of the two together. "Happy Birthday to the best person in this world!" he wrote to Grande on June 26. Grande reciprocated on her August 7 virtual birthday card to Dalton, "hbd to my baby my best friend my fav part of all the days :) i love u," she gushed.
