Pop star Ariana Grande is engaged to luxury real estate agent Dalton Gomez, she announced on Instagram on Sunday.
She shared photos of herself with Mr. Gomez (and a diamond and pearl ring) and wrote her post: “Forever and more.”
Ms Grande had pointed out her relationship with Mr Gomez last year and put photos with him in piles of pictures that were shared on Instagram.
A music video for their collaboration with Justin Bieber on “Stuck With U,” a nod to the quarantine, was the couple’s public debut this spring with a clip of Ms. Grande and Mr. Gomez dancing.
Along with his “unapologetic and sometimes humorous libidinal lyrics,” Ms. Grande’s most recent album, “Positions,” which was released in the fall, has “occasional slip-ups of vulnerability that reveal the vertigo and fear of new love,” The New York Times wrote in his review.
Mr. Gomez, a Los Angeles estate agent with Aaron Kirman Group, was born and raised in Southern California according to his profile on the agency’s website. He has worked in luxury real estate for five years overseeing sales of homes such as Pierre Koenig’s Los Angeles case study # 21, which served as the set for Charmed.
Shortly after the release of Ms. Grande’s 2018 album, Sweetener, her ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, died of an accidental overdose.
He worked with Ms. Grande on her hit “The Way” in 2013.
“I’ve adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen, and I always will,” she said of Mr. Miller in a post on Instagram following his death.
At the time of Mr. Miller’s death, she was only a few months engaged to comedian Pete Davidson. Ms. Grande announced her engagement shortly thereafter.
Mr. Davidson attributed their separation to the death of Mr. Miller and told radio host Charlamagne Tha God in an interview: “I knew pretty well that it was over after that.”
In December 2018, Mr Davidson shared a disturbing post on Instagram: “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” he wrote.
A police officer checked him out at the Manhattan studios of “Saturday Night Live,” where he is an actor, and NBC contacted the police department to say he was fine, police said at the time.
In the deleted post he said, “I’m doing my best to stay here for you, but I don’t really know how much longer I can hold out. I was just trying to help people. Remember, I told you. “
Ms. Grande, 27, was known as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon show “Victorious,” which aired from 2010-13, but it was her music career that earned her international renown. Her song “Positions” reached number 1 on the Billboard Global 200.
