The engagement buzz was further stoked due to her captioning the images "forever n then some." In less than 50 minutes, the Instagram photos had already garnered more than 3 million likes.
The couple was first linked in March when reports revealed they had been dating a few months. They then appeared in the music video for Grande's collaboration with Justin Bieber, "Stuck With U," released in May. Despite all the craziness of 2020, the pair seemed to be going strong into the fall.
"Ariana is still madly in love with Dalton and is head over heels," a source told E! News in October. "It's a very healthy relationship. They love to be 'normal' and Ari loves that he is very down to earth. He balances her out from the crazy industry she is in. They spend a lot of time hanging out at her house being low-key."
Loads of celebrities have flooded the replies to Grande's engagement post to share their love. Kim Kardashian wrote, "Sooooo happy for you guys!!! [star emoji, ring emoji] Love you!!!" Bieber's wife Hailey Baldwin wrote, "YAYYYYYY!!!! [heart-eye emojis] so happy for you guys!!"
Grande's manager Scooter Braun wrote, "Congrats to these two amazing souls. Ari we love you and could not be happier for you. Dalton, you are a lucky man." Music video director Alfredo Flores wrote, "AHHHH CONGRATS. CAN'T STOP SMILING STILLLLL [heart-eye emojis] LOVE YALL SM!"
This is Grande's second engagement. She became engaged to Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson in June 2018, but the couple broke up in October of that year. There is no word on when the singer and Gomez will tie the knot, as of press time.
