Ariana Grande Is Engaged & As If I Wasn’t A Mess Before, Apparently The Ring Is From Her Grandpa

“forever n then some” = how long I’ll be crying for

Congratulations and well wishes are in order for one soon-to-be-Mrs Ariana Grande and her boyfriend Dalton Gomez. The couple announced via Instagram that they’re engaged!

Grande posted a bunch of lovey-dovey cuddly pictures of her and her new fiancé, with the caption “forever n then some”.

It’s the good news that we really needed to salvage this year from hell.

Messages fo love, support, and congratulations came in thick and fast; beginning with the seal of approval from Grande’s mother, Joan.

Of course, Ariana’s fans were sent into a tailspin over the news, with reactions split between “wtf I was supposed to marry her” and “go off queen”. But the general consensus was “I’m a blubbering mess”.

It’s believed the Grammy award winner began dating the real estate agent back in January, when Gomez sold Ariana her house. Can someone say meet cute?

That’s the stuff of rom-coms right there.

The couple’s first public ‘debut’ of sorts was a lightning fast cameo (with Gomez wearing a hood, to keep the mystery alive) in the ‘Stuck with U’ music video way back in May.

Am I crying again? Maybe. Look at how cute they are!

And in classic Twitter fashion, rumours have started to swirl around the engagement – particularly the massive (but simple) pearl and diamond ring Grande flashed in the announcement.

Fans are led to believe that the pearl leaning against the huge oval-cut diamond could be the same pearl from one of her her late grandfather’s tie pins. The pearl was set into a gold ring by Grande’s Nonna and gifted to the singer “to protect her”.

Now, these rumours have neither been confirmed or denied by Ariana, Dalton, or the Grande or Gomez family/friends/associates (and I will not trust an anonymous ‘close’ source). But it’s fun to hypothesise and indulge the fan’s theories.

Regardless of where the ring is from, this is the best news I’ve heard all 2020.

Congratulations Ariana and Dalton!
