Honorary Mancunian Ariana Grande and now fiance, Dalton Gomez are set to tie the knot after the singer announced the engagement in a series of Instagram posts.
The couple who debuted their romance in Ariana’s Stuck With You music video (with Justin Bieber) have been dating for just shy of a year, and quarantined together during the COVID pandemic.

The pair met when Ariana was looking for a new home just shy of the Los Angeles area.
Dalton, an estate agent who worked at the luxury real estate firm, was enlisted to help with Ariana asking her team to set up a meeting between the pair afterwards.
The engagement has been well supported by Ariana’s mother Joan and brother Frankie, who both tweeted their love and support for the couple.
It appears Gomez definitely has the approval of Joan as she tweeted: “I am so excited to welcome Dalton Gomez into our family!”
