When Ariana Grande started dating Los Angeles real estate agent Dalton Gomez in January, she tried a different approach with their romance: Keeping it private and off Instagram. In March, the singer made a bold choice secretly: To start quarantining with her boyfriend of three months, moving from New York City to Los Angeles to be with him. They're engaged now, and People got details about how Grande realized Gomez was truly the man she wanted to marry.
Gomez and Grande had been spending time at Grande's New York City home when the coronavirus pandemic first began getting serious, the outlet reported. She decided to go back with Gomez to Los Angeles, where he worked, because "she realized he is very special." Grande even bought a home there several months into quarantining with Gomez.
"It was getting tricky for them to see each other, so she decided to take her chance," the source continued. "She purchased a house in the Hollywood Hills in June and never looked back. They are incredibly happy."
The insider added that "Dalton is a great guy. He is very focused on work and low-key. He likes keeping his relationship with Ari private. They have been able to get to know each other in peace."
News of Gomez and Grande dating first broke in March, although the couple was first seen together in February. Indications that they were getting serious first surfaced in August when a source told Us Weekly that “Ariana sees something different in Dalton that she has never seen before in guys she has previously dated." The source added that they have "fallen madly in love with each other."
“He is the type of guy she has been looking for,” the source said. “He’s very protective of her, will go out of his way for her, and does little things that are chivalrous. Dalton will go above and beyond to meet her needs.”
Grande has since shared more glimpses of her life with Gomez on Instagram, including shots of their first Christmas together.
She announced their engagement on December 20, writing, "forever n then some."
