Now that they are engaged to be married, I think it’s time to take a look back at Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez’s relationship timeline. If you haven’t been keeping up with the pop star and her real estate mogul husband-to-be, I don’t blame you. This relationship got serious REAL quick. And, like, it doesn’t help that they chose 2020 of all years to get this serious. No matter how much you love Grande, it’s hard to keep up with her love life when there’s an election, a pandemic, and about a million other stressful things distracting you.
So, let me catch you up on what’s been going on between them. A more detailed timeline can be found below but the TL;DR version is that the world didn’t really know anything about Grande and Gomez until they were spotted making out at a bar in February 2020. Then, a source claimed they had reportedly been dating since January. By March, they were reportedly quarantining together. In May their relationship was officially confirmed when Gomez made an appearance in Grande and Justin Bieber’s "Stuck With U" music video. He’s made a few stints on her Instagram since then and maybe inspired a few songs on her Positions album, which came out in October. Aaand, for the grand finale, the two shocked the world by announcing their engagement in December.
It’s a whirlwind, right? Process it step-by-step below.
January: They reportedly start dating.
The public didn’t find out about their relationship until months later, but the pair apparently first connected back in January. In March, a source reportedly told People that Grande was "into" Gomez and that the two had been seeing each other for two months.
February: They’re spotted out together.
Stars, they’re just like us! On Feb. 11, TMZ published what just may be their best headline yet: "ARIANA GRANDE MAKES OUT WITH RANDO AT A BAR…"
Considering the fact that she has a voice of an angel, a roster of A-list exes, a Grammy, and millions in the bank, I wouldn’t quite put Grande in the "relatable" category. Buuuut making out with a rando at a bar? Extremely relatable.
The "rando" in question, of course, turned out to to be Gomez. The two were caught making out on camera while out with friends at Louie’s, a gastropub in Los Angeles’ Northridge area.
"We’re told she rolled into the gastropub around 1 AM with a crew of friends in tow, including this gent you see here right next to her in the booth," TMZ reported at the time. "They popped in, sat down for a bit, and besides the water we’re told AG wanted … she was just all in on this guy’s face."
March: TMZ reveals they’re in quarantine together.
On March 25, TMZ revealed that the mystery man in the make-out video they released back in February was Gomez. In the same article, they also noted that Grande had been low-key featuring Gomez in a few of her quarantine Instagram Stories. While she never showed his face, TMZ claimed Gomez was the mystery dude who seemed to be quarantining with her based on social media.
May: He makes an appearance in the "Stuck With U" video.
By May, it was official. Gomez was definitely the dude quarantining with Grande because she chose to feature a cute clip of them in the music video for the song "Stuck With U" she created with Justin Bieber.
Watch it for yourself here and prepare to weep:
June: They go Instagram official.
Yes, she’d been low-key teasing him in Instagram Stories since March, but Grande didn’t fully go Instagram official with Gomez until June. And she did it in the most casual way ever by including it in a series of random photos and videos she posted alongside the caption, "almost 27 :)."
The couple shot is casually thrown in as the seventh image in the series of mostly just photos and videos of Grande and her dogs.
August: She gushes about him on his b-day.
On Aug. 7, in honor of Gomez’s birthday, Grande gave fans a glimpse into her ultra private relationship with the realtor by posting a series of sweet videos and photos of them throughout their relationship.
The post was in honor of Gomez’s birthday and she penned a sweet caption for her boo to go along with it:
October: "Positions" album seems to feature more gushing.
While she never mentioned him by name, fans theorized some songs from her new album Positions were inspired by Grande’s relationship with Gomez.
December: They’re engaged!
Grande shocked the world by announcing she and Gomez are engaged on Dec. 21. She made the announcement on Instagram by posting a series of photos, some of which featured her beautiful engagement ring, alongside the caption: "forever n then some."
Can’t wait to watch the rest of their timeline unfold!
