Over the weekend, Ariana Grande celebrated her 28th birthday, a day which she spent with her new husband, Dalton Gomez.
Though the singer usually opts to keep her relationship offline—something Gomez reportedly encouraged when he met her—Grande gave her followers a small look into her romance on her special day.
The birthday girl posted a video of her and Gomez kissing to her Instagram Stories, captioning the clip, “A bday baby. deeply thankful for so much love.”

On her Instagram grid, Grande shared a baby photo of herself, writing, “hbd tiny, i am taking care of you !”
After just over a year of dating, Grande and Gomez secretly wed on May 15, 2021. Grande later released images of the pair’s nuptials, which took place at her home, to Instagram.
Entertainment Tonight reported earlier this month that after the couple wed, Grande and Gomez became more comfortable sharing their love publicly. “Ariana and Dalton felt like before they were married they couldn’t be as open about their relationship without it being scrutinized in the media and now they feel way more at ease,” the outlet’s source said. “They have plans to travel more together and feel closer than ever.”
The source added that “Ariana and Dalton have really been enjoying married life,” and that Grande is really happy in her relationship. “Ariana is happy and feels very relaxed. She feels like she is entering a new chapter of life and is excited to see where it goes.”
Furthermore, Grande and Gomez particularly like “making unified decisions,” now that they’re married. “Ariana is Dalton’s first priority in everything that they do and he really values her and shows it,” the source said. “Ariana loves that Dalton is super chill and how understanding he is of her.”
