Ariana Grande has announced her engagement to Dalton Gomez, her luxury real-estate agent partner.

The Rain on Me singer took to Instagram to announce the news, sharing photos of herself and Gomez, alongside a close-up shot of her ring.

Grande, 27, captioned the photos: "Forever n then some."

The singer’s mother, Joan Grande, congratulated the couple on Twitter, saying she was excited to welcome Gomez to the family.

"Ariana, I love you and Dalton so much! Here’s to happily ever after!" she wrote.

The ring is made up of a sizeable oval diamond, set beside an individual pearl on a simple gold band.

The singer's fans believe that the ring may have an extra-special sentimental value. They have suggested that the pearl came from a ring the singer's grandmother had made for her back in 2014, which included the pearl from her grandfather's tie pin.

At the time, the singer tweeted, "[My grandmother] says he told her in a dream it'd protect me."

People magazine reported Grande and Gomez started dating earlier this year.

Grande released her latest studio album, Positions, in November. On Monday, Netflix will release a behind-the-scenes film on her Sweetener world tour, titled excuse me, i love you.

She was previously engaged to Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson in 2018, but they ended their relationship later that year.
