After turbulent romances with fellow performers Graham Phillips, Big Sean, Mac Miller and Pete Davidson, Ariana Grande finally settled down this past weekend and married a man who’s not an actor, rapper or “Saturday Night Live” star.
Grande’s husband, Dalton Gomez, however, has plenty of experience dealing with the rich and famous in his hotshot career as a real estate agent who sells luxury homes in the Los Angeles area. At only 25, he’s considered “an industry titan” who holds “one of the largest rolodexes of A-list buyers,” his agency biography reads.

Gomez’s A-list clients have included Olympian Shaun White and Atlanta Hawks forward Chandler Parsons, who sold his Bel-Air home for $12.35 million.
While it’s not clear how Gomez met the 27-year-old “Stuck With U” singer, a source told E! News that the pair “run in the same circle” of friends and business associates, the Daily Mail reported.
In October 2019, Gomez helped Big Bang Theory star Kunal Nayyar purchase a Los Angeles home for $7.5 million from Aaron Rosenberg, a music attorney whose clients include Grande, Jennifer Lopez and Justin Bieber, the Daily Mail said.
Gomez’s boss, Aaron Kirman, also represented Grande as her real estate agent when she purchased a $13.7-million Hollywood Hills mansion.
Grande and Gomez married at another of her properties this past weekend. Her representatives confirmed to entertainment outlets that they married in a “tiny and intimate” ceremony at her English Tudor-style Montecito home, Elle reported and Yahoo reported.
An insider told E!: “There was a lot of love and everyone is really happy.” TMZ’s sources said there were fewer than 20 guests, and that the nuptials were informal. There was no “ceremony,” according to TMZ, just a casual vow exchange.
Neither Grande nor Gomez have posted news about the wedding, but Grande went public about their engagement in December when she shared a photo of them together and of her diamond-and-pearl engagement ring. “Forever n then some,” Grande captioned the post.
The couple were first seen in public together in February 2020 and quarantined together in the first months of the pandemic, Elle reported. A source told Entertainment Tonight in May 2020 that Grande is “in a really good place” but in no rush to share her private life with (Gomez) on social media.
“Ariana has had some hesitation being so public about her relationship with Dalton as she’s seen how that has worn on her past relationships (such as Pete Davidson and the late Mac Miller),” the source told Entertainment Tonight, adding, “Dalton and Ariana are in Los Angeles together during quarantine, and it has been a great opportunity for them to spend quality time together.”
As for Gomez’s hotshot real estate career, his agency bio also lists some prestigious properties he’s handled in recent years, including iconic mid-century modern homes by famed architects Pierre Koenig and Craig Ellwood, as well as “the only Oscar Niemeyer House in North America.”
The real estate business also has been very lucrative for Gomez, making the San Bernardino native and reported one-time dancer wealthy in his own right, according to the Daily Mail. His net worth is estimated to be as high as $20 million. Of course, that number pales in comparison to Grande’s reported $180 million net worth, the Daily Mail reported.
