The last time when Ariana was publicly seen wearing her wedding ring was in April.

The pair maintained a very low-key relationship, as Dalton even deleted his private Instagram account in April. Not only that, but Ariana also kept Dalton off of her personal social media accounts, as only one post of the two of them kissing remains on her Instagram from September 2022. 

Ariana and Dalton previously became the subject of split rumors in August 2022 when the Nickelodeon alum wasn’t sporting her ring in a TikTok makeup tutorial video. However, Ariana was quick to shut down any speculation of a separation by noting, “I’m just not wearing my ring, it’s getting cleaned. I’m not getting a divorce, so before you start, don’t.” 

After their relationship grew serious by mid-2020, a source told Us Weekly that August how different Dalton was treating Ariana in comparison to her former high-profile relationships, some of which included Pete Davidson and Big Sean. 

“Ariana sees something different in Dalton that she has never seen before in guys she has previously dated,” the insider said at the time. “He is the type of guy she has been looking for. 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.”

The source added that after the real estate agent assisted Ariana in finding a new home outside of Los Angeles, she and Dalton had “fallen madly in love with each other.” 

As for how they quickly clicked ahead of their whirlwind December 2020 engagement, the insider noted that Dalton “shares similar values that she and her family have.”
