All donut-gate jokes and new fragrance announcements aside, Ariana Grande and her new boyfriend Ricky Alvarez – who also just so happens to be one of her dancers – are apparently so happy with each other that they’ve probably been skipping in fields of daisies and humming love songs 24/7.
They’re really, really happy. OK?
News of Ari’s new beau surfaced when the whole donut licking fiasco went down and the partners in crime were caught on surveillance camera sneaking a little smooch.
Now one of those sneaky source types has been spilling some details on the new couple’s budding romance, telling E! News that they ‘couldn’t be happier’.
“She and Ricky have gotten pretty close and they are officially a couple,” said the insider. “They are keeping their relationship on the down low though and trying to be as private as they can.
“The way the two act around each other is very affectionate. You can tell Ricky really cares about her.”
Right, so I’m just curious about when do I get to become an international popstar and date our backup dancer?
Are Arianators on Twitter shipping Rickiana into infinity? Here’s what some of them say…
