The ink on Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez's marriage license is barely dry. But a source tells OK! that the newlyweds — who recently tied the knot in a hush-hush ceremony at their Montecito, Calif., home — already have big plans for their future.
"They're itching to have a baby," says the source, adding that although the pop star and the real estate agent may be young (she's 27 and he's 25), they both feel ready.
"Dalton's very mature for his age and has a strong work ethic," explains the source. "Ariana thinks he'll be a great dad. He's a wonderful person and so genuine."
Friends believe Grande will be a great mom too. "She loves kids and always makes time to chat with her young fans," the source says of the Grammy winner. "She grew up in the spotlight and has experienced the downside of fame as well, but it's only made her more caring and empathetic. She has such a big heart."
While some fear that the pair is moving too fast — they began dating in early 2020 and got engaged this past December — friends have no doubt they're in it for keeps.
"Ariana's been in enough relationships to know what's real and what isn't, and Dalton is the one," notes the source. "They make a good couple because they put each other first."
As OK! previously reported, Grande took to the 'gram on Wednesday, May 26, to share exclusive snaps of the wedding. The pop star posted a series of pics from her big day, which took place in the backyard of her Montecito, Calif., home on May 15. In the collection of photos, spread over three posts, the newlyweds are seen kissing, and Grande is smiling ear-to-ear in one sweet snap.
Fans also got a first glimpse of Grande's wedding dress. The "Positions" singer walked down the isle in a simple satin strapless column gown with bustier bodice and low-draped back. She also added a poofy veil with a bow, drop earrings and kept her makeup fresh and natural.
In the photos, Grande seems to be sporting her new wedding band, which her real estate agent love had a very "hands-on" approach in helping design. Gomez reportedly used expert jewelry designer Jack Solow, who also crafted the princess of pop’s one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
