Nothing says happily ever after like making your partner sign a prenuptial agreement in case it all goes down hill.
Ariana Grande's secret wedding with new hubby Dalton Gomez was a surprise to the world, but nothing about their commitment to each other was unexpected behind the scenes. The pop star's lawyers had apparently been straightening out a prenuptial agreement for months.
“While the wedding seemed very last minute in her backyard with just close family and friends, legally nothing was left to the last minute,” an insider exclusively told Radar. “Ariana’s lawyers were very involved in insisting that the groom signed an iron-clad pre-nuptial agreement."
Despite Gomez having the support of Grande's family, her mom and brother still insisted she made sure to protect her assets. "Ariana’s brother Frankie and her mom are very protective over her," the source explained. "They both love and trust Dalton, but even so they would be stupid to not want her to get a prenup.
“Let’s be honest, when someone is worth over $150 million you have every right to be suspicious," the insider candidly added.
After all the legal documents were dealt with, Grande and the real estate agent, 25, were able to enjoy their "tiny and intimate" ceremony at her Montecito, Calif., mansion. With less than 20 close friends and family, the lovebirds relished in their romantic day surrounded by hundreds of white florals, said the source.
OK! reported that the 27-year-old and her handsome hunk tied the knot over the weekend after being engaged for five months. "The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn't be happier," a spokesperson for the singer dished, confirming the happy news.
An insider explained that Grande and Gomez were eager to get married since both their "schedules are picking up and neither wanted to wait. They both agreed there was no point in waiting."
In December, the "7 rings" crooner announced their engagement by sharing a photo of her gorgeous diamond ring to Instagram alongside adorable snaps of the duo. The lovebirds first debuted their relationship last May with a clip of them slow dancing together for her and Justin Bieber's "Stuck With U" music video.
Despite Grande's family being on board with her happily ever after, ex Pete Davidson is also "happy that she is happy and he wishes her the best," a source said. The comedian — who had a whirlwind romance with Grande, ending their relationship less than five months after they got engaged in 2018 — knew she had been dreaming of walking down the aisle for a long time and is happy she was finally able to do so, OK! learned.
