Where did Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez secretly marry? Singer bought the $6.75M home from Ellen DeGeneres
In 2020, when Grande was on a real estate spending spree, she bought the Montecito house for $6.75 million, reportedly less than a month after she bought a brand-new Hollywood Hills mansion for $13.7 million
In a "tiny and intimate" ceremony, Ariana Grande secretly married her real estate agent boyfriend Dalton Gomez at her Montecito, California, home over the weekend. The couple got engaged in December after meeting in early 2020, tying the knot in a ceremony of fewer than 20 people.
The pop icon's rep confirmed the marriage saying, "The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier." The Montecito home was the perfect place for the couple to take this new step as they "spend a lot of time there".
A source reportedly told People that the couple decided to choose Grande’s multimillion-dollar Montecito home as the venue for the wedding as it was just the ideal location. The house is set among the trees in the luxurious celebrity neighborhood where the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle live. “It seems only natural that they would get married at Ari’s beautiful and historic house,” the source added.
In 2020, when Grande was on a real estate spending spree, she bought the Montecito house for $6.75 million, reportedly less than a month after she bought a brand-new Hollywood Hills mansion for $13.7 million.
The unique 5,500-square-foot English Tudor-style home in Montecito, which is known as the Porter House, was previously owned by celeb couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. The residence is reportedly made up of two authentic English Tudor structures that date back to the mid-1700s and were originally built in Surrey, England. It is a historic home in Montecito and features 5,500 square feet of living space, though there are only two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, as well as two powder rooms.
According to a report in Dirt.com, DeGeneres and de Rossi had purchased the house in January 2020 for about $3.6 million. Three months later, after a quick renovation project undertaken by her team of expert designers, the place was back on the market. Grande reportedly paid nearly the full asking price - a $3 million profit for the sellers before taxes, real estate fees and the not-inconsiderable remodel costs.
According to Variety, listing details also make mention of a workshop, a gym space, a full basement, and a three-car garage with its own restroom.
Grande went official with her relationship with Gomez in the video for her quarantine anthem with Justin Bieber called ‘Stuck With U’. Towards the end of the video, Grande was spotted hugging, dancing, and eventually kissing Gomez, making their romance official to the world.
At the time, a source had said, "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." They were quarantining together. "Dalton and Ariana are in Los Angeles together during quarantine, and it has been a great opportunity for them to spend quality time together," the source added.
