Ariana Grande and her boyfriend, Ethan Slater are deep-rooted in their love more than ever.

A source spilled the beans to Entertainment Tonight on Friday regarding the ever-growing romance of the Wicked co-stars, who started dating last year.

"Ariana and Ethan are spending more and more time together. They have become more comfortable with the idea of their relationship being more public," the insider revealed.

Describing the Bang Bang hitmaker’s romantic involvement with Slater, 31, as "a natural connection," the source continued, "Things are positive and they’re very close…There’s no pressure to be anyone that they’re not."

"They are focused on the here and now and excited to continue to see where their relationship goes and watch it blossom," they added.

In December 2023, days before Christmas, the 30-year-old pop icon treated her fans with a rare sighting of her stepping out with new beau.

The two were accompanied by 7 Rings singer's father, Ed Butera and a friend for the dinner night.

Grande and Slater both opted for an all-black ensemble for their dinner date with family.

The Everyday crooner sported a black miniskirt over sheer tights coupled with a matching top adorned with sleeves descended into fur cuffs.

She accessorized her look with a black purse and dainty earrings and carried a coat on her arm.

Grande completed her look with minimal makeup, red nail paint, and black pointy heels.

Meanwhile, Slater, known for his role in the SpongeBob SquarePants musical, donned a zip-up hoodie paired with matching trousers and shoes.

Before confirming her relationship with the Drama Desk Award winner, Grande filed for divorce from former husband, Dalton Gomez in July 2023, two years after exchanging vows.
