Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes – it’s official!
Earlier today, Sykes confirmed the exciting (and unsurprising) news on Twitter, writing: “So, I guess it’s obvious now … thanks to everyone who is being so lovely. I’m so happy.”

The star ended his tweet with the hashtags “#butweareterrified #pleasedontkillme #orariana,” obviously feeling a little bit wary about how he and his new girlfriend’s fans may react to the news.
“We hesitated saying anything as people can be a bit insensitive,” added ‘The Way’ singer shortly afterwards. “But thank u we value all of your happiness, thank you for valuing ours :)”

There has been intense speculation surrounding Ariana and Nathan’s relationship since they teamed up on ‘The Mortal Instruments’ soundtrack duet, ‘Almost Is Never Enough,’ but the pair have previously remained coy when quizzed about their romance.
“Here's the thing. The thing about it is that we're both twenty years old and we're trying to figure it out, and we're in the public eye so it's like - it's hard for us to live our lives and do what we're doing when we don't even, you know what I mean?” the ‘Sam & Cat’ starlet dished on the Mojo in the Morning radio show a few weeks ago.
“We're not ready to answer the question yet. When there's something to be said, we will say it. We’re both really open and honest with our fans and everybody.”
