We've known about Ariana and Ethan's relationship since rumors emerged they were dating, following Ariana's separation from ex-husband Dalton Gomez. Ethan — who was also married, and had recently welcomed a child with his ex-wife Lilly Jay — also filed for divorce after the rumors started circulating.

Lilly also gave her thoughts on the whole ordeal. Spoiler alert: she wasn't happy!

Naturally, periods of public awkwardness took place — like learning that the two ex-couples had gone on double dates before Ariana and Ethan started seeing each other. There were also reports that Ariana was understandably giving Ethan "some space" to deal with how the situation impacted his family.

They've also been seen in public and reportedly moved in together amidst early attempts at talking about the situation in public. Ethan blanked on a photographer who asked about co-parenting, while Ariana issued an IG statement about her "challenging" 2023 and spoke out about the public scrutiny her romantic life has received.

"There's an insatiable frustration, inexplicable hellish feeling, watching people misunderstand the people you love," she told Zach Sang last month.

And if a new Entertainment Tonight report is to be believed, Ariana and Ethan are still going strong. "Ariana is feeling great in general and super proud of her new album," the source tells the publication.
