A personal high point and one of the most precious moments for the bride, according to Vogue. One of the first people to reveal Dalton and Ariana’s engagement was Joan Grande, Ariana’s mother.

Where was Ariana Grande born? Ethnicity, Nationality, Family
Joan Grande and Edward Butera welcomed Ariana Grande into the world on June 26, 1993. While Edward had a design firm in Florida, Joan served as the CEO of Hose-McCann Communications. After a turbulent marriage, Joan and Edward decided to get divorced in 2003. When Grande’s parents split up, she was almost ten.
Although Grande and her parents remained close, in 2013 she had a falling out with her father. She discussed her relationship with her father in an interview with Seventeen in 2014. She stated to the media:
Although it’s personal, it took place last year. I struggled for so long to accept it. I got there by accepting that my dad makes up half of me and that many of my characteristics are inherited from him.
For a very long time, I didn’t like the fact that my father contributed so much to who I am now. I had to come to terms with the fact that you can love someone even if you don’t get along with them.
Ariana claimed in a 2016 interview with Kiss FM that she was closer to her mother than her father and that since he lived in Florida, she never got to visit him.
Ariana and her parents spent together for the first time in nearly two decades
Ariana’s father and she initially showed signs of communication in 2017 when she wished him a happy Father’s Day. She hoped that her parents would one day put their disagreements aside in the song “thank u, next” Grande crooned:
One day, I’ll go down the aisle while holding my mother’s hand and thanking my father.
Because of the drama, she developed. Only really want to do it once. I’m going to make that crap last. If something bad happens, at least this song is a hit.
When Ariana shared a selfie of the three of them on Thanksgiving Day, she said that she and her parents had made up. Ariana and her parents celebrated Thanksgiving together for the first time in 18 years. Edward and Joan saw Ariana sing live in one of her gigs in December 2019.
On January 26, Ariana’s parents went to the 2020 Grammy Awards with their daughter. Grande modified the song’s lyrics throughout her performance to reflect her new relationship with her father. I’ll be praising my dad since he’s extremely amazing, she sang in the song.
