Ariana Grande is saying "thank u, next" to 26. The singer celebrates her 27th birthday Friday.
She commemorated the occasion with an early birthday Instagram post Thursday, captioning a series of photos, "Almost 27 :)"
One of those photos just so happened to show her cuddling poolside with her new beau, Dalton Gomez, marking the first time she's posted an Instagram photo of him since March, when they were rumored to have begun dating.
Gomez, a California real estate agent, did appear with Grande briefly in the music video for her duet with Justin Bieber, "Stuck with U." They seemingly confirmed their relationship by hugging, kissing and dancing in the clip.
He also made a cameo in the Instagram "weather report" video Grande made with Lady Gaga to promote their single, "Rain on Me."
