After Hale said yes, the couple celebrated with their nearest and dearest—including Frankie's sister Ariana Grande and mom Joan Grande—at Dreamscape. The VR venue appears to hold a special place in their hearts. According to People, which was first to break the engagement news, the location was where Frankie and Hale had one of their first dates after meeting in 2019. The two also enjoyed a sweet treat at Sugar Factory.

Ariana congratulated the couple with a sweet message on Instagram."@haleon @frankiegrande I love you both so so much," the singer wrote. "Congratulations to two of the most incredible men I know :)."

And Frankie seemed truly moved by her words. "I am so so beyond happy you were there to celebrate with us!" he replied. "Thank you for being the greatest and for all our long talks and for giving me strength and support to take this next step in my relationship. Thank you for being the best sister ever. I love u."


It's been an exciting few weeks for the Grande family. In addition to Frankie's engagement, Ariana recently tied the knot with Dalton Gomez. The Grammy winner and the real estate broker exchanged vows during a private ceremony at her Montecito, Calif. home in May, with the bride wearing a custom Vera Wang Haute gown.

"There were only about 20 guests, close family and friends," a source close to Ariana told E! News. "It was a beautiful day and very romantic. Everyone is happy for them. It was perfect and just what Ari wanted."
