Since moving on from ex Tom Sandoval earlier this year in the wake of his cheating scandal with their former costar Raquel Leviss, the 38-year-old has made multiple trips to the east coast to visit the trainer and Daniel even helped her ring in her latest birthday in June.

In May, Ariana got candid about moving on from the heartbreak and finding love again.

"I'm enjoying myself and I would say I'm very happy right now," the Something About Her co-owner told Today. "I have just been taking things very, very slow and really enjoying myself. And it's just really lovely to interact with someone who is just so nice and kind and lovely and caring."
