Ariana Grande just soft launched her relationship with Ethan Slater on her social media.

Nearly a year after sparking their romance, the 30-year-old popstar finally debuted her beau to her Instagram this past week.


As the lovebirds promote their upcoming two-part musical, Wicked, Grande has been actively sharing updates on her social media, offering glimpses into the promotional events leading up to the release.

One such post, shared on April 11, featured a snapshot of the entire cast taking a backstage selfie at CinemaCon last week. The photo included Cynthia Erivo, Jeff Goldblum, Jonathan Bailey, Michelle Yeoh, Grande, and, of course, Slater.

This marked the first time Grande publicly featured Slater on her social media.

Building on this momentum, she shared another Instagram post on Wednesday, April 17, featuring a carousel of images, including a black and white photo of her walking arm-in-arm with Slater and Bailey.

She also didn’t shy away from tagging Slater in all posts.

On his end, Slater, 31, has yet to feature Grande on his social media accounts.

Notably, the comments under Grande’s posts featuring Slater, as well as Grande's recent posts, have been limited, likely due to the backlash Grande has faced online amid her new relationship.

Some spectators have accused her of being a "homewrecker" in relation to Slater's ex-wife Lilly Jay and their one-year-old child.
