Another pop couple is born! Nathan Sykes and Ariana Grande have confirmed rumours they're boyfriend and girlfriend. The pair's flirty display in the video for Almost Is Never Enough sparked speculation they might be hooking up and it looks like love really did blossom on set.

Nathan Sykes has reluctantly announced that he's in a relationship with Ariana Grande.

The Wanted singer, who split from Dionne Bromfield in the spring, kept his romance under wraps at first because he was worried about fans' reactions.

But Nathan and Ariana decided to come clean after they were spotted kissing and cuddling at Disneyland over the weekend.

Nathan, 20, tweeted yesterday: "So, I guess it’s obvious now … ? thanks to everyone who is being so lovely. I’m so happy ❤ #butweareterrified #pleasedontkillme #orariana."


Ariana, who split from The Janoskians singer Jai Brooks in August, followed-up Nath's tweet with her own confirmation.

The 20-year-old wrote: "We hesitated saying anything as people can be a bit insensitive but thank u ♡ we value all of your happiness, thank you for valuing ours ."

Nathan and Nickelodeon star Ariana duetted on her recent single Almost Is Never Enough and sparked rumours of romance with their flirting in the track's music video.

Back in August a source told Perez Hilton: "It's very, very new. Nate sends her flowers everyday."​

On duetting with Nathan, Ariana gushed recently: "I saw him perform live on one of the radio shows that we were at together, and I was like, 'Damn, he can sing.'

"This song I think will pleasantly surprise a lot of people. It's very beautiful and very emotional and I love, love, love what Nathan did to it.

"It was a great, great, great surprise."

Though the pair were worried about confirming their romance, it seems to have received a positive reaction on Twitter.

Nathan's band mate Max George was quick to congratulate his friend.

And the fans seem to have similar positive feelings towards the new pair.

One wrote: "@NathanTheWanted @ArianaGrande IM SCREAMING YESSSSSS."

Another said: "@PreciousLikeAri @ArianaGrande @NathanTheWanted this has to be te best tweet on my timeline."

Ahh, young love!
