Ariana took birth in New York, as her parents relocated to Florida just before she was born.

Ariana’s robust Role Models:

They are non-other than her parents whom she loves, respects and follows. She is very proud of the success of her mother. Joan Grande is a CEO of a company and has always been a strong proficient role model for her daughter to follow. She also has looked up to her father, Edward Butera, who is a very prosperous graphic designer.  This is the reason why she sometimes goes by a hyphenated last name, as Ariana Grande-Butera, in order to pay honour to both the role models in her life.

Family loving Cartoons:

It was a decision from her parent to name her Arians after falling in love with the character Princess Oriana in Felix the Cat, an old comedy cartoon. Although she normally goes by her full first name, Ariana, she does additionally take the nickname as Ari.

Halloween with family from childhood:
