Ariana Grande Shared an Extremely Rare Baby Photo in Honor of Her Birthday

There's nothing we love quite like a good throwback, and Ariana Grande just treated us to a great one.

The "Thank U, Next" singer celebrated her 28th birthday yesterday by sharing an extremely rare photo of herself as a baby. The throwback is a zoomed in photo of little Grande's face as she's seen sitting in a bathtub. She captioned the photo with a message to her younger self, saying: “hbd tiny, i am taking care of you !”

Along with the post, the singer received lots of kind birthday wishes from fellow celebs. Some of her former Victorious co-stars sent their love, like Daniella Monet, who said: “ah man this made my heart you sm + HBD.” Meanwhile, Victoria Justice wrote, “Adorable & happy b day!!” Other friends added messages, like Alfredo Flores, who said, “the most precious. happpppppy birthdayyyyyyyy!!! love youuuuuuu.” John Legend commented, “Happy birthday Ari!!”

If 28 is anything like the last year for Grande, then it's bound to be pretty good. Back in October, she released her sixth studio album, Positions, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Then, she just got hired to join The Voice as the highest paid host in the show's history.

But perhaps the most exciting event for Grande was her wedding to Dalton Gomez, the boyfriend who had acted as the inspiration for her Positions album. The two started dating in the beginning of 2020 after Gomez helped Grande look for a house, and then on May 15, the couple secretly got married in a private ceremony at home.

We hope next year is even better for you, Ari. Happy birthday!
