Ariana Grande’s two favorite people in the whole world, her boyfriend Big Sean and her brother Frankie, shared a bonding moment backstage following the Kid’s Choice Awards over the weekend.
Big Sean posted a pic of himself hanging out with Ariana’s older brother to his Instagram account on Saturday. The caption read, “Good seein u mane! I hope yall had good time ragin tonight @ da show!”
Ariana Grande has famously stood by her brother Frankie, a Big Brother alum, so it’s nice to see him getting along with his sister’s main squeeze. Frankie Grande has also steadfastly supported Ariana despite rumors that she was becoming a diva, as reported by Inqusitr.
Frankie told Access Hollywood late last year how proud he is of her sister’s accomplishments. “She is one of the most genuine, talented and hardworking people I have ever seen. I feel like not only has she earned her success, but she so hard working. I’m so proud,” he said.
The eldest Grande also made it known he’s always got her back.
“I look out for her for sure. There’s a big age difference and I feel like I have to take care of her and often that has become my role in her life. Especially with all of this and growing up and becoming a pop star, it was very trying for our family. We definitely had to stick together and make it work.”
Frankie also teased a possible collaboration with his sister while on the red carpet Saturday. According to Entertainment Tonight, when asked if he had plans of releasing some music of his own, Grande remained coy.
“Without putting too fine a point on it,” he said, “this summer.” His response automatically begged the next question of whether his sister Ariana would possibly make an appearance on the record. “I mean, that would obviously be a dream come true,” he said. “She’s on tour now…. So, we’ll see! I mean, we’re really close so it could happen.”
Speaking of said tour, Ariana is in the middle of her first full-fledged arena tour in support of her smash hit album My Everything. Highlights thus far have included an emotional send off to her late grandfather and even a near death experience on opening night.
She’s also managed to connect with Big Sean on a number of occasions throughout the tour, both in person and in spirit. Just last month Big Sean and Ariana shared a kiss during a surprise duet at the Detroit leg of Grande’s Honeymoon Tour, according to People.
