Following her split from Tom Sandoval in March 2023, Ariana has embarked on a new relationship with fitness trainer Daniel Wai.

Ariana has previously opened up about how she was drawn to Daniel's "positivity and support," and she just shared an adorable update on his plans to cheer her on during the DWTS finale. Check out what Ariana just exclusively revealed to The Daily Dish by scrolling below.

Ariana Madix Shares an Update on Her Boyfriend, Daniel Wai

The Something About Her co-owner has officially made it to the Dancing with the Stars finale, and she'll be performing her final two dances in front of an audience on the same day that her book, Single AF Cocktails, will be released, coincidentally. 

Ariana has gotten lots of support from her friends, family, and castmates during her run on the dancing series, and she confirmed that her boyfriend, Daniel, will be in the audience during the final episode.

"Well, he will be at the finale, and he's definitely someone who, on those show days, he really makes sure that I don't have anything to worry about," she told The Daily Dish.

Back in October, when Ariana was in the throes of rehearsing for her dance gig, she opened up about some of Daniel's best qualities.

"He sacrifices his sleep and time to help me with anything I need, and then he takes a red-eye back and goes straight to work," she said during a chat with Us Weekly about how he's been there for her. "He'll clean up things that are left out and [does] little things you don’t really think about."

Once Ariana learns her fate regarding the highly after Mirror Ball Trophy, she'll be heading out on a mini-book tour before celebrating an unplugged Christmas. 

Ariana Madix Reflects on an "Insane" Year

In addition to feeling the support from Daniel, Ariana is also grateful for all of the love she's gotten from fans and her nearest and dearest as she's navigated the year.

"I just want to say that this year has been really insane for me," she told The Daily Dish. "Obviously many highs and many lows, and I hope that everyone knows who has ever said a kind word to me or about me that I see them and I'm here for them, too."
