Ariana Grande Parents and Background
Sometime when you consider the lifestyle of celebrities, you’d most likely think that they are aliens who don’t have families to speak of in the world. But aliens only exist in the movies written and acted by the same celebrities. The funny thing is that we claim to know our stars but when we are asked about their parents and backgrounds we become dumbfounded. It should not be so.
If you are a fan of a particular celebrity or star then you have to know everything about them and in detail. In the case of Ariana Grande, the information about her parents and background is readily available all over the internet but here you will find it in a simplified manner to make it more understandable and memorable. Whatever you choose to do with the information is entirely your own prerogative.
Facts about Ariana Grande’s Parents
This Nickelodeon star was born Ariana Grande-Butera on June 26, 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida, US. She was born to Joan Grande who was at the time the chief executive of telephone and alarm System Company named Hose-McCann Communications, and a Mr. Edward Grande who was at the time the owner of a graphics design firm in Boca Raton. From all purposes and intentions the two were doing well financially.
Joan Grande actually became pregnant with Ariana when she was still living in New York but moved to Florida with the pregnancy and put to birth there. That is why the celebrity is said to have been born in Florida. The star says that her parents separated when she about 8 or 9 years of age. The reasons for the separation are not clear but you know all about the fate of most American romantic relationships.
Ariana seems to enjoy a close relationship with her mother. She has in several occasions mentioned how much she loves her. She has also been seen walking with her several times side-by-side. From their body language, it is clear to see that close relationship does exist. She has even asserted that her mom is hard-working and inspired her to be who she currently is. She has used superfluous words to describe her mother including words like most generous, most beautiful and best mother in the world. This is a show of just how important she considers he mother in her life.

Her father, Edward Grande Butera is very proud of her daughter and this is shown by the many tweets he makes of her on twitter. He is the owner and founder of IBI Designs, Inc. and he is an experienced photographer, artist and graphic designer. Ariana confesses her lover for her father and she even gave her dad a signed picture that says “I love your six times”. Eddie has a shirt with Ariana’s name embroidered on it and said he was looking for an opportunity to go out with her to teach her some fishing.
As you can learn from that discussion, it is obvious that Ariana shares a good and healthy relationship with both of her biological parents. This is great considering the fact that they separated when she was just a young girl. The father has maintained contact with the daughter something most fathers who separate from the mother of their children find difficult to do. Ariana is also doing her part very well. It appears she loves both her parents but she tends to love the mother more. This is explainable since she is a woman but it may also mean other things.
Ariana Grande’s Background
I bet you are asking yourself where the unusual names of this celebrity came from. The name was originally inspired by Princes Oriana from the Cartoon character Felix the Cat’. You will remember that her father is a graphics designer which is probably why he convinced his wife of the name to give their daughter. The singer is of Italian origin.
Although she was born a Roman Catholic, she abandoned Catholicism during the time of Pope Benedict citing her opposition to the church’s stance on homosexuality. She is now a stanch follower of Kabbalah teachings since she was the age of twelve years or even earlier, along with her brother Frankie (who is well-known to be gay). The followers of Kabbalah teachings believe that “the basis lies in the idea that if you are kind to others, good things will follow you.
