Caring brother alert! Ariana Grande hasn’t been the luckiest in love over the last year, but her brother, Frankie Grande, is ready for things to turn around for her. When he spoke with Life & Style exclusively, the 36-year-old let us in on exactly the kind of guy he wants his 25-year-old sister to date … obviously, a total “Prince Charming.”
“I just want someone to be funny and kind — those are the best attributes that I have found in my life that I think worked,” he explained of the qualities he wants in Ari’s next man. “So, loving, funny, kind, respectful. Just Prince Charming, duh! Yeah, Prince Charming!”
Despite having a super close bond, the famous brother-sister duo has never tried to set each other up with someone — a fact we could hardly believe — but it seems like now might be the time to start, at least for Frankie, 36.
“Neither of us have ever done that for each other. Never! And like I don’t know what it is. I think it’s more like if we get it wrong like ‘oh no,’ then what did we do?” he explained. “But honestly, no, I think we’re just really supportive of each other in our own journeys and on our [paths] but they always intersect, if that makes sense.”
But ultimately, the duo would rather support than influence each other too much. “She does her thing, I do my thing but we’re always connected throughout all of it and then when it all comes together, it’s always beautiful and wonderful and supportive,” he revealed.
Ari and her late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, broke up back in May 2018, just weeks before she confirmed her relationship with SNL funnyman Pete Davidson. Barely a month later, the couple was already engaged, but by the end of the summer, Ari had to deal with the crushing blow of Mac’s passing. By early October, Ari and Pete broke off their engagement, and she’s been single ever since.
Frankie currently stars in Season 2 of Firework LIVE! (Firework is the next-generation social mobile content platform — fireworktv.com — you can tune in by downloading the app).
