Ariana Grande Shares Photo with Dad After 'Falling Out of Touch' Years Ago

Ariana Grande posted a photo with her father Edward backstage during one of her Jingle Ball performances!

The 23-year-old entertainer, who was photographed performing on Sunday evening (December 11) at KISS 108′s Jingle Ball 2016 at TD Garden in Boston, Mass, shared the pic, with the caption, “dad came out for hairspray and jingle ball 😌#crying #hisHat.”

Ariana previously told Seventeen magazine that she had lost touch with her father.

“Falling out of touch with my dad [was the toughest thing I've ever dealt with]. It’s private, but it happened last year. It took me so long to be okay with it,” she said. “The thing that got me there was embracing the fact that that I am made up of half my dad, and a lot of my traits come from him. So much of me comes from my father, and for so long, I didn’t like that about myself. I had to accept that it’s okay not to get along with somebody and still love them.”
