ARIANA Madix got the ultimate surprise from her boyfriend and friends on her trip to New York City.
The 37-year-old ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star will be attending the Governors Ball in New York this weekend as part of an early birthday present.
One of Ariana’s friends posted a video on Instagram showing her standing in a restaurant as she was shared the exciting news.
The Bravo star looked excited as she wore a black blazer and rubbed her hands in anticipation.
On Ariana’s left was new boyfriend Daniel Wai, with whom she shared a kiss at Coachella earlier this year.
Her friend told her that they were all attending Governors Ball, the biggest music festival in New York City, taking place June 9-11.
Her friend went on to name some of the artists who will be performing, including Lizzo and Lil Nas X.
The owner of Something About Her jumped up and down, screaming in shock and excitement as she spotted another friend from afar and pointed at him.
The video ended with Ariana turning sideways and hugging her new sweetheart.
“12 of us just gave Ariana an early birthday surprise in New York and we’re going to @govballnyc baby!” Instagram user @bradxbrad wrote along with the video.

Though Ariana and Daniel live on opposite shores, with Ariana living in LA and Daniel in NYC, the two seem to be making the most of their trip before returning to open their West Hollywood sandwich shop: Something About Her.
A BRAND NEW affair
With the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion airing now wrapped, Ariana looks to the future by forging new partnerships, releasing her own merch and developing her personal relationships.
The Bravo star found out on March 1 that her boyfriend of almost 10 years, Tom Sandoval, had been dating her friend and co-star Raquel Leviss for months.
While the initial shock to the reality star was devastating from what viewers saw in the newly added Season 10 footage, she met a new person a few weeks after the cheating was revealed.
After first meeting at a wedding in Mexico, Ariana and her new boyfriend were spotted cozying up at this year’s Coachella festival in April.
TMZ received photos of the duo kissing on the curb of LAX after the festival, suggesting the bond between them had grown.
Weeks later, Yahoo reported that Ariana was visiting Daniel in New York to celebrate his birthday.
On May 2, the lovebirds posted photos from the New York Yankees game they attended together.
A day later, Daniel posted a photo of himself and Ariana holding hands at a romantic dinner.
Most recently, Ariana smiled in another group photo taken in NYC as she wrapped her arms around the fitness guru while dining with friends at Campagnola Restaurant.
Many users shared their love for the Bravo star in the comments, with one seemingly pointing out their new romance: “Love it! Team Ariana down the line. Lol.”
38 AND FEEL GREAT
While the last year of Ariana’s life has been quite a roller coaster, it looks like 38 is going to be a great year for the reality star.
Something About Her, the sandwich shop she runs with fellow VPR member Katie Maloney, is set to open sometime this summer.
With the latest renovations being carried out, the eatery seems poised to open its doors in the coming months.
Ariana also supports brands on social media, most notably Lays, Uber One and most recently Duracell.
Ariana’s new Duracell ad dropped shortly after the final part of the reunion aired on June 7 and contained several digs at claims her ex had made about her in the past.
Ariana also promoted a new t-shirt on Instagram after Tom made a nasty comment at her during the reunion – and capitalized on his words while the Schwartz & Sandy’s owner continues to face criticism on social media.
