She might be a world famous pop star, but Ariana Grande has just celebrated her 26th birthday with a kids party backstage on her 'Sweetener' Tour - and we wish we'd been there to celebrate with her!

The Scotiabank Arena, where Ariana was performing last night (27th July), tweeted some photos from the 'Thank U, Next' singer's party and it's full of colourful balloons, 'Happy Birthday' banners and kids-themed toys. The arena even printed out signs saying 'Happy Birthday Ariana'.

Ariana also took to her socials to share some birthday snaps with her fans. The singer posted a series of black and white photos to Instagram, with her friends, and family (including her mum) wearing party hats.

The pop star is currently in the middle of her 'Sweetener' Tour in Canada before she comes to the UK in August. Ariana will be performing at a number of locations in the UK including London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Sheffield, which have all sold out!

Due to the success of her tour, a further two dates were released for London's O2 Arena, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th October with special guest Ella Mai. Ariana has also extended her tour in the US, announcing that she would be returning for another leg later in the year.

Now take a look at tours you should see in 2019:
