Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich’s romance has been heating up over the past few months.
In March 2020, multiple outlets reported that the 27-year-old “Sorry Not Sorry” singer and the 29-year-old “Young and the Restless” star were dating. It’s unclear when or how the two stars met, but they’ve been inseparable since going public with their relationship.
They’ve also been quarantining together amid the coronavirus pandemic and have posted plenty of photos together on social media. In July 2020, the couple revealed that they’re engaged.
Keep reading for a complete timeline of Lovato and Ehrich’s relationship.
“I was on dating apps for a while, but as I’ve spent some time with myself over the past couple months, I realized that I am the type of person that will find any way to regulate when I’m sad or lonely or whatever,” Lovato said during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
She added: “I have to fight those battles on my own, and I can’t let somebody come in and fix those issues for me. So right now I’m single and spending my Saturday nights by myself.”
She also spoke about her relationship status in a cover story for the May 2020 issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
“I’ve never felt more loved,” Lovato said during the interview, which was conducted in early March. “Which is really cool because I’m single as all hell right now.”
The “Skyscraper” singer’s previous relationship with model Austin Wilson reportedly ended in December 2019 after a few months.
Ehrich alluded to their relationship throughout March by posting graffiti of Albert Einstein holding a “love is the answer” sign, sharing poems about love, and dedicating a post to “mi armor” (which translates to “my love”) — all of which Lovato liked on Instagram.
The “Confident” singer also began writing flirty comments on his photos.
In response to a shirtless photo of Ehrich, which he captioned “when u realize u should’ve packed more for your quarantine stay,” Lovato wrote: “Fine by me…”
On March 24, Ehrich posted a black-and-white video of himself singing Coldplay’s “Yellow” while playing the piano. In his caption, he wrote: “4D,” followed by a rose emoji and a heart, presumably dedicating the cover to Lovato.
It’s unclear how or when the two stars began dating, but an unnamed source told Us Weekly that they “met a few weeks ago.”
People and E! News also confirmed that they were dating, with the latter publication reporting that Lovato and Ehrich “have been seeing each other for a few weeks now” and were quarantined together amid the spread of the coronavirus.
A source told E! News that Ehrich was “a good influence on Demi, and they have a lot in common,” in addition to having mutual friends.
During the Instagram live, Ehrich was seated at a piano when Lovato approached, unaware that he was recording. He whispered, “I’m on live,” and she quickly covered herself with her blanket and ran out of the frame.
