Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich‘s whirlwind romance quickly heated up in 2020 as they checked off some major dating milestones, including quarantining together amid the coronavirus pandemic and getting engaged after just four months of dating.
Lovato and Ehrich sparked romance rumors in March 2020 after they exchanged flirty messages via social media. Later that month, Us Weekly confirmed that the couple were dating. A source told Us at the time that the twosome had met “a few weeks ago” and their relationship was off to a strong start.
The duo’s romance heated up in April 2020 while they quarantined together amid the coronavirus pandemic at Lovato’s house in California. An insider shared with Us that Lovato and the Young and the Restless alum were “getting really serious” in self-isolation together.
“The quarantine has been really great for Demi and her and Max have gotten so close,” the source said at the time. “She’s doing a great job at staying sober, healthy and taking care of herself.”
The insider added that Ehrich was thinking about popping the question to the Sonny With a Chance alum.
“Their families wouldn’t be surprised by the proposal,” the source said at the time. “They think they make a great couple.”
He proposed on July 23, with an ecstatic Lovato revealing the news on Instagram. “@maxehrich – I knew I loved you the moment I met you,” she wrote. “It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too.. I’ve never felt so unconditionally loved by someone in my life (other than my parents) flaws and all. You never pressure me to be anything other than myself. And you make me want to be the best version of myself. I’m honored to accept your hand in marriage. I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby. My partner. Here’s to our future!!!!”
The “I Love Me” singer revealed in May 2020 that Ehrich harbored a crush on Lovato before the pair ended up together. The New Mexico native shared via Instagram a past tweet from Ehrich that read, “All I wanted for Christmas was Demi Lovato. #CantAlwaysGetWhatYouWant.”
Lovato captioned the post, “@maxehrich every Christmas? We love a little manifestation.”
