Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich have taken the next big step in their relatively new relationship by getting engaged. The 27-year-old singer took to Instagram on Wednesday, July 22, to share the good news with her followers officially announcing that now she’s become Ehrich’s partner. 

Friends and fans have showered the couple with immense love, with many eagerly waiting to see them tie the knot. However, the engagement didn’t come across as a surprise, especially after witnessing Lovato and Ehrich’s relationship bloom over the past few months, thanks to their overly romantic social media posts. While the rest of the world seems to be sick and tired of the ongoing shelter-in-place orders due to the novel coronavirus, these love birds couldn’t find a reason to complain as it was the prolonged lockdown that brought them closer than ever. 

The speculations surrounding Lovato and Ehrich being romantically involved first started making rounds in March 2020. Soon after their relationship was confirmed, the couple didn’t shy away from sharing pictures of them openly canoodling on social media. Once, Lovato even accidentally appeared in one of her boyfriend’s Instagram Live videos wrapped in a blanket when he was seen playing the piano. When he whispered, ‘I’m on live’, Lovato soon ran out of the room. 

In less than a month after the couple started making virtual appearances together, a source told US Weekly in April that Ehrich was planning on proposing to the love of his life once the quarantine ends. They further stated that the families "wouldn't be surprised by the proposal" and think that "they make a great couple.”. 

The ‘Sober’ singer who had previously told Harper Bazaar that she wasn’t “looking for a man who I want to have two or three kids with” or settling with a partner wasn’t on her checklist, took everyone by surprise when she introduced her boyfriend to her best friend Sam Smith. She later told Roman Kemp in an interview with Capital Breakfast, "Anybody that meets Sam would be somebody that would be very important to me. I wouldn’t introduce just anybody to Sam."

In May, the duo featured together in Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s music video ‘Stuck With U’ along with other celebrity couples. Although they have been together only for a brief period of time, Lovato revealed sometime back that Ehrich had been crushing on her for a long time. She shared one of his old tweets which read, “All I wanted for Christmas was Demi Lovato. #CantAlwaysGetWhatYouWant” and responded to it saying, “@maxehrich every Christmas? We love a little manifestation.”

Well, it seems like Lovato had already accepted Ehrich as her partner for life as she spoke about spending “every Christmas” together. Despite the restriction on travel due to the pandemic, this star couple managed to make memories by taking off on a weekend trip in June, which Lovato just couldn’t stop gushing about after sharing PDA-filled pictures from their short vacation. On the occasion of the Fourth of July, Lovato shared an adorable picture with her boyfriend and thanked him for making her feel the “happiest."

Following their engagement today, fans are eagerly waiting to see them get married. For all we know, Lovato and Ehrich may once again surprise fans by announcing a sudden wedding. Watch the space for all the latest updates so you don’t miss out on anything!
