Demi Lovato announces engagement to Max Ehrich with emotional tribute, breaking a million queer hearts in the process
Demi Lovato is engaged to boyfriend Max Ehrich and is “ecstatic to start a family and life with” him.
Lovato — who identifies as “very fluid” — said earlier this year she was “single as all hell”, “open to anything” and could see herself settling down and having children with a woman in the future.
But after a few months of dating, Lovato and Ehrich took to Instagram to announce their engagement.
The singer posted photos of herself, her new fiancé and her huge diamond ring with the caption: “When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his ‘little partner’ — something that might’ve sounded strange without his southern cowboy like accent. To me it made perfect sense.
“And today that word makes perfect sense again but today I’m officially going to be someone else’s partner.”
Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich share engagement photos of dazzling ring.
In a message to Max Ehrich, Demi Lovato wrote: “I knew I loved you the moment I met you. 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 honoured 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!”
