Now that the singer has found the love of her life, it's time to take a deep dive into the newly engaged Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich's relationship timeline. Over the years, Lovato has had many ups and downs, but it sounds like she's finally found true happiness with singer and actor Ehrich. Based on what they've shared, the two couldn't be happier and are ready to spend the rest of their lives together.
In an interview with Bustle published on July 7, Lovato opened up about how she continues to work on herself with Ehrich by her side. The two have been quarantined together in a Los Angeles home they're renting. "Before quarantine, it was very difficult for me to cry," she revealed. "I had programmed the thought into my head when I was 16 that I'm only going to cry if people pay me to. I started doing all this work, allowing myself to feel the pains of all the losses that I've had or the adversities or traumas that I've faced."
She's always loved hard and passionately, but the pandemic has truly helped her focus on herself, including when it comes to connecting with others. "I think my ability to be vulnerable and be more intimate with people has really heightened," she admitted to Bustle.
And now here she is head over heels in love with Ehrich and planning a permanent future with him. Let's take a look at their relationship from beginning to end.
