Demi Lovato has moved on from model Austin Wilson. About three months after their December 2019 split, the singer is now dating former Young and the Restless star Max Ehrich. Their relationship follows a strong start to Lovato’s 2020, with powerhouse performances at the Super Bowl and Grammys. Now, the pair is reportedly quarantining together as they explore their new romance. Below, everything to know about Lovato’s new beau.
He’s an Emmy-nominated former soap actor with a Disney connection.
The 28-year-old actor grew up in Marlboro, New Jersey, before becoming a professional actor. He most famously played the role of Fenmore Baldwin in the hit CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, for which he was nominated for four Daytime Emmys. He’s recently starred in the 2019 Netflix movie Walk. Ride. Rodeo. and the Lifetime series American Princess.
Like Lovato, Ehrich also spent some time in the world of Disney. He appeared in High School Musical 3: Senior Year as well as a couple episodes of the Zendaya and Bella Throne series Shake It Up.
Ehrich and Lovato have been dating since March.
The relationship between Ehrich and Lovato is fairly new. E! reported in late March that the couple had been seeing each other “for a few weeks now.” But, like many couples across the globe, they’ve found themselves living together for the time being. “They have been quarantining together at Demi’s house and it’s going really well,” a source told E!.
The source continued, “Max is very into music and health, and he doesn’t like to party. He is a good influence on Demi, and they have a lot in common. They have a few mutual friends in common, but Demi has been introducing Max to her closest friends via FaceTime since being quarantined. It’s very new but they are definitely hanging out and seeing where it leads. They have spent a lot of time together, but I wouldn’t say it’s an exclusive relationship yet.”
People ran photos of the pair earlier this month that were taken while they shopped for groceries in masks. Their romance comes after Lovato declared herself “single as all hell” in the May 2020 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. In the cover story, she also spoke about wanting to settle down with someone in the future, but maintained she has no set type. “People always ask me, ‘What’s your type?’ And I’m like, ‘Have you seen my history?’ There is no type. It is solely off connection. I wish I could say, ‘I only date attractive people.’ But I don’t,” she told the outlet.
The couple has been flirty on Instagram.
Lovato and Ehrich have yet to make their relationship Instagram official. But it doesn’t take a detective to spot signs of their romance on the ‘gram. Ehrich has shared videos and photos of himself with Lovato’s dogs Cinderella and Batman. On March 30, he posted a photo of himself snuggling with Batman. “My angels ?,” Lovato commented.
If their comments section interactions weren’t enough, Lovato accidentally appeared on Ehrich’s Instagram Live on March 28. In the clip, Ehrich is playing piano before whispering to Lovato offscreen, “I’m on live.” She comes over to his side before he reminds her again that he’s on live, and she quickly exits the frame.
