Congratulations to Demi Lovato and actor/singer Max Ehrich. The first real coronavirus celebrity engagement! Ah, love in total isolation. I’m sure it’ll translate seamlessly to the hustle and bustle of the real world.
These two quarantined together and went public with their relationship in late March. Just three months before that, Demi ended things with model Austin Wilson. So yeah, it’s fast. But I guess when ya know, ya know! And, in her Instagram engagement announcement, Demi says she knew she loved Max the moment she met him. Max apparently once tweeted that he wanted to marry Selena Gomez. So….close?
Here are Max and Demi’s posts:

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. @maxehrich – 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 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!!!! 😩😭❤️🥰😍 Ps. THANK YOU @angelokritikos FOR HIDING BEHIND ROCKS AND CAPTURING THE ENTIRE THING!!! I love you boo!!!

I’m glad Demi got the giant glittery rock of her dreams. She’s had a rough few years. In 2018 she fell off the wagon, overdosed, and went back to rehab. Luckily, Max understands the struggles of substance abuse, as, according to my Young & the Restless-obsessed friend (hi Nicky!), the character he played, Fenmore Baldwin (!!!), was a teen drug addict. Who also went to prison. And dealt with cyber-bullying.
The real question is, who will Demi go with for her maid of honor? A Jonas Brother? Wilmer Valderrama? Sure as hell won’t be Selena Gomez. There’s zero mystery about Max’s choice for best man; his frequent musical partner, Rebecca Black. Yes, THEE Rebecca Black, of “Friday” fame. Here’s their 2016 duet of Baby, It’s Cold Outside:
Don’t worry, Demi! Even though Max and Rebecca’s chemistry is hotter than your Henry Cavill thirst trap, these two are just friends. The one you should worry about is Max’s ex, Bella Thorne. She’s the type who’ll disguise herself in old-man-drag to sneak into the wedding, then when the priest asks, “Does anyone object?”, tear off the (completely velcro-ed) costume in one fell swoop, revealing a skimpy bikini and the words “MAX + BELLA + DEMI = THROUPLE?” painted on her belly. I do, I do, I do!
