Demi Lovato is engaged to Max Elrich, her boyfriend of less than four months

Since we’ve been talking about Kanye West and mental illness all week, I thought Demi Lovato’s name was trending for something regarding Kanye. Demi has dealt with lots of mental health issues too, including addiction and her diagnosed bipolar syndrome. Demi has dealt with stuff in public as well, but Demi has always openly sought treatment. The reaction to her mental health issues has always been so different.

Demi has just announced her engagement to Max Ehrich, her boyfriend of less than four months. Ehrich is an actor and he used to be on Young and the Restless (a soap opera, for non-Americans). Ehrich proposed to Demi in Malibu, by the ocean, with a GIANT diamond ring from jeweler Peter Marco (the ring is gorgeous, tbh). Ehrich is 29, Demi is 27, in case anyone is wondering. They got together in March and they quarantined together, which reportedly brought them even closer. This is a Bubble Engagement! On her Instagram, Demi posted this:

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!!!! 😩😭❤️🥰😍

I’m choosing to be happy for her! I mean, I think four months is not enough time, for sure, but I imagine the quarantine heightened everything and I do think that “when you know, you know.” She’s not a dumb kid anymore, she’s a 27-year-old woman and she fell in love.

    I think four months in quarantine should be enough to weed the really bad stuff about someone out.

  2. Stacy Dresden says:

    Love the emerald cut

  3. Lary says:

    Congrats to her…I got engaged 6 months after meeting my now-husband (we were in our mid-30s though) – so when you know! I say this knowing she’s a celebrity and their divorce rates aren’t low! :) But I wish her well and hope this works out for her after all she’s been through!

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I can believe it- we were engaged in 8 mos, and married 8 mos after that… now 25 years later!

  4. BL says:

    I love Demi and I am rooting hard for her. She is a fabulous human. But 4 months girl…red flag? Also, I am probably in the minority- but I do not like ring at all!

  5. VS says:

    4 months………..ok! all the best to them!

  6. Astrid says:

    i used to think that the test of a new relationship was a weekend with the family LOL. Now with the virus and quarantine situation, I’ve changed my relationship boromoter to being in close quarters for a period of time.

  7. Chelly says:

    4 months, in quarantine, plus the engagement & wedding planning (should she decide to go big) could make it maybe a year until they’re actually married, so…yeah, congrats

  8. Marietta58 says:

    I love Demi and I say congrats! My mom and dad were engaged after 6 weeks and married 6 months later for over 20 years. Only separated when she passed away at 50. My dad has always said it was love at first sight and he knew immediately she was the one.

    Sometimes it just works like that! I hope Demi truly has a great love with Max, she deserves it after everything she’s been through!

  9. TheOriginalMia says:

    Congratulations to them! She looks and sounds healthy and happy.

  10. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    There are times a ring can be too big. I think this applies here, just my humble opinion. But good for her. If they are happy, then that’s great.

  11. Cg2495 says:

    Max is a really cool guy, he wore my shoes for a photo shoot ( I am a footwear designer) and he was gracious, respectful and overall nice guy.

    Hope they are happy!

  12. ce says:

    A four month relationship is bad enough, but Demi herself has bipolar disorder, addiction disorder, and was recently released from rehab?? This isn’t a good idea nor should we be rooting for her… they tell you not to get into a serious relationship for a year after leaving rehab because you can get ‘high’ off the feelings for another person and replace one addiction for another… essentially using your partner. It never ends well and I side-eyed this relationship from the beginning because of that. But oh well no one will say anything to her

    • MM2 says:

      Her relapse & overdose was July 2018 and she’s been sober since, so that’s well over a year. Why shouldn’t we root her her? Cuz she has disorders that she’s been open about & getting treatment for? This comment is the kind of stigma that keeps people from being honest & getting help, and I’m not rooting for that. But I am rooting for Demi & will be here to cheer on her happiness.

      • ce says:

        She left rehab November 2018, so a year after that was like 8 months ago. It is a red flag. I and many people in my family suffer from mental illnesses so I see this stuff play out first-hand. Not just being ‘negative’ here but speaking from experience

      • tealily says:

        This year is 2020, not 2019.

    • lisa says:

      ce, totally agree with you. It is too soon for someone with an addictive personality who does everything in the extreme. What’s wrong with going slow and boring for awhile? Why does she always have to dial everything up to an 11?

  13. Solace says:

    Congrats to her :)

  14. Lee says:

    The ring looks like costume jewelry.

    • Zoya says:

      Eeks i know. I’m from India and I find it gaudy 😁
      But girlfriend looks beautiful and radiant… Congrats to the couple!!

  15. Girl with the Soup Tattoo says:

    Meh, I knew I was going to marry my husband on our third date when I was 27. Years of terrible abusive partners, poor decisions and recently out of inpatient for an eating disorder. I don’t think he understood what a liability I could have been, but I knew immediately what I had with him and I knew I didn’t want to waste another day. I moved in four months later, bought a house after 1 year, engaged the next …but to be honest if we had money like those two and I were more established in my career I absolutely would have said, let’s just do it! Many congrats to them!

    • Fleur says:

      My partner and I knew after six months of knowing each other (deep friendship, not superficial) and two months Into dating that we wanted to marry the other person and had a love that could last a lifetime. Neither of us are impulsive, we’re both very measured, we both had a number of prior relationships, and we’re mid thirties so we know ourselves. I never ever believed I’d be a person who would feel that way—-or want to marry at all, tbh, but if you’re fortunate than the adage is true, when you know, you know (this is coming from a love skeptic! Before him I thought romantic love was Santa or the tooth fairy! A happy delusion!)

      Given her past, I hope it works and they’re stable enough to maintain. She was with Wilmer for years, so I am sure she can do long term and be happy And healthy. I hope he can too

    I wish her great happiness.
    But yikes, too soon! too soon!!
    And i hope she gets a really good prenup.
    B/c relationships that start out super intense and “perfect” tend to end UGLY.

  17. Watson says:

    I love that ring. To get a nice looking emerald cut is NOT EASY and this one is good! More than anything I love that she is happy. Team Demi forever!

  18. Otaku fairy says:

    Hopefully it will be a long engagement, but good for her.

  19. Dee Kay says:

    In most cases I would say 4 months is way too short a time to get engaged in, but I think 4 months of living together in quarantine is like 12 or 16 of dating in normal times!! Plus at 27 and 29 I think both parties were probably already ready for marriage, maybe thinking the next person they got serious with would probably be “the one.” Hopefully it will work out for these two!!! Like others are saying, if they choose to have the actual wedding in a year, that’s actually plenty of time for them to figure out if it’s right or not.

  20. Cait says:

    Those nails are hideous. They don’t even fit her nail beds!

  21. CarlaM says:

    Her body language is telling me she’s very clingy and codependent.

    Hope she’s not using the relationship or him as ‘healers’ (escapes) from all her issues, and that she’s healthy and happy.

  22. Carrie says:

    I wish her the best. Sometimes, you just don’t need to know someone very long before knowing that’s the person you want to marry. My parents knew each other for just six weeks before getting engaged. They’ve been married for almost 50 years!

  23. StrawberryBlonde says:

    My husband and I knew right away. We met when I was 35 and he was 37. After our first date we each thought “I’m going to marry that person” (although we didn’t tell each other about that immediate thought for years). I went home from that date and told my friends I had met “the one”. LOL. After that date we were together as often as we could be. At 3 months we bought a ring. He proposed just shy of 5 months (which was a little early for me – my parents got engaged after 6 months and have been married 45 years so I thought 6 months sounded ok). We were married 1 year and 2 weeks after we met. Now we have been married 2+ years and we have a 16 month old.

    I never thought I would fall in love. And we are both so level headed and not prone to rush into things. But when you know…you know. It’s a cliche for a reason.

  24. Chelsea says:

    This girl has been through hell and back multiple times so it is so nice to see a smile like this on her face.

    This does feel a bit fast but as someone who’s followed Demi for years I know she’s talked a lot about wanting to settle down when the time is right so it’s not the most shocking thing in the world. And from recent interviews it sounds like she’s learned from past relationship mistakes so I’m gonna trust her judgment on this and just be happy for her.
