Demi Lovato shares more photos from beach engagement: ‘Best night of my life’

We heard last week that Demi Lovato, 27, was engaged to actor Max Elrich, 29, whom she met early in quarantine. It was nice to hear that Demi is happy after all she’s been through. She tends to fall hard and fast, she posts loved-up photos earlier in her relationships, and it seems like she should give it a little more time though. Hopefully Demi and Max will have a longer engagement. Since announcing their news with some lovely beach photos showing off her giant ring, Demi has shared more pictures from that moment. Those are above and were taken by photographer Angelo Kritikos, whom she credited in her first post announcing their engagement. Demi thanked him for “hiding behind rocks and capturing the entire thing,” and it looks like he was sneakily capturing the proposal too! Here’s what Demi wrote about these photos:

Best night of my life… still soaking it all up.. I love you baby @maxehrich 💍

That’s really sweet actually. Max commented “Love you so much baby ❤️ more and more every moment.” Demi’s last post as of press time is a video of Max’s face with the caption “Magical moments captured by me.” He commented “Words can’t express the amount of love I have in my heart for your infinite soul. ❤️ forever and always baby

Real question: have these two had a disagreement or minor fight yet? I doubt they have.

Late last week Demi wrote about how much things have changed for her in the two years after her overdose and rehab stay. She’s gone through a lot and easily could have died if the people with her hadn’t acted quickly. I’m so happy to see that she’s doing ok now, and she wrote that she worked hard on that. The slideshow with Demi’s words is below and here’s what she wrote in case you can’t read it.

July 24, 2020 Today is my miracle day. I’m so blessed to have one. It represents how the Dr’s at Cedar’s Sinai saved my life. How my life has become something beyond my wildest dreama. Only 2 years after that terrible day, I’m engaged to the love of my life, and I can genuinely say I feel free of my demons. Each and every one. I never thought this feeling was possible. It’s not just because I fell in love (although that didn’t hurt), but because over the past 2 years, I’ve done more work on myself than I have in my entire life. Things that used to keep me down for weeks or even months, pass like tropical storms because my relationship with God has provided me infinite security. Long before I had an engagement ring on my ring finger, I had the word “me” to remind myself that no matter what, I vow to love myself. You can’t fully love another without loving yourself first. Thank you God for this peace and understanding but most of all giving me the strength to fight through my darkest times. Thank you to my family, friends and fans for always supporting me and respecting my privacy regarding this journey. I love you all.

This makes me want to go to therapy. It’s a big deal that she’s been able to stay sober and work on herself. I think she’s holding this relationship up too much, but she’s been hoping for something lasting and it’s happened for her. I’m happy for her and want her to have a wonderful marriage and life. I do think she should wait until next year to get married though. That way she can figure out how she and Max work out issues together. They might be able to have a big splashy wedding then too. I can’t wait for parties and weddings to come back.

    Happy for them and hope it lasts. Sometimes when you know, you know.

    I find her ring to be absolutely hideous. It’s just wayyy too much. It looks like costume jewelry.

  2. Otaku fairy says:

    Glad she seems to be in a good place.

  3. AppleTartin says:

    I was wondering how real that ring was. Or maybe it was a trade for SM promotion. But I don’t see the jeweler hashtagged so maybe not. Addicts tend to transfer addictions so I do hope the best for her and this doesn’t set her back if things go sideways.

  4. ChillyWilly says:

    That ring is so gaudy. Looks like it belongs on some 80 year old oil tycoon’s wife.

  5. josephine says:

    These pics are actually after the fact, right? I have a hard time thinking that she wore that dress to the beach and happened to have her nails done in a pandemic. I don’t know, I just hate that people have to share these staged proposal pics. Release one or two, but the more pics are released, and over multiple days, the more I worry.

    And I agree on others about the ring, but as long as she’s happy with it, that’s all that matters.

  6. Mary says:

    All right. I’ll say it. I love the ring!!

  7. AnnaKist says:

    Sorry, I don’t like the ring. It’s just so big it looks fake. It reminds me of the ring my daughter used to always try to win from the bubblegum machine in the big shopping centre. I’m not part of her demographic, and once had to ask a young family member who she was. She’s certainly had a troubled time. Reading here about what happened two years ago made me think of a line from one of my favourite band’s songs: “How fragile is the flame that burns within us all to light each passing day.” Wishing this couple the best.

    I feel like he could have been any guy, as long as he offered the stability she craves. I’m gonna be a Debbie Downer and say that this relationship doesn’t have a solid foundation and is unlikely to last. Also, as much as we want it to not be true, relationships in which the woman is the primary breadwinner have their own inherent set of challenges that are often hard to overcome. I give it less than a year.

    • Sam the Pink says:

      Speak for yourself! I make more than my husband and it has never been an issue. Female breadwinners are only an issue when the man makes it one. Plenty of men can involve themselves with successful women and be just fine. My husband’s job is important and he’s proud of the work he does. The fact that his checks don’t match mine each week has never seemed to bother him.

    • Flamingo says:

      I think any huge pay disparity can become an issue. When I met my husband, he made probably fives times as much as I did. I’m a fairly competitive person and I had to learn how to take myself out of the competition as I would never match his earning potential. It’s a hard thing to do. The first Christmas that I was married, I used my Christmas bonus to buy him a really nice watch, he bought me a BMW, and I was upset because I felt like he’d one upped me. (I realize this sounds incredibly bratty.) I had to take myself aside and ask why I was being so competitive instead of being happy that I was married to someone who enjoyed doing and paying for nice things for me.

  9. Flamingo says:

    Good for her, but I’m going to call BS on it being a surprise. He is a bit part actor with not much on his filmography, so I’d go ahead and say that she bought the ring herself. No shame in that, I say get what you like as far as engagement rings go, but it’s hard to be surprised if you bought it yourself. Even if it is a super included diamond, it’s probably about 6 carats and an episode of iCarly and The Young and the Restless doesn’t pay well enough to be buying a $400k ring.

  10. anniefannie says:

    She was never to ashamed to share her struggles so I think it’s appropriate to share her triumphs. He looks waaay into her! My fingers are crossed for these two…

  11. Chickaletta says:

    I want her to be happy. I don’t know her personally, obviously, and I realize she isn’t a perfect person but I just truly root for her.

    She’s also one celeb that I wish had a “lifestyle” website. Like, I don’t really want to buy shoes from CZJ or listen to Goop. But I would 100% love Demi recommending shit, talking about her recovery and what helps her and what creature comforts she has.
