Demi Lovato announced her new engagement to partner Max Ehrich via Instagram on Wednesday. Lovato posted photos of the two kissing on beautiful beach while also showing off her big diamond ring.

She wrote, “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.”

She went on, “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!!!! 😩😭❤️🥰😍”

Ehrich had also shared the news on his own Instagram. He said, “Ahhhh 💍😭🥳💓 You are every love song, every film, every lyric, every poem, everything I could ever dream of and then some in a partner in life. Words cannot express how infinitely in love with you I am forever and always and then some. I cannot spend another second of my time here on Earth without the miracle of having you as my wife. here’s to forever baby.”

He added, “you are the most beautiful inside and out in the entire world & I couldn’t be more grateful God brought us together 🥳❤️ 🙃💍💍💍😭I LOVE YOU SO MUCH @ddlovato AND WILL FOREVER CHERISH YOUR PURE, BEAUTIFUL, INFINITE SOUL.”

Lovato posted a photo of Ehrich and herself kissing on July 4. She captioned it, “Oh man this might be my favorite pic of us so far… thank you for making me the happiest 🥰 I love yew soooo much @maxehrich 😍💕.”

Dating rumors between the two arose in March when fans caught flirty comments on social media being exchanged. It was then revealed that the couple was practicing social distancing together during the coronavirus pandemic.

At the time a source told E! News, “This time has been very special because they have been one-on-one with no distractions or stress from outside life. They’ve really gotten to know each other on a different level. She is feeling great and loves being with him. He supports her sobriety and is very understanding. It’s going great and they both see it moving in a serious direction. She has loved having him at her house and trying out living together. So far, it’s working very well.”
