Demi Lovato Is Dating Max Ehrich — Everything to Know About the Actor and Singer
Demi Lovato is off the market — so who’s the lucky guy?
PEOPLE confirmed this week that the pop star, 27, is newly dating Max Ehrich, 28. Though they haven’t publicly addressed their relationship, their flirty exchanges on Instagram have certainly caught fans’ attention.
Here are five things to know about Ehrich.
He’s an actor.
Ehrich, who grew up in Marlboro, New Jersey, has been in the entertainment industry since his teens. His earlier credits include appearances in High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Ugly Betty and iCarly.
In 2012, he landed the role of Fenmore “Fen” Baldwin in the hit CBS soap The Young and the Restless. In an interview with CBS at the time, Ehrich — who went on to earn four Daytime Emmy nominations for the part — recalled watching the show with his grandfather growing up.
“I got the audition and I was really excited because this is actually my grandpa’s favorite, favorite show in the world,” he said, adding that his grandfather “literally screamed” when he heard he got the part.
Most recently, Ehrich starred in the 2019 Lifetime series American Princess and last year’s Netflix biopic Walk. Ride. Rodeo.
He also sings.
Ehrich’s song “Ride” was the soundtrack to Walk. Ride. Rodeo., based on the life of paralyzed barrel racer Amberley Snyder. He told Imagista last year that it was “quite surreal” to have the track featured in the film.
“Music holds a very special place in my heart for a multitude of reasons, but this song is especially meaningful,” he said. “Not only were the lyrics inspired by Amberley’s courage to overcome her near-impossible obstacles, but I had the honor of representing her story and helping her to share it. It was truly an incredible feeling to merge so many of my passions into one project.”
Ehrich often posts snippets of himself singing on Instagram. Earlier this week, he shared a video of himself singing Coldplay’s “Yellow” on the piano, captioning the clip: “4D <3” —="" presumably="" d="" for="">3”>
His Instagram is peppered with motivational quotes and inspirational messages. Earlier this week, he posted a picture of himself wearing a “Hugs Not Drugs” t-shirt, and he’s been encouraging his followers to stay positive amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“there are always blessings even in the darkest times,” he captioned one recent post. “sometimes ya gotta just look for the miracles. do what brings you some joy during this downtime chapter. whether that be creating, reconnecting (via phone unless or already home together) with those you love, praying, meditating, yoga, movies, discovering new music, books, poetry, journaling, painting,… or simply just being. no way is the way except whatever your soul is calling for. much love.”
“I was on dating apps for a while but as I’ve spent some time with myself over the past couple months, I realized that I am the type of person that will find any way to regulate when I’m sad or lonely or whatever,” she said. “I have to fight those battles on my own and I can’t let somebody come in and fix those issues for me. So right now, I’m single and spending my Saturday nights by myself.”
