In 2012, he started working on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless. He starred as Fenmore "Fen" Baldwin, and earned four Daytime Emmy nominations for his role. According to People, it's his grandfather's favorite show, and he was beyond thrilled when he originally landed the role.

Other noteworthy acting roles Ehrich had were appearances in the Disney Channel show Shake it Up, television movie The Pregnancy Pact, the sci-fi series Under the Dome, and an episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.

Most recently, Ehrich appeared in the comedy series American Princess, and the Netflix original film Walk. Ride. Rodeo. Ehrich also sings, and he has a song on the film's soundtrack.

He posts videos of his at-home performances on Instagram, and has appeared to dedicate the tunes Coldplay's "Yellow" and Mario's "Let Me Love You" to Lovato in the past with hearts in the captions, and writing "4 D" (Demi).

Ehrich is also into working out. He posts about his fitness routine on Instagram. "I usually stick to the weights, hikes, yoga, surfing, but decided to step a bit out of the comfort zone and try something new," Ehrich captioned an Instagram update in January. He also shares romantic quotes on social media, which makes him an extra sweet match for Lovato.

Fans speculated that Lovato and Ehrich were dating when they saw the two leave flirty comments on each other's Instagram posts. Us Weekly confirmed they were dating in late March.

In May, Lovato and Ehrich were one of the couples featured in Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's music video "Stuck With U." They shared a sweet kiss, and publicly confirmed their relationship. E! reported that the two were social distancing together amid the pandemic, and had plenty of time to get to know each other without distractions.

Ehrich proposed to Lovato on July 22, but he had his eyes on her for quite some time.

In December 2011, he tweeted that he wanted the "Cool for the Summer" singer for Christmas.

Fast forward nine years, and now they're engaged. Congrats to Demi and Max!
