The age difference between Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama almost prevented them from dating. During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lovato said that Valderrama had “some hesitations” when they met six years ago. “Once I got older, we could be together,” she explained.

Lovato, 23, and Valderrama, 35, met in 2010 at a Voto Latino PSA shoot that took place at Valderrama’s house. Speaking to And Pop magazine in 2014, Lovato said, “I was like, ‘Oh my god. This guy is so attractive.’ We started talking.” In the aforementioned Entertainment Tonight interview, Lovato said she “knew [she] loved when [she] met him.” She added that he’s her “best friend.” Based on their Instagrams together, they’re pretty much head-over-heels in love. Here’s to another six more years!
