We are ‘shipping #Dilmer so hard right now!
Lovato, who was in the middle of telling the crowd that her “heart was broken” that Valderrama couldn’t be there that night, got the surprise of her life when the former That ’70s Show actor walked on stage and immediately enveloped his stunned girlfriend in a hug and kiss.
But that’s not all. After leading the audience in a rendition of “Happy Birthday” to celebrate the pop star’s three-year anniversary of being sober, Valderrama addressed the crowd and his girlfriend in an incredibly touching speech about her strength and bravery.
“It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a role model like her,” the actor said, praising Lovato for her courage and leadership. “It’s been a long time to see somebody who has the courage to be exactly who she wants to be. If you’re going to take away anything from tonight, walk away with the understanding that, from today, life will get better.”
This past weekend, Lovato opened up about how much of a hand Valderrama had in her recovery.
“He’s loved me the way I never thought I deserved to be loved and with this day marking my 3rd year sober… After sharing my ups, putting up with my downs and supporting my recovery… he still never takes credit and I want the world to know how incredible his soul is,” she shared.
