We see you! Demi Lovato and former Bachelorette contestant Mike Johnson shared a very flirty exchange on Instagram after the singer posted a super sexy bikini photo that showed off all her natural curves. The reality stud first caught the singer’s eye when he charmed viewers on Hannah Brown‘s season — she previously posted on her Instagram Story about how the handsome guy was “her pick.” The Air Force veteran was just eliminated during the September 3 episode of Bachelor in Paradise so he is a single man.
“Look back at me like that again,” Mike, 31, commented on the “Confident” singer’s bikini-clad (and unedited!) picture on September 5. “Love yaself!” he added. In return, Demi, 27, added a kissing and laughing emoji. Okurrr!
Of course, a slew of other celebrities chimed in to praise the brunette beauty. “Showing us YOU is so incredibly beautiful. Thank you, Demi! Love you, mama!” Ashley Graham gushed in the comments. Noah Cyrus added, “[You’re] so hot.” Her new manager, Scooter Braun, also shared some kind words, “YOU did this. YOU. YOU are amazing … Bravo for loving YOU first and in turn inspiring millions.”
Demi got very candid in the caption for the gorgeous photo. “This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited — and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me,” she wrote. “This is what I got.”
Mike has proved himself to be one supportive man while dating in front of the cameras. Demi is doing better than ever since her near-fatal overdose during summer of 2018 and seems to be working hard on self-love. The two would make an absolutely gorgeous couple, and even Bachelor Nation alum Rachel Lindsay thinks so. “Well I want him to be the Bachelor but my gosh if you tell me, ‘I’m not going to be the Bachelor because I’m dating Demi Lovato,’ I’m not mad,” the newlywed exclusively told Life & Style on August 8.
Mike would be a great leading man but we are shipping him hard with Demi!
