Mom’s blessing! Demi Lovato‘s mother, Dianna De La Garza, is A-OK if the singer and her ex Wilmer Valderrama get back together. It turns out, fans aren’t the only ones who never quite got over these two. The pair officially ended things in June 2016 after six years together but remain close friends.
“I absolutely adore Wilmer,” the 56-year-old admitted to Us Weekly. “If Demi came up and said they were getting back together, I would not have a problem with that at all. But at the same time, those are her decisions, I can’t make them for her, you know, whoever she decides to be with in life, I’m sure I’m going to be very happy with.”
The Falling With Wings author was sure to add, “Wilmer will always have a very special place in our hearts and in the family and that will never change, for any of us.”
Dianna believes that loving yourself first is the key to lasting happiness. She said, “I just always teach my kids — because they’re daughters — that they have to love themselves before they can love anyone else, and part of that love is self-care and working on yourself to make yourself a better person … I feel like the way to a successful relationship is to love yourself first.”
Whether they were romantically involved at the time or not, the That 70s Show actor, 39, has always supported the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer, 26, through her struggles with addiction and an eating disorder. Most recently, he reportedly rushed to her side after her near-fatal overdose in July 2018.

I wish I could put into words how grateful I am for this man right here. But my love has grown to a level that words could never possibly express how much this man completes me. 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. I really wouldn’t be alive today without him. I love you Wilmer ❤️
Demi has always fully appreciated the Miami native for sticking with her. In March 2015, the former Disney kid celebrated three years of sobriety and wrote a heartfelt post about her then-boyfriend. “He’s loved me the way I never thought I deserved to be loved,” she captioned a photo of the duo kissing. “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. I really wouldn’t be alive today without him.”
Honestly, we’d be totally fine if these two found their way back to each other, too.
