The handsome hunk also confirmed the sad news via Instagram, writing, "A little more than 3 years ago I crossed roads with the most amazing human being. That day changed my life forever, and I'm deeply grateful for every single moment we shared together since. It's been a truly humbling experience to grow with her on my side."

He continued, "Through this person I have learned what unconditional love means, something only my parents blessed with growing up and I'd not been able to fully open up to again and accept in my adult life before meeting her. I remember one of the first things she told me when we started dating, something so simple but profound it rewired the inside of my brain and soul."

"Through her eyes I've learned to love myself, to feel beautiful, to feel accepted by accepting myself, with my countless flaws and imperfections," he concluded. "I will never be able to fully express in words what it means to be saved by someone, and it's something I know with all my heart each and every living creature will experience at some point in its journey. Salvation."

A few months later, the Disney Channel alum and the actor, 28, became Instagram official. Things moved quickly, as the red-headed beauty teased she would be walking down the aisle in the near future.

"💍💍💍big announcement coming soon," the Famous in Love alum wrote in January 2021. "I'm so happy."

In November 2021, the "Call It Whatever" songstress gushed over working with Mascolo on their movie Time Is Up.

"It’s so fun. I didn’t know how it was going to be because I hadn’t acted with a significant other before or acted with someone I was dating. It was definitely nerve-wracking. I thought, 'What if we fight? What if we’re tired or angry?' We didn’t fight the entire time, it was pretty crazy!" she told OK!. "It was just a great experience. I was really happy to be there for his first time, and because acting is really scary, especially when you haven’t acted before and you’re the lead of the movie."
