Lilly and Ethan were high school sweethearts and welcomed a baby last August. Last week, shortly after reports claimed that Ariana and Dalton Gomez were moving for divorce, news spread that she and the SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical actor are now together. According to TMZ, Ethan filed for divorce from Lilly this week.
