Currently, Cheryl is dating Tyler Cole, a man whose profession—firefighting—carries both risk and rarity.

Take a look at their relationship timeline!

Scott and Cole Made Their Relationship Public in May 2023

Tyler Is a Firefighter With The Dalton Hot Shots

Scott’s boyfriend, Tyler, holds a high-risk position as a U.S. Forest Service firefighter with the Dalton Hot Shots, based near Glendora. His job frequently requires him to be away from home for extended periods, especially during the fire season.

In an interview with Spectrum News in September 2020, during The Bobcat fire in the Angeles National Forest, Cole shared insights into the demanding nature of his work. He explained, “This is our 11th fire we’ve been on, working incidents for 106 days as of today with 12 days off since mid-June.”

Scott Was Engaged to Be Married to Dante Deiana in 2018

She was previously in a committed relationship with Dante Deiana, a DJ and music programmer. The two met at a charity event in Chicago, IL, in 2016. Their connection was immediate, and they soon embarked on numerous adventures together.

In June of that same year, they also enjoyed a memorable ride on a Ferris wheel, during which Dante, despite his fear of heights, managed to hide his discomfort.

Their relationship continued to flourish, leading to a magical moment during the second week of July 2018, when Dante proposed on top of Hawaii’s Haleakala Volcano. A few days later, Cheryl announced their engagement by sharing photos on Instagram of her then-fiance Dante kneeling with a ring. She captioned the moment:

Dante Deiana, This proposal is beyond words and so magical. You have taken my heart to a new level… sky high! I am so excited to share the rest of life and every adventure with you! Thank you for making me feel so incredibly special and kudos to pulling off this epic, surprise proposal on top of Haleakala Volcano!

She Champions Efforts to End Child Marriage

A year after her engagement with Dante, Scott, expressed her joy in her Instagram, “Getting engaged and married is one of the biggest milestones of one’s life and beyond special! I got to say ‘YES’ to @primadante in an epic proposal on @haleakalanps in 2018. I’m grateful that we can celebrate this moment… but not everyone has this right!”

However, in the post, her celebration goes beyond her personal joy. She is dedicated to empowering young women globally. She is vocal about the issue of forced early marriages, urging, “Let’s work together to create a world in which every girl can decide when, if, and whom to marry.”

In her advocacy efforts, Cheryl supports Vow for Girls, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending child marriage.

Dante and Scott, despite their whirlwind romance, called off their engagement in 2022.

She Had Two More Boyfriends in The Past

In early 2015, rumors emerged about Scott’s potential romantic and physical involvement with former Canadian ice hockey player Patrick Sharp. But, she promptly addressed these rumors on Instagram, firmly stating, “Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed.”

Sharp also spoke about the rumors, labeling them as “laughable” and “comical,” and mentioned that they had taken “a toll” on his personal life.

Additionally, Cheryl was said to be linked to Josh Lachelli, owner of Home Slice Pizza, with whom the TV personality briefly dated between late 2015 and 2016.

So far, Scott doesn’t have any children but is very close to her nieces and nephews.
