“It is after 30 years, five amazing children and a lifetime of memories, we have decided to go our separate ways—not with sadness, but with love in our hearts,” the former couple said in joint statement to People this year. “We have grown up together, raised a family we can be so proud of, and it is now time to create our own paths.”
Billy Ray’s new path appears to be with Firerose. Back in July, the pair released their duet titled “New Day.” Since then, both Billy Ray and Firerose have been posting pictures and captions on Instagram that have fans convinced they are more than just collaborators.
When Billy Ray celebrated his birthday on Aug. 25, Firerose shared a message on Instagram writing, “The world is a better place with you in it.”
