Miley Cyrus Engaged to Marry Liam Hemsworth
“Life is beautiful,” Miley Cyrus tweeted early Wednesday.
And we know why.
The former Hannah Montana star, 19, and Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, 22, are engaged to be married after three years of dating. Hemsworth popped the question with a 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond on May 31.
We suppose congratulations are in order?
“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus told People magazine of the wedding news.
Miley and Liam — a native of Australia — met and fell in love on the set of the Nicholas Sparks rom-drama The Last Song in 2009. In fact, Liam pumped the brakes on the romance with his sweetheart back home just to be with Miley.
The duo first sparked rumors of an engagement back in March, when the bride-to-be starlet tweeted a picture of her “nail foundations” and conveniently failed to mention the huge diamond sitting snug on her left hand ring finger.Later that week a source told OK! magazine that Liam and Miley were “seriously talking marriage.”
Miles’ country crooner dad — Billy Ray Cyrus — has long lobbied for the couple to wed. An insider dished earlier this year:
“He knows they love each other and that they’re sleeping together. In his opinion, the best thing she could do would be to elope. That way, he won’t have to pay for an expensive wedding and his little girl will stop living in sin.”
Spoken like a true backwoods papa.
