Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Are Getting Married
She can't be tamed, but she can be wed. Miley Cyrus is getting married to Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth, the stars' reps confirmed to People, and since it doesn't seem she was as wigged out as her Hannah Montana alter-ego at the time of the proposal, it looks this engagement news is going to stick.
"I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam," Cyrus told the magazine.
Cyrus is 19, Hemsworth is 22, and the couple met filming 2009's The Last Song. (See photos of the couple throughout the years here.)
According to People, Hemsworth proposed May 31 with a 3.5 carat Neil Lane diamond ring we're sure to toss into our Celebrity Engagement Ring gallery in due time. "Heaven is a place on earth," Cyrus Tweeted June 1 (and, if we're going to continue gleaning intel from her Twitter feed, the lovebirds may or may not have celebrated June 4 by indulging in a Spongebob Squarepants marathon).
Though they've been together since Cyrus was 16, the actors have had an on-and-off relationship. As the Daily Mail notes, they first announced a split in August 2010, but reunited a month later. More recently, in November 2011, they'd broken up again -- but Cyrus was on Hemsworth's arm shortly thereafter, turning up at Hunger Games premieres around the world.
The tween-queen's parents are thrilled by the news, according to reports, though they've yet to release an official statement, and as the Today Show notes, they've long considered Hemsworth a member of the family, even though he is an Australian with precious few face tattoos.
Around the time of The Last Song's release, Hemsworth told the Daily Mail that he couldn't help falling for Cyrus. "She makes me really happy," he said. "When you start, you want to be professional, but when you're filming those scenes with someone and pretending to love them, you're not human if you don't feel something."
May their love as enduring as the popularity of Nicholas Sparks novels. Can't wait to see that wedding cake.
