Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth are engaged, Miley confirms to People Mag

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged, y’all. Miley confirmed the news to People Magazine, and it seems like she also gave People some exclusive photos of her engagement ring too. Miley and Liam have been together for the better part of three years – they got together in the summer of 2009, and they split up a few times for a few months back in 2010-ish. But Miley and Liam always got back together after those early breakups, and word around the gossip mill was that Liam wanted Miley to live a less famewhore-extravaganza lifestyle. Miley did end up taking a step back from her celebrity life, and she and Liam have been living together for more than a year. And now they’re engaged…?

Wedding Party in the U.S.A.!

Miley Cyrus and Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth are engaged to be married after three years of dating, their reps confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.

“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus, 19, tells PEOPLE.

Australian actor Hemsworth, 22, who met Cyrus when they costarred in The Last Song in 2009, proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane.

Next up for the couple: Cyrus is in the studio working on a new album, while Hemsworth is currently filming Empire State in New Orleans. He’ll also shoot Paranoia with Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman before beginning production on the second Hunger Games installment.

For more on Cyrus and Hemsworth’s engagement, including what their families think – and to see a photo of Cyrus’s ring – pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

[From People Magazine]

Yeah, Liam’s career is really picking up nowadays. When Liam and Miley first got together, she was the breadwinner and the “star” but with The Hunger Games and “the rise of the Hemsworth boys,” Liam is definitely going to get more work. Will Miley be okay with playing second fiddle to an emerging Hollywood heartthrob? I kind of think she might be okay with it. Especially if she starts having babies.

Back in March, Miley tweeted a photo of her hand, supposedly showing off her manicure, but she really seemed to be showing off a diamond ring. I don’t know if this is her engagement ring or not, I just thought I’d put it up:

    Good for her, but imo it’s a bad idea. At 19, it’s too young. Sometimes it works out, but more often that not, it ends in divorce.. Wow, sorry for the Debbie Downer moment..

    • brin says:

      You’re just being realistic, especially when it comes to celebrity couples.
      I agree with you…they are too young, but congrats to them and I hope they beat the odds.

    • janie says:

      No, I agree. I’ve been in a relationship for 5 years and I’m just turning 21. Doesn’t mean it’s time to get married. Why mess with a good thing?

      Seems like a dumb decision but I hope they work out.

    • Liv says:

      I think it’s fine if they plan a long, long engagement…they seem pretty solid. But I hope they don’t get married soon, you change so much in your twenties, especially from 20-25.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I agree that they do seem solid. But I also agree that they (especially her!) are way way wayyyyy too young. I do wish them well though.

      • Kara Ann says:

        Isn’t a long, long engagement just called dating? How seriously can you take someone who says “my fiance” for over two years? Or for that matter talks about “my fiance” but looks really blank when you ask about wedding plans? Once I asked about a young woman’s wedding plans (I’d been acquainted with her for six months or so and she was engaged when I first met her), the girl looked at me like I was rude for asking! I thought I was being polite. Reality check if you are engaged for a long, long time, well that’s dating. Talk to me when you are planning a wedding or, even planning to plan a wedding.
        Oh wait, you’re pretty sly…I see the long, long engagement means it is probably smart that they don’t wed!! Yep, I agree.

    • Amelia says:

      You’re not being a Debbie, ITA. I wish them all the best but..
      19 is simply far too young, hell, 22 is far too young. You just NEED that life experience to help you with your judgement, especially with huge decisions like this. I’m 21 and vowing never to get married until I’ve passed that late twenties line, I’ve seen two of my friends’ relationships go up in smoke because they thought they were ‘the one’ even though they’d only had maybe two partners before in their life. How can you know this person is ‘the one’ if you’ve never had anything to compare them to? That probably sounds really disgustingly utilitarian, but seriously – what are the odds you’ll find your soulmate only a few years after you start dating with barely any life experience under your belt? And travelling/making/promoting films does not count as life experience IMO.
      Now, I’m not saying early marriages never work out, but our expectations of relationships have changed. People would get engaged all the time in their 20′s during the 1910′s and 20′s, but society has changed on the whole. Personally I feel we’re more relaxed when it comes to relationships (which is good in a way) and we just seem less devoted and willing to put in immense amounts of effort in that 18-25 age bracket. My grandmother got married at 20 to a man she’d met only three times before and they were together until my gramps died last year because they worked and worked at it. If someone was pushed into an engagement to someone they barely knew in 2012 there’d be merry hell kicked up.
      ‘Scuse the ramblings, had too much coffee. But being the bitch I am, I can’t see this lasting for 50 years/the long run. Not when you factor in Miley’s famewhoring and love of going out sans her bra/or having it on show, their age and this is Hollywood.
      *steps off soapbox*

    • RocketMerry says:

      I agree, way too young.
      Statistics show that divorce rates are much higher in couples married before 25 y.o. (and I always thought that had to have something to do with the fact that it’s only at approximatively 25 y.o. that the human brain reaches its “maturity”, its full development).
      So given the fact that they are so young, so foolish and so into the Hollywood business… I call it a bad and short-lived idea.

      My bet is 2-3 years of marriage.

    • jess says:

      My cousin and her husband got married when they were 18 and have been married for over 20 years, BUT they are not celebrities either. I think if you are famous and just beginning your career (Liam is anyway, Miley is pretty much finished) its a bad idea.

      • Polkasox says:

        There are plenty of stories of people getting married young & it lasting, but I’m sure there are more that didn’t work. I’m 27 & have friends from high school that are already divorced. If I married the guy I was dating at 21, I would be too. If its a short marriage hopefully there won’t be kids – then you really are stuck with them FOREVER.

    • corny says:

      so sick of miss miley looking used and abused in these pics, debbie downer me too.

    • Jamie says:

      Normally I’d agree, but I don’t think you can really generalize them as being too young. It really depends. There are people who get married in their teens and the marriage ends up lasting a long time. Taylor Hanson was 19 when he married his 18 year old, knocked up wife. On Friday, they’ll have been married 10 years with 4 kids and another on the way. Then, there are those who get married in their 30′s and end up getting divorced in 2 or 3 years. Maturity has nothing to do with age. Am I shocked Miley and Liam are engaged? Yes. Do I think she’s mature enough to get married? No, but that has nothing to do with her age. It has to do with how she carries herself. Do I think it’s too soon for them to be engaged? Yes. But, it really does depend on each individual couple. My mom was 21 or 22 when she got married and my parents are still together.

    • Crazy Charlize says:

      Too young? In her circles, she’s an old maid.

    • apsutter says:

      Agreed. I think we’ve got another B. Spears on our hands. Both of them wanted to get married young and have babies so they rush into it. Plus, Miley’s been with him for 3 years so she thinks it’ll be great forever.

    • Devon says:

      19 and 22 are really young but they are around the same age that me and my husband were when we got engaged. I had just turned 23 and my husband was 20 when he proposed and we’d been together only 11 months not the 3 years that Miley and Liam have been together. We got married about 16 months later, he was 21, almost 22, and I was 24, and in August we will be celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary.

      Being young doesn’t automatically mean it’s going to be a fail. It’s definitely been hard at times, what marriage isn’t, but we want it to work and knew basically from the get go that this was it for us. We made a conscious choice to grow together as we are still growing and finding out who we are and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

      I wish Miley and Liam all the best. It’s an exciting time for them!

  2. Lucy says:

    Congrats to them even though I think they are both too young

  3. Franny says:

    She’s had experiences past those of a 19 year old…but it seems very young. I think you should be legally allowed to drink at your wedding…

    • Laura says:

      The girl cuts herself! And she’s obsessively working out every day. Her fans even see that she’s been having issues for a while. And Liam thinks this is a great time to propose marriage? Almost like he needs to reassure her that he loves her? I don’t get it. This has disaster written all over it.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Agree. This weird new crash diet/pilates obsession and resulting drastic weight drop, show a peak in insecurity/instability for her. Not good! Hope she can get healthy, physically and emotionally moving forward and that they can be a happy couple.

      • Orly says:

        Does she cut herself? I’ve never heard that. I heard Demi Lovato admitted she cuts, but never Miley.

      • Amelia says:

        There’s still a bit of debate surrounding the self harm stories. Google Miley and self harm and something will probably come up. Basically she got papped with ligatures/scars/scrapes on her wrist which were very uniform and linear and a few papers and shows ran with it.
        Continuing my run of bitchiness today, I’d say it was more crying for attention rather than deep-rooted self harm issues that could turn into a serious danger. I don’t mean to sound too up myself, but I have a little unwanted exp of this under my belt, and after a while, you learn to be sneaky about it. You go for subtle places like your upper legs or arms, or places you can cover with clothing. Not generally you lower wrists while wearing a tank top which very nicely puts your whole arm on display. My most likely unwanted 2 cents ^^
        I hope she sorts out this crash dieting/gym obsession and general insecurity thing. Although I don’t proclaim to be much of a fan of her, no-one really deserves that.

      • LaTiDa says:

        I know nothing about the self mutilation, however the engagement is probably the reason for the new fitness obsession. Every bride I know has done the exact same thing.

      • bns says:

        This doesn’t surprise me at all. Her breakdown is around the corner. Not hoping, just predicting.

      • normades says:

        I don’t think Miley is the cutter or hard core drug abuser that Demi was/is.

        People who have known them personally have referred to Demi as a huge coked up beyoth and Miley as a nice try hard. (See the reddit disney kid tell all on Reddit for a great read).

  4. says:

    Errr…. congrats?

    Don’t mean to be a b!tch but I don’t see this working out.

    • QQ says:

      ITA I gotta love that her indulgent hillbilly ass parents “are Thrilled”, She is their cash cow, of course they are supportive!

      Those Hemsworth dudes are hot as shit but worst taste in famewhores , Evah!!

      Let me leave before i comment on those teeth and the truck driver voice

      • Amanda_M87 says:

        I agree with everything you just said there.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        She brings out my mean streak… you covered most of my thoughts – she’s just so fugly.

        I still like all the other Disney girls better no matter how F*ed up they are or were.

        Maybe its because I hated her dad’s stupid 90s music; maybe its because I think for better or for worse all the others made it on their own talent, looks or likability not their father’s.

        I have no respect for Liam Hemsworth. Chris’ wife – eh – not everyone knows what she is. I didn’t until you guys told me.

        PS: as far as I know Demi always wears undies or a skirt long enough to hide the fact that she is not.

  5. mia girl says:

    Congratulations to Miley and Liam! I hope they wait a bit to get married and have a low key wedding. No fameho stuff please.

  6. Kim says:

    Too young hope they wait A few years

  7. blc says:

    19. She is 19! This is totally insane. I actually really like Miley but I think getting married at 19 is the worst idea ever.

  8. Rach says:

    Im sorry but theres no shot in hell at this lasting

  9. Lilalis says:

    If this is her engagement ring, it is surprisingly tasteful for her.

    I don’t understand why you would want to get married at such a young age.

    Congrats anyway.

  10. beyonce's bump says:

    Congratz! I love both of them together! and i echo the sentiments of them being young but hey who cares, its their life, life is short and all that jazz! :D

  11. Len says:

    Great, here we go: the ring, the proposal, the preparation, the celeb reactions, the BIG DAY, the pictures, the bladibladibla. And then the divorce. This was just announced and i’m over it already!

  12. Samigirl says:

    I also think they are both too young, but he seems really mature and I think he keeps her grounded. The two kids could make it. My mimi and papaw got married at 17 and just celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary…it can work if you work at it! :-)

    Congrats to the happy couple!

  13. Carrie says:

    probably too young but i’m happy for her she didn’t become Lindsay Lohan 2.0

    it’s funny ,there was many rumors/blind items on them like they have troubles,she’s jealous of his success,their very soon break-up…

  14. jano1981 says:

    Married at 19 myself and 12 years later I laugh when people say it will never work because of age. 50% of ALL marriages ends in divorce anyway I think. She seems happier than ever so I don’t think its a bad thing.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Congrats! I married at 25 (but I’ve been with my husband since I was 16). 7 years of marriage, 16 years together, and 2 kids later, we’re still together. It CAN work, but the odds are working against them.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Mort, me too! Met at 20, married at 25…
        Happy at 43:) 23 years together, 18 married and two kids.
        My mom and dad married at 18 and are still together. And OK, it was 69, but my dad was in a band and it was crazy times then too.

        If I had married my high school boyfriend I had at 16, I’d be one divorced bitch by now though.

        I think it’s awfully young to meet at 16 and stay together now, especially in Hwood.
        It is very hard when a spouse is gone for months at a time. Hence, long tours without me stopped a very long time ago. I have an “entertainment” marriage, but we tour as a family so none of those weird pressures of being apart.
        Will they even get to marriage is the bigger question…

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @tiff, congrats! Love the new photo. I think the problem with some of these celebs is that one isn’t willing to step out of the spotlight to let their partner shine for awhile. I think marriages like Matt Damon’s work because his wife isn’t concerned with the spotlight. Maybe Scarjo will find the same success with her current boyfriend and Miley will step aside to let Liam enjoy the spotlight. I think it’s great that you tour with your hubby. You’ve had success in your own right, in the medical field, and are confident enough to step aside to let him shine for awhile. I helped my husband build his business for 4 years and I know he appreciates the sacrifices I made. I think the give and take is a big reason why our relationship has lasted this long.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        OMG! You are my BFF 10 years ago…. Your numbers are identical: at 32 she had a toddler and a 3 month old. Last week they celebrated 17 years of marriage.

    • Jamie says:

      Congratulations! And I laugh when people say that too, because the divorce rate as it is is pretty high in general. It doesn’t matter when you get married, over 50% of marriages end in divorce anyway.

  15. Anna says:

    Not a shot in hell that this will last. Especially since the very beginning of his Hollywood stardom eclipsing hers already had her in a frenzy (getting papped every day without underwear, dramatic weight loss, desperate attention craving, etc). She’s more of a coddled child than most 19 year olds.

    • Monkey Jim says:

      Ha! I was going to mention the recent pap pics, too. So if she really has got a good head on her shoulders, it should have told her that riding a bike sans undies in front of paps isn’t a good idea. So, I’m not totally convinced as – as someone who married young myself (I was out of my teens, though) I know that marriage IS hard work, and if his fame skyrockets that will make it 100x harder… But, who knows, eh? They probably have as much of a chance as anyone, I guess.

    • Emma says:

      Miley’s probably going to be way richer than Hemsworth at the end of their careers 50 years from now thanks to Hannah Montana.

      All these big profile movies have proven that the “Stars” aren’t really stars…ie: stewart, pattinson, lautner, watson, grint have bombed outside of their respective series…and so too have we seen this with christensen in star wars.

      I don’t think miley’s worried about his fame eclipsing hers…she’s pretty dam famous for hannah montana and all her crazy stunts back in the day…Hemsworth will be forgotten in 5 years after Hunger Games is done.

  16. hateonit. says:

    yeah….idk if this will work out but whatever. now will come the stories about her wanting kids right away stress about the date and dress shopping her going to the hospital for exhaustion him flying right away to be by her side and all that other drama that comes with it. oh joy. now we get to see potato heads mug even more -_-

  17. Jade says:


    The weirdest thing about all this is that the media will cover this like Miley’s redeemtion. She’ll be the new Nicole richie. Marriage (and eventually kids) saved her from a life of child star hell.

  18. fluffybunny says:

    My parents were married when my mum was 19 and my dad 23. They’ve been married 33 years in August. I think it depends on the couple, famous or not. If this were someone like Lohan and whoever I’d be doubtful. However, despite a few weird moves here and there (and that weird photoshoot with her dad) Miley seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

  19. StopItLuke says:

    Cute couple :) Hope the best for them, I’ve really started to like Miley more as a person recently.

  20. dahlianoir says:

    Congrats to them ! She got an Hemsworth and these boys seem really sweet and grounded. Felicitations !

  21. Glimmer Bunny says:

    I’m 19 and I could NEVER see myself getting married now! I’ve only just started university!

    They do seem good together – but what’s the rush?

    • original almond says:

      Exactly, I think it would do her a lot of good to actually enroll into a university. It helps, more often than not, expand one’s worldviews and perspective and she could maybe find something which might interest her.

      I know if I had her money, I’d be applying all over the place for whatever majors took my fancy. Marriage would be the absolute last thing on my mind.

      I know that nearly everyone has stories about friends or family members who had long, happy marriages despite marrying young, but these are different times and there’s really no fair comparison to by-gone eras.

  22. Jackie says:

    ya, seems about right. long term, i can see her being a 4 marriages kind of gal.

  23. Rianic says:

    I hate to say it, but in the American South, girls marry young. Even now I see 17-18 year olds doing it. In the 90s, most of my friends graduated immediately after high school – one just two days later. My friend who waited until she was 22, people talked terrible about her. I was 28 – I can only imagine what was said about me

    • gee says:

      I hear ya! My brother is a soldier and every time I visit him and see all his southern friends they treat me like I am some horribly unfortunate spinster.. at the ripe ole age of 24. Most of his friends are 22, 23 with a wife and a couple of kids.

    • Amy says:

      No, it’s true that in the American South, the girls tend to get married and pregnant right out of high school. My friend from NC is getting married in September and she is only 24 (and had only been dating the guy for a year before they got engaged!). I think it has a lot to do with the strong military tradition in the South and the whole Bible Belt thing. They’re more traditional down there.

      • Choupette says:

        I’m from the South. Neither I nor any of my friends became pregnant in high school or married before our mid-twenties. Please don’t lump the Southerners all in this group. It doesn’t happen nearly as much as it used to. Early marriages and pregnancies happen in ALL states, in ALL regions. Fight the stereotype people. The South isn’t your bitch.

      • Lindy says:

        THANK YOU Choupette. Also born and raised in the South. It was only when I lived in Indiana for almost a decade that I encountered super duper trashy girls and guys of the sort who seem like some hillbilly stereotype. My high school friends and classmates are doctors, business owners, lawyers, college professors… Sorry, but Miley is engaged at 19 because of her unique personal history and experiences, not because she is Southern.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Yeah I saw the same thing 20 years ago. I’m 42, childless by choice single more or less by choice (the childless by choice has a lot to do with my being single :) )

      One of my college roommates was from an affluent suburb of B’ham, AL. She was as jealous of 20 year old brides as I was of her parents house in the wooded hills above B’ham. I have never been that jealous of a house. It was so niice – not ritzy totally upper middle class but there was something homey yet almost grand about it at the same time.

      Didn’t Britney suffer from that as well.?

  24. Cinderella says:

    That will keep her in the spotlight awhile longer.

  25. Sisi says:

    I wonder what the wedding cake will look like

  26. birdie says:

    Congrats! Wish them well!

  27. Talie says:

    I was certain he would break up with her, but looking at his family…they seem to do things pretty young. Even though Chris Hemsworth looks older, he is around 26 or 27 and is married with a child.

  28. sarahtonin says:

    A Hollywood marriage at 19. If I was invited I get them a divorce attorney voucher as a wedding gift.

  29. bobo says:

    Do her parents really agree with this? Of course they do! Ha ha!

  30. gigi says:

    Aaaaand just like that, Liam lost half his hot points. Well, I hope it works out for them.

  31. Amy says:

    So who’s idea was this really, Miley’s or Liam’s? I like them together and I wish them the best, but I hope they plan a long engagement.

  32. Orly says:

    Congrats! I like them as a couple. Hopefully they wait a while before getting married. Those Hemsworth men sure are the marrying kind.

  33. Izzy says:

    If she was a mature 19, I might co-sign this. But she still has a lot of growing up to do. And if Liam was my son, I would not be too thrilled about him marrying an immature girl (not woman… GIRL) who runs around acting like trailer trash playing peek-a-boo booby.

  34. Alexis says:

    I like them together, but this seems like an effort (on both of their parts) to “make sure they’re together” despite the fact that a lot’s changing for both of them. That’s not a way to use marriage. Marriage isn’t a panacea. They’re young, and they could change and grow apart before they’re twenty-five, and marriage can’t stop that. Unfortunately the marriage might precipitate there being kids in the mix by the time they break up. Hopefully this works out. Don’t know much about him, but Miley seems like a nice person.

  35. Jaime says:

    Oh dear…

    I get it. They’re young, they’re in love…Liam is HOT. I would. But do I see this lasting past her 25th birthday? Oh hells no. She’s in a career slump. Things are uncertain. Liam seems like the answer, and in some ways he probably is. But, what happens when her career has an uptick? Or worse, what if it doesn’t and Liam continues on the path of his big brother and becomes a mega-star? How will that work?

    I’m worried and I don’t even know them. I never liked Miley until she hooked up with Liam. She’s chilled so much in the past three years and grown up. I honestly wish them the best, but I’m doubtful.

  36. Jenna says:

    Err…congrats I guess? Sheesh. I’m 22 and I don’t even want to think about getting engaged, let alone married!

  37. Snowangel says:

    isn’t it a Bible thumper thing to get married young ?Since they are not supposed to be having sex before marriage. Not that I would care if she were my daughter, maybe her parents are pushing her into it.

  38. NT says:

    I really want to say something nice–so I’ll say congrats. BUT…this is just way too young.

    And to the people that say “Yeah, but some people aren’t even mature at 30″. Yes, that’s true. But, to people that are older than 25, back me up here…we change SO much in our 20s. It’s vital we take that time to understand who we are as a person. I’m not saying they both sleep around or anything, but what was wrong with just living together? If I was Miley’s mom, I would advise her against this. But then again…look at her mom.

    Btw, this sorta reminds me of when Jessica Simpson got married to Nick Lachey at what…22? Yeahh….that ended well

    • Chatcat says:

      OK NT…here’s some back up via my own soapbox.

      TOO YOUNG. Besides the fact that it is a celeb couple and predestined to fail, 19 and 22 you are still in the sandbox play phase of your life.

      I was married at 21, just shy of 22 and my hubby same age. I have been married now for 27 years, 3 grown kids and a successful career. Sounds great huh? Well it has been hard work, compromise, some broken dreams, some times of just going through the motions, etc. If I/we had waited till our mid 20′s or so it would have been better for each of us I am sure. I watch my 20 somethings now and realize that I have some regrets marrying young…I don’t let the regrets define who I am now, but they are there and they are real.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Chatcat, you just described marriage. It’s always like that. No one has a smooth marriage through that long or they LIE!

        Not that I even see Miley lasting with this, but all marriage is damned hard, especially the first 7 years!

        19? No way would I get married at 19 and I would KILL my daughter and the boy if that was going on in my house. That said, the South is a really different place in the US.
        I’m starting to think we should have drawn the line the other way. West and East. West gets Colorado westward and BC. Canadians of BC, want to start an awesome new country with Cali, Colo, WA, AZ and Nevada? Could be fun, gorgeous and lots of sports and cool people and legal weed.
        I love it! :)

        @Tiff…”I’m starting to think we should have drawn the line the other way. West and East. West gets Colorado westward and BC. Canadians of BC, want to start an awesome new country with Cali, Colo, WA, AZ and Nevada? Could be fun, gorgeous and lots of sports and cool people and legal weed.” AWESOME IDEA! LMFAO…

        Chatcat. We get Hawaii too! I’m calling my new country the United States of Awesomeness. Who wants to move!
        I love it!

        @originaltiffany – you can keep AZ :)

  39. lucy2 says:

    Way too young, especially in the business they’re both in and with all the pressures of fame.
    If they’re really happy together that’s great, but make it a looooong engagement.

  40. Macey says:

    “Cyrus is in the studio working on a new album”

    Just reading that line made my ears hurt.
    I dont mind Miley but her voice is awful, one of the few that actually make me change the station.
    That said, I hope it lasts but I doubt it will. I think there was a bunch of rumors about him cheating on her while on the HG set.

  41. Carolyn says:

    This is just celeb PR to keep interest chugging along for these two. Celeb engagements don’t always end in marriage. Miley’s desperate to hook him – a lot of people just don’t take her seriously and she’s in real need of any PR. Her fanbase hasn’t grown with her at all.

  42. LittleDeadGirl says:

    In the real world 19 is way too young but in Hollywood it’s gonna end in divorce in like four years no matter what the age so who cares? I’d marry the only Hemsworth boy if I could but both are hot. I’d marry him too if he asked and I was 19 -lol- I can’t fault her for saying yes. Hope they have fun while it lasts.

  43. Justin says:

    She’s the next lindsey Lohan.

  44. Elizabeth says:

    Two words – too young!

  45. Amanda_M87 says:

    They are both too young to be engaged IMO.

  46. Kate says:

    Congrats to her. I hope it lasts. They do look great together.

  47. HotPockets says:

    I can’t jump on the bandwagon and say it’s too young, she is very, very young, but I met my husband when I was 19. We didn’t get engaged until I was 22 and then we married when I was 23 and he was 29. It’s been 5 and a half years and we are still going strong, so ya never know. My best friend married when she was 18 and it has been 7 years for her and her husband.

    I do hear that the divorce rates are higher for those who marry under the age of 25, but you have to consider the different reasons couples marry, religious values, because the girl was pregnant or maybe other pressures that are present.

    With regards to everything and setting aside their age, Hollywood marriages don’t seem to work, especially with both parties are actors.

  48. menlisa says:

    Aww congrats!!
    I wish them all the best!!

  49. CreamSoda says:

    Regardless of age, the fact that they’ve broken up so many times already doesn’t seem like a good sign.

  50. teehee says:

    Miley, honey.

    You’re 19.

    “rest of your life”…. ok a 19 year old can truly love or have fallen in love, so to speak, but the actual process of learning who they THEMSELVES are and finishing BECOMING themselves, not to mention learning WHAT a relationship IS and HOW to behave in one so that it WORKS, etc– does NOT happen before you are 19!!

    A good sign would be, if you can stay together without a wedding. Weddings dont equal more fun or less work, and it isnt just an expression of your love or feelings, its a practical, material, social commitment that too few people know the meaning of.

    Miley, Miley. *shaking head* She’s a sweet and somewhat smart girl, but its just too young.

  51. Tiffany says:

    I wonder if a pregnacy annoucement is coming shortly. *Ducks as a book is thrown*
    What I say???

  52. MoonDoggie says:

    He might get more work based on that “Hunger Games” movie, but he’s kind of meh. He won’t be a star. He’ll just be a face that seems familiar. Before HG he was basically “Miley Cyrus’s Boyfriend”. He’ll go back to that role before long. Engaged doesn’t mean married.

  53. Rachel says:

    I don’t think that’s her engagement ring. They showed a pic of it on GMA this morning, and even though I was just glancing at the tv occasionally while I did my makeup, that doesn’t look at all like the same setting.

    I’m happy for them. Excited for her. I’ve never had any particular feelings or opinions on her one way or the other, but being with Liam seems to ground her.

    There are people who view marriage as disposable and people who understand that marriage is going to be hard. You’re going to have to work on it every day. But they make the choice to put in the work and stay strong through the hard times. I don’t think that has anything to do with age. Liam seems pretty solid. I’ll be routing for them.

  54. Toni says:

    Miley’s desperate to stay relevant is all I’m picking up from this.

  55. kristiner says:

    Hmm…Miley you knocked up? Engaged at 19? Celebrities don’t do that.

    He’s 22 and she’s 19? Billy Ray is a country guy. His daughter may be living with her BF and tattooed and wild but Southern/country roots will still take effect:

    *cocks gun* Boy, you marry my daughter so my grandbaby comes legitimate.

    Wasn’t Trace engaged to Brenda Strong when it seemed VERY VERY likely that Brenda was pregnant? I think she did have a miscarriage.

  56. aquarius64 says:

    I’m sorry I can’t feel this. 19 is too young (so is 22 for the intended bridegroom), and with the reported issues about her (cutting?) this is not good. I know she’s of age to marry without parental consent, but really. Cue the bump watch on Miley; it won’t be long before rumors that this is a shotgun marriage start swirling about them.

  57. Rachna says:

    There’s a lot of negativity surrounding this news. Why? No matter what, two people need to forge their own life and create their paths good or bad. All you guys speculating on their engagement not lasting should realize that Miley doesn’t seem like another Britney. She has always been in relationships, rather than in clubs. They seem much more solid than any other celebrity couples out there. Is 19 young? Maybe. But saying they’ll divorce, and she’ll have a breakdown is negative beyond anything. Have you guys forgotten what it’s like to be 19? Life is beautiful. You’re invincible. Let them live.

  58. hillbilly in the corner says:

    Ninteen is young if you are a sheltered young girl who has always lived at home and never experienced life away from family but believe me that you lady has been working and playing in the adult world since she was 11…and even though Billy Ray and his wife have done a pretty good job of keep her in line without too many slip ups she is doing pretty good…..that is NOT a immature 19 yr old…..
    and He from my understanding comes from a similar background so I really have to disagree that they are to young to marry…..
    I was 19 yrs old to my husbands 24 yrs old and we have been married now for over 45 years ….And no I was not a shelter child either…
    If left alone and with good support and most important love between them they will be fine.

  59. Chinoiserie says:

    Crongrats! I hope this last but I doupt it. But because they are a Hollywood couple not because of their age. I know plenty of people who married young and made it last. But the couples ( and I ) are christians and serious about marriage. I dont know any “normal” couples who married young and lasted. But I think Miley could actually be serious about marriage but it just seems so odd to think that a Hollywood marriage could last.

  60. Belle says:

    Agree that she is way too young. He seems really mature for his age, and well-grounded… but Miley, not so much. What do I know though, I’m still shocked that they’ve been together for three years!

    If that is her engagement ring, it is really pretty. Seems like something he would have picked out himself… classic and elegant.

  61. dorothy says:

    Great! Maybe now we won’t be subjected to those tranny truck stop shirts that show her side boob. Grow up, have some pride and put some clothes on.

  62. Gene Parmesan says:

    Shotgun wedding?? I dunno i wish them the best, i never want ill for anyone especially people i don’t know but Miley and i are the same age and i can’t even imagine saying any type of vows atm, im too young and stupid. But maybe she is far mature??

  63. HappyJoyJoy says:

    From someone who got married at 19 (ten years ago) I don’t care how much beyond your years you have lived, there are experiences that simply come with time. I hope they have a long engagement. I assure you they will both be very different people in 3 years. While me and my husband are still together it hasn’t always been a smooth ride, because when you’re still under 25 you’re pretty much raising each other. It’s hard enough to grow up on your own, let alone growing up having to worry about someone else’s growth too. Just my two cents…

  64. Em says:

    Remember this blind item about the A++ tweener sleeping with her boyfriend’s (married) brother?

    It’s not really a blind item since it seems to fit them to a T. This is pure PR and desperation on Miley’s part.

  65. Patricia says:

    Why is it that in every picture I see of him he looks like he has no idea what the hell is going on?

  66. hannah says:

    If she got engaged on May 31, surely the ring in the picture from MARCH can’t be her engagement ring.

  67. RobN says:

    Of course it won’t last, but he’s crazy hot and it’ll be fun as long as it does.

  68. Oi says:

    Ring looks like he got it out of a vending machine. Sorry, but it does. Why can’t celebs got decent jewelry anymore?

  69. barb says:

    Way too young of course, but when you’re 19 you don’t know that.

  70. kelbear says:

    He can’t even legally go out and have a drink to celebrate with her…

  71. lunabell says:

    Congrats to them. Don’t really care one way or the other if it works out but…the 15 year old shipper in me just died a bit because now all my Gale and Katniss fantasies are ruined. Dammit!

  72. Sarah says:

    It’s only a relatively recent thing to get married in your late twenties-early thirties, and the success rate for marriages has never been lower. Late teens and early twenties used to be the norm. Make of that what you will.

  73. Mark says:

    Her career is on the fast track to being over. Guess she needed some media attention, and here it is. Liam is a decent actor (like Chris better) and I’ve seen Miley do ok at times, but she is no great star and can be very trashy and annoying from what I’ve seen. I don’t think she counted on Liam becoming the bigger star. The only time we see Miley now really is when she has shown up for premieres for HIS films. If they indeed even marry, I doubt it will last but hey, good luck. I send that last part to Hemsworth because maybe I’m wrong, but something tells me this whole thing was probably her idea.

  74. Marianne says:

    When I read that this morning before starting work…my jaw hit the floor.

    I know they’ve been dating for 3 years and that’s longer than most Hollywood relationships…but they are both so young.I don’t won’t to be a negative nelly…but I just don’t see this lasting.

  75. Genevieve says:

    Oh, please. Please! Just….PULEEZ.

    Their respective ages doom their marriage to failure, as well as the highs/lows and faithlessness of their industry. Also, am I the only person who saw the blurb on BlindGossip about the “franchise celeb” with a coke problem and a “fake franchise romance” two days ago? Whether it’s entirely accurate or not…at least one part of this couple has confirmed substance, um, “exploration” issues, shall we say. No biggie, I personally spent most of my teens and twenties partying my a$$ off (whilst juggling uni, modeling, etc., not simply being a celebrity), so there’s no judgement here. Simply a reality check.

    Don’t like or dislike this couple…just think it’s a horribly bad idea.

  76. Mare says:

    Hard to believe they will stay together for life and even harder to believe they will stay monogamous. Maybe I’m too pessimistic but looking at couples I know… it’s hard. Especially when they hit 40, 45. By that time, they’ve already been married for a long time and a bit bored with each other and still young enough to question how it would be to try something else.

  77. Hakura says:

    Positive it’s been said, but haven’t gotten through all the comments yet.

    Agree with everyone, way too young. Hell, I’m 26 & still feel way too young. I noticed where he apparently prefers Miley when she’s not running around in show-biz (easy to understand, as she was obviously pretty out of control when she was).

    But they’re suddenly engaged, just as Liam’s star is majorly on the rise, & Miley is back to recording? It means they’ll both be in show-biz, busy with their own promotions (& the lifestyles that come with it).

    Up to now, Liam hasn’t been a ‘big’ star, so there’s a lot of aspects of that he’ll have to deal with for the first time, which can be major temptation. & Miley, without Liam to keep her grounded, might go crazy with the pot or worse, like before.

    I hate to be such a downer. I do wish them luck. It’s just not looking good. I really hope Miley doesn’t start having children right away. It’s a change you can’t take back, not even if you aren’t ready.

  78. jen7waters says:

    Congrats! The babies will be gorgeous :D

  79. kate says:

    Am I cynical to think that just because they used the jewelry designer NEIL LANE for the ring that it is just for PR? That this “engagement” will last for a few months/years without a wedding? Neil Lane is the Kim Kardashian of Jewelers. He supplies the rings for the Bachelor on ABC for chrissake!

    Or am I totally off base and people with money and class actually use him for a legit designer of wedding bands? I just thought he sold out to commercial stuff and since then has become a reality show pimp. Please set me straight if I am off base.

    So congrats?

  80. Newtsgal says:

    Dear God, just don’t let them breed!

  81. Camille (The original) says:

    I don’t see these two making it for the long haul, yes she is young in age, but she also seems quite immature. I guess we will see. Well good luck to them both.

  82. tru tru says:

    she was part of a blind item, it stated that she’d do anything for attention and to be back on top and is extremely jealous of the other Nick kids/barely 20 something’s success.

    this will never happen.

  83. operagirl says:

    I do believe they’re in love, passionately, madly so. It’s written all over their faces, it’s written in each glance, it’s written in their body language toward each other in unguarded moments. They also both seem to be the marrying kind, i.e. seem to value marriage. So I will just wish them all the best and a lifetime of happiness, and with a little luck and a lot of dedication, they can make it as well as anyone can.

  84. Quinn says:

    I’ll be shallow…that ring is hideous. Perhaps this is not THE ring.

  85. UniqJaz says:

    It’s not going to last.

  86. Isa says:

    I almost didn’t click on this story because I knew it would be a lot of comments about how they’re too young, don’t really know themselves and it won’t last. But I did anyway. It makes me want to defend my own marriage- started dating when I was 16, married a few days after turning 19, and have been for 5 years. But honestly, I don’t see this lasting either. Simply because she seems so immature and they’re celebrities. Yes, there are some couples that make it work but with high divorce rates the odds are against them anyway. Plus the earlier you get married the longer you have to make it work.

    • Isa says:

      Oh and I’m a little annoyed bc when they do split up everyone will be like…see!? My generalization was correct!

      • operagirl says:

        Isa — No worries. Don’t listen to anyone else’s opinion about your marriage. It will be what you and your husband make of it.

        FWIW, my husband and I married at 20 and had children shortly thereafter. We’ve been married 26 years now, and are still very much in love. He still sweeps me off my feet, and loves knowing he still makes my heart beat faster. Yes, we’ve had tough times — very — but we made it through it and are stronger for it.

  87. normades says:

    It probably won’t last but I’m happy for her. Liam seems to have been really good for her. She got away from her crazy life and toxic parents for a while.

    At first I thought he was a dumb lug, but now I think he’s a pretty strong guy whose not a fame ho. Miley clearly worships him and he seems to wear the pants in the relationship.

    I think they will have kids young. The Hemsworth boys seem like fatherly types.

    But Liam > Chris. Liam is just so hot and I love his grin.

  88. I’m really inspired together with your writing talents and also with the structure on your weblog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you modify it yourself? Either way stay up the nice quality writing, it is rare to peer a nice blog like this one these days..
