It’s official. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged yet again, Yahoo Celebrity can confirm.
“They are both really excited and happy,” a source tells Yahoo. “It might seem fast to people who don’t know them, but they started reconnecting months ago.”
It wasn’t until the “Wrecking Ball” singer, 23, was spotted hanging out with Liam, 26, and the rest of the Hemsworth family in Australia over the holidays that it was revealed the couple had rekindled their romance. A few weeks later, Miley was seen wearing her Neil Lane engagement ring and a moving truck was spotted in front of Liam’s Malibu, California, home.
The young couple met in 2009 while filming “The Last Song” and got engaged three years later. Miley and Liam called off their nuptials in 2013, right around the time the wild singer was really making an effort to distance herself from her Hannah Montana days (think that VMAs performance with Robin Thicke). During their time apart, it was Miley who found herself in other relationships. She dated Patrick Schwarzenegger for several months last year and was also linked to Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell. But she had never really gotten over Hemsworth.
In November, there were signs Miley and Liam might have reunited. It was revealed that the pop star helped her former beau adopt a new dog, and then she cryptically posted a screenshot of a text someone sent her saying, “I love u.”
“They just wanted to keep their relationship out of the spotlight while they figured things out,” an insider tells People. “Liam never liked how exposed his life was with Miley."
Apparently this time around, Cyrus is "making changes for their relationship to work. They both seem much more mature.”
The source adds, “Miley wants to get married. His family was very hesitant about a marriage in the past, but they really got to know Miley better when she spent time in Australia a few weeks ago. Everyone seems excited that they are back together.”
Guess it wasn’t their “Last Song” after all.
