Miley Cyrus has gotten engaged to “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth, People is reporting.
Cyrus, 19, has been dating Hemsworth, 22, for three years, and the engagement has been confirmed to the magazine by their representatives. A wedding date has not yet been set.
“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” said the singer/actress.
Australian actor Hemsworth and Cyrus met when they shared screen credits in 2009’s “The Last Song.” People reports that he proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring in a gold band.
As People’s Julie Jordan told TODAY on Wednesday, “It’s kind of sweet, because they shared Miley’s first on-screen kiss together. They’ve been together since she was 16. They have a very playful relationship. Very real. Very honest.”
Added Jordan, “I think Miley has obviously gotten a good dose of what fame and fortune is like, and now with Liam coming into his own…. She’s very excited about his success, and I think they’re going to be good for each other. They’re definitely going to keep each other balanced.”
People’s Kate Coyne told TODAY’s Ann Curry that the Cyrus family are happy for their daughter, even if Miley might seem a bit young: “They are thrilled about it,” she said. “Liam has been a part of their family for a while now; he’s been around. He’s not just somebody who showed up out of the woodwork.”
Rumors swirled at the end of March that the two had gotten engaged, when a ring Cyrus was wearing generated some buzz, but she Tweeted at the time: “I’m not engaged. I’ve worn this same ring on this finger since November! People just wanna find something to (talk) about! It’s a topaz people!”
