Looks like Miley Cyrus can be tamed after all! The “Party In The U.S.A.” singer is engaged to her longtime boyfriend and The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth, People confirms. ”I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Miley told the magazine. Shortly after the happy news broke Wednesday morning (Jun. 6) Miley tweeted: “thank you for all the love today :) I’m happy to share this news with you all. I feel like all my dreams are coming true. ❤ have a great day”.
The couple, ages 19 and 22, respectively, have been dating since 2009 when they met and fell in love on set of Last Song, and reportedly became engaged on May 31, with an Art Nouveau-inspired 3.5-carat cushion-cut diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane. Experts have estimated the ring to be valued in the $100,000 range.
Miley and Liam will be hard pressed to find the time to start planning their nuptials right away: She’s headed into the studio to work on her fourth album, and he’s slated to being filming a handful of movies in the coming year, including the second Hunger Games installment. A long engagement may be a good idea, at least for Miley’s sake. The bride-to-be wouldn’t be able to legally enjoy a glass of champagne on her big day until November 23, 2013 — unless, of course, they get hitched in Liam’s native Australia, where the legal drinking age is 18.
