Miley Cyrus‘ journey to adulthood was fast, furious and consistent — she had her own TV show at age 14, released her first album at 15, stirred up the first of many major controversies by posing backless for a photograph and giving a lapdance to an adult at 16, sexed up her image with the help of bird feathers at 17, and got caught smoking up some salvia at 18. And now, at 19-years-old, the former Disney star is engaged to 22-year-old Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, her co-star in the big-screen romance The Last Song.
Miley and Liam may seem a little too young to get married, but think how much they’ve already done in their three years as a couple: they’ve acted together, adopted a puppy together, Punk’d together. Journey through the lovebirds’ relationship in our gallery, then grab an eyeful of Miley’s 3.6 carat engagement ring. It’s pretty cool.
