Brace Yourselves: Miley Cyrus + Liam Hemsworth Got Engaged
It’s been confirmed: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are officially engaged. Um… Congrats?
Wow. Just… wow. Soooo, this happened: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth got engaged. Congrats? I guess? Well, yes, congrats; but still. Is anyone else a little “eh” about the whole thing?
Their reps both confirmed the engagement to People; additionally, Miley gushed to the magazine, “I’m so hay to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.” The Hunger Games star popped the question to the teen queen on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from Neil Lane—the same jeweler who designed Britney Spears’ engagement ring—which we will no doubt be able to see up close and personal sometime in the very near future.
Bear in mind that Miley, who met Liam on the set of their 2009 film The Last Song, is only 19, while Liam is 22. They’ve more or less been together for three years, though they broke up in August of 2010 before getting back together that November. But is it just me, or do these two crazy kids seem awfully young to be tying the knot?
No word on when they’re planning the wedding to be yet; Liam is probably the busier of the two—he’s currently shooting Empire State in New Orleans, after which he’ll be filming Paranoia with Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman, and of course let’s not forget about the second Hunger Games film, Catching Fire—so I imagine their wedding will mostly depend on his schedule. Do you think they’re going to go for a disgustingly huge and ostentatious wedding? Or will they keep it small and simple and maybe a surprise?
Anyway, congratulations again… Or something… It’s going to be a long day, isn’t it? I’d better go get another cup of coffee.
