Wedding Party in the U.S.A.!
Miley Cyrus and Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth are engaged to be married after three years of dating, their reps confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.
“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus, 19, tells PEOPLE.
Australian actor Hemsworth, 22, who met Cyrus when they costarred in The Last Song in 2009, proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane.
Next up for the couple: Cyrus is in the studio working on a new album, while Hemsworth is currently filming Empire State in New Orleans. He’ll also shoot Paranoia with Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman before beginning production on the second Hunger Games installment.
I’m not entirely sure, but I think I speak for all of us when I say “what?” Because I really, really was not expecting Miley to get engaged anytime soon. Sure, there were all those rumors a few months ago when she was wearing that ring around everywhere, and it wasn’t like I thought that Liam would dump her soon or anything like that, but … I don’t know. I guess I’m just not ready for our little Miley to grow up yet.
But on the other hand, you have to give her some credit. Because damn, girl, way to go on this one. And I absolutely cannot wait to see the ring.
