Singer Miley Cyrus has confirmed the news that she is engaged. She’s been dating Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth for approximately three years. He popped the question to her last weekend, according to reports.
Hemsworth, 22, presented Cyrus, 19, with a 3.5 carat Neil Lane diamond engagement ring on May 31st, which were confirmed to THR by Hemsworth’s rep. With Cyrus tweeting a day later, “heaven is a place on earth.” Then on Wednesday of last week, perhaps still in a state of bliss over her pending marriage, she tweeted, “Life is Beautiful.”
The actress later told People magazine, “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.”
Cyrus and Hemsworth met while on the set of “The Last Song” in 2009 and have been dating ever since with a slight break in 2010. Hemsworth portrays the character ‘Gale’ in “The Hunger Games” series, who is a strong supporter of ‘Katniss Everdeen’, played by Jennifer Lawerence, his closest friend and self trained expert in hunting.
Earlier in the year Cyrus had shot down previous rumors of the couple’s engagement when she was then spotted wearing a big diamond ring, But she claimed that, “I’ve worn this same ring on this finger since November!”
