The news of her engagement surfaced last week and it made the world do a giant double take going , “Oh wow..she grew up so fast!”. We tend to forget that the girl who used to be a teeny bopping “Hannah Montana” is only 19 years old.
That’s right. Barely an adult.
But she’s no stranger to making headline news, having lived a semi scandalous or should we say, “full” life to date. At 15 years old, the Disney star landed right smack in a photo scandal. Three years later, at 18 years old, she was caught on camera bonging (read: marijuana). And now, Miley Cyrus is well on her way to wedded bliss with her 22 years old Australian actor boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth.
This is, of course, after going through several breakups in the three years that they were together.
Jeweler Neil Lane reportedly told People that the 3.5 carat cushion-cut gem set in a gold band with smaller diamonds around the outside was specifically made that way because Liam wanted something beautiful and unusual.
And of her engagement, Miley said, “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam!”
However, her parents, while they’ve always thought of Liam as part of the family and are excited for her, are hoping that they wouldn’t rush to the altar just yet. Family, friends, and fans are urging the couple to take it slow including Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, who said that the two should give it some time before actually tying to knot.
Ah, to be young and in love and impulsive. We all know what happens to the Hollywood stars who jump into a marriage way too soon, right? So let’s slow down and not make headline news from the wrong reason again shall we, Miley?
