Miley Cyrus engaged
Miley Cyrus is engaged.

The former Disney star has been dating The Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth on-and-off for three years. She has confirmed he has popped the question, explaining she is delighted.

“I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” she told People.

Liam proposed on May 31. He presented his 19 year-old partner with a 3.5-carat diamond ring created by famed jewellery designer Neil Lane.

The couple haven’t released any further details of the engagement and it is not known if they have started planning their wedding yet.

The pair met while they were making the 2009 movie The Last Song. They briefly split in August 2010 but reunited a year later and have been happy ever since. Earlier this year, Miley sparked rumours she was engaged after posting a picture of a band on her ring finger on Twitter. She later denied the reports, saying she was just showing off a manicure.

“I’m not engaged,” she wrote. “I’ve worn the same ring on this finger since November! People just wanna find something to [talk] about! It’s a topaz people!”
