Rumors have flown, and controversial topics have surfaced about the newly engaged couple: The Last Song cuties Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. Cyrus and Hemsworth are thrilled to be engaged. It seems her large family is also over the moon according to inside sources! Her parents love the couple together, especially Cyrus’s dad, music legend Billy Ray Cyrus. Many wonder, are they too young to tie the knot? Will they change as individuals as time goes on? Could their puppy love wear off? It is difficult to jump to conclusions, but everyone has his or her own opinion.

After months of a rumored commitment and a break up, singer Miley Cyrus, 19, is officially engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth, 22, whom she met when the pair co-starred in The Last Song in 2009. Hemsworth proposed to Cyrus on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond. “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus told People magazine. After breaking up a year after The Last Song, the couple reunited and rekindled their love in April of 2011. The couple sparked engagement rumors in March after Cyrus was seen wearing a diamond ring on her finger at an event in Arizona, but representatives for both denied it at the time. Hemsworth claims he fell in love with Cyrus while filming the Nicholas Sparks movie. “She makes me really happy,” he says. Meanwhile, Cyrus expressed her love to her fans, thanking them for being there for her throughout her career. “I’m happy to share this news with you all,” she tweeted.

Cyrus’ family and friends are very supportive of the young couple. “Billy Ray is so supportive of Miley and totally adores Liam. He absolutely loves Liam and adores them together,” a source says in People magazine. Cyrus is very grateful for how warming and welcoming her family has been towards their relationship, and any girl would be lucky to have a tight-knit family surrounding them like Cyrus’. Cyrus claims that the comfort of her family has gotten her through the worst of the media’s snide remarks and doubts. Furthermore, another source says Billy Ray, 50, has cherished all of the time he has spent with Hemsworth. Not only does Hemsworth spend time with the family, but he has become a significant part of Cyrus and her family’s life. Billy Ray even tweeted, “All I ever hoped for as a daddy was to see my kids reach their dreams.”

Currently, Cyrus is working on a new album, People reported, and Hemsworth is filming Empire State in New Orleans. They both will continue to be busy with their singing and movie star occupations. Cyrus catapulted to international fame after starring in the Hannah Montana television series on the Disney Channel. Since then, her career has skyrocketed with her singing and acting. Born Destiny Hope Cyrus, she earned the nickname “Smiley” as a child, which was shortened to Miley. After some time, she legally changed her name to Miley.

In the past, Cyrus has been the subject of controversy. At only 15, she posed provocatively for photos that ultimately ended up all over the Internet. At 18, she acknowledged that smoking a bong filled with the herb salvia was “a bad decision” after a video surfaced, and last year, she joked that she was a “stoner” and had to deal with the consequences of her statements.

Steering clear of controversy to this point, Hemsworth, a native of Melbourne, Australia, started acting in high school, according to an Internet Movie Database biography, and his brothers, Chris and Luke, followed him into show business. The Hunger Games was one of his big movies, along with The Last Song, that have brought him international fame.

At their young ages, it is predicted that Cyrus and Hemsworth’s marriage, or even their engagement, will be short-lived. Junior Lauren Dickey claims, “Miley is way too young to be even thinking about something that serious. She’s too immature.” Many agree with Dickey, claiming that Cyrus and Hemsworth are making a very rash decision. Senior Nikki Walker agrees, “Miley isn’t mature enough to make such a big decision.” Conversely, many think that love has nothing to do with age. “You can love someone and make the decision to spend the rest of your life with them at any age,” claims Senior Alejandra Gomez. Junior Amanda Haley adds, “Neither of them have a past with other celebrities, so it’s meant to be.” Whether they work out or not, living life in the spotlight will come with criticism.

In all, Cyrus and Hemsworth are happily engaged, and they do not seem to take into consideration what the media or society has to say. They are in love and generously supported by the Cyrus family. Some agree and disagree with the circumstances, but ultimately it is up to the couple on the label they want to give their relationship.
