The Australian actor proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat Neil Lane ring, a cushion-cut diamond set in an Art Noveau-inspired gold band.
Miley and Liam first met in 2009 on the set of their movie, ‘The Last Song.’ She named him as her ‘first serious boyfriend’ after teenage romances with Nick Jonas and model Justin Gaston. But true love didn’t always run smoothly and the pair split briefly in 2010 and again in November of last year, before being reconciled.
‘LOL’ actress Miley told ‘People’ magazine: ‘I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.’
The couple’s parents are said to be ‘thrilled’ at the engagement. Miley’s parents Billy Ray and Tish already consider Liam to be ‘one of the family.’
