According to reports, Liam Hemsworth had to work really hard to get Billy Ray Cyrus’ approval to ask Miley Cyrus to marry him! A source told the Chicago Sun-Times:
Underneath it all, Liam is a very solid guy with good, old-fashioned values. At the end of the day, I think that’s won over Billy Ray. Billy Ray has always been super-protective of Miley. While he’s become very fond of Liam – as has the entire family – Billy Ray was just worried about Miley still being a teenager. On top of that, there’s the whole entertainment world thing, where so many young stars get married young, and then it falls apart fairly quickly.
Billy Ray Cyrus Tweeted his blessing for the young couple yesterday when the news of their engagement broke.
