Miley Cyrus’ Dad Hopes For Long Engagement

Thursday, June 7, 2012

MILEY Cyrus‘ father is worried that she’ll rush down the aisle now that she’s engaged to boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.

The former Disney star recently announced her plans to marry the Aussie hunk, but Billy Ray Cyrus hopes his daughter has a long engagement — because they’re both so young.

“They knew it was coming. Liam lived with Miley and her parents when they began dating in 2009. Billy Ray and Tish love him like a son,” a source said.

“However, Billy Ray is concerned about how young they are and he hopes that they aren’t in a rush to get married. Billy Ray hopes the engagement will be very long, but he isn’t opposed to the marriage at all. Billy Ray got divorced from his first wife Cindy though and he just doesn’t want Miley to go through a similar heartbreak.

“Liam is part of the Cyrus family and he is very close with Miley’s mom, Tish. It’s a very special time for the family and it’s certainly not easy for Billy Ray to realize that his oldest daughter is getting married. In Billy Ray’s eyes she will always be his little girl.”
