Billy Ray Cyrus made an appearance on the Today show to promote his show Still The King, but he made an even bigger splash when he talked about daughter Miley Cyrus’ wedding plans with her fiancé Liam Hemsworth. The couple is back together and planning their wedding, but Billy Ray may have leaked a detail that means it’s happening way sooner than we thought.
The couple has been very tight-lipped about any wedding plans. They rarely talk about any of it, so most of us were in the dark about when the ceremony may happen. But it sounds like the date is getting closer. While on the talk show, Billy Ray said of his daughter and Hemsworth, “They’re really happy together right now.” Then he went on to joke, “They know if they need a preacher, they’ve found one.”
He may be joking, but it is a possibility. It turns out that being a preacher runs in the Cyrus family. Billy Ray’s grandfather was a preacher. But I guess the family trade switched pretty quickly in a different direction with Billy Ray and Miley.
The only other news that has been reported about Miley and Hemsworth’s wedding is that the couple was planning on exchanging vows in Hemsworth’s hometown, meaning all of Miley’s family would have to head to Australia to watch the two get married.
It’s really a smart move for the young couple. If they were to get married in Los Angeles or even Nashville, where Miley is from, they are bound to be harassed by photographers and paparazzi just hoping to get a shot of the big day. In Australia, they’re more likely to be able to celebrate the special day without all of the outside craziness, which is probably very attractive to the couple who cite the strain of the public eye as one of the many reasons for their constant on-again, off-again status. Hemsworth is famously much more reserved than Miley and doesn’t seek out the limelight at all really.
That is, if you don’t count the fact that he’s incredibly handsome and makes everyone want to stare at him.
The fact that the wedding may be happening soon makes a lot of sense. Miley and Hemswroth took a substantial break from each other, but now that they’re back together and know exactly what they want, they really have no reason to wait to get married. Let’s just hope they don’t take Billy Ray up on his offer to officiate (or sing at the reception for that matter).
