Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have announced their engagement. "I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam," Cyrus, 19, told People, confirming that the couple's engagement took place on May 31.

Engagement rumors have been swirling around Cyrus and Hemsworth since 2011 after she was spotted wearing what appeared to be a diamond ring on her left ring finger, but official news has not been confirmed until today.

Cyrus and Hemsworth, 22, met in 2009 when they both starred in The Last Song, based on a Nicholas Sparks novel. They have been dating ever since. The Australian Liam, who recently starred in The Hunger Games, is the younger brother of actor Chris Hemsworth, best known for playing Thor in The Avengers.
