ALSO, Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth’s families ‘thrilled’ over engagement:
“Billy Ray loves Liam. He’s happy his daughter has found the right guy,” one source says, adding that Hemsworth has spent a lot of time with her family, barbecuing together. “The whole family loves Liam.”
Cyrus’s mom Tish is also said to be “excited” by the news.
Likewise, Hemsworth’s family in Australia has gotten to know Cyrus through their visits, and is happy for them. “They spend Christmas and other holidays together. They’ve been down to Australia,” says a source.
The pop star, 19, and the actor, 22, got engaged May 31 following three years of dating, after meeting on the set of The Last Song.
Though their daughter is still a teenager, Billy Ray and Tish reportedly aren’t wistful or sad that she’s growing up. “She’s pretty independent already,” says a source. “They’re just so happy she’s found someone who makes her so happy.”
On Twitter, Billy Ray, 50, wrote: “All I ever hoped for as a Daddy was to see my kids reach their dreams. To find happiness … peace of mind … and someday know … true love.”

AND, E! News correspondent Ken Baker called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Thursday to set the record straight as to where Liam Hemsworth actually proposed to Miley Cyrus, puts pregnancy rumors to rest, and tells us what will happen before the couple will walk down the aisle.
When Will Liam & Miley Tie The Knot?
Ken tells us: “I just got off the phone with someone who knows Miley, who said that they are not even setting a wedding date. This is not going to happen very soon. In fact, she’s going to be coming out with her new studio album way before she gets married and her new album doesn’t even have a release date yet. So, this is something that is just a long term plan on the horizon.”
Where Did He Get Down On Bended Knee?
“All we know as far as the details of the actual proposal is that he did it in Los Angeles,” Ken tells us. “The reason I really want to point that out is because there was a rumor on the internet immediately that he took her back to Tennessee, her native Tennessee, and proposed to her. That would have been very romantic and original, but I’m sorry to tell you that it’s not true. He actually did it in Los Angeles, he surprised her. I’m told she wasn’t at all expecting it, but she immediately said yes.” Ken also put to rest another rumor that immediately began swirling, saying: ‘She is absolutely not pregnant!’”
