Kelly Preston’s known Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth since the very beginning of their relationship, and she couldn’t be more thrilled about the young couple’s plans to say “I do.”
Preston played Cyrus’ mom in the The Last Song and told E! News she’s “so happy” for the duo, who met in 2009 on the set of the romantic movie. “Miley’s like a second daughter and there’s no one more perfect for her! I love Liam!”
Cyrus’ real-life mom, Tish, is also elated by her daughter’s happy news. “Wow! All of the LOVE pouring out for Miley and Liam is incredible!” she tweeted Wednesday. “So happy for my precious baby girl and the love of her life!
The former Hannah Montana star’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, also took to Twitter to express his excitement. All I ever hoped for as a Daddy was to see my kids reach their dreams.,” he wrote. “To find happiness…peace of mind …and someday know… true love.”
ALSO, Jada Pinkett Smith gives marriage advice to Miley: “There’s a Lot of Change Coming”
Jada Pinkett Smith has been married to Will Smith for nearly 15 years, so when it comes to relationship advice, she knows what she’s talking about! The actress, who is mom to child stars Jaden and Willow, was surprised to find out Miley Cyrus got engaged, but offered up some advice to the 19-year-old bride-to-be.
At the Mamarazzi Event, presented by Capri Sun Super V & The Moms in NYC last night, OK! asked Jada what advice she’d give to young couples like Miley and Liam Hemsworth, who are taking the plunge. To our surprise, Jada didn’t even know Miley was engaged!
“Miley is getting married? She’s engaged?” Jada said in disbelief, before offering up some words of wisdom.
“I would say learn how to be friends because, especially when you’re starting that young, there’s lots of change coming. Lots of change. Lots of transition, you know?” Jada explained. “Forever is a long time. And when you’re starting forever at 19 years old – it’s a long time!”
“And that’s not to say that that’s not something [or] that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just to know that what it is now and what it will be…it’s just going to continue to transform and change,” the Madagascar 3 star added. “So, you have to be with someone you consider a friend and you have to keep flexibility.”
Jada admitted she started dating Will at young age, so she made sure to touch on the fact that Miley has a long, but amazing road ahead of her.
“I got with Will when I was 23… so when I think about Miley and I’m like she’s engaged at 19? It’s a journey!” Jada said. “It’s a beautiful journey, but it’s a journey. Lots of challenges. [Will and I] are nothing like we were when we first met. We’re nothing like that!”
So how do Jada and Will keep the romance alive? Patience, love and celebrations!
“We celebrate throughout the year!” Jada joked when asked what she and Will will be doing for their 15th wedding anniversary.
“Usually on our wedding anniversary, we give ourselves a high-five and then, ‘Yeah, homie! Yes!’ You know?,” she laughed. “We usually use the whole year. I mean, there’s been many times throughout the whole year, we just look at each other and go, ‘Do you believe what we’ve been able to accomplish from where we’ve come from?’”
AND, Miley’s engagement: “Congratulations!” says pal Bret Michaels
Good news, Liam Hemsworth!
Miley Cyrus’ pal (and Poison frontman) Bret Michaels totally approves of the cute couple’s super-exciting engagement.
So what exactly is Michaels saying about the 19-year-old singer and the 22-year-old Hunger Games star’s recent big news? Read on…
“[Miley's] one of the coolest people,” Michaels told us at the Hollywood premiere of Rock of Ages. “She’s a very talented person and I shout out a mega congratulations to her.”
The 49-year-old rocker, who’s a longtime friend of the Cyrus family, shared a bonding experience he had with Hemsworth while he and Cyrus were recording her cover of “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” for her last album.
“I took him on an insane ride in the Bentley,” Michaels laughed. “I took him in the car and we whipped up and down the [Sunset] strip very fast…Liam and I took the car out and raced hell.”
He added, “You can tell Liam he rocks and he’s a good dude.”
Cyrus and Hemsworth announced their engagement just last week after dating on and off for three years.
Congrats, you two!
