Billy Ray Cyrus Is Just Happy That Daughter Miley Is Happy – & Engaged

19 10 2012

Billy Ray Cyrus has one thing to say when asked if he approves of daughter Miley’s fiancé: I do!

“Liam [Hemsworth]’s a great guy,” Billy Ray told ET Canada in an interview on Wednesday. “I like Liam a lot.”

The singer and the Aussie actor got engaged on May 31 after three years of dating, and Miley, 19, told PEOPLE at the time, “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.”

Happiness, as it turns out, runs in the family, says Billy Ray, who took great pleasure in his daughter’s news.

“The main thing for me is that both of them are happy,” he says. “Miley’s worked really hard, and I’m enjoying right now seeing her so happy.”

“She and I always had a mantra,” he continues, “and the mantra was: if you ain’t happy, it ain’t working.”

Says Cyrus: “As long as [Miley’s] happy right now, life is good!”

As for Hemsworth, 22, Billy Ray says he didn’t pop the question without consulting him first. “We talked about it a couple of times,” says Billy Ray of the proposal.

Cyrus isn’t short on advice when it comes to good parenting, either. He tells ET Canada, “[You need to] love your kids and be there for them – be there to support them and listen.”

Last night Miley made her guest appearance on Two and a Half Men. What did you guys think of the episode?! Tish blogged about it, saying:

So….. just finished watching the Two and a Half Men episode!  Even though I was on set day after day watching rehearsals and run thrus each day, I found myself laughing during this episode as if I had never seen it before!

In my wildest dreams I never thought that my daughter would have the chance to work with such amazing producers, directors and actors.  Seeing her work with people like Chuck Lorre, Ashton and John Cryer is such an incredible experience as a mom.  Im sitting in bed with my 2 dogs just beaming right now!  Yes, Im a complete DORK! A complete Dork who is SUPER PROUD of her daughter!
