Liam Hemsworth Had To Win Billy Ray’s Approval

Well before actor Liam Hemsworth proposed to Miley Cyrus, he had to wear down her dad Billy Ray to win his approval.

But it’s not because Billy Ray has a problem with Hemsworth; rather, he didn’t think the young couple–Hemsworth is 22, Cyrus just 19–was ready for something so huge as marriage, and was concerned about the pressures of their fame getting in the way. And although the two have been dating for three years, a source says Billy Ray is hoping their engagement will be a long one. The pair actually broke up briefly but reconnected, saying they did it to test their relationship.

“Billy Ray was just worried about Miley still being a teenager,” the source said. “On top of that, there’s the whole entertainment world thing, where so many young stars get married young, and then it falls apart fairly quickly.”

Hemsworth popped the question on May 31st and since then Miley has posted several tweets about how happy she is, which would make any father soft-hearted. And the very fact that Hemsworth, who is reportedly old-fashioned, wanted to make sure Billy Ray gave his blessing before he took the big step shows that he is serious in his intentions.

Twitter was all aflutter yesterday as news broke of the engagement and Hemsworth fans everywhere died a little inside.

    Liam Hemsworth is the luckiest man on the planet. Now the most desirable eligible young woman left is Jennette McCurdy. Does anyone even know if she has a boyfriend (or girlfriend)?

    I am hoping that it works for Miley. I like Hemsworth and he does appear old-fashioned by the way he thought to open the door for her. Most people don’t think that means anything, but it does. I hate for a man to drive up and honk his horn and you have to fend for yourself getting in the car. I felt like he knew what he wanted when he proposed to her and then to wait until he got her father’s approval. Somebody has been raised right and taught values. A three-year difference is not a long stretch and then you also have younger folks with wisdom and that cries loud. I was born with wisdom and I was more mature than my age. Miley is no pushover and Liam knows it and men tend to respect women like that. I saw the movie and I believe her personality in real life is about the same. I like the fact that they have similar interests … who would put up with five dogs if they didn’t love them, so I am truly happy for them. True love in this day and time is hard to find. God bless them.
