Stripper poles and side boob shots aside, we’ll never be able to stop thinking of Miley Cyrus as Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana, so imagine our surprise when the 19-year-old officially announced her engagement to actor Liam Hemsworth today.
The singer and actress has definitely moved away from her blond-wig-wearing days, but since she grew up in front of our eyes, it’s hard to forget that she once had “the best of both worlds,” a brother named Jackson, and a dad with a scary soul patch (well, she still has that).
Unfortunately for Miley, she has a curse we’ll call “The Bieber”, in which many still view her as a tween sensation. Former Disney Channel star Hilary Duff found herself in a similar situation when she got married less than two years ago at the age of 21. Hilary gave birth to her first child this March at 24.
Though Miley and hunky Hunger Games star Liam have yet to set a wedding date, chances are that though Liam is 22, Miley could still be underage at her own wedding, and thus unable to legally toast her marriage!
Interestingly enough, Liam’s older brother Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) was quoted in April saying he “[couldn’t] see” Miley and Liam getting engaged because of their age — we guess he’s sticking his foot in his mouth right about now!
Miley and Liam started dating in June 2009 after meeting on the set of The Last Song, and apart from a brief breakup in 2010, they have been together since. But does Liam’s bro have a point? Are these two lovebirds too young to tie the knot? Vote below!
