By: / June 6, 2012

As the father-of-the-bride, Billy Ray Cyrus is preparing to walk his 19-year-old daughter Miley Cyrus down the aisle.

The 50-year-old “Achy Breaky Heart” singer, who has been married to Cryus’s mom Tish for 18 years, took to Twitter on Wednesday to gush over his little girl’s engagement to The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth.

He 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.”

In a brief statement, 22-year-old Hemsworth’s rep confirmed the news but would not elaborate further.

Cyrus also took to Twitter in the wake of the announcement, writing:

“Thank you for all the love today :) I’m happy to share this news with you all. I feel like all my dreams are coming true. ❤ have a great day.”

Hemsworth, who first met Cyrus on the set of their 2009 romantic movie Last Song, proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane.
