Liam Hemsworth’s Relative Reveals Why He Proposed To Miley Cyrus

Dylan Howard / June 7, 2012

Liam Hemsworth, 22, proposed to Miley Cyrus, 19, because he hopes it will forge a union as solid as that of his parents, one of his relatives has revealed.

“They have a fantastic relationship and he idolizes them (his parents),” the relative, who did not want to be named, said in a new interview.

“The thing Liam and Miley have in common is that both have very strong parental role models. They are madly in love, why wouldn’t they want to get engaged and move in together?”

The Hunger Games star’s Australia-based parents Leone, a teacher, and Craig, a childcare protection counselor, have reportedly jetted to the United States to celebrate the shock news of the pair’s engagement which was sealed with a 3.5 carat diamond ring.

Hemsworth’s parents were introduced to Cyrus in January 2010 during a brief stay at their beach side home outside of Melbourne.
