When Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth first announced their engagement in 2012, we had a lot of feelings. “They’re young,” fans said, “Maybe it’ll work out!” Even after dozens of cute moments between Miley and Liam on and off the red carpet, they called it quits — but it seemed like they remained friends. It seems nothing short of miraculous that the two found a way to reconcile! Now that Miley and Liam are (hopefully) together forever, let’s celebrate some of their cutest moments as a couple.
1 Any time Miley and Liam wear matching holiday outfits.
Look, let’s be real: They are different shapes and sizes, and have vastly different energies as people. So whenever they coordinate their outfits, be it for Christmas or New Years’ or just YOLO’ing through life, we are here for it. Miley’s colorful style and bubbly energy is totally infectious, and I love that Liam is all about it. Also they have matching tattoos. Of Vegemite. In case you had any doubt of how Australian Liam is.
To appreciate Miley Cyrus is to appreciate her love of animals. All animals, large and small. For example, the potbellied pig that lives in the house with her. When Jimmy Fallon once asked if she assumed she was adopting a miniature pig, Cyrus was baffled by the question — after all, she said, she’s from the South, and she knew what she was getting. This is all a very long way of explaining that Liam is frequently spotted out and about walking dogs and it is so precious. Most of them are/were Miley’s from outside of their relationship, so his embracing of them makes you want to hug everyone in the near vicinity.
Their birthday gifts for each other.
What do you get the actor or pop icon that literally has it all? Lots of thoughtful and loving presents that can be thoroughly documented on social media for maximum appreciation-slash-enjoyment.
4 Literally every time Liam pranked Miley — sorry, but it’s true!
If you follow either one of them on social media, you’ll know that Liam is fond of pranking his beloved. In fact, he loves a quality prank as much as Miley hates one. He’s known to scare her when she’s walking around corners, sneak up when she’s not expecting it, and casually interfere with her video updates. I know it maybe doesn’t sound adorable when it’s all listed like that, but trust me on this. He loves to rile her up, but she wouldn’t share it if she didn’t find some joy in it.
5 When Liam called Miley his “angel,” and, sigh.
HIS. ANGEL. Catch me, I’m swooning. It helps that he looks charming AF in the photo the “Angel” caption belongs with, and she looks super goofy. You know how real their love is. You just know it!
6. That time their date night was an Elton John concert in Las Vegas.
The actor also attended his fiancée’s sister’s concert recently, which is just precious. We stan families that support families!
7 Liam and Miley hitting the red carpet and absolutely nailing it.
They don’t do it as much as they used to, but whenever Miley and Liam make a red carpet appearance together, you know it’s going to be perfect. She tends to tone down her eccentric personal style for Liam’s events, which is beyond precious; she obviously doesn’t want to take away from his big night. They also tend to coordinate their formalwear, which is the *chef’s kiss* of celebrity couple outings.
Here’s to many, many more years of adorable moments between Miley and Liam. But maybe cool it on the pranks, dude! We need to protect Miley’s singing voice at all costs.
