Miley Cyrus has been in the public eye for so long we almost forget what it’s like to NOT have her around. But it is easy to forget that her connection to the entertainment industry didn’t start with Hannah Montana, and that the world has basically been watching her grow up, like, since she was born.

Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, shot to stardom with his 1992 single “Achey Breaky Heart”, and since Miley was born later that year, it’s safe to say that her relationship with the entertainment industry is a long one. Although she sometimes gets a lot of flack for the way she chooses to live her life, you’ve got to give her props for remaining sane through it all.

Early today, Miley shared this adorable #tbt that reminds us just how long Miley’s been in/near the spotlight, and highlights the close relationship she has with her father.

Um, is baby Miley the cutest or is she the cutest? We’re super digging her little fountain ponytail and white dress (always so stylish, even when she was like two inches tall), but we’ve also got to take a minute to talk about Billy Ray’s look.


How slick does he look in all black with that mullet? Seriously, this is GOLD. We’re pretty glad Miley is who she is, not only because it’s been cool to watch her grow and evolve alongside us, but because we get these STELLAR #tbts.

We’re sure Billy Ray isn’t as amused — most of our relatives would probably kill us if we shared their photos from the ’90s with 52.5 million followers, but we’re pretty sure their relationship is strong enough to handle it.
