We’re starting to think that Miley Cyrus really does have a thing for Liam Hemsworth.
We know, we know:
The singer and the actor have actually been together forever.
They got engaged, they called off their wedding in 2013, but they reunited over a year ago and have been a happy couple ever since.
But they’ve also been a pretty quiet couple, keeping their feelings mostly to themselves over the course of their very long-term romance.
Until recently, that is.
In late October, Miley appeared as a guest on Ellen, acknowledging that she’s engaged and even talking about the diamond Hemsworth had gotten for her.
Fast forward a couple months and Cyrus and Hemsworth didn’t merely spend Christmas together.
They wore ugly holiday sweaters together! And gave social media followers a glimpse inside their fun relationship!
“Happy birthday Jesus,” Liam captured the following adorable photo of the famous twosome.
We love it!
Today, meanwhile, does not mark the anniversary of the birth of our lord and savior.
But it sort of marks the next best thing:
The anniversary of the birth of Liam himself! He turns 27 years old today.
And Miley has once again gone public with her affection in a sweet birthday tribute to The Hunger Games star, sharing the first photo posted above on her Instagram account.
“Happiest birthday EVER to my favorite being EVER EVER EVER!” she wrote with enthusiasm as a caption, adding for emphasis:
“You have been my best friend since the day we met….. I am beyond lucky to share sooooo animals with you!!! I love you @liamhemsworth.”
What? We’re not crying. YOU’RE the ones who are crying!
Miley and Liam met way back in 2010 on the set of The Last Song; they got engaged two years later.
As previously mentioned, they broke up for a period in 2013, but reconciled in 2015 and have been together ever since.
Instead of flaunting their romance in everyone’s face, however, they just hang out at home (in silly outfits on occasion) and enjoy each other’s company.
They did, however, visit a children’s hospital over the holidays, capturing the sweet gesture with a couple of photos Cyrus released online.
Back in May, Hemsworth opened up about the stars giving their relationship a second change during an interview with GQ Australia.
“Of course it was hard, man,” he said of that initial split.
“But we were both going in different directions and it’s just what needed to happen. We were both super young and it was a good decision at the time – we both needed that.
“I guess when I feel something, then I just feel it and I go for it. I make my decisions about what’s going to make me happy, what I think is right and what I want to do – and I don’t worry too much outside of that.”
And now here they are, proof that two people can grow together, grow apart and then come back together.
There’s hope for us all!
Oh, and… happy birthday, Liam!
