Miley Cyrus 'calls off wedding' with Liam Hemsworth because she's not ready for children
Miley Cyrus says she isn't ready for marriage and parenthood at this point in her life while Chris Hemsworth is keen on starting a family
After Halsey and G-Eazy, the breakup troupe has now hit another one of our favorite celebrity couples: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. According to reports circulating in the media, Cyrus pulled the plug on their marriage over her decision of not wanting to start a family at this point in her life.
The 25-year-old pop star and her 28-year-old beau are currently, as per reports by the Daily Mail, not on the same page about when to have children. Cyrus' decision apparently stemmed from the thought that she wasn’t ready for marriage and parenthood in her life yet.
“He wants kids and doesn't want to keep putting it off but it's not quite the timeline Miley had in mind... He is left heartbroken,” a source told the publication. “Miley put off plans for the wedding and Liam was growing tired of it... They haven't been getting along in recent months.”
The high profile couple made their engagement public back in 2012 for the first time after meeting each other on the sets of a movie. They confirmed that they were dating in the year 2010 when they made their red carpet debut at an Oscars event but ended up splitting in 2013. In December later that year, Miley opened up about what post-Liam life was like.
"This is the best time of my life. I'm not going to look back on it and be like, 'I wish I hadn't been dwelling over a breakup,' you know? Because that's not what God wants my life to be about right now," Miley revealed.
However, they rekindled their romance two years later in 2015 and announced that they're engaged once again. On an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Miley revealed, "It's very weird because this is, like, real jewelry, and most of my jewelry is made out of gummy bears and cotton candy. They don't look that good together because they kind of mix up."
Miley also went on to add, "Sometimes I replace it with an actual unicorn or a Looney Tune, and he's kind of like, 'What's going on?' And I'm like, 'This isn't really my aesthetic, but I'll wear it because you love me.'" Miley said that her wedding "has to be perfect" and "has to be like a soundtrack in a movie".
As per reports, the 'Wrecking Ball' singer never really wanted a life with marriage and kids on the card, but she was only going along for Hemsworth's sake since he was the one who was quite keen to settle down.
“[She] didn't really want to get married. It's something that everyone else seemed to get but Liam,” said the insider. “[His] family had been begging him to see the light for a long time, but he had faith in Miley. Now he feels like an idiot.” At the time when the couple announced their engagement, Miley spoke to People and shared, "I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam."
However, it was only last year when the 'Can't Be Tamed' crooner said in an interview that marriage wasn’t a priority for her and, in fact, she felt like she had more “living” to do. “I don't envision marriage. I'm 24. I hope I get to live a little bit more. I have too much living to do [before I get married],” she told The Sun.
"Three years ago, if you’d asked me if I’d be here, this happy with this man, I’d have been stunned. I’m just riding this out. In some relationships, you lose yourself by being with someone else. Actually, it made me find myself more. I have no idea what the next three years will bring, but if it’s possible to get even happier, I’ll take it," Miley added.
During the same interview, Miley revealed that she and Liam did maintain a private friendship even while they were apart. "I didn’t know [we’d get back together]. I’m so crazy I have no idea. But I had something in my heart, it never felt like it was really over. We kept a great friendship really private. It’s good for people to have that space to grow individually. Otherwise, when you’re with someone from 16 until 24, you grow into the same person," she continued.
The devastating news of the couple putting an end to their marriage plans comes only a few weeks after it was reported that the duo had secretly tied the knot in a private ceremony in Malibu.
"They’ve actually done the deed for real this time! Miley and Liam recently had a secret wedding at her Malibu mansion. Neighbors had no clue it was a wedding. Kids were running around everywhere. It was a hippie-style wedding," the insider said. This definitely sounds like the kind of wedding that Miley would want.
When it came to their vows, the source added, "They expressed their love, how they’re each other’s best friend and want to grow old together. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house." The insider also revealed that, instead of inviting someone to perform at their wedding, Miley decided to do the honors herself.
