Liam Hemsworth tears up as he reveals Miley Cyrus has taken his surname: 'I didn't ask her to'
Liam had not asked Miley to change her last name but when asked the popstar immediately said that she would go by his name, he was beyond thrilled.
Not everyone likes to take up their husband's name after marriage, but that isn't the case for the former Disney star, Miley Cyrus. After tying the knot in December 2018, looks like the 'Hannah Montana' star is all set to pick up with her new life as a married woman, and she began by changing her last name to her husband, Liam Hemsworth's name. The couple has been giving their fans couple-goals ever since they got together, almost a decade ago, on the sets of 'The Last Song'. Even their wedding could not be disrupted by the devastating wildfires which had destroyed their property in California.
Now, putting all of that firmly in the past, the couple seems to be making it pretty great together as a married pair. In his interview on the talk show, 'Live with Kelly and Ryan', the actor revealed that he was surprised Miley had changed her last name.
He said, "I think that was honestly one of the best things about it. I didn't ask her to take my name, but then she's like, 'No, of course, I'm taking your name. I'm like, 'That's awesome. That's really good.'" However, Hemsworth also stated that although after marriage she is a Hemsworth in her private life, she would continue with her name as 'Miley Cyrus', professionally. "She will still be obviously known as Miley Cyrus, but she took my name, which is great."
The 29-year-old actor also got pretty candid about accepting the fact that Miley is now his wife. He explained it was really exciting for both of them to get into the new habit of married life. Hemsworth said, "It's become a little more normal, but the first couple of weeks it was... I mean, it's only been a month and a half. But the first couple of weeks was really foreign to me, with 'wife' and 'husband.' I just have her in as 'Wife' on my phone now."
Hemsworth also explained why the couple chose such an intimate ceremony for their wedding, "We find the whole thing kind of embarrassing. We know how we feel about each other, but we just wanted to do something simple and organic and just with immediate family. But it was a really nice day. Really special.”

The Australian actor and the 26-year-old singer sparked their romance several years ago when they had both starred in the movie, 'The Last Song'. The couple made their first red carpet debut in 2010, as the posed for a very couple-like photo shoot for Teen Vogue.
However, their relationship went downhill in August only to see them reconcile in September. They confirmed their engagement two years later in 2012 when the 22-year-old Hemsworth proposed the 19-year-old teen pop sensation. He had proposed on May 31 with a 3.5 carat Neil Lane diamond ring, and Miley couldn't wait to look forward to a "life of happiness with Liam".
They once again faced a terrible time in their life when the couple's Malibu home was destroyed by the California wildfire. Miley praised Hemsworth's important role in helping them evacuate the place, as she said to Howard Stern, "He was so incredible. He got all the animals out in his truck. He put two pigs in crates, which I tell you is so hard. He got a lot of action for saving animals. We had to make sure he knew I was very, very grateful." Their wedding, which was an extremely intimate affair with close friends and family, took place in Franklin, Tennessee. Their romance saw several obstacles in between the years 2013-2015 but they ultimately made it to their happy ending.
