Cyrus and Hemsworth are engaged

MILEY Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are engaged.

The 'Hunger Games' actor proposed to his girlfriend of three years on May 31 with a 3.5 carat diamond ring from jeweller Neil Lane.

Miley, 19, told People magazine: ''I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.''
The 'LOL' actress also tweeted today: ''life is beautiful.'

The couple met while working together on 'The Last Song' in 2009 and Liam, 22, has previously admitted while he wanted to be professional on the film, they couldn't help but fall in love after working so closely together.

He said: ''What happened happened, and we've been together since.

''She makes me really happy. When you start, you want to be professional, but when you're filming those scenes with someone and pretending to love them, you're not human if you don't feel something.''

In turn Miley has said that Liam is the perfect guy because he listens to her.

The singer-and-actress - who split from Liam in 2010 before rekindling their relationship last year - knows he is the right man for her because he's always there to lend a sympathetic ear instead of telling her what to do.

She said: ''I think it's someone that is always there to listen and I think that's when people make mistakes because they always want to have the answers and I don't like people trying to fix me, I just like them being able to listen.''
