Liam Hemsworth has FINALLY spoken out about his first engagement to Miley Cyrus, and she couldn’t be happier. We’ve learned why Miley is so pumped that he defended their relationship — get the scoop here!

Liam Hemsworth, 26, and Miley Cyrus, 23, are happy as can be together, and Miles is beyond touched that Liam gushed about her in his interview with GQ Australia. HollywoodLife.com hears that this is a huge step for their still-healing relationship — find out why!

A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Miley absolutely loved Liam’s interview with GQ. “Miley’s happy that Liam has started talking about her a little bit more,” the insider says. “She’s so happy he stood up for her and their first engagement. It’s insulting that people think that was some sort of mistake — they’re together now, so obviously it wasn’t one.” You can say that again!

As you may recall, Liam spoke out about their original engagement with the Australian mag, explaining that at the time, the pair had grown apart. “Of course it was hard, man. But at the time we were 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,” he said. Most importantly, though, he and Miley are now in a great place, and he’s over the moon! “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,” he said about their engagement being back on.
