Miley Cyrus Took Liam Hemsworth's Last Name, and Even He's Surprised
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth quietly tied the knot at a private ceremony back in December. And even though things are already official, Hemsworth has revealed that Cyrus took his last name, surprising everyone—including him.
Hemsworth stopped by Live With Kelly and Ryan this week and received a quick congrats on married life. When Kelly Ripa started to ask about Cyrus, he adorably cut in and corrected her name, saying it's "Miley Ray Hemsworth now, actually." Immediately, the hosts leaned in for more answers and asked if the star had changed her name.
"She’ll still be obviously known as Miley Cyrus, but she did," Hemsworth confirmed. "She took my name, which was great. I think that was honestly one of the best things about it. I didn’t ask her to take my name, and then she’s like, ‘No, of course I’ll take your name.’ And I’m like, ‘That’s awesome. That’s really good. Thank you.’"
Hemsworth shared that it's become more normal to refer to Cyrus as his wife, saying that "it’s only been a month and a half or something, but the first couple of weeks was really fun to be wife and husband." He also revealed that he has her in his phone as "Wife."
That energy seems to be carrying over into public appearances as well. When Hemsworth received an award at the G'Day USA Gala last month, he was quick to call out his "beautiful wife" in his speech. Miley's reaction, of course, was priceless.
On Live With Kelly and Ryan, Hemsworth also provided a few details about how they approached their intimate wedding in Nashville. The couple, who has been together on-and-off for about 10 years, made sure the celebration felt sweet and straightforward.
"We never wanted to do anything too extravagant or big… 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, just basically with immediate family. But it was a really nice day," he said.
Since the big day, the newlyweds have piled on the PDA. On Hemsworth's birthday, Cyrus wrote him a heartfelt public letter, and the two shared pictures of a lovely snowy vacation they took just after they tied the knot.
For now, the two are happy to keep things just the way they are—Cyrus recently clapped back on pregnancy rumors and cheerfully let everyone they're simply excited for their new chapter together.
