Country star Billy Ray Cyrus has confirmed that he is engaged to Australian singer Firerose.
Cyrus reportedly proposed to Firerose in August after his wife Tish, with whom he has five children, filed for divorce from him for the third time.
The “Hannah Montana” alum confirmed to People that the divorce has since been finalized, calling it a “long time coming” and telling the magazine that “everybody’s turning the page.”
He explained, “It’s been a lot, but everyone knew that it was time for a change.”
“Finding Firerose and getting engaged and then losing my mom [a few weeks later] – see? The teeter-totter will not stay in the middle,” Billy Ray said.
Firerose, who said she was a solid friend to Billy Ray during his divorce process, said that he confided in her a lot of what was going on in his life then. “I was just the best friend I could possibly be, supporting him,” she noted.
Firerose, told People earlier this week that Cyrus did not get down on one knee or present her with a ring.
“Billy looked at me and said, ‘Do you, do you wanna marry me?'” Firerose recalled. “And I was just like, ‘Of course I do. I love you.'”
“He said, ‘I love you. I wanna make this official. I wanna be with you forever,'” the Aussie, whose real name is Johanna Rosie Hodges, continued.
