She's wearing his ring and moving in!
It's time to celebrate! On-again-off-again flames Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are reportedly back together — to the point where Miley is moving into his Malibu home, according to TMZ.
She was also recently seen wearing the engagement ring he once got her. For all appearances, it looks like the like the engagement is back ON after the couple called it off in 2013. The news is pretty shocking, but really also really exciting! How did these two reunite? Here are five ways we think their love never died:
1. They never stopped caring about each other.
Last year, Hemsworth told Men's Fitness that their feelings for each other didn't disappear after they broke up. "I mean, look — we were together five years. So I don’t think those feelings will ever change. And that’s good because that proves to me that it was real. It wasn’t just a fling. It really was an important part of my life and always will be." So perhaps we should have seen this coming!
2. They realized they didn't have to rush down the aisle.
Sometimes people feel pressured to get married before they're ready, and it seems that's what the young couple had been feeling. (Miley was just 20 when they ended their engagement!) "Just because Miley and Liam are back together, it doesn’t mean they will get married any time soon," a source told Hollywood Life. "After they broke up, they remained friends and both came to the realization that the pressure of getting married was what drove them apart in the end." Every relationship needs to just go at its own pace.
3. They let each other go.
We all have heard the saying. "If you love something, set it free. If it comes back then it's meant to be." The fact that Miley and Liam found their way back to each other after being apart for for more than two years, living separate lives, shows they're serious about having a relationship and making it work.
4. They focused on being best friends.
It sounds really cliché when couples claim to be best friends. But there's truth to it. This old adage is really put to the test after a breakup. Miley and Liam remained buddies even though they weren't romantically linked. According to Page Six, Hemsworth talked about how the two will "always be best friends" and have "an instantaneous connection."
5. They gave each other time to grow.
Sometimes breakups are good for growth. You have time to reflect on what's happened and learn more about what you need from a relationship. While broken up, these two dived into their careers and grew to know themselves better. (Miley even came out as bisexual.) After all that growing, they've found their way back to each other, which is a very good sign that this might be for good this time.
