It looks like the answer is yes, though Miley herself didn’t break the news. Husband Liam made the announcement inadvertently during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan. When asked how his first month being married to “Miley Cyrus” has been, Hemsworth was quick (but a gentleman) to correct the hosts, noting that Miley has, indeed, changed her name.
“Miley Ray Hemsworth now, actually,” he confirmed. “She will still be obviously known as Miley Cyrus, but she took my name, which is great. That was honestly one of the best things about it. I didn’t ask her to take my name, but she was like, ‘No, of course I’m taking your name.'” So, yes, it was indeed Miley’s idea.
Miley has still been credited as of late with her famous last name, like during her explosive Grammys performances, so we’re unsure if she’ll ever adopt Miley Ray Hemsworth as her professional name at some point. Still, this is an adorable gesture and one that makes our hearts flutter a bit.
Unfortunately, Liam wasn’t able to watch Miley’s displays of talent at the award show, as he spent Sunday in the hospital, according to Isn’t It Romantic costar Rebel Wilson. There weren’t any details on why he was down and out, but hopefully he’s feeling up to speed now.
And now that the whole last name situation is taken care of, Liam has to remember to actually call her his wife. It’s probably a little difficult to get used to after years of dating and then finally tying the knot, so we understand.
“I just have her in as ‘Wife’ in my phone now,” he shared. Genius! Here’s to many years of holy matrimony for the pair.
