Miley Cyrus Engaged to Liam Hemsworth & She May As Well Be My Kid (VIDEO)
By now all y'all know 19-year-old Miley Cyrus and 22-year-old Liam Hemsworth are a-gittin' hitched. So, that's hardly news anymore.
And at first, I was like, Oh well, whatevs. Another young starlet making another impulsive decision.
But then it occurred to me -- Miley Cyrus is 19.
My daughter is 11. Granted, there are 8 developmentally-packed years between the two, but still. If my daughter were to come to me in 8 years with a sparkly rock on her finger and a sparkly look in her eye to match, what would I say?
What would I do?
I feel like I probably wouldn't just smile and say, "Hey, that's pretty cool!"
Because, sweet niblets (oh yeah, I said it again!), that girl is just a child! Married?! Look, I get that Billy Ray Cyrus was going for the wholesome family values thing when he raised Miley (well, the wholesome billionaire pop star family values thing), but ... is all that chicken-fried childrearing really going to carry Miley and Liam through til death do them part?
Honestly, I hope so. Because they seem like a really sweet couple, and if Miley were my daughter, I'd want this to work out for her. I'd want her to have the incredibly rare fortune of finding her true love at an incredibly young age and spending the rest of her life with him.
And I wouldn't want my experienced, cynical side to create a rift between us.
So maybe I would just smile and say, "Hey, that's pretty cool!"
And hope for the best.
What would you do if your 19-year-old daughter got engaged?
