Famed country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and Australian singer-songwriter Firerose confirmed their engagement. This comes after the latter sparked rumours of possible engagement after she posted an instagram post embracing the Achy Breaky Heart singer, with a diamond ring visible in her hand.
Rumours about their romance erupted earlier in August when Firerose posted on Cyrus’ birthday, captioning “The world is a better place with you in it. Happy Birthday Billy.”
Cyrus divorced with his wife of almost 30 years, Tish Cyrus in April, citing ‘irreconcilable differences.’ “We have grown up together, raised a family we can be so proud of, and it is now time to create our own paths,” the former couple told PEOPLE in a joint statement.

He’s just really believed in me and continued to tell me to pursue my dreams no matter what and not give up,” said Firerose.
