​Liam Hemsworth Gets Emotional Revealing Miley Cyrus Has Taken His Name

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus tied the knot in a private, low-key wedding at the end of last year, much to our surprise.

The two had been on and off for the past decade after meeting on set of The Last Song in 2009, having first got engaged back in 2012. Despite ending that engagement the year after, the two remained close and eventually got back together and re-engaged.

Fast forward to today, and the couple are now officially Mr and Mrs Hemsworth - after Liam recently revealed wife Miley also took his name when they got married in December.

Appearing on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Liam was asked about their big day.

"I heard you got married - to one of my favourite people, Miley Cyrus," host Kelly Ripa said.

"Well, Miley Ray Hemsworth, actually," Liam replied.

"She'll still obviously be 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'."

Pretending to tear up, he added: "I was like 'That's awesome, thank you'."

The couple didn't announce their marriage on 23 December, a few clues started to get drip-fed through onto social media.

In pictures posted on Conrad Jack Carr's Instagram story, Miley could be seen wearing an off-the-shoulder white dress and Liam was sporting a tuxedo - although guests looked a lot more casual in jeans and hoodies, perhaps suggesting the day may have been as much of a surprise to them as it was for the rest of us.

In one of the shots the couple are also stood ready with a knife to cut into a pretty elaborate-looking cake - oh, and in the background there were huge 'Mr & Mrs' balloons, which were a bit of a giveaway.

Eventually, though, they confirmed the good news - with Miley posting a photo of her and her new husband embracing on Twitter.

Now the cat's out of the bag, they're both ready to talk to the world about married life, with Liam also telling Kelly and Ryan he now has Miley saved as 'Wife' in his phone, adding: "The first couple of weeks were really fun to be husband and wife."

He also explained more about their decision to keep the wedding a private, small affair - admitting they found the whole thing 'kind of embarrassing'.

Congrats, guys!
