- “She will still be obviously known as Miley Cyrus, but she took my name, which is great,” he said. “I think 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.'”
Liam, who stars in the upcoming movie “Isn’t It Romantic” appeared on “Live With Kelly and Ryan” on Friday, and discussed his relationship with the singer. He corrected host Kelly Ripa after she referred to his wife as Miley Cyrus.
“Miley Ray Hemsworth now, actually,” Liam sad. “She will still be obviously known as Miley Cyrus, but she took my name, which is great. I think 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.'”
He went on to say that he’s gotten more used to calling Miley his wife, but the first couple of weeks were a “fun” change. He also changed her name to “wife” on his phone.
