Just four months after he and Tish Cyrus ended their marriage, Billy Ray Cyrus, who is now 61 years old, confirmed that he is engaged to the Australian singer Firerose, who is believed to be in her mid-30s. In addition, there is much speculation regarding her age.
After almost 30 years of marriage, Billy and Tish officially filed for divorce in April 2022, but it was revealed that they had been living separate and apart for over two years prior to the filing. Billy insisted that there were no ill wills on either side and stated that “everyone knew that relationship was over a long time ago.”
Since then, the singer of Achy Breaky Heart has moved on and is now in a relationship with Firerose, who is much younger than she is. When Firerose posted a dedication on Instagram to the singer in August of this year, it brought attention to their relationship, which was already making headlines.
How old is Firerose exactly?
The exact date of Firerose’s birth does not appear to have been officially confirmed, which has led to a lot of speculation regarding her age. Publications such as The Independent and DailyMail have reported as fact that she is 34 years old, which is consistent with the general consensus regarding her age. If this is the case, then she is only a few years older than Miley Cyrus, her fiance’s famous daughter, who is currently 29.
Other publications, on the other hand, are of the opinion that she is significantly younger than Miley Cyrus, with rumors suggesting that the singer is somewhere in the middle of her 20s.
Although her age has not been verified, it can be safely assumed that she is a great deal younger than her well-known fiance. But the clear age gap does not seem to concern the legendary musician, who explored his relationship in an interview with People magazine.
Cyrus said that his relationship with Firerose helped him come to terms with the death of his mother, who he lost earlier this year. He shared this information on his new single with Firerose, which is titled “Time.” He stated, “But having somebody to ride it out with now — that’s giving me a little more balance.” (But having somebody to ride it out with now.)
The engagement between Billy Ray Cyrus and Firerose
They disclosed their engagement to People magazine and said that the ceremony took place in August in the state of Tennessee. Cyrus proposed in a manner that was not at all conventional by not getting down on one knee or giving her a ring. “Billy looked at me and asked, ‘Do you, do you want to marry me?'” Firerose recalled Billy’s words to her. And I was like, ‘Well, of course I do,’ she said. I love you.” In later years, Firerose designed her own ring and chose a diamond to set in it.
Cyrus further disclosed that the two had first met many years ago on the set of Hannah Montana after Firerose had tried out for the role. Since that time, the two had developed a close friendship that, according to Firerose, had progressed during lockdown when the two began working together on songwriting.
She explained, “Billy opened up to me about a lot of the things that were going on in his life… To put it simply, I was the very best friend that I could possibly be.
