It looks like Billy Ray Cyrus is engaged. On Oct. 18, the country singer alluded to his upcoming nuptials to girlfriend Firerose on Instagram, where the pair shared a joint selfie captioned, “Happy Autumn🧡.” While neither of the two shared the news explicitly, their photos posing against fall foliage drew attention to Firerose’s sparkling diamond engagement ring. Reps for Billy Ray did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
The Australian singer-songwriter first confirmed her relationship with Billy Ray on Instagram in August. “The world is a better place with you in it. Happy Birthday Billy❤️” she wrote alongside a photo of the two. They sparked rumors of an engagement just a month later when Firerose was spotted with a ring on that finger. “They grew close while working on music together,” a “Cyrus family source” told People in September. “It is what it is. He and Tish were over before he started dating her.”
News of Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus’s separation broke earlier this year, with Tish filing for divorce on April 6, citing “irreconcilable differences.” In a joint statement, the former couple said, “It is after 30 years, five amazing children and a lifetime of memories, we have decided to go our separate ways — not with sadness, but with love in our hearts. . . . We have not come to this decision lightly or quickly but with so much going on in the world, we wanted to provide some clarity and closure, so we can remain focused on what is important.” The couple, who had been married since 1993, previously split in 2010 and again in 2013, though they reconciled both of those times.
