Billy Ray Cyrus has finally confirmed the rumor that he is engaged to his 34-year-old girlfriend, Australian singer-songwriter Firerose. She told People magazine that Billy Ray proposed back in August without a ring or getting down on one knee. He simply asked her, “Do you wanna marry me,'” she told the publication.
Firerose, born Johanna Rosie Hodges, designed her own five-carat engagement ring. According to Page Six, it could be worth as much as $220,000.
Billy Ray and his wife of 28 years, Tish Cyrus, recently finalized their divorce, according to the singer. He popped the question to Firerose four months after Tish filed for divorce.
Billy Ray and Firerose have together released a new single called “Time” which they co-wrote.
