Tish Cyrus, Miley Cyrus’ mother, has taken to Instagram to announce that she’s engaged to Dominic Purcell – the Australian actor best known for his role in Prison Break.

Along with a photo showing off her engagement ring and a sweet photo of herself and Dominic, Tish wrote:

“A thousand times…. YES ❤️ @dominicpurcell.”

The couple were first linked to one another in July 2022, when Tish left a few red heart emojis on one of Dominic’s Instagram posts. They went public with their relationship in November 2022.

Dominic began his acting career by starring in a few Home & Away episodes in 1991. He then went on to star in Prison Break, obviously, as well as Heartbreak High, Blade: Trinity and most recently, the Bruce Willis film, Assassin.

Tish is a film producer and manager; she currently manages her daughters Miley and Noah Cyrus.

It looks like the Cyrus family has a ‘thing’ for Australians as Tish is not the first Cyrus to get involved with an Aussie.

Billy Ray Cyrus – Tish’s ex-husband – is currently engaged to Australian singer Firerose. The couple announced their engagement in November 2022; seven months after Tish filed for divorce from Billy Ray.

Firerose’s biggest hit is New Day, a collaboration with Billy Ray that was released in 2021.

It’s not just Tish and Billy Ray who have dated Australians though; Miley -Tish and Billy Ray’s daughter – was infamously in an on-again-off-again relationship with Australian actor Liam Hemsworth.

The two were even married from December 2018 to August 2019. Miley’s tumultuous relationship with Liam inspired two hit-songs; Wrecking Ball in 2013 and Flowers ten years later in 2023.

Miley also briefly dated Australian singer/swimmer Cody Simpson from October 2019 to August 2020.
