If you haven't heard by now, get ready: Miley Cyrus is engaged to Liam Hemsworth. The 19-year-old star confirmed the engagement to the 22-year-old actor on Twitter and to People, stating: "I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam."

The couple met on the set of The Last Song in 2009 and have dated for three years. When the news broke, it instantly became the number one Twitter trending topic, according to Mashable. But it didn't take long before Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber fans chimed in.

"Selena Bieber" also made the top 10 list of trending topics, combining the two pop stars names. Selena Gomez, also 19, and Justin Bieber, 18, have been dating for a little over a year. Could nuptials be in their future? Justin Bieber squashed hopes of an early marriage by telling the French newspaper Le Parisien, "One day, I will get engaged, when I will have found the right person in five or ten years." He quickly added: "It doesn't mean that Selena is not the right person though, she is going to kill me if I say that!"

Guess we'll have to wait a few years to see. In the meantime, congrats to Miley and Liam -- check out that ring!

Tell us: Do you think Miley is too young to be engaged? Should she have waited, like Selena and Justin Bieber?
