Tish Cyrus, the mother of Miley and Noah Cyrus, has found love once more. Cyrus was married to country star Billy Ray Cyrus before she got engaged to British-Australian actor Dominic Purcell on Instagram Saturday. Purcell is best known for his parts in “Prison Break,” “Equilibrium,” and “Assault on Wall Street.”
In the post, Cyrus showed two pictures of the couple after they got engaged. The first one shows a close-up of Cyrus’ square-cut engagement ring, and the second one shows Cyrus and Purcell in a loving hug.
“A thousand times…. YES,” Cyrus wrote.
A few days before they said they were getting engaged, Purcell posted a picture of the two of them on Instagram and thanked Cyrus in a sweet way.
Purcell wrote in the post’s description, “Punching way above my weight – yep absolutely, I’m a lucky bastard,” “She’s the best human ever. Love ya love.”

When they get married, it will be Cyrus’s third marriage. From 1986 to 1989, Cyrus was married to a man named Baxter Neal Helson. In 1993, four years after she met Billy Ray Cyrus, Cyrus married him.
Cyrus and Billy Ray have five kids: Brandi, who is 35, Trace, who is 34, Miley, who is 30, Braison, who is 28, and Noah, who is 23. Brandi and Trace are Cyrus’s children from her marriage to Helson. Billy Ray took them in as his own.
According to court papers obtained by USA TODAY, Cyrus filed for div0rce from Billy Ray in April 2022, saying that they couldn’t get along. The complaint for div0rce also said that the pair hadn’t lived together for more than two years. Before they broke up, Billy Ray and Cyrus both tried to get div0rced. Billy Ray filed for div0rce in 2010, and Cyrus did the same in 2013.

In a statement to USA TODAY, shared by Billy Ray’s agent Scott Adkins, the couple said, “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 grown up together, raised a family we can be so proud of, and it is now time to create our own paths,” the couple added. “We will always be family and look forward to a continued and loving shared experience as friends and parents. 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.”
