Liam Hemsworth turned 29 yesterday, a feat his wife Miley Cyrus enthusiastically celebrated on Instagram with three tributes. The first was a video of the couple, another was a throwback photo of them 10 years ago, and the last was a very intimate, personal, and sweet love letter to Hemsworth. Cyrus and Hemsworth have kept their relationship largely private, but Cyrus’s public note to Hemsworth reveals some of the sweetest things about their “really regular life” together, as Cyrus put it to Howard Stern last month.
Here, Cyrus’s full letter to Hemsworth, recounting all the things she loves about him. Hemsworth of course liked the post:
L, HBD to my #1 … When we met, you were 19, Today you are 29…
I thought I could share some of my favorite things about my favorite dude in honor of this very special day. The way you look at me, the way you look at our dogs, our pigs, our horses, our cats, our fish. The way you look at your family … your friends … at strangers … at life. The way you look at the ocean and the way you always take your time. The way you go outside when I ask ‘what’s the weather like?’ instead of checking your phone …
The look on your face when you receive good news and how you look AT the bad news. I love how you always try things your way, but are never to[o] proud to ask for help. (Yes, I’ve noticed and taken note, I’m a work in progress). The way you paint, the colors you choose …
I love your dirty socks on the floor cause that means YOU’RE HOME.
I love when you introduce me to a new band, so when you’re away I can listen, and it feels like you’re here.
I love watching The Sandlot with you.
I love laying in bed late at night looking for new recipes, only going to sleep so we can wake up and make breakfast together having a hot cup of coffee (almost as hot as you are)
I love those little lines around your eyes when you laugh or look into the sun…
I love the way we speak in our own language. Sometimes with just a look.
I love laying on the couch eating Chinese when we’re hung over from the night before. I love going to a random party and remembering basically everyone is fake AF out here and how lucky I am to share a life with someone so REAL.
I love the way you always listen & the way that you care… (Even when it’s about RuPaul’s Drag Race.)
I love having a teeth brushin’ partner & when I’m lazy how you’ll comb my hair.
I even lose when you shrink my favorite t-shirt in the dryer — because having a boyfriend (oh em gee I almost forgot you’re my friggen husband now) that does laundry is pretty much the best thing ever.
I love taking turns and sharing with you.
I love taking long drives, sometimes going nowhere.
I love how you’ll sit and listen to me pluck out a new tune on the guitar for hours …
I love the way you mumble out loud when you read a new script or book.
I love how you learn and grow.
I love writing songs about you on the piano.
I love how you let ME be ME.
