Then in September, Dominic’s 19-year-old daughter Lily-Rose posted a selfie with Tish during a weekend in Canada, which was retweeted by a fan.

The actor also shares Lily-Rose’s twin Augustus, Joseph, 23, and Audrey, 21, with ex-wife Rebecca Williamson. 

Tish Cyrus and Dominic Purcell shared this flirty exchange on Instagram in August.

Like Tish, Billy Ray has also moved on from their 28-year marriage. The country music star, 61, is engaged to Aussie singer Firerose after he reportedly proposed in August. But the pair have been friends for years.

“We actually met 10 years ago on the set of Hannah Montana,” Firerose said in a previous interview, referring to Billy Ray and Miley’s children’s sitcom. “Billy Ray’s been a phenomenal supporter of my music ever since.”

“He’s just really believed in me and continued to tell me to pursue my dreams no matter what and not give up. The music industry is not easy, but he’s been just a really, really incredible support.” 

Billy Ray Cyrus and Aussie singer Firerose seemingly confirm engagement.

Billy ay and Tish were married in 1993 and share five children – daughters Miley, 29, Noah, 22, and Brandi, 34, and sons Trace, 33, and Braison, 27.

They’ve split up twice during their union, but in June this year, Tish officially filed for divorce.

“It is 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,” the couple wrote in a joint statement released to People magazine at the time.

“We have grown up together, raised a family we can be so proud of, and it is now time to create our own paths.”
