Wide set panic swept across the Internet on July 12 after Miley Cyrus began an Instagram purge. By the following day, her entire account had been wiped clean… including all of the photos of her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth. Gasp! 

Speculation that Miley and the Aussie actor had called it quits burned across social media for days. Then, on July 19, Liam posted a funny video of the pair together and their message was pretty darn clear: We’re still together, world. Not only are Miley and Liam still together, but Life & Style has learned that the couple is ready to have a baby!

“They’re closer than ever. She’s just keeping a low profile — and friends think it’s because she’s in the early stages of pregnancy,” a source explained of the singer’s disappearing act. “Everyone’s buzzing about it. Liam’s been desperate to start a family with Miley for years, and now it looks like it’s finally happening!”

The girl who couldn’t be tamed has changed her stripes of late and it all seems to be in an effort to start a family. Last year, longtime marijuana user Miley, 25, revealed she’d stopped smoking pot. Additionally, she hasn’t been dyeing her hair and the last time the former wild child and Liam, 28, were spotted together in public — at the Nashville airport on July 18 — a small bump appeared to be poking out from beneath her baggy tee! 

All the signs are there, said those close to the star. “She’s avoiding alcohol, craving Popsicles and ice, and feeling nauseous,” revealed the source. “Liam can’t stop affectionately touching her belly, either. It’s a dream come true for him.”

Next year will mark a whopping 10 years since Miley and Liam fell for one another on the set of The Last Song. Though they split for two years before reuniting in 2016, both have said time apart made them stronger. “People that break up and get back together — I think that’s awesome because you know it’s true, but also you get time to be yourself,” Miley explained on SiriusXM’s Hits 1 in Hollywood in 2017. “You get time to grow up.” 

Miley has done her growing up and with 12 years in the Hollywood spotlight already under her glittery belt, it’s not surprising that The Voice coach is feeling ready to settle down now. “A few years ago, Miley wasn’t ready to have a baby,” said the source, “but as time has gone by, she’s gotten on the same page as Liam and can’t wait to become a mom. They’ve both been excitedly looking at baby clothes!”
