CANBERRA, Australia – Fans gave mixed reactions to news that 22-year-old Liam Hemsworth finally popped the question to 19-year-old Miley Cyrus. Some think that it’s too soon and they’re too young; while others say that — if they are truly in love — they shouldn’t care about what others think and just go for it.

And go for it, they did. The couple is now officially engaged.

One spectator who says she is truly happy for the two is Laura Griffin, Hemsworth’s girlfriend in Australia before he left for the U.S. to film The Last Song with Cyrus in 2009. They broke up a few months into the movie’s filming, when Hemsworth started dating his co-star.

“Liam never cheated on me — that was what was portrayed in the media — but he had ended things with me when Miley and him began dating,” says Griffin to Celebuzz. She and Hemsworth had been together for 6 years.

Griffin admits to being surprised about the engagement, though, since Hemsworth and Cyrus were an on-again-off-again couple.
