It looks like Billy Ray Cyrus has popped the question.

According to The US Sun, the country star is "believed to be engaged" to fellow singer Firerose - just five months after splitting from his wife of 28 years, Tish Cyrus.

Billie, 61, and Tish, 55, share five children together - Brandi, 35, Trace, 33, Miley, 29, Braison, 28, and Noah, 22.

Despite having a long history with his ex-wife, Billie appears to have moved on fairly quickly. The 'Achy Breaky Heart' singer has been seen getting cozy with Australian artist Firerose ever since they worked together on the single 'New Day' last year.

The pair have made several appearances on each other's Instagrams, sharing photos and videos of themselves hanging out together. Now, it looks like their whirlwind romance has taken a more serious turn as Firerose was spotted with a huge diamond ring on her finger.

Billie's engagement to the singer is likely to widen the rift between himself and his pop-superstar daughter Miley.

The father-daughter duo - who appeared alongside each other on the hit Disney Channel show Hannah Montana - have reportedly fallen out in the wake of Billie's divorce, with The US Sun alleging that they unfollowed each other on Instagram following "a series of rows".

Despite tensions with his kids, a source told the outlet that Billie is happier than ever with his new partner.

"Billy is ­happier than he has been in a long time with ­Firerose," they said, adding: "There had been problems in his marriage for a while. He and Tish have been on and off for the best part of a decade, but things had been over for some time before the announcement in April."

The insider went on to say that - while Miley may have fallen out with her Dad - the rest of the Cyrus clan are more accepting.

"Not everyone sees his decision to move on so quickly in the same light though. There has been some tension with Miley, which is sad to see, but everyone is hopeful that they will be able to get over it soon enough. Thankfully his other kids do not ­have an issue with him and he has just collaborated with his youngest, Noah, on a song," they said.
