They have had their ups and downs. But singer Miley Cyrus and actor Liam Hemsworth are now back together and more in love than ever. The pair were spotted kissing at a New Year’s Eve party and there are now suggestions that they are planning to adopt a child this year.

According to a source close to the couple said that had been seriously discussing starting a family. They are understood to have both wanted children for some time now, but have been unsure whether they want to adopt or have their own kids biologically.

The friend said that they are now leading towards adoption following visits by the former Hannah Montana star to Haiti, where she was taking part in a project to help children with hearing difficulties. At the time, she said that she had felt drawn to helping others.

Miley is understood to feel overwhelmed at the need for adoptive parents. She also has a family history of adoption so she knows how it can work for both parents and children. Her mother Tish was adopted as a baby, and her father Billy Ray adopted Tish’s youngsters from a former relationship.

Healthy living

Liam is from a big family, and is used to having lots of children around. He has already spoken about having children, saying he is sure he will do so one day, and that it will feel right. The source said that Miley and Liam were both ready if she fell pregnant. She is understood to be leading a healthier lifestyle, just in case.

The couple first met while making The Last Song movie together eight years ago. They split up for a period of time, but got back together and are understood to be stronger than ever. There has even been speculation that the pair have secretly wed.
