"Wrecking Ball" singer Miley Cyrus is always keeping her fans on the edge of their seats. As rumors swirl that she is pregnant with fiancé Liam Hemsworth’s baby, the former Disney star got a cryptic tattoo.
She didn’t share the image with her 46.6 million Instagram followers, though. It was her tattoo artist, Dr. Woo, who posted the photo. "@mileycyrus don't play when it comes to #vegemite #halfneedle," he wrote Sunday. The black-and-white picture garnered more than 25,000 likes.
The tattoo is a small jar of Vegemite and is placed on the back of her upper arm. It’s assumed the new ink is an ode to her Australian fiancé. For those who don't know, a Vegemite sandwich is essentially the Austrailian version peanut butter and jelly. It’s made of leftover brewers' yeast extract and various vegetables and spices.
Not surprisingly, Hemsworth loves the snack. During a 2010 interview, the "Hunger Games" star talked about his favorite foods, saying they were "meat pies and Vegemite" He added: "They don't really have meat pies in the states; they have hot chicken pies, not meat pies," he told Australia’s Sunday Style, continuing to gush about Vegemite. "Vegemite, definitely, I had four bits of Vegemite toast this morning!"
Though it seems unlikely Cyrus would get a tattoo while pregnant, speculation about her expecting a child is seemingly endless. "Miley began telling her closest friends about two months ago that she’s pregnant," OK! magazine reported Wednesday. The singer gave herself away with excessive baby shopping. "Miley’s blowing a small fortune at Babies ‘R’ Us," the magazine reported.
Cyrus, 23, and Hemsworth, 26, reconciled at the end of 2015 after breaking up in 2012. They celebrated the New Year in Australia and reportedly plan to get married Down Under.
