Was it all Destiny?

Her parents seemed to know she would go on to greatness when they named her Destiny Hope. So why is she called Miley? Well as a baby she smiled a lot, so she was nicknamed Smiley, which soon turned into Miley and it just stuck!

Miley truly adores her parents

Miley says the person she adores most in the world is her mum Tish. Her favourite all time song is her dad’s hit Achy Breaky Heart and she has a tattoo that reads VIIXCI which is the date her parents  met in Roman numerals.
