'We Are Very, Very Happy': Miley Cyrus And Cody Simpson Officially In A Relationship

They've shared plenty of sentimental updates on Instagram, but now Cody Simpson has officially confirmed that he and Miley Cyrus are in a relationship.

“I’m very happy. We are very, very happy,” Cody told reporters at an event in Los Angeles, according to People.

The pair were first spotted together at a cafe in LA on October 3, following Miley's split from Kaitlynn Carter, and separation from Liam Hemsworth.

Cody explained that, because of their long-time friendship, coupling up with Miley didn't feel like too much of a whirlwind.

“The reason why it hasn’t been a really crazy sudden thing is just because we’ve been friends for so long,” he said.

“Any girlfriends I’ve had in the past has always been immediate romance and so it’s a different experience having been friends with somebody before and it developing naturally into something more.”

Cody added they had “found each other again in a space where we’re both not partying, working real hard, and it just keeps things healthy and it’s good.”

“She’s creative. She’s very passionate about what she does, and I’m very similar in that sense. That’s why we get along so well," he said.

Miley was hospitalised with tonsillitis last week and explained to her followers on Instagram that Cody had arrived "with roses and a guitar in hand", playing a tune he'd composed just for her.

“I wrote her a song this week that she’s pretty much forcing me to put out,” Cody told People.

“She was like, ‘If you don’t put this s**t out, I’m putting it out on your behalf for you. I’m getting your Spotify login and doing this s**t myself.’”

There has been speculation that Cody is behind the Robot costume on 'The Masked Singer Australia' so if Miley could hack into his Spotify account and release the tune, we might be able to compare those vocals -- because the suspense is killing us.
