Miley Cyrus and her fiancé, actor Liam Hemsworth, shared photos from their Christmas morning celebration. Big deal, right? Actually, yes.

The couple and the images got everyone talking, since Cyrus appeared to be wearing a gold band on the ring finger of her left hand, suggesting that they had already gotten married and were revealing the huge news in coy fashion. In the photo below, Liam is also sporting a band on his left hand.

At one point, there were rumors floating around that Cyrus, wearing leopard print, footed PJs and Santa hats and beards in the photos, was planning not one, not two, but three weddings to Hemsworth. While she shot that story down, we would never believe that she'd get married in secret and not share the photos of the beautiful dress or the good news with the world. At the very least, she would post photos of her dogs as the rings bearers and flower girls at the ceremony, since she is cray cray about her canines.

Speculation ran rampant, though, given the bling in the photos. Perhaps Cyrus and Hemsworth were having a little fun at the expense of the media and of their fans.

Maybe they just like wearing gold rings before they actually swap vows. It's good preparation for when the big day finally arrives.
