Miley Cyrus has sparked rumours she has married Liam Hemsworth.
Speculation is mounting that the couple - who got engaged last summer - tied the knot in recent days after they posted festive photographs of themselves on Instagram in which they are both wearing what appear to be wedding bands.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, the 22-year-old 'The Hunger Games' star is seen posing in the picture with a ring on his left ring finger that "looks suspiciously like a wedding band".
Miley, 20, later posted a photo in which she also appears to be wearing two gold rings on her left ring finger, one of which is believed to be her engagement ring.
The couple have yet to comment but no announcement has ever been made about a wedding date.
Earlier this year, the 'Can't Be Tamed' singer claimed she was in no rush to wed as she already felt married and didn't feel any urgency about walking down the aisle.
She said: "I already feel married. I know we are forever. I don't need the paper right now.
"I don't know when we will get married yet. We are still enjoying being engaged. I've got so much planning to do with the tours and getting my record out. First I have my movie, then my record - then I'll do my wedding planning."
The couple are believed to have spent Christmas with Miley's family in the US but are also reportedly set to visit Liam's family in his native Australia over the holidays.

MYTHS are the stories that groups tell themselves: the beautiful lies that allow life go on. This is a week of great myth making. In the death and interment of Nelson Mandela we are witnessing modern myth being made in front of our eyes. But myths can be pernicious and evil — corroding life as well as enhancing it.
