Since Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth reunited in 2016, rumours that they've wed in secret have been rife.

But the former Disney star decided to open up about her relationship during a recent interview with Howard Stern.

During an interview on the Howard Stern Show, Miley said that she had come up with a new name for Liam following the devastating LA wildfires earlier this year. The Wrecking Ball singer revealed that Liam had helped to save all of the animals from their Malibu home before the fires reached them.

She started: 'So actually, Liam, I’ve never loved him more for this—'

'This is your boyfriend? Fiancé?' Stern asked.

'Yeah, kind of-ish,' Miley replied. 'My partner, I call him my survival partner now. He thinks it’s not romantic, but I learned that it is.

'That is why you pair up with someone, for survival, and he was so incredible. He got all the animals out in his truck.'

Miley went on to joke: 'He got a lot of action for saving the animals. Yeah, he got a lot of action. We had to make sure he knew I was very, very grateful.'

The couple 'travel around together', according to Miley, who explained: 'You know, usually we live in Malibu, but right now we live in Nashville and [are] adjusting.

'I think the hardest thing for both of us right now is to go back. A lot of people are starting to get back to their homes, people that didn’t lose their homes, but Malibu isn’t the same for right now. The air quality, the water, he surfs everyday...'

Other than that, they live a 'really regular life', with Miley boasting that Liam is a 'really amazing cook.'

Oh, these two <3
