Miley Cyrus is reportedly 'surprised' to have 'fallen in love' with Cody Simpson.

The 27-year-old actress and singer was not expecting to settle down so quickly after her split from ex husband Liam Hemsworth.

It had looked like that Miley was returning to her 'wild ways' when she had a passionate affair with reality TV star Kaitlynn Carter but she has been caught by cupid quicker than she expected.

Miley and 22-year-old Cody entered their relationship as friends who shared time on the Disney Channel as common ground but it soon developed into more than being BFF's.

After around ten years with Hemsworth, on and off, it was thought that Cody was a rebound after he was caught kissing Miley over acai bowls.

Miley and Cody's romance has blossomed

They have proved everyone wrong though and their romance has blossomed and a source has told Hollywood Life : “Miley has always been more of a relationship kind of girl, she loves having someone special in her life and she always falls hard."

The source continued to say that the relationship was unexpected but has been a perfect response to her break up from Hemsworth.

They said: “She also wasn’t expecting to have a boyfriend so soon either, she wasn’t looking for that at all, this whole relationship has taken her by surprise in the best way.”

The moment when Miley really bought into the romance was when he 'dropped everything' to be with her, after she was hospitalised with tonsilitis.

There is also the simple fact that Miley feels she is an important part of Cody's life while he allows her "to do what she wants to do and needs to do.”
