Ever since their relationship seemingly began back in October of 2019, Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson have been the subject of intense media scrutiny, given their notable positions in pop culture. Most recently, the couple has been faced with countless rumors surrounding the notion that Cyrus is pregnant with her and Simpson’s baby.
However, in a new revealing interview with Australian morning show ‘Today’, as reported by Entertainment Tonight, Simpson decided to set the record straight regarding the controversial rumors.
“Oh yeah, I’ve been pregnant for years apparently,” the singer initially joked about the rumors surrounding him and Cyrus, but his tone quickly turned more serious as he directly addressed the rumors about his personal life.
“You’ve just gotta take it in stride,” he said. “What I try to do is just focus on my work and what’s important to me, and for me that’s my work and my music. The rest just kind of comes along with it. It’s all part of it.”
“You just have to take it in stride and be cool with it,” he concluded in the interview.
This was actually not the first time Simpson addressed rumors surrounding his private life to the public media. Rumors about him and Cyrus developing beyond a picture-perfect relationship have been brewing nearly since their inception, but back in January, Simpson also addressed the situation during an interview on ‘The Kyle and Jackie O Show.’ When asked if the prospect of having children cross his mind, he responded candidly, “not yet, mate.”
The pair have been noted friends for years, but only began officially dating following Cyrus’ split from actor Liam Hemsworth earlier in 2019. Their falling-out was highly publicized in the media, and fans who were shocked at the split were eager to see how the new relationship between the two long term friends would develop over time.
When the podcast hosts asked Simpson at the time if he and Cyrus were on solid ground in their relationship, he responded very briefly, “we’re amazing, no complaints.”
Also, while previously speaking to People about their relationship, Simpson went into further detail, saying, “I’m very happy. We are very, very happy. 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.”
“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,” Simpson went on to add.
