"One day," Hemsworth says of starting a family with his 26-year-old bride. "Once we don’t have so many dogs. You couldn’t bring a baby into our house right now. But one day, we’ll know when it’s right. But right now? Not for the time being."
The couple may be outnumbered by pets now with some seven dogs, two pigs, many horses and multiple cats, but Hemsworth hopes that someday in the future it's babies they'll be surrounded by, revealing he hopes to have "10, 15, maybe 20."
While kids may not be in the immediate plan for Hemsworth and Cyrus, the pair has already been through a lot of life changes in the last year, which Hemsworth says was "pretty hectic." The couple lost their home to the California wildfires and tied the knot just over a month later.
"My house was in the middle of the red zone. My property is super dry, with big eucalyptus trees, and I’d been saying for years that if ever there was a spark in the canyons, it was just going to go up," he says. "About three or four a.m., I got a call from Miley. She’d found out from a friend, and that was when she told me it was gone. That was pretty gut-wrenching. It was actually real. And it’s just a hard, hard thing to come to terms with."
"Overnight, you literally lose all your possessions and your space, your nest," he continues. "Obviously there are photos and things like that, but the one thing I wish I did grab was this Rolex that Lionsgate had given me as a present, after the first Hunger Games film came out. I always imagined giving it to my first son or something. I don’t hold too much sentiment to possessions, but that was probably the one thing I wish I’d taken."
After such a devastating experience, the couple saw no reason to wait to say "I do."
"I was 18 when I met Miley. We really fell in love quickly and had a really strong connection from the beginning and I think in the back of my head I knew it was on the cards, but we weren’t planning to have a wedding anytime soon," he says. "Then just going through something this emotional with someone, it brings you closer and we felt like we’d lost a big part of our lives, so we wanted to make a new part of our lives. It was something really good coming out of a horrible situation. It was going to happen eventually, but I think this just sped it up a little bit."
In the March issue of Vanity Fair, Cyrus also spoke about the life changing time in their lives, agreeing with Hemsworth that the fires pushed up their relationship timeline.
"I’m not sure without losing Malibu, we would’ve been ready to take this step or ever gotten married, who can say?" she said. "But the timing felt right and I go with my heart. No one is promised the next day, or the next, so I try to be 'in the now' as much as possible."
“When you experience what we experienced together with someone, it is like glue," she continued. "You’re the only two people in the world who can understand.”
Since their December 2018 nuptials, Hemsworth says he and Cyrus have "a more connected, deeper version of your relationship before you got married."
"She’s super wacky. I’m super wacky. And together, it brings out the wackiness," he tells the magazine. "But she never turns it off -- it’s always there."
