Noah Cyrus is 18 and her new beau Lil Xan is 21.
So it is no surprise that they met in an eminently modern way, as Noah shared on the red carpet at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards.
'Xan slid into the DMs. It works people,' said the little sister of Miley Cyrus to E! News, before amending: 'Actually, it didn't work.'
Origin story: Noah Cyrus is 18 and her new beau Lil Xan is 21, so it is no surprise that they met in an eminently modern way
She shared: 'He DMed me like in February and I didn't see it for months and then I saw that he was following me and I was like: "Lil Xan, cool, he's following me. I'll follow him back," And then I saw his DM and we're just hanging out making music.'
On the subject of whether she and Lil Xan might release some music as a duo, Noah said: 'Maybe. Maybe really soon. You're reading my mind.'
As for her loved ones' approval, Noah dished, beaming: 'My family wants whatever makes me happy and I'm so happy. This is my face at all times.'
Posing up a storm: 'Xan slid into the DMs,' said the little sister of Miley Cyrus to E! News on the red carpet at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards
Elsewhere in her life: 'I'm just focusing on my music and working with really cool artists that I didn't grow up in a house with.'
Not only is Noah the younger sister of Miley, but they are both the daughters of Achy Breaky Heart singer Billy Ray Cyrus.
Noah plugged to E! News: 'My EP is coming out really soon. I'm so excited. And I'm going on tour in September. I can't wait.'
Her parents Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus were married in 1993, and though they have found themselves on the brink of divorce in the past, they are together still.
Meanwhile, Miley is currently with her longtime man Liam Hemsworth, the dashing Hunger Games star and brother of Thor beefcake Chris Hemsworth.
The Teen Choice Awards were held at The Forum in Inglewood on Sunday night, hosted by comedian Nick Cannon and social media star Lele Pons.
