Billy Ray Cyrus is gushing over daughter Miley Cyrus’ “spirit”.

“She’s a giver. She believes that we’re all put here for a reason, and that’s to give back to our fellow man,” he told US Weekly.  “I’m real proud of her.”

The “Old Town Road” singer said that when Miley was born, they named her Destiny Hope because they knew she was “special”.

Billy also had lots of praise for Noah who he is “extremely proud” of.

“It is absolutely mind-blowing,” Billy said of Noah’s EP, The End Of Everything. “If they have the Grammys [in] 2021, she should be nominated for [a] Grammy. … It is a really special record.”
