Is this proof that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth eloped over Christmas?

Have Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth secretly tied the knot?

Miley's latest pictures posted on Instagram have sparked speculation that the 20-year-old star and her Aussie fiancé have eloped.

In the Christmas photo, Liam can be seen wearing what looks like a wedding band on his left ring finger.

Another pic shows Miley wearing what appears to be an extra white gold band next to her engagement ring. See the video above and investigate for yourself — where's Sherlock Holmes when we need him?

The couple confused everyone a bit more when they were spotted taking their puppy Mary Jane out for a walk on December 27 — wearing no wedding bands at all. Come on, you're messing with our minds here!

The pair got engaged in May. Liam gave Miley a 3.5-carat diamond ring for their engagement.

Back in November, Miley denied a rumour started by her own dad Billy Ray that she was having three weddings in Los Angeles, Australia and Tennessee.

"I don't know what my dad is doing, or where my dad is on the planet. My dad knows nothing," she told Entertainment Tonight.

She added that her father probably started the rumour as a joke.

"He does what I do when he's sitting in a press thing, he's like, 'Let's make this fun. Let's make stuff up. Let's get the ball rolling on some good rumours, because I'm bored and I can start something'," she said.

Perhaps the latest ring episode was just a cheeky prank on us? Even so, secret weddings have been all the rage for celebrities this year. Kate Winslet kept her early December nuptials to Richard Branson's nephew Ned Rocknroll a secret for weeks before the news hit the headlines yesterday.

Anne Hathaway tied the knot quietly to Adam Shulman in September, while Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got hitched in secret that same month.
