"Somewhere along the stress and strain of different things I didn't see her smiling as often for a little while and all of a sudden she's like the sun, and when she smiles it's light. Everything happens for a reason and the main thing for me, as Miley's daddy, is she's happy."

Billy Ray also gave an update on his showbiz family- "I've really enjoyed the time I've been allowed to spend with Noah lately. I've never known normal. Miley's never known normal.
