Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus (the people you can blame for bestowing Miley Cyrus upon the world) have called off their divorce, crediting couples counseling for their reconciliation.

"I spoke to Tish and she told me they both woke up and realized they love each other and decided they want to stay together," revealed E!'s Ken Baker, a family friend. "They recently went into couples therapy, something they hadn't done in 22 years of being together, and it's brought them closer together and really opened up their communication in amazing ways."

"They went into the therapy with the goal of divorcing in a way that was healthy for the children, but ended up coming out of it with the realization that they in fact want to stay together."

Tish, whom Baker said "sounds happy and energized about having this fresh start," also shared a photo of herself and her husband on Instagram captioned "Date Night" (see above) and the duo were recently spotted strolling hand-in-hand on the Malibu Beach Pier.

Back when their divorce was in the works, Tish cited the age-old "irreconcilable differences" excuse, and Miley had tongues wagging when she cryptically intimated her father may have been involved with one of his 'Chicago' co-stars. But apparently that's all water under the bridge now.

For those of you keeping score at home, this is the second time in three years that Tish and Billy Ray have announced they're divorcing, only to later have a change of heart.
