First it was Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. Now, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are reportedly engaged after a mere month of dating – sorry Jelena and Shailey shippers!
It all started when Biebs first met 14-year-old Hailey Baldwin backstage at The Today Show. Sparks flew and what followed was a whirlwind of “we’re just friends” encounters – having breakfast, attending a baking class, getting matching tattoos and even going on a tropical vacation together. It wasn’t until January 2016 that Biebs made it sorta Instagram-official with a picture of them locking lips, adding on that the supermodel is “someone I really love” in an interview with GQ a month later.
In that same interview, it’s also worth noting that the ‘Sorry’ crooner stated: “What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged. It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. I just don’t want to hurt her.” Well, it looks like Justin is now ready to take their relationship the next level – and he’s going all the way. Rumour has it that the 24-year-old allegedly popped the big question to Hailey during their trip to the Bahamas over the weekend, and from the looks of the Bieber fam’s not-so-subtle social media posts, it’s safe to assume that wedding bells are ringing.
Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.

It seems like just yesterday that we were crying over Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez getting back together, and swooning over Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin looking utterly OTP-worthy on the Met Gala red carpet. Oh, how times have changed!
At this point, neither Justin or Hailey have since confirmed the reports (hey, Biebs did wear a wedding ring to troll the paparazzi after all).
It’s official: the pop star has finally confirmed his plans to wed his “love of my life” in a lengthy Instagram post. As if it’s not already heart-fluttering enough, the husband-to-be even revealed that they got engaged on 7 July: “We got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT!” Now, BRB while we spam refresh on Hailey’s page for a picture of her huge diamond ring.
Congratulations to the lovebirds!
