So just weeks after Ariana Grande presented us with the shocker that is her proposal with Pete Davidson, it seems Justin Bieber is also jumping on the surprise engagement trend (if we can call it that).
Reports – or rumours, at this point of time – have it that the What Do You Mean? singer is now engaged to model Hailey Baldwin, who is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin. The two have known each other for a very long time and were said to be dating at one point after Justin uploaded on Instagram a photo of them kissing on the New Year’s eve of 2016 (though the photo was uploaded days later). He described her to GQ as “Someone I really love. We spend a lot of time together.”
He also told them, “What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? 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. It’s so hard.… I just don’t want to hurt her.”
Although they seemed to have called it quits soon after, they were spotted showcasing some PDA in June, sparking rumours of them getting back together.
And it seems they decided to take their rekindled love to the next level – by getting engaged.

The pair was reportedly having a vacay in the Bahamas recently. As they were dining at a restaurant, the Biebs’ security reportedly told everyone to put their phones away because something special was about to happen.
He then proposed to Hailey. Nawww…
We don’t have more details on the proposal (because hey, no photos or videos) and the couple has yet to comment on anything. But Justin’s parents did leave cryptic messages on social media.
His father wrote, “@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!”
His mother’s was even more cryptic:
Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.

If the reports are true, we’re sending them our heartiest congrats.
And we’ll leave you with this tweet that every Belieber (and fangirl) can probably relate to.
Justin Bieber is engaged to Hailey Baldwin and I have never been so sad in my entire life… did she know every word to every song? did she go to his concert by herself? did she buy all purple clothes because he said it was his favorite color? did she even watch never say never
