Justin Bieber and model, Hailey Baldwin, are set to walk down the aisle after Bieber proposed at a resort in the Bahamas on Saturday night. Witnesses reported to media outlets that guests were required to put down their phones when he popped the question.
Although Bieber and Baldwin have only been dating for a month, they have had an on-again-off-again relationship that started in 2014 when they met, which immediately sparked a friendship that evolved into romance over the years. Rumours state that the romance sparked back in 2015 and, in 2016, he opened up to GQ about his feelings towards Baldwin, saying she was “someone I really love. We spend a lot of time together.”
More recently, in 2018, Baldwin spoke of their relationship in an interview with Times UK saying, “Justin and I were friends for a long time. We went through a long period of time where we weren’t friends. We didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on. We’ve moved past that.”
She admitted that her and Bieber had gone through a messy break up in 2016. After calling it quits, “we went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends,” In the last month they have been inseparable leading up to the engagement and were spotted making out in Brooklyn, they’ve also started matching their styles.
Stephen Baldwin took to Twitter to express his excitement about the engagement tweeting: “Sweet smile on my face! me&wife (Kennya) Always pray 4 Gods will !! He is moving in hearts of JB&HB.” The enthusiastic tweet that since been deleted. “Let’s all pray for His will to be done Love you 2 so much !!!,” he wrote, adding the hashtags: “#Godstiming” and “#bestisyettocome.” He added a Bible verse at the end about husband loving their wives.
Bieber’s father hinted at the engagement news on Sunday, writing on Instagram: “@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!” Bieber’s mother also mentioned her son’s engagement the same day on Twitter, writing, “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.”
Twitter users also took to social media to express their disbelief about the news. "If Justin Bieber really is engaged to Hailey Baldwin. My heart breaks twice, once for myself and once for Selena," Twitter user @kaitpennington wrote. Many fans (including us) are still quite hung up on the Selena Gomez/Bieber romance but, like they did, we should probably just move on....
Although, a source close to Gomez reported that she was shocked that Bieber and Baldwin were engaged as she thought that they weren't that serious.
On the note of moving on, @BigNike tweeted, "All the girls who thought they’d have a chance with Justin Bieber are shook rn"
RIP to all the hearts that broke on Saturday!
