Justin Bieber proposed to Hailey Baldwin on July 7 at a resort’s restaurant in Bahamas. The singer, 24 and the model, 21 have been good friends from childhood until they found romance with each other. Baldwin appeared in a number of modelling campaigns like Vogue and Marie Claire; music videos and television shows. And Bieber is one of the best-selling artists globally in the music industry.
The dating rumors of them first sparked last 2014 and their brief relationship ended last 2016 because Justin doesn’t want to be “tied down” to Hailey during his massive Purpose world tour. The popstar also admitted then that he wants to enjoy the tour and the act of cheating while on tours was a huge reason why any of his relationship wouldn’t work out.
Though it was a relief for the Jelena fans to be seeing Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez hanging out together again last year till March of this year, with series of sweet photos and posts from the two, the former lovebirds later confirmed to be better off as friends. While Hailey Baldwin at that time was also linked to the singer-songwriter, Shawn Mendes which was her date at Met Gala 2018. Thereafter, Bieber and Baldwin are spotted multiple times together being comfortable with each other and just having fun.
They have recently spent time together rekindling their romance in Canada and New York, where they were photographed kissing and holding hands. And after showing PDAs and reigniting their romance for weeks, eyewitnesses said that Justin got down on one knee in front of everybody at Baker’s Bay just after his security plead everyone to put their phones away because of the proposal.
Day after, the two continued their celebration at the Nippers Beach Bar & Grill on Great Guana Cay in Bahamas and looked very happy with their engagement. Though the newly-engaged couple did not confirm publicly, Hailey on the other hand liked some congratulatory greetings in her social media account.
The parents of the couple seem to be very happy about the news. Hailey’s dad, the renowned actor Stephen Baldwin tweeted “Sweet smile on my face! Me&wife (Kennya) Always pray 4 gods will!! He is moving in the hearts of JB&HB. Let’s all pray for His will to be done,” he wrote alongside the hands-in-prayer emoji. “Love you 2 so much!!!” He also tagged the singer’s parents in this tweet expressing his congratulatory to their children. Jeremy Bieber then posted a picture of the Justin in Instagram with a caption “Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!” while Pattie Mallete, Justin’s mother simply tweeted, “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.”

Just like Ariana Grande and his fiancé Pete Davidson, JB and Hailey now also face criticisms of how fast their relationship escalated. But friends, family and fans have expressed their all-out support and love for the newly-engaged couple.
Later on, the couple broke their silence and finally confirmed through their social media accounts about the engagement. Justin wrote a lengthy caption in his Instagram account along with sweet pictures of him and Hailey saying "Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you," the message began. And soon after the future hubby’s post, Hailey tweeted “Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude" she wrote. The two are back in New York after their life-changing trip in Bahamas.
