If anyone in 2018 still has Bieber-fever, this news may break our heart. It seems that the Canadian singer, 24, is now engaged to model Hailey Baldwin, 21. Celebrity and entertainment website TMZ reported the couple’s alleged intent to wed, saying that Bieber popped the question while the couple were vacationing in the Bahamas last weekend.
You probably won’t catch any footage of the proposal, as Bieber’s security supposedly asked guests of the resort to put away their cell phones.
Bieber and Baldwin have been acquainted since they were teenagers both rising to celebrity status. Both have had serious relationships with other celebrities before, notably Bieber with his long-time on-and-off again ex former Disney star Selena Gomez, and Baldwin dating another Canadian singer, Shawn Mendes.
Baldwin and Bieber’s romantic history began in 2014 when paparazzi began catching them dating. Their status through the years has been on and off. Over the last two years, the pair had been seeing other people, but rumors report that they rekindled their romance over the last month.
Baldwin comes for a Hollywood family, being the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin and the niece of Alec Baldwin. Her father seemed excited by the news, tweeting “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…Love you 2 so much !!! #Godstiming #bestisyettocome Congrats ?? @JeremyBieber @pattiemallette #PraiseJesus.” At the time of this writing however, he has deleted the tweet.
Bieber’s parents also showed excitement on social media. His father, Jeremy Bieber posted a photo of his sun’s silhouette against a sunset with the caption “Excited for the next chapter.” Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallete, tweeted a cryptic but excited “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.”
