Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged: Report
Heartbreak for Selena Gomez? Seems like Jelena is as good as over. Bieber has made his choice and he made it public by getting engaged to his former flame Hailey Baldwin.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged! The 'Sorry' singer popped the big question on Saturday (July 7), as reported by TMZ. Two eyewitnesses told the website that the singer went down on one knee in a resort in the Bahamas. They recalled that everyone at the resort was enjoying a salsa dance when Justin's security asked people to put down all their phones away because something special was going to take place. It is then that the singer asked the model to marry him with a gorgeous wedding ring. The two sparked dating rumors a month ago after they were spotted together. The two had previously dated in 2016 but split soon after.
After his split with Hailey, Justin then started dating Selena Gomez but things did not end well for the pair. The two went their separate ways in March this year and at that time the two were said to be on a break but seems like that parting is permanent now.
Justin and the 21-year-old model have not been shying away from showing PDA ever since they got back together in June. Reports claim the two had met last year around December and since then had been in touch. Kind of confirming the news, the 24-year-old's dad, Jeremy left no time in congratulating his son on social media. Taking to Instagram, he commented on a picture of Justin and wrote, "Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!" The singer's mother, Pattie also took to Twitter and posted a cryptic message which read, "Love Love Love Love Love Love Love." Even though Justin and Hailey's close family and friends are extremely happy about the engagement, there are many who are not too welcoming about the idea of Justin being engaged to anyone else other than his past fling, Selena. Fans are still hoping for a Jelena reunion.
Hailey had never really been out of the picture as a 2016 interview of the singer now shows. While posing for the cover of GQ in March that year, the singer admitted the model was "someone I really love".
E News quotes Justin as having revealed much more in the GQ profile interview: "I know that in the past I've hurt people and said things that I didn't mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I'm just more so looking at the future, making sure I'm not damaging 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."
People were quick to take it to Twitter to express their sadness over the news of Justin and Hailey being engaged. "If Justin Bieber really is engaged to Hailey Baldwin. My heart breaks twice, once for myself and once for Selena," one fan commented. Meanwhile, his dear fans were heartbroken that the Justin was officially taken. "Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are engaged... my 14-year-old self is crying and singing That Should Be Me (ft Rascal Flatts)" wrote one fan.
While another added, "Justin Bieber is engaged to Hailey Baldwin and I have never been so sad in my entire life. Did she know every word to his songs? Did she go to all of his concerts? Did she buy all purple cause he said his fav color is purple? Did she even watch Never Say Never?!"
Earlier this year, Selena had just broken up with The Weeknd and was again spotted getting comfortable with Justin. Selena and Justin soon confirmed their romance as pictures of the pair kissing surfaced on the internet. The pair even attended Justin's dad's wedding. However, the pair did not last together for long and decided to split again. The singer hasn't reacted or commented on the news her former boyfriend's engagement and had been spotted on Sunday enjoying a boat ride around Liberty Island.
