Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin love to tease their fans and it seems like they did quite a good job in sending them into a frenzy as the 'Stitches' singer shared a picture of him and Hailey on Tuesday (April 3) on his Instagram. Though the picture was captioned with two camera emojis and did not hint at anything, fans are convinced that the pair have been secretly dating. 

One fan wrote, "You're so beautiful together," while another wrote, "GUHHHHHHHH Insta confirmed." In fact, apart from the fans, it seems like the two have got the approval stamp by their celebrity friends as well. Their friends like Paris Jackson, Kelly Osbourne, Calvin Harris, Rita Ora and Zedd liked the picture and Julia Michaels even commented on the picture with the heart emoji. 

The pair has been giving rise to dating rumors since late 2017. The news about their relationship first surfaced when the two were spotted holding hands at a Halloween party that was hosted by their pal Kendall Jenner. Talking to E!, a  source close to the pair said that the two had started off as friends but soon saw the chemistry between them. 

"It started out casual as they would run into each other at parties and hangout, but most recently it's become more serious," the source said. "They are definitely dating and spend a lot of time together." At that time it was reported that the duo was trying to spend as much time as they could together while making sure that they were away from the eyes of the media. 

"A few months ago they were sneaking out of public venues like Delilah while trying to not make a scene and now they have gone on private vacations to Europe. Their relationship has grown and they don't care if anyone sees them now," the source added. Prior to this, Shawn and Hailey were often photographed together which further convinced people that they were seeing each other. 

Even though the couple may not have confirmed their relationship, the source says that Shawn really likes Hailey. "Hailey is not one to make things a huge deal, but Shawn worships her," the source shared. "He is definitely considerate of her busy schedule and her feelings. They are really cute together."
