Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have confirmed their engagement and declared their love for one another via social media.
On July 7, two sources told TMZ that the singer proposed to Baldwin at a resort in the Bahamas. Hours later, the couple’s parents posted some cryptic, and not-so-cryptic, messages about how happy they were for them.
Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, tweeted, “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.” And his father, Jeremy Bieber, posted to Instagram an image of his son on a beach with the sun setting in the background and the caption, “Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!”
Baldwin’s father, Stephen Baldwin, tweeted out a congratulatory message to the pair writing, “Always pray 4 God’s 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.” Apparently, the actor let things slip a little too quickly and ended up deleting the tweet.
Bieber later took to Instagram himself to confirm what we already knew but added a heartfelt message about his bride to be.
“Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast,” he wrote. “Listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make. My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else.”

The model hopped on social media as well and tweeted that she was “utterly grateful” for her fiancé.
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. ❤️

Two years ago, in a GQ profile, the Biebs actually talked about not wanting to hurt and possibly marrying Baldwin. The two dated previously from 2015 to 2016.
“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,” he said. “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.”
Reaction to the couple’s engagement news has been mixed. While some fans are happy for the couple, others feel for Bieber’s ex, Selena Gomez. The “Back to You” singer, however, doesn’t appear to be bothered by the news as she was photographed relaxing on a yacht in New York City with some friends over the weekend.
“Selena doesn’t care. She’s over Justin and the last time they broke up allowed her to get over him fully,” a source told Us Weekly.
