Whoa. Very good “friends” Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are now engaged, according to TMZ. The tabloid says Bieber reportedly popped the question on Saturday night in front of a bunch of people at a resort in the Bahamas.
“They say everyone was at a restaurant on the property doing salsa dancing when Justin's security told everyone to put their phones away, because something special was about to happen,” the report reads, citing two anonymous sources. “They say Justin then proposed in front of everyone.”
Though the report hasn’t been confirmed by either of the young celebs, Justin’s dad seems to be in full support of his son’s engagement. He posted a photo of Bieber on Sunday with the caption “@justinbieber proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!" Of course this post could be about anything, but Beliebers in the comments think all signs point to Hailey.
The former exes linked up about a month ago, following Bieber’s billionth split from singer Selena Gomez in March. At the end of May, Baldwin told U.K. newspaper the Times that Bieber and her had moved on from their previous post break-up awkwardness. She also called their first romantic relationship “weird,” so it's unclear what might have changed in the past few months that made these two ready to tie the knot.
"[The breakup] brought both of us to the realization that we just work much better as friends," she said, referring to their first breakup in 2016. "He’s somebody I really cherish. Now it’s a very mature situation. It’s good."
This isn’t the first brisk celebrity engagement of 2018. Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson take the cake when it comes to moving their relationship at warp speed, but this Bieber-Baldwin situation could be a little messier, considering Selena Gomez’s summer hit “Back To You” might be about her wanting to get back together with Justin.
