Justin and Hailey are Engaged!
As I’m sure you’ve now heard Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are ENGAGED! Rumors sparked when Justin’s father Jermey posted a picture of Justin on his instagram and wrote “@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!” Fans speculated the caption might be about new music or possibly something to do with his rekindled love with longtime friend Hailey Baldwin.
Soon after, Hailey’s dad, Stephen Baldwin, posted on Twitter congratulating the newly engaged couple with a Bible verse from Ephesians and reads:
"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless"
Stephen added with the Bible quote his own words, writing,
“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"
He has since deleted the original tweet, presumably because Justin and Hailey wanted to be the ones to announce the engagement and replaced the tweet with a simple Bible verse and nothing directly mentioning Justin or Hailey.
Not too long after, Justin confirmed the engagement himself on Instagram with a beautifully sappy post along with two photos of the couple the reads:
“Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, 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. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense! The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!! Gods timing really is literally perfect, we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT! Isn’t that nuts? By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!”
Hailey took to Twitter to announce the engagement,
“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.”

Although what may seem as a somewhat fast engagement to some, others have suspected the two may have been back together for months before they were photographed together in public a few months prior.
Y’all need stop talking about Justin and Hailey like that couple who know each other since one month ago, they know each other since 2009, before being a couple they were best friends, a lot of things have happened together so STOP comparing with the others.— S🇨🇴 (@jdbieberxhrb) July 28, 2018
justin and hailey probably started talking a whiiile ago and people really think they started this last month.....u can't know and see everything on social media u know..... Just bc we didn't see them in public together before doesn't mean they didnt hang out. Privacy exists— 🌹 (@biebscentineo) July 10, 2018
The couple have known each other since 2009 and been friends for years. They dated off and on for a couple years and it was no suprise when they started hanging out again earlier this year.
Justin and Hailey look so cute together and I love it because they've been friends since before his career took off.— CHRISTIANNE (@miserableis) January 23, 2015
If you’re anything like me, check out this thread of Justin and Hailey (made almost a full year before they announced their engagement!) and cry with me about how adorable they are and happy I am for them
