The whole thing has been quite the whirlwind, from the pair rekindling their former flame in June (they first dated back in 2016) to Justin popping the question in the Bahamas on the seventh day of the seventh month.
Here’s everything you need to know about the pair’s engagement…
While the Biebs was planning on keeping the engagement under wraps, it’s hard to keep these things a secret when you’re two of Hollywood’s hottest young stars. And so the Justin took to Instagram to let everyone know the deal straight from the horse’s mouth.
Sharing a couple loved-up snaps of the pair, he wrote: “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! [sic]”
He continued: “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! [sic]”
“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,” he added.
The parent’s announcements
Before Justin let the cat out of the bag, Justin and Hailey’s parents had kinda given the game away anyway (we can hardly blame them, can you even imagine their excitement?).
Hailey’s pop’s joy as he headed over to Twitter to write: “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 [sic]”
Stephen has since deleted the tweet, but he originally shared it alongside a verse from the bible and tagged Justin’s parents.
One congratulatory social media post that has stayed firmly put is the one uploaded by Justin’s dad, who took to Instagram to (sort of) confirm the news.
He wrote: “@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!” alongside a candid snap of his newly-engaged son.
Meanwhile his mumsie, Pattie Mallette, took to Twitter to write: “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.”
According to TMZ, Justin popped the question at a resort in the Bahamas on Saturday 7th July.
Eyewitnesses claim Justin’s security asked everyone to put their phones away because: “something special was about to happen,” and sure enough, Justin went on to ask Hailey that special question.
One fan spotted the pair soaking up the sun on their holidays, and sure enough, Hailey was sporting quite the sparkler on that all-important finger.
JB and HB have been pretty inseparable since reigniting their former flame last month.
The pair were first spotted looking all kinds of cosy in Miami in early June, but their relationship dates waaay back. In fact, Justin kinda predicted his engagement to Hailey back in 2016.
In an interview with GQ at the time, he said: “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.”
Just call him mystic Biebs.
Selena Gomez’s reaction (or non-reaction)
But it wasn’t all that long ago that Justin reconciled with Selena Gomez, who was arguably his most significant previous relationship.
So obvs we’re wondering what SelGo makes of her ex-ex-boyfriend getting engaged so quickly.
But it seems she DGAF.
Sel was living her best life on a boat of the coast of New York right when the news broke, and we know this because her pal Theresa Mingus left the receipts on the ‘gram.
Looking like the epitome of chilled, Sel looks carefree in a bikini as blue as the beauts sky behind her. And let’s face it, she’s probably sleeping easy at night knowing ain’t no man doing her wrong.
Phew! What a whirlwind, but it has to be said we couldn’t be happier for the pair who are clearly madly in love with each other.
