Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably heard the news that Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are engaged! Find out here about all the romantic details, as well as how the whole relationship between the two blossomed over the years.
Are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin really engaged?
As a matter of fact, yes, they totally are! Not that long ago, another chapter in Justin Bieber bio started after he proposed to his bae, model Hailey Baldwin. The two of them have had an on-and-off relationship for several years, but Bieber must have decided that Baldwin was ‘the one’, so he popped the question while they were vacationing in the Bahamas.
Now, the media found out about this even before either of the involved made any announcements. Nevertheless, Justin took to his Instagram to share the happy news with the world via a rather lengthy post, while Hailey went on Twitter to gush about her fiancé.
But how did it come to this? If you have not been following either of them closely, you might not have noticed that they have had a thing going on. So why did Justin decide to propose to Hailey out of the blue? Continue reading, and we will tell you.

Even though the news about the engagement came as quite a surprise for everyone, Hailey and Justin have actually known each other for ages. Let’s take a look at the timeline of their rather tumultuous relationship.
The two met all the way back in 2009, when Justin was 15 years old and little Hailey was just 12. Baldwin’s dad Stephen took her to see Bieber before his appearance on The Today Show. This was very early in the morning, and it all happened really fast, so sleepy Hailey probably did not get to enjoy this encounter very much.
Who would have thought that in less than ten years she would be sporting an engagement ring from the same Justin Bieber she fangirled over in her teenage years?
Two years later, her dad took her to ‘Never Say Never’, the Justin Bieber concert-film. Of course, taking into account that Stephen Baldwin is not just some nobody, he and his daughter walked on the red carpet with the rest of the stars and even got a picture with Justin himself.

This time, Hailey was not in her pyjamas trying to keep her eyes open. Instead, she looked glamorous and cool, even though we cannot imagine what went through her head in that moment. Probably some high-pitched screaming.
For the next several years, Hailey remained a dedicated Bieber fan. Back then, she thought that the relationship between the Justin Bieber girlfriend of the time Selena Gomes and the musician himself was, as the youth now says, ‘couple goals’. On her Twitter, she gushed how perfect they both were and shared her fears of being ‘forever alone’. Oh, how the tables have turned!
When 2014 came around, Hailey’s dreams must have come true, as she and Justin became friends. The two were first spotted together at Hillsong Church, a place where many famous people came to worship the Lord. Soon after that, the rumour mill started running, and tabloids began talking of the budding romance between the two youngsters.
However, Justin was quick to dispel the rumours. Even though he broke up with Selena around the time the rumours began appearing, he was still adamant in setting things straight, so he posted a picture of himself and Hailey on his Instagram, claiming that he was single and Baldwin was just his ‘good friend’. Hailey also dispelled the rumours in her interview with E! News, pulling the ‘friendship card’ as well.

All that said, Justin spent his 2015 New Year’s Eve with Hailey, and less than a year later, he took her to Anguilla on vacation with his family. A little bit too much for just two friends, don’t you think? Well, it seemed like they thought so to, as a few days later, Bieber shared a photo of the two of them kissing.
In later interviews, they regarded their relationship as romantic, but Hailey insisted that they were not exclusive. At the same time, Justin talked about how Baldwin might be ‘the one’, so they were probably not on the same page.
Come August 2016, and the two cut all ties on social media. It was not exactly clear what happened, but many suspected that it was because Bieber flirted with Sofia Richie. For the next two years or so, there have been no news about Justin and Hailey. On the contrary, Bieber reunited with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, while Baldwin was rumoured to be dating Shawn Mendez, even though she claimed he was her ‘good friend’.
Now, in May 2018, Hailey gave an interview to The Times, where she talked about her relationship with Justin. She said that, even though there was a time when they were not friends, they have since moved on and became friends again, but nothing more than that.
Less than a month later, she made everyone doubt her words, as the young model was spotted in the company of her ‘good pal’ Justin at a club in Miami. They were caught hugging and cuddling, and both of those actions went beyond simple friendly gestures. And if that was not enough, the two decided to have a heated makeout session in the middle of New York without even attempting to hide.
Before the actual news of the engagement came, Justin’s father Jeremy shared a cryptic post on his Instagram, where he said he was proud of his son and ‘excited for the next chapter’.
Then, as you know, came the proposal and engagement, and the rest is history. It is certainly a very significant chapter in the Justin Bieber biography, as he would not just propose to anyone. That said, we will see how it all turns out, and we cannot wait to find out where or when the wedding is going to be. So cheers to the dearly beloved, and may they have many happy years together.
