A source close to the model confirmed the happy news to Us, adding that Baldwin “is obsessed with Justin and always has been.”
TMZ was the first to break the news, reporting that the “Love Yourself” singer, 24, popped the question to Baldwin, 21, on Saturday, July 7, in front of a crowd at a resort in the Bahamas. Bieber reportedly had his security tell everyone to put their phones away “because something special was about to happen.”
Meanwhile, Bieber’s dad appeared to share his excitement over the engagement in an Instagram post on Sunday, July 8. “Proud is an understatement,” he wrote alongside a pic of the singer in front of a gorgeous sunset. “Excited for the next chapter!”
The “Where Are U Now” crooner’s mom seemingly shared her enthusiasm on Twitter Saturday afternoon. “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love,” she wrote.
A fan account on Instagram also captured the two looking lucky in love with vacationing in the Bahamas on Saturday where Bieber held tight to his love while kissing her on the face.
Us Weekly exclusively broke the news that the couple — who had previously dated from 2015 to 2016 — were hooking up again on June 13, just days after the two were spotted together at the W South Beach in Florida.
“Hailey has always loved Justin and they have been best friends, so it’s no surprise that they’re hooking up again,” an insider told Us at the time.
Another source told Us in late June that “they’re on — full-on. Justin is in such a better place. They’ve been friends for years and it never worked out. They’re having fun, but he really likes Hailey. They’re good for one another.”
Bieber and Baldwin have been inseparable in recent weeks. They were recently spotted strolling hand-in-hand after leaving a spa and dining at Cipriani in New York City on June 21.
An eyewitness told Us exclusively that the lovebirds “sat across from each other and kept up good conversation while making each other laugh and giggle the entire time.”
Prior to Baldwin, Bieber had a high-profile relationship with Selena Gomez on and off from 2011 to 2014. They briefly reconciled in November 2017 and split again in March 2018.
