To the devastation of many teenage girl (and grown woman) Justin Bieber is officially off the market. As the news made the rumor mill, the groom-to-be made his engagement to girlfriend Hailey Baldwin official on July 10th with a loved-up announcement on his Instagram page. Justin, who has always been outspoken about his Christian values, shared, “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!” Bieber and Baldwin have reportedly been together for just over a month but the pair had previously dated in early 2016. The social media giants first met in 2009 at a meet-and-greet as teenagers.
Hailey has most recently been photographed wearing a ludicrously-sized diamond engagement ring. The model made first mention of the engagement with a tweet reading; “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!” she wrote. “No words could ever express my gratitude.”
Despite the lightening-speed of the engagement, Justin’s proposal was indeed planned. Sources close to the couple revealed that Bieber asked Hailey’s father, actor Stephen Baldwin, for his daughter’s hand in marriage several weeks ago in a face-to-face meeting.
Justin’s high-profile romance with fellow pop star Selena Gomez has been on and off since 2010. The pair reportedly split for the final time in March. Selena has yet to acknowledge the news but die-hard fans of the former couple wait with baited breath to hear her response to the speedy engagement.
