Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are officially engaged, with the “Sorry” singer confirming the news on Instagram after eyewitnesses reported that he popped the question to his on-again, off-again girlfriend on Saturday night.
In a lengthy Instagram post on Monday, The Biebs writes that he had planned to “wait a while to say anything but word travels fast.”
Addressing his fiancee directly, Bieber adds: “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.”
He adds: “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!”

Baldwin also issued a sweet confirmation on Twitter, writing that she is “utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with!”
TMZ was the first to report the news after two women said they witnessed Bieber, 24, propose to the 21-year-old model at a resort in the Bahamas. The women told TMZ that they were at a restaurant at the resort, where vacationers were salsa dancing, when Bieber’s security suddenly instructed everyone to put away their phones because “something special was about to happen.”
At that point, the women said that Bieber proposed to Baldwin (who reportedly said yes) in full view of everyone at the restaurant; meanwhile, a different source confirmed to TMZ that the couple are indeed engaged, and a source also confirmed the couple’s engagement to CNN.
Footage was posted on Instagram of Bieber and Baldwin dancing up a storm in The Bahamas:
Bieber and Baldwin dated back in 2015 before splitting up, but reignited their romance about a month ago, and have reportedly been inseparable ever since.
The singer’s father, Jeremy Bieber, gave the engagement his blessing in an Instagram post issued on Sunday morning, writing, “@justinbieber proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!”
Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, also offered a social media post apparently referencing her son’s engagement.
Baldwin’s father, “BioDome” actor Stephen Baldwin, also appeared to address the engagement on Twitter.
“Sweet smile on my face! Me and wife (Kennya) Always pray 4 Gods will! He is moving in the hearts of JB and HB Let’s all pray for His will to be done 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 Love you two so much !!!” he wrote in a tweet that he then deleted, adding: “#Godstiming #bestisyettocome Congrats ❤ @JeremyBieber @pattiemallette #PraiseJesus.”
He later issued another tweet, sharing a Bible verse:
After news of the couple’s engagement broke, celeb pals such as Paris Hilton and Ariana Grande (who deleted her Instagram post shortly after issuing it) took to social media to offer their congratulations.
