Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin confirmed their engagement in a series of emotional social media posts
On Sunday, July 8th, 2018, news broke that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin had gotten engaged while on vacation in the Bahamas. TMZ broke the news and then Hailey’s dad Stephen and Bieber’s father Jeremy seemingly confirmed the engagement in their own social media posts. Justin and Hailey played coy at first, but earlier today the couple confirmed their engagement with his-and-hers social media statements. Justin opened his emotional Instagram post with a tribute to his future wife.
“Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you!” Justin wrote in the Instagram post. “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.”
Justin called their union “literally perfect” and mentioned that they got engaged “on the seventh day of the seventh month,” and that “the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection.”
Hailey tweeted just seconds after Justin’s massive Instagram post, and wrote:
"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! No words could ever express my gratitude."
TMZ originally broke the news and reported that Justin proposed on Saturday, July 7th while on vacation. According to an eye-witness, the couple were salsa dancing in a crowd when Justin’s security team asked all nearby guests to put their phones away while he popped the question. Justin and Hailey have been dating for a few weeks — though they reportedly met in 2009 and dated on and off in early 2016.

Justin apparently purchased a ring for Hailey at Solow & Co. in N.Y.C. “In the end, Justin wanted something that would gracefully accentuate Hailey’s beautifully-shaped hands,” designer Jack Solow told People.com. “We settled on an oval stone that was just exceptional in its length and grace. Look at her hands — she’s exquisite.”
Solow continued, “I showed him (Justin) all the details and all the intricacies like I would give any other 25-year-old boy who would come to the office to buy an engagement ring. He seemed really excited. He was looking inside the diamond with the loop, and said ‘I think I see Hailey’s face.’ ”
Congrats to the happy couple.
