Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin had the most dreamy New Year’s Eve

A few days ago, Justin Bieber posted some swoon-worthy pics from his tropical vacation with his family and friend Hailey Baldwin. Justin and Hailey hung out in the sun and sand, making us wish it was summer already.

While the two look pretty cozy and adorable in these pics, Hailey has insisted they aren’t dating.  “I’ve known him since I was so young—since I was like 13—and we’ve just been good friends over the years,” she told E! in December of 2014. (Yep—that’s how long this “will they or won’t they?” relationship has been going on.) “We have just stayed close and there’s nothing more to it than that.”

Okay, okay, if you say so. But their New Year’s Eve together was still pretty dreamy. See?

Regardless of whether these two are dating, they sure look like they have a lot of fun together.

The duo that shares hair ties together, stays together. (As friends, or maaaaaaaaybe something more.)
