Are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Really Engaged? Dad Pens Cryptic Instagram Message

Are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin engaged? Based on a TMZ report and an Instagram post, they might be. The site reported that Bieber proposed to Baldwin at a resort in the Bahamas on Saturday evening. The couple was reportedly salsa dancing when Bieber’s security asked onlookers to put their phones away.

While the couple has yet to confirm the engagement rumors, Bieber’s father gave the public a big clue. Jeremy Bieber posted a cryptic photo and message on his Instagram Sunday morning. The photo, seemingly of Justin against a sunrise or sunset, was captioned “@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!”

Fans are speculating this message could be confirmation of the engagement.

Baldwin and Bieber have been together for one month, but have had an on and off again relationship for nearly four years. Rumors that the couple were first together began in 2014, according to Seventeen. The relationship between Bieber and Baldwin was confirmed when Bieber posted a photo of the couple kissing on Instagram in January 2016.

The pair, however, quickly broke up amid Baldwin’s comments on the difficulty of dating a celebrity.

"Texts started coming through, crazy phone calls... it's hard to date somebody in this industry," she told Marie Claire. "You have to have really thick skin and be very strong. You have to focus on the person and nothing else.”

The couple reignited their relationship last month, a they were seen kissing on June 18.

Bieber foreshadowed the possibility of marrying Baldwin in a 2016 interview with GQ. “What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right?”

In the interview, Bieber spoke of how he wasn’t ready for a committed relationship.

“If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged. It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. It’s so hard.… I just don’t want to hurt her.”

Baldwin is a 21-year-old model. She previously dated musician Shawn Mendes between her relationships with Bieber. Mendes, when asked on Canadian talk show ETalk about Baldwin and Bieber’s new romance, said he was happy for the pair.

“I think that’s awesome,” he said. “I love them both. They’re both really awesome people. When I first started out, everybody was like, ‘Oh, how do you feel about being compared to Justin?’ I was like, ‘What do you mean, how do I feel?’ That’s the best thing anyone could say to me. He’s the man.”
