Eyewitnesses claim the 24-year-old “Sorry” hitmaker got down on one knee proposing to the 21-year-old model at a resort in the Bahamas on Saturday night (July 7).
TMZ reports two women said they were at a restaurant when Bieber’s security told everyone to put their phones away as something special was about to happen. The two witnesses then saw Bieber propose in front of everyone.
Witnesses said that everyone was salsa dancing, and a video posted by a fan on Instagram showed the couple in a celebratory mood as they dance together at the resort.
A separate source told TMZ that the couple got engaged on Saturday night.
The couple has been silent so far on social media, but the pop star’s father, Jeremy Bieber seemingly confirmed the engagement on Instagram Saturday.
“@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!” Jeremy captioned a photo of his son.
Fans reacted to the star’s father’s cryptic tweet, immediately asking if the couple had gotten engaged.
Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, also seemed to reference the special occasion on Twitter Sunday.
“Love Love Love Love Love Love Love,” she wrote.
Hailey Baldwin’s father, actor Stephen Baldwin, addressed the engagement with a Bible verse and a loving message of his own.
“Sweet smile on my face ! me&wife (Kennya) Always pray 4 Gods will !! He is moving in the hearts of JB&HB Let’s all pray for His will to be done ———— Love you 2 so much !!! #Godstiming #bestisyettocome Congrats ❤️ @JeremyBieber @pattiemallette #PraiseJesus,” Stephen tweeted.
Justin Bieber and Hialey Baldwin, who previously dated before splitting in 2016, have been inseparable in recent days, having been spotted dancing at a restaurant on Friday (July 6).
In recent weeks, the couple has been seen kissing around New York City.
Last month, Justin and Hailey also packed on the PDA in Los Angeles, where he was seen carrying her around a music video set.
“Ever since they reunited, they have been inseparable and Justin knows he can’t live without Hailey,” a source told E! News.
“Justin and Hailey had talked about marriage before but Hailey didn’t think it would happen so quickly. A few of their friends know from Facetiming them,” the source explained.
The engagement comes two weeks after Hailey purged her Instagram account of photos of Shawn Mendes, to whom she had been linked romantically over the past few months.
“I don’t know if they’re dating or not,” Mendes later said on eTalk Canada, when asked about Bieber and Baldwin.
“I love them both. They’re both really awesome people,” he added.
