"You Are The Love Of My Life Hailey Baldwin"—Justin Bieber Confirms His Engagement To The American Model In A Lengthy Instagram Post
It seems like only yesterday when the world was rejoicing over Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's reunion, which eventually ended last March. We’re still trying to get over that Jelena phase—and now, Justin shocks us yet again by putting a ring on Hailey Baldwin.
The Canadian singer, 24, professed his love for the 21-year-old American model and TV personality through a rare Instagram post that confirmed their engagement.
In his lengthy post, Justin said that Hailey is the love of his life, and that he "wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else."
"My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first," Justin captioned his black and white photo with Hailey, adding that she makes him "so much better."
In the same post, he also revealed that they got engaged last July 7, which he feels was a perfect timing. "We got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection," he explains.
Justin's huge sparkly ring for Hailey is said to be worth 2 million dollars.

The two were introduced to each other by Hailey's father, actor Stephen Baldwin, in 2009 when Justin was still a rising star with the hit single “Baby."
Though no hints of a budding romance at the time, that introduction did pave the way for them to be really good friends.
Though they have known each other for awhile and were likely to be a couple, the two insisted that there was nothing going on between them. In 2014, Hailey was quoted in an interview, reiterating the fact that they were just friends.
"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 News. "We have just stayed close and there's nothing more to it than that."
To support this statement, Justin also posted a photo with Hailey on Instagram with the caption: "People are crazy. I'm super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise."
In 2015, they spent New Year's Eve together, further fueling dating rumors. But again, Hailey was quick to comment. Hailey told E! at the amfAR New York Gala, “He’s just going through a time in his life where he’s transitioning in a really positive way and he needs good people around him. And I’m trying to be a good friend and be there for him and support him.”
When news of them dating started circulating again, they were reportedly in a "non-exclusive" relationship. But the many instances they showed affection towards each other showed otherwise. Finally, in January 2016, they were spotted making out and vacationing in St. Bart’s, which was enough confirmation of the status of their relationship. That same year, they reportedly broke up.
It wasn't until last month when the couple made headlines again, as they were photographed hugging and kissing each other.
Then, surprise! They're now engaged, with Justin making it Instagram-official.
Now, we're waiting for Hailey to share her thoughts about this milestone in her life. We're sure she's still over the moon. Who wouldn't be?!
