He might've been one of your fave teen pop stars of the 2000s, and now that he's reportedly found love, you might notice some of his older songs becoming relevant again. After the news broke, fans' reactions to Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's reported engagement couldn't help but quote lyrics to a handful of throwback tracks.
As first reported by TMZ, Bieber reportedly popped the question to Baldwin, the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, while they were at dinner in the Bahamas. People in the area saw Bieber and Baldwin dancing at a restaurant on Friday, People reported, and on Saturday afternoon, the couple was spotted in public again, reportedly showing affection and heaps of PDA.
UPDATE: On Monday afternoon, Bieber confirmed his engagement to Baldwin with a lengthy Instagram caption. He also shared two black-and-white photos of the pair together, writing, in part:
"Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY."
EARLIER: “It’s kind of a surprise, but kind of not. Justin has been extremely happy these past few weeks,” an unnamed source told People. “He has known Hailey for a long time. This might seem sudden, but they know each other very well.”
The pair had gone through a messy breakup two years ago, according to CNN, and after they went their separate ways in 2016, Baldwin told the U.K. newspaper The Times that “we went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends.”
The “Love Yourself” singer and model-turned-Drop the Mic host fueled the rumor mill for fans recently when they turned up in public together, igniting speculation that they had gotten back together. This summer, the duo picked up where they left off as they kissed and doted on each other during trips to Miami, New York City, and the Hamptons.
As social media started to pick up on reports that Bieber, 24, had supposedly asked Baldwin, 21, to marry him during the tropical trip, fans posted their woeful reactions and quoted Bieber himself.
