On Sunday, TMZ reported that Justin Bieber had proposed to his girlfriend Hailey Baldwin. Less than 24 hours later, Bieber has confirmed his engagement.
The “Baby” singer, 24, announced that he will be marrying model Hailey Baldwin, 21. He posted a loving and faith-filled message to her on his Instagram.
“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!” Bieber wrote in the caption. “So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY."
Along with the caption, Bieber has her hand around Bieber’s shoulder. On her engagement finger, there is a simple band of diamonds.
He continued with a faith-filled promise about how he will act in their marriage. His post mirrored her father's wishes for them.
“I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make.”
“My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first!” he added. “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment each other so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!."
He also made it clear how important it is to them that they have a happy marriage. Bieber's parents are divorced.
"It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense! The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!!”
Once again referencing his Christian faith, the singer pointed out the significance of their engagement date, July 7, and the “spiritual perfection” of the number seven.
“Gods timing really is literally perfect, we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT!” he wrote. “Isn’t that nuts? By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA VE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!”
Shortly after his heartwarming post, the model tweeted her thankfulness. She also expressed her Christian faith.
“Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude.”
Bieber and Baldwin previously dated. They split in 2016.
After they broke up, they spent time not speaking. Both Baldwin and Bieber shared that they weren't friends for a period of time. Bieber revealed that they broke up because he didn't want to ruin their relationship in case they ended up getting married someday.
“What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? 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.” he told the magazine.
Congratulations to the couple! May God bless them on their engagement. In other news, fans of the royal family just got their first glimpse of Prince Louis since his birth. You can't miss these adorable photos!
