According to PEOPLE, Justin Bieber is engaged to his girlfriend, Hailey Baldwin. The couple has yet to confirm the engagement, but both of their families have posted now-deleted congratulations online.

Hailey's father, Stephen Baldwin posted on Instagram to congratulate the happy couple. He's clearly over the moon about the surprise engagement.

“Sweet smile on my face! me&wife (Kennya) Always pray 4 Gods will !! He is moving in hearts of JB&HB,” he wrote in the post that has since been deleted.

“Let’s all pray for His will to be done Love you 2 so much !!!,” he wrote, adding the hashtags: “#Godstiming” and “#bestisyettocome.”


He also congratulated his daughter's future in-laws before adding "#PraiseJesus."

The serious Christian concluded his tweet by including a Bible verse. He quoted Ephesians on the importance of husbands loving their wives.

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless."

Baldwin's dad wasn't the only one to comment on the news. His parents also posted on social media.

Bieber’s father wrote, “@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!”

Meanwhile, his mother wrote on Twitter, “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.”


Bieber, 24, reportedly asked Baldwin, 21, to be his wife on Saturday night. They are on vacation in the Bahamas.

The couple, who originally dated in 2016, have only been back together for a few weeks. However, a source told PEOPLE that the proposal wasn't entirely surprising.

“It’s kind of a surprise, but kind of not. Justin has been extremely happy these past few weeks,” a source told PEOPLE. “He has known Hailey for a long time. This might seem sudden, but they know each other very well.”

The couple hasn't commented on their engagement, but Baldwin does appear to be wearing a diamond engagement ring. Pictures from their vacation in the Bahamas show her wearing a large sparkler.


Bieber and Baldwin had a messy split in 2016. After the breakup, they went through a long period of time where they weren't friends, Baldwin had revealed recently.

“Justin and I were friends for a long time,” she said in the interview. “I met him when I was really young and he was one of my best friends. Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you’re 18, 19. It was what it was … We didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on … we’ve moved past that.”

She and Bieber rekindled their romance this summer. Before that, he had reunited with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

According to someone close to Bieber and Baldwin, they bonded over their Christian faith and shared church parish over the years.

“They’re very close because of Hillsong,” the insider told PEOPLE. “She definitely cares about him. They also have a long history together.”
