Here’s a message to you, circa 2010: suck eggs, because in 2018, Justin Bieber is reportedly off the market.
TMZ reports that pop megastar Bieber, 24, went ahead and popped the question to girlfriend Hailey Baldwin, 21, in the Bahamas on Saturday night.
Two eyewitnesses told the celebrity news juggernaut that folks were dancing at a salsa joint when Bieber’s security detail asked everyone to pocket their phones, as they were about to see something big.
TMZ states Bieber then got down on one knee in front of the whole crowd, and that she said yes. Good on ’em.
The duo haven’t made any public announcements regarding the claim, but two posts from Bieber’s parents suggest their engagement is the real deal.
Bieber’s father, Jeremy, threw this up on Instagram after the reported proposal. Peep that caption:
And Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, had this to say:
Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.— Pattie Mallette (@pattiemallette) July 7, 2018
The reported engagement comes after about a month of dating (and very public make-out sessions in New York City), but the pair are hardly strangers.
Bieber and Baldwin dated for a while before going their separate ways in 2016. A source told People that “It’s kind of a surprise, but kind of not,” as the two have known each other for ages.
As we wait for official word from either Bieber or Baldwin, take a minute to appreciate the reactions from fans who aren’t stoked.
