Justin Bieber confirms engagement: ‘You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin’

A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged, and we just have to get used to it. We have to get used to it… until they aren’t engaged anymore. I mean, I’m not putting a ticking clock on their relationship, but from what little I know of Justin Bieber, he seems to… not be particularly reliable? He’s not the kind of guy who makes up his mind and then sticks to it. It’s more than possible that Bieber and Baldwin (Justley/Hailtin?) will end up getting married. But I guess I’m just not a Belieber. Incidentally, he’s 24 and she’s 21. I have to think that if I was a kid, I would be into this – I would think that they seemed very cool and grown-up and I would stan this engagement. But as a grown-ass adult, all I can think is “this sh-t is so juvenile and messy.”

Anyway, Justin and Hailey are now confirming their engagement on social media. Justin posted the above IG with this long-ass churchy message:

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. 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!

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!. 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!!! 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! 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 BE 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!!!!

[From Justin’s IG]

I don’t even know what to say. I actually was sort of weirdly moved by the “seventh day of the seventh month” thing, but he lost me completely with all of the Jesus stuff. No disrespect to Christians, for real, I just wasn’t raised that way and I always greet people who speak or write this way with a giant “??????” thought-bubble over my head. As for Hailey being the “love of Justin’s life” – I mean, that seems aimed at Selena. He’s telling Selena that she was never the love of his life.

Anyway, here’s Hailey’s message:

Hailey goes to Hillsong too, by the way. One last thing: Hailey’s apparently not a fan of Justin’s dirtlip. MAKE HIM SHAVE, HAILEY.

    I guess congratulations? Lol.

  2. Steph says:

    Well.. I know Justin gets a lot of hate but from what I’ve seen he seems like he wants to change. It’s sad that in his life people just want to exploit him, but who knows…

    • Silent Star says:

      I currently live in a small Canadian redneck town, and I gotta say, Justin has been looking like most of the small-town redneck boys around here for quite some time.

      Although it’s not a look I like, I must admit I admire him for eschewing the Hollywood gloss and just embracing his roots. Dare I say his look is more authentic now than it has ever been. I hesitate to criticize him for not fitting our expectations of what a rich superstar should look like. At least he’s not overly contrived like Johnny Depp, selecting faux-filthy statement items from his curated collection of hobo-rocker accoutrements.

      • Littlefishmom says:

        Yes. He’s getting older and changing his look. We’ve all been there. I have no hate for him. He’s been working since he’s four, let give the kid a break. Do I think he’s a drug addict? No. Does he smoke pot, yes. People are so quick to talk badly about him, he’s 24, and if we all remember, we did some stuff at that age. If they are happy, let them be.

  3. Samigirl says:

    This is going to be a spectacular trainwreck.
    1 month (especially today) just isn’t long enough. Period.

  4. Thatsallfolks says:

    Good for him. Move on. Selena is drama and an unstable mess.

  5. Mego says:

    Yes Hailey Mrs Right…now lol!

  6. Babs says:

    He lost me too at the Jesus stuff but weirdly, I liked his message. This reeks of passive-agressiveness towards SG but it is cute at the same time. What is happening to me?

  7. cee says:

    They compliment each other so well LOL no pun intended on his part.

  8. Abby says:

    Can we get them a bottle of conditioner to share?

    I agree if I was 20 I’d be all “awww” but I’m not so… I hope this goes well for them.

  9. ME says:

    I’m a heartless monster for thinking this but, similar to Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson… going to guess that drugs (and sometimes also Jesus) can really help bring a couple together.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I don’t think you are being heartless. I just think it is true. *shrug* I mean seriously.

    • Sigh... says:

      ‘Sometimes also Jesus”…and Scooter Braun 😌

    • Christina says:

      @ME and @magnoliarose: you are soooooo right. It just is, and it’s sad.

      Many people go to evangelicalism as the next addiction. It’s supposed to “fix” that last problem (drugs/alcohol/sex additiction/LGBTQ feelings) and help them accept that they are sinners who need God’s forgiveness; evangelicalism is supposed to be the cure, but it’s a bandaid that gives people permission to say “I’m working on myself” when they really aren’t. They learn some positive things, but they don’t address who they really are (drug addicts, alcoholics/sex addicts who need treatment and/or LGBTQs who need love and acceptance as they are). Hailey and Justin remind me of some of my relatives. My family grew up Catholic. Some became evangelicals. After studying the Bible as literature causes me to puzzle why anyone believes these things. Sigh…

  10. perplexed says:

    Didn’t Britney rush into a marriage at the same age? This could happen…followed by divorce.

  11. Queenb says:

    ” I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! ”

    When God wants you to spend your life with Justin Bieber you need a good look at what you have done to deserve that.

  12. Emily says:

    The wording of his post is more confirmation that the marriage is mainly about religion. I grew up Christian and am still Christian, but I’ve always side eyed people who got married super young, either because it was expected or to have sex.

    • MellyMel says:

      This all the way. So many of my friends got married before we even graduated college because of this and half of them are already divorced.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I very much doubt these two are planning a wedding just so they can have sex, though… 😕 🤷‍♀️

    • Pansy says:

      I grew up and still am a Christian too, and I know zero people who got married “so they can have sex.” While it’s true that the church recommends you waiting, it’s not something that has really stopped many people, just like the church recommends you not lie but plenty of people still do.
      The faith is so much more about love (the true faith, not denominations necessarily) and Christians believe in following God’s will, just like other religions do, so I understand his language. I think he means more looking for God in his relationship. And while he may look like he’s been drinking (you know us Christians do that too), overall he seems to be cleaner and happier. Whatever works for him is ok with me!

      • AMA1977 says:

        I think it matters what kind of Christianity you’re talking about. I was raised mainline Methodist and waited to get married until I was 28 and had met a mature, responsible adult whom I loved. He has family members who are evangelical/born again, and they have two daughters who both married very, VERY young and were divorced within a few years. One daughter waited and remarried several years later and is still married to that person; the other had another short-lived marriage soon after my husband and I married.

        I think that when you’re talking about churches that emphasize “purity” and “chastity” (you know, the kind of churches that talk about young women like they’re damaged goods once they’re no longer virgins) then you get a large number of young people who marry quickly and recklessly so that they can have sex within the rules of the church. I think it’s pretty common amongst many of the more fundamental denominations that emphasize outdated gender norms and roles.

      • MissM says:

        Iknew a couple who married at 21 and were divorced by 31. She told me that she married him because they wanted to have sex but it was more of a subconscious thing. Their desire was the main thing behind it and once they got past the horn dog stage the relationship was over because they lost interest and neither could regain it.

  13. mtam says:

    I know he meant that post to be for Hailey, but to me it seems much of it is very passive-aggressively meant for Selena. Like the boy doth protest too much.

    I feel bad for Hailey, she’s probably taking that as proof he loves her more than selena or any other ex, but to me it’s clear it’s a message to basically calm her jelousy and insecurities at least momenteraly, and to make selena either jelous or angry.

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

    Jail-y
    Just in hail lmao
    Balder
    Hailin
    Haitin
    Juley lol

  15. Michael says:

    I knew is was a Jesus thing.

  16. ISSAQUEEN says:

    This whole message was aimed at Selena. LOL. I’m sure he loves Hailey but what I’m getting from this is Selena hurt him(from what I heard she broke up with him that last time) and this is payback. Poor Hailey.

  17. Kim says:

    If she was the love of his life, then why was he just back with Selena?

    I don’t buy it.

  18. Shambles says:

    There was a time when I was 21 that I would have given anything for the guy who kept me on the back burner and used me constantly to decide he wanted to marry me. Girl, love yourself. I know how you feel. It gets better.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Hailey does not love herself. She’s never anything other than a side, consolation prize, beard or a pap stroll opportunity. She’s being used here to get at Selena. Maybe Selena left the cult of Hillsong?
      She does need to love herself and get far away from every single person in her life. Like move to a ranch in an undisclosed location and heal from her upbringing and what she has been doing since her teens. Selena isn’t much better off but she has more money to really get away and heal for the rest of her life but fame is a drug of its own and sometimes I think it is worse than any street drug or alcohol.

  19. Aren says:

    This is bad. I feel sad for everyone involved, including Selena. I hope they all manage to find peace and stability within themselves.

    • Carrie1 says:

      Same.
      I was thinking of Hailey’s father… and her mom I guess but mostly her dad as he seems to be an enabler of these two getting together. Any good father would not want his daughter marrying at 21 and especially not to someone who looked as the Biebs is looking these days. Her own family isn’t looking out for her well being. The girl has no idea. It’s painful to see.

      Selena had similar except her Mom was strong and in her corner. As long as one parent is like that, kids have a good chance of making wise decisions to get out of mistakes etc.

      Justin and Hailey appear alike here and that’s sad, for both of them.

      I’m relieved and happy Selena is choosing her own path. She has serious health matters to take care of and she always deserved better than this guy, sorry to say. Justin… he’s been lost a long time… not his fault entirely either given his parents being a mess also.

  20. Britt says:

    LOL, I just read that out to my partner and we both felt nauseated. Also the fact that my 10 year old daughter can’t stand JB for spitting on his fans from his hotel balcony means my job as a parent is done.

  21. Britt says:

    LOL, I just read that out to my partner and we both felt nauseated. Also the fact that my 10 year old daughter can’t stand JB for spitting on his fans from his hotel balcony means my job as a parent is done.

  22. MaryContrary says:

    Somewhere Jesus is rolling his eyes.

  23. Sam says:

    “I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything” That sounds very Duggar like, and wtf is this – ” “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!” This is the year of the favor? What kind of favors would what be? I’m not religious so all of this just sounds bizarre and creepy to me.

  24. Ash says:

    How does calling someone the love of your life seem directed at Selena? People say those words all the time in engagement announcements and IG relationship posts. Some folks idealize their relationship way too hard. He and Selena were so young when they dated seriously, and almost every moment of it was filled with childish drama. I’m not saying THIS relationship is going to work out long term, but I seriously doubt he cares about Selena. He hasn’t treated her well since he was what, 16?

  25. Ash says:

    That said, this probably is a weird phase where he’s just infatuated with Hailey again. They’re either doing drugs together, going to church together, or possibly both. I feel like he’s into Hailey but he’s just not stable in general at the moment.

  26. AnnaKist says:

    The number 7 thing. Hmm, let’s see… There were seven in my family. My father died on the seventh day. Seven days later, my brother turned 7. Seven years later my mother remarried, on 7th July. I was first sexually molested at age 7 at my family home, which, funnily enough, was Number 7,or as we referred to it, “The House of Horrors”. The number of “spiritual perfection”? Yeah…nah.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I offer an internet hug. I hate that you weren’t safe as a child. Really. You deserved better than that. I am sorry you suffered and I hope you have found some peace and contentment as an adult.
      I hate this world sometimes.

      The 7 thing is strange. ???

      • AnnaKist says:

        Thank you so much for your kind words, magnoliarose. Thankfully, my stubbornness, and I guess, resilience, got me through. I just had to wait until I got out of there, and I got out as fast as I could. My First abuser (it was only groping, but it went on until I was 32,and then my darling late husband intervened) was my older sister’s fiancé. She was married to him for 39 years, in a seriously abusive marriage for…39 years, until she caught him molesting their 4-year-old granddaughter. I finally confronted him, in front of his close friends. I am great. I am strong. I am an advocate for Child Safety. Thank you. X

  27. Pineapple says:

    I am not sure you can trust a person who wears hotel room slippers as outdoor shoes. Just saying …..

  28. megan says:

    Aw, I find it kind of sad. Clearly he is searching for something, for meaning, for love. Hopefully he matures and finds happiness and contentment somehow.

  29. TyrantDestroyed says:

    So he us getting married to his rebound girlfriend after a month or so of dating? Hmm, this will end up so well. Congrats to both of them I guess and I hope the two get good prenups.

  30. Miles says:

    So what did Selena tell him that made him write this passive aggressive mess of a post that’s supposed to be directed for Hailey but we all know is an indirect message to Selena.

  31. Susie says:

    Forget the dirt lip, is that a bascketball skirt?

  32. me says:

    Does anyone believe that Hailey is the ONLY girl he ever proposed to and wanted to marry? I can bet he proposed to Selena…probably more than once ! I am happy for them though. I just hope they don’t rush into getting married…enjoy being engaged !

  33. Laughysaphy says:

    He sounds manic in that post.

  34. Jordan says:

    They really need to put down the coke.

  35. Lana Del Hay says:

    I highly, highly doubt that he ever proposed to Selena! She would have said yes in an instant and made sure it was made public. She has been chasing that dream for years! Her whole career is based on that. Selena is has always appeared to be obsessing over him desperately, while he would prefer the company of every instagram model out there! She would still be with him if he hadn’t been openly cheating on her with Hailey the whole time. It looks more like Selena is his last priority. I feel bad for her and think that she should actually move on this time and take care of her mental health and just let these 2 and their weird relationship be.

    • Jen says:

      I agree! He had no love for Selena. It was ridiculously one sided. She put all her faith in him and was seemingly still hoping he would commit to her. I notice that Hailey always seems not to be overly invested in this relationship, although she probably cares about Justin since they go way back. I feel like this is one of those whirlwind things. Getting so famous so young is a tough road, and he seems a bit lost right now, and Hailey seems to be just going along for the ride.

    What brand is her outfit in the pic with him wearing his custom-made sidewalk slippers? Jokes aside, I feel very sorry for her.

  38. Leapin' Lizards! says:

    He looks totally zonked lately, no doubt to dull the realization that his career is going the way of Vanilla Ice.

  39. Bea says:

    Gross. All the Jesus crap us just that-really gross and weird. Blech. Overcompensation through and through.

  40. Ocjulia says:

    Has anyone watched Ylvis destroy him in their Stories From Norway series? They have a song called Normal Boy sung from Bieber’s perspective and it’s…it’s beautful.

    It’s on YouTube.
    ETA: Just put “Ylvis Normal Boy” in the search box. The dialogue is in Norwegian with subtitles but the song is in English.

  41. Bread and Circuses says:

    To be fair, sometimes you start dating someone and, very quickly, you both just know.

    And, to also be fair, sometimes you’re wrong, but I wish them the very best and I hope they remain as happy as they clearly are now.

    And I hope the dirtlip finds its true love too. Move on, dirtlip; you always deserved better than him.

    • mtam says:

      @Bread and Circuses

      See, I would be inclined to believe that if that post wasn’t (at least half) clearly directed at Selena.

      And also, if she hadn’t been someone he’s dated before and has since been his go-to rebound.

      I think that’s why Pete and Adriana seems more believable to me. They’re new to eachother. Haeily and Biebs have been on a messy, emotionally toxic merry-go round for a long time, and all of the sudden she’s the answer?—nah.

      Once he realizes living the idealized hetero*
      born-again christian life is not the answer to his problems, he’ll be on a fast-track to rock bottoming and reverting back to his old patterns.

      *obvs nothing wrong with whatever sexuality ppl are, just mentioned this because his culty church Hillsong (and born-agains in general) are very homophobic, and there’s been lots of rumours about Biebs, and also that pastor.

    What could go wrong?

    Mazel you crazy kids.

  43. SK says:

    Wasn’t Hailey dating Sean Mendez very recently?

  44. M.A.F says:

    Besides being the offspring of a lesser Baldwin, why is this Hailey person famous for? And in my book Instagram doesn’t count.

  45. LA says:

    I can’t be the only one to see the similarities between him and younger Britney, right? Rough roads ahead are likely, but hopefully he’ll come out stronger like she did.

  46. j says:

    If they love GAWD so much why don’t they just marry him.

  47. Jennifer says:

    His caption reminds me of my ex when he has something to prove, rambling and sanctimonious and love bombing his next victim.

  48. liriel says:

    It’s not exactly classy, especially after Selena went through. Is it a payback? Baldwin and Bieber both look drunk/high so I highly suspect he’s clean. As for Hailey I believe Shawn didn’t want her enough. Hailey and Selena both were int Bieber. I truly believe it was a triangle. Baldwin waited longer and literally got the ring. I suspect it’s not the end of the story. I’ll give them.. have no clue..

  49. Blonde555 says:

    Lies lies lies. Selena is the love of his life and I agree with a PP that this is directed at Selena. Well it’ll be a Los Angeles /HW short marriage, have fun while the PR lasts.

  50. Shannon says:

    She always looks so dead-eyed to me, it’s hard for me to believe she’s a model. Anyway, I live in rural Kentucky and omg like, EVERYONE here talks like that at least half the time – well, maybe not EVERYONE but about 95%. I am a Christian, but that just drives me crazy when they talk like Bieber did in his announcement – it just sounds so pompous and fake to me.

  51. Jane says:

    I think the way he is acting and what he wrote has cursed the engagement/marriage with the kiss of death. Whenever I see couples on FB gush and use religion in their engagement announcement, they always break up.

  52. Anna says:

    Hillsong sucks. From wikipedia:
    “Hillsong’s stand on many topical issues in contemporary Christianity is in keeping with mainstream Pentecostalism opposing embryonic stem cell research and abortion on the basis that human life commences at conception.[20] Hillsong has also declared support for Creationism and Intelligent Design and believes this should be taught in schools.[21][22][23][24] It also believes that homosexuality is contrary to biblical teaching but emphasises that it does not condemn homosexuals.[25]“

  53. reg says:

    Hillsong is a cult, men are allowed to have mistresses from the church and wives are okay with it. She can go yachting in France and he can have parties with his mistresses a match made in cult heaven….

  54. SJhere says:

    After reading all the comments here, I wonder why filthy rich celebs get sucked into cults like Scientology or Hillsong. Take some of your $$ and enroll in higher education or travel to inform yourselves better.

    OTOH, the current Trump idiocy is setting USA on fire daily. I find I’m looking at more celeb news because I can’t take the political news.

  55. Yes Doubtful says:

    He’s too immature to handle marriage. All of this is just shade for Selena. “Love of my life”….riiiiight.
