After a whirlwind romance, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are reportedly engaged. Both of their fathers posted cryptic messages which provide insight.
Two eyewitnesses claimed they saw the engagement happen at a resort in the Bahamas. According to them, everyone was salsa dancing when Bieber’s security asked them to put their phones aside. They said Justin then proposed in front of everyone at the venue.
Another source told TMZ that the couple are in fact engaged. To further solidify the rumors, Justin’s dad Jeremy simply tweeted out, “The proudest” earlier today.
Fans took to the replies to assert that the cryptic tweet had to do with Justin and Hailey.

We spend a lot of time together.” He also said, “I don’t want to put anyone in a position where they feel like I’m only theirs, only to be hurt in the end. Right now in my life, I don’t want to be held down by anything. I already have a lot that I have to commit to. A lot of responsibilities. I don’t want to feel like the girl I love is an added responsibility. I know that in the past I’ve hurt people and said things that I didn’t mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I’m just more so looking at the future, making sure I’m not damaging them. 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.”

It was what it was. We went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends. We didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on. We’ve moved past that.”
