Justin Bieber, 24, and Hailey Baldwin, 21, got engaged two months ago and since then they have made it clear that they are in it for the long haul. The two have shared numerous pics on Instagram that show their relationship is not just about the glitz and glam.
Baldwin refers to Bieber as her “absolute best friend” and Bieber has written “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.”
In a recent interview with Australian magazine Stellar, Baldwin said, "I'm beyond excited," regarding her engagement to the pop star. Adding that she has shrugged off the criticisms. "I don’t think it’s affected me really. I have learned to just try my best to ignore the negativity at this time so that I can enjoy this season of my life."
The interview is the first time the model has addressed her engagement to Bieber, aside from confirming the news in a tweet on July 9, when she wrote, "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."
Although there’s no date set, there’s speculation that the wedding could take place next year. One thing the couple shares is a deeply religious upbringing. Bieber was raised Christian and has said that he often speaks to God through prayer, adding, "he's the reason I'm here."
Meanwhile, Baldwin’s dad, Stephen Baldwin, raised her as an Evangelical Christian. She has said, “I think that God kind of put me in the place in my life to not be quiet about it, not be quiet about Him, but to reach people and to inspire people.”
As for Bieber's eternally on-again, off-again relationship with Selena Gomez, the couple, also known as Jelena, seems to have definitely moved on. Gomez dated The Weeknd from January until October of last year.
In May, Gomez told The Times UK, "Justin and I were friends for a long time. 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."
For now, Jelena is a thing of the past. The future seems to be all about Jailey? Bailey?
