Gone are the days when the world was rooting for the Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez romance. While their romance became famous and started grabbing headlines everywhere, there split became rather infamous. Both the stars have moved on in their lives and the good news is something we all know. The 24 your old singer Justin Bieber is now engaged to his long time friend Hailey Baldwin. While for most people the engagement was a surprise, their fans are really happy for them too. The two are still making headlines and defining couple goals. For all of you who are rooting for this couple, we have compiled all their moments together and guess what we have? An entire timeline of their romance. So, here is how it all happened.
The details about their first meeting are still vague and are not clear to most of us. But there is quite an old video that has surface on the Internet that shows the two meeting at an event back in 2009. Hailey Baldwin was just 14 back then and she was with her father Stephen at the event while Justin Bieber was already the pop sensation that he is. Most people believe that this was the first time when the two were introduced.
February 2, 2011
We did not hear much about the couple for the next couple of years. That was until February 2, 2011 when Hailey and her dad Stephen again came together to attend the New York /city premiere of Never Say Never, which was Justin’s 3D film. The film premiere took place at the Regal E-walk 13 stadium that is at Times Square.
Next boys the infamous split of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. While the world was still shedding tears about the break up, Justin started spending a lot of time with Hailey. By then the two of them had become pretty great friends and nobody raised an eyebrow at their friendship.
Right after the break up when the couple started spending so much time together, E! News had an interview with Hailey where they chatted for a while at the premiere of Exodus in NYC. There Hailey was asked about her equation with Justin and she rubbished all rumours of them dating. She said “I’ve known him since I was so young—since I was like 13—and we’ve just been good friends over the years. We have just stayed close and there’s nothing more to it than that.”
A few days later on December 15, 2014 this time it Wa Justin himself who shut down all the dating rumours. He took to Instagram to share a post where he wrote “People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise.”
Later that year on New Year’s eve, guess who Justin started the new year with? No prizes for guessing it was Hailey Baldwin.
April 23, 2015
A paparazzi website published a report that Justin had invited his little sister Jazmyn and a couple of his best friends at the Duff’s Cakemix Bakery and Studio to decorate cakes. Any guesses who these best friends were? It was Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin!
April 25, 2015
This was a fun day in the timeline of their relationship. Justin and Hailey together crashed a high school prom (OMG yasss!) They crashed the prom at Charter High School and till date there have been enough evidences to prove this. Firstly, Hailey herself tweeted that “I found a prom and @gabbywestbrook was my prom date.”
The, the school itself tweeted from its official account “Justin Bieber showing up at our prom? I think we know who had the best prom this year.”
This was such a sweet act. Wish we had someone as sweet as Justin to gatecrash a high school prom. Sigh!
A couple of months passed by and the world got a glimpse of the twop again. This time they were hanging out by a poolside in Miami. Again a couple of days later, the two were spotted going on a walk in Beverly Hills.
The highlight of this year was their year-end tropical vacation. Justin Bieber went on this vacation with his dad, his two sisters and soon-to-be girlfriend Hailey. Such a perfect family picture this is. Major awww!
January 3, 2016
This year began with a bang for the couple and looked like a lot happened at the vacation they took to the Caribbean islands. Justin posted a few pictures and they were proof enough to see that the duo had started dating. Just look at these pictures. HAWT!
February 10, 2016
This is when Justin really started talking about his relationship with Hailey, even though he did not give any tags. In an interview to GQ, he said “she’s someone I really love. We spend a lot of time together.” Now, this might seem a normal byte but do you know what was so unique about this interview? The fact that for a brief portion of this interview, Hailey was present by Justin’s side when the interview took place in the suit of a hotel.
Further he 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.”
Just so on point and so cute.
February 10, 2016
Exactly a month after Justin’s interview to GQ, E! News caught up with Hailey and she spoke about Justin’s excerpt at the interview. She said “I think it’s awesome. It wasn’t a surprise to me. I knew it was coming out.” While she gushed about how awesome it was for her that Justin spoke with so much love about the two of them, she also cleared the air about their relationship. She said, “We are not an exclusive couple. He’s about to go on tour. Relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don’t really like to talk about it because it’s between me and him.”
April 10, 2016
This time the speculations about the rumoured couple got even stronger when Hailey spoke to the third-annual May Fresh Faces issue of Marie Claire, when she talked about her experience of dating someone famous. Fans assumed she was talking about Bieber and went berserk. In the interview, she said “I don’t want attention out of dating somebody. Texts started coming through, crazy phone calls…it’s hard to date somebody in this industry. You have to have really thick skin and be very strong. You have to focus on the person and nothing else.”
Then, just a couple of days later, she again defended her comments at the above interview. She said, “What I said in Marie Claire about dating is what my view on dating in the industry is in general. It wasn’t anything specific. That’s an opinion of mine that’s never going to change. It is difficult to date anybody at this age, in general, especially in the industry, but it wasn’t a specific answer. It was just my general take on it.”
May 27, 2018
On this day, Hailey Baldwin actually opened up and spoke at length about her relationship with Justin in a really long time. She said, “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. 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.”
In the weekend of June 9 to June 11, a lot happened between the couple. The two flew to Miami to attend the VOUS Church Conference. Over the weekend, they were spotted together at several places, having out by the pool, having dinner together, dancing at a nightclub. Sources said that they were not much into PDA but were literally inseparable throughout the stay. They dance really close and seemed quite comfortable in each other’s company. But according to the source itself, both of them were still single.
One of the sources said, “They both have two things in common; they love to party and they love their church organization. They have finally cleared the air and rekindled their friendship, and realized they genuinely have a lot of fun together. Justin and Hailey planned to attend the church organization together and decided to make a fun weekend out of it. They both are single, and were very flirty with each other the entire night. They were inseparable the entire weekend and this was planned between the two.”
June 12, 2018
The two left Miami after the brief weekend in a private jet. Later that night, they were spotted having dinner together in Brooklyn. The two were also walking together arm in arm, as it was spotted in a video, until a group of fans approached them. In this video, people found something strange. As Hailey was seen leaving, covering her face with her hands, fan noticed a diamond ring on her finger. Thereafter, speculations began that the two were secretly engaged.
June 16, 2018
The couple were spotted again a few days later in Brooklyn. This time they were found making out at Domino Park in Brooklyn. Since the couple never confirmed their relationship, this was huge for the fans. Some of them shot videos of the two making out and TMZ reported the incident. Later that night, the couple headed over to Rockefeller Park and kept making out there too. See this picture.
Over the next few days, the couple were spotted at various places, holding hands and walking together, going for dates, eating desserts. Justin also took to Instagram and posted a video to show how he and Hailey were hanging out together. This was again a big step in their relationship timeline. That’s because till now Hailey had only made partial appearances in his videos, in most of which she was cut out. This time she was fully featured in the video. That was the couple’s way of saying that they are together. So cute!
Again a couple of days later on June 24, 2018, the duo went on a trip together. But the trip was not in seclusion, not the one away from media glare and fans. In fact, they went to Washington together and were seen in a public hot tub, amongst hundreds of fans. Over the next few days, the couple kept going around America, engaging in occasional PDA and making fans go aww!
On July 18, 2018, fans went crazy as the reports of the couple being engaged started going really strong. TMZ reported with confidence that the two are engaged. According to TMZ, there were two eyewitnesses who saw the proposal at a resort in the Bahamas.
Fans did not have to wait long this time. The next day on July 9, 2018, Justin took to his Instagram where he announced to the world that he was indeed engaged to Hailey Baldwin. In a long post he wrote, “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 VE 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!!!!”
Not just Justin, but Hailey too confirmed the news on Twitter. She tweeted saying “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.”
So, there you go. That is the incredible journey of the duo. As they say, love always finds its way. We are so excited for the couple and wish them all the luck!
