If you only casually follow the details of the Biebs's personal life, his July 2018 engagement to Hailey Baldwin might seem like it came out of nowhere. Bieber's on-again, off-again loves - including, perhaps most famously, Selena Gomez - have caused no end of tabloid buzz over the years. In reality, however, Bieber and Baldwin knew each for several years before their engagement, and dated off and on throughout that time. Where did Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin meet? What has their life as a couple been like? What do we know about their engagement?
Bieber is a pop music luminary, a onetime megastar teen idol of the highest order. Baldwin is a model, TV host, and member of Hollywood royalty - the daughter of Baldwin brother Stephen and his wife Kennya Deodato. Bieber and Baldwin are young and in love, and no matter what happens in the course of their relationship, their engagement will forever be a reminder of the impetuousness of youth and the bliss of new love. It will also be a reminder of the moment that every single Belieber's heart simultaneously shattered.
