Justin Bieber confirms engagement with emotional message to Hailey Baldwin

Justin Bieber confirms engagement with emotional message to Hailey Baldwin

For all intents and purposes, 2018 has not been the best year for love. Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloé Kardashian; Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux called it quits on their two year marriage, and back in April, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced that they were separating after almost 12 years of being together.

But while love seemed to be well and truly over, there have been a few shining beacons of hope. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their second child, Miles, in May, and after a whirlwind romance to end all whirlwind romances, Ariana Grande got engaged to Pete Davidson, thereby making "big d*ck energy" the viral catchphrase of 2018.

Now, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have officially confirmed their engagement, and goodness, we really want to know what Selena Gomez thinks about it all...

Justin Bieber announced his engagement to model Hailey Baldwin yesterday, after reports emerged that he proposed while the couple were vacationing in the Bahamas.

Taking to Instagram, the 24-year-old revealed in a lengthy post that he was engaged to the "love of his life".

"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," he stated. "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 eachother 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!!!!"

And this morning, Baldwin confirmed the engagement on Twitter.

"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," the 21-year-old wrote.

Well, in a year of celebrity breakups and whirlwind romances, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber certainly take the cake for the most unexpected-expected coupling.
