Throwback video shows Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin meeting for the first time
It feels like it wasn't that long ago that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were involved in an on-again-off-again relationship. Given how big both stars are, this was widely publicised, so a lot of fans were kept up to date on what was going on.
They initially began dating in 2010, then broke up in November 2012. Only a few weeks later, they reconciled, before splitting up in January 2013. However - by 2017 it was revealed they had gotten back together... for it all to fall apart again in March. I can't say it's been the easiest relationship to follow, but regardless, by July Bieber has moved onto someone new.
We now know that Bieber has started a new relationship with model and TV personality Hailey Baldwin, but things have seemed to escalate pretty fast. While many of Selena and Bieber's fans are hoping for the couple to get back together, it looks like that's not going to be happening - because he's reportedly gotten engaged to his new girlfriend.
A source close to the singer has allegedly confirmed that the couple got engaged over the weekend, following the speculation that the couple had reunited after a breakup in 2016 (man, this guy's relationship history gets confusing). In a previous interview, Hailey Baldwin showed that they tried to make it as friends - but this hasn't appeared to work.
"We didn't speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on ... But it brought both of us to the realisation that we just work much better as friends," Baldwin previously stated. "He's somebody I really cherish. Now it's a very mature situation. It's good."
In addition to this, many fans were pretty enraged at the issue, believing that they have some kind of insight into strangers' personal lives. "Kinda disappointed that Justin Bieber and Hailey are engaged, my Jelena heart is crying," Twitter-user Shawn Mendes stated. "I was almost positive that Selena and Justin were going to be one of those couples that randomly get back together and get married," while someone called Carly wrote "Retweet if you feel personally victimised by Justin Bieber’s engagement to someone that isn’t Selena Gomez."
Now that Hailey and Justin are apparently together, this throwback video has started to make the rounds, showing the pair on the red carpet all the way back in 2009 - when they both looked approximately 5 years old (Justin was actually 15, Hailey was 13). The video shows Hailey's father (actor Stephen Baldwin) introduce the pair, telling the pop star how much they've both been enjoying his music.
Hailey looks as nervous and awkward as most girls her age would have felt in this situation, especially with cameras inches away. Neither of them would've known that just under ten years later they would be getting engaged. Not every celebrity has the news of engagement leak, however, as Cardi B proved when she got married without any of us knowing...
