Engagements: Justin Bieber & Hailey Badwin
“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” Are the words given to us by Nora Ephron, screenwriter, and producer of When Harry Met Sally. This seems like words of wisdom many young celebrities might be taking to heart, especially within the past few months; by now the news of Ariana Grande’s engagement to Pete Davidson had spread like wildfire, but another young celebrity couple seems to have chosen to start a new chapter together. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.
Reports from friends and family alike of the young couple’s engagement while on a trip to the Bahama’s this week; everything from Baldwin’s father saying ‘#bestisyettocome, congrats!’ in a now-deleted tweet, to Bieber’s parents separately posting about how proud they are of their son. While these young singers have been getting quite a lot of flak for their ‘rushed’ engagements, their manager, Scooter Braun, has been under some scrutiny by fans. Many believe he planned the two pairs engagements to stir up some publicity, but Grande quickly shut these rumors down in a tweeted response: “You do realize we are human being who love and have lives.. right? And that Scooter is a wonderful human being too who cares first n foremost [about] our health and happiness?”.
These are not the first instances in Hollywood where celebs have gotten engaged quickly: Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Austin Green and Meghan Fox, Orlando Bloom, and Britney Spears are just a few who got engaged to their respective beau’s in less than 12 months of dating. While not all marriages may last a lifetime as some might hope they would, we wish the best for these young stars as they take these big steps into new chapters of their lives.
