When it came time for Justin Bieber to propose to short-time girlfriend Hailey Baldwin, he wanted to make sure he did it the traditional way, so he reportedly asked Hailey's father Stephen for permission first.
Obviously, based on the ginormous engagement ring Hailey's been wearing around NYC, he obliged. "Stephen was thrilled to give his permission," a source told E! News.
Hailey's dad was actually the one who introduced the two in 2009. For a cringey video of that interaction, step right this way. He also took her to the premiere of Justin's Never Say Never movie in 2011, and they posed with the singer on the red carpet.
The future happy fam! Cute! Very 2011. Plus, Stephen tweeted right after the proposal about how "blessed" he and his family are.
AND! In a now-deleted tweet, Stephen wrote that he and his wife "Always pray 4 Gods will !! He is moving in the hearts of JB&HB Let's all pray for His will to be done...Love you 2 so much !!!"
So, in simple terms, the senior Baldwin is extremely pumped about his daughter marrying the kid who not once, but multiple times posted bare pictures of his ass on Instagram. Case in point:
Although their engagement was super quick, a source told People that Justin is very committed to Hailey. "This is not a joke to him. He proposed because he truly feels Hailey is the love of his life,” the source said. “He had a rough time last year, but he worked very hard to change and find more meaning in his life. Hailey couldn’t make him happier.”
