We love love—even better if we’re talking about the rich, famous people type of love. These new celeb couples have been some of the few bright spots in the tire fire that has been 2018 thus far. From Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind engagement and (predictable) breakup to Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp getting caught smooching, this year has basically been like a series of quirky rom-coms—and we have loved every minute. (Of course, like any rom-com, some of these couplings weren’t meant to last the year—or even the month—but we’ll #neverforget.)
2018 has so far been the year of surprises, surprise couples, that is. From Elon Musk and Grimes making their MET Gala debut to finding out Ariana Grande has a thing for funny men, the new year isn’t holding back. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the newest pairings (and some old ones). As the saying goes, ’New Year, New Boo?”
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
Okay friends, I think it’s safe to say that Jelena is officially over #RIP, because The Biebs is seriously on to the next. Just months after taking Selena as his +1 to his dad’s beachside wedding in Jamaica, JB has pulled a *true* Ari and Pete: rekindling, dating and proposing to one-time love Hailey Baldwin (who made her super confusing couple-debut with Shawn Mendes at the Met Gala, like yesterday) in just under 30 days. The pair previously dated in late 2015 before breaking up in early 2016. Of their relationship since, Baldwin, 21, told the Times UK in May 2018 that they went through a “long period” post-breakup where they weren’t friends and there was “a lot of weirdness that went on.”
Despite the “weirdness,” the couple were spotted looking oh-so-loved up in June of this year, taking a dip, trolling the paps and making out in NYC parks all in a matter of weeks. But if you were thinking this was just a summertime fling (or a serious attempt to make Selena jealous), the Biebs surprised us all by a) keeping that horrid moustache and b) popping the question while the pair were on vacay in the Bahamas. The 24-year-old singer quickly confirmed the news on Insta, posting a *seriously* cute photo of the pair with an equally as cute caption that read in part: “Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you!” the popstar wrote. “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else.”
Baldwin repsonded to the news on Twitter later the same day: “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!” she wrote. “No words could ever express my gratitude.”
No word yet on when we can expect to hear wedding bells, we have a feeling the Biebs is going to want some time to have a particular piece of ink removed, before he walks down the aisle.
