And Bieber’s mother Pattie Mallette also referenced her son’s engagement on Twitter Sunday, writing, “Love Love Love Love Love Love Love.”
Locals spotted Bieber and Baldwin dancing at a restaurant on Friday, and the next day the couple was spotted packing on the PDA on early Saturday afternoon.
In the past few weeks since reigniting their romance, Bieber and Baldwin have been showing off their romance all over the Big Apple. In early July, they were seen locking lips during a stroll through a local Brooklyn garden after grabbing lunch at DUMBO House, according to an onlooker. Bieber was also pictured giving Baldwin a sweet smooch on the forehead.
“Right now, Justin is very happy with Hailey,” a source recently told PEOPLE. “He always had a lot of love for her.”
Bieber and Baldwin previously dated before they split in 2016.
After calling it quits, “we went through a long period of time when we weren’t friends,” Baldwin recently told U.K. newspaper The Times.
That same year, Bieber told GQ that he didn’t want to “rush into anything” in case the pair ended up getting married someday.
“What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged. It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. It’s so hard … I just don’t want to hurt her.” he told the magazine.
