A source with "direct knowledge" told the site that Justin and Hailey "feel like they've already made the commitment, and that's the most important thing."
As previously reported, the couple got engaged in July after only a few weeks of dating. However, a second source told TMZ that the "No Brainer" singer and the model's engagement was actually a long time coming.
"Justin's been in love with her for a long time, so this didn't just come from out of the blue," said the insider. The couple who also dated back in 2015, were reportedly together "a number of times -- times the public doesn't know about" over the years.
The insider even claimed that when Justin got back with Selena Gomez earlier this year, "Hailey was on the brain."
Justin proposed to Hailey while the two were vacationing in the Bahamas last month. He confirmed the news with an Instagram post, writing, "Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY."
He added, "My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first!" You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment each other so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!."
