Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged, plus more celeb love life updates for mid-July 2018

Wonderwall Logo By Jessica Wedemeyer of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 39: The mayor of Stratford, Ontario, is already vying to get its native son, Justin Bieber, to bring his wedding to the Great White North. In the wake of the singer's engagement news this week, Stratford mayor Dan Mathieson reportedly told TMZ he's prepared to offer the Biebs and his fiancee, Hailey Baldwin, free tickets to a Stratford Warriors hockey game if they stage a winter wedding in the Biebs' hometown. Should Justin and Hailey agree to marry in Stratford in the summer, the mayor has apparently offered to sweeten the deal by giving Justin a gig at the town's annual Stratford Summer Music Festival (which, um, we're pretty sure he could get without the mayor's help). Finally, the mayor says he'd guarantee all wedding guests discounts on access to the "Steps to Stardom" Justin Bieber exhibit at the Stratford Perth Museum. Hailey and Justin's friends and family -- a list that ranges from Kendall Jenner to Usher to Ireland Baldwin -- can probably afford full price, but it's the thought that counts, right?

Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the celebrities who found love, suffered heartbreak or experienced some other major event in their love lives in mid-July 2018, starting with these two young lovebirds: Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin got engaged in the Bahamas on July 7, just weeks after they rekindled their off-and-on romance. The trouble-prone pop star reportedly popped the question at a restaurant at an island resort as other guests were salsa dancing. According to TMZ, "Justin's security told everyone to put their phones away because something special was about to happen." He then proposed in front of everyone. Both Justin's dad, Jeremy Bieber, and Hailey's father, Stephen Baldwin, seemingly confirmed the engagement news with congratulatory social media posts. On July 9, the "Sorry" singer confirmed that he and the "Drop the Mic" hostess are indeed engaged in a social media post of his own: "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 [sic] each other so well!! Can't wait for the best season of life yet!" he wrote in the lengthy caption accompanying a slideshow of photos of himself and his future missus on Instagram. The next day, TMZ reported that Justin actually asked Stephen for permission to propose to Hailey "several weeks ago" during a face-to-face meeting. On July 11, The Blast added that when the newly engaged couple returned to New York City, they promptly went shopping for some companion pieces for the bride-to-be's massive engagement ring. Hailey reportedly bought Justin a ring with his initials encrusted in diamonds and a ring with "baby" spelled out in diamonds for herself. She also had her engagement ring resized and re-blinged, adding a few extra stones to the solitaire. The singer, meanwhile, snagged a 33-carat diamond-encrusted Patek Philippe watch for himself.
