Over the weekend the news broke that Justin Bieber popped the question to Hailey Baldwin, and according to insiders, Selena Gomez is “totally shocked and stunned.” Does Bieber’s quick proposal mean that he didn’t really love Gomez?
According to two eyewitnesses – after dating for just a few weeks – Bieber proposed to Baldwin at a restaurant in the Bahamas, and Gomez “honestly can’t believe it.”
“Selena didn’t think they were even that serious, so the thought of them getting married is just mind-boggling to her,” says an insider.

It looks like dating for a short time and getting engaged is a new trend in Hollywood. In addition to Bieber and Baldwin’s whirlwind romance, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson announced their engagement less than a month after they started dating.
Bieber dated Gomez on and off for years, and they just broke up in March. Now, the Wolves singer can’t help but feel that her ex may have an ulterior motive. Could he be trying to make her jealous or trying to prove that he has finally grown up and is ready for commitment?
OK! Magazine is reporting that if Bieber and Baldwin’s engagement is genuine, Gomez can’t get her mind around it, and it makes her wonder if Bieber’s feelings for her were real. It was just a few short months ago that the Sorry singer was saying he couldn’t live without Gomez and declaring his love for her, says an inside source.

It looks like things would be different if it weren’t for Gomez’s mother, Mandy Teefey, interfering with their relationship. The insider says that we could just as easily be talking about an engagement between Gomez and Bieber if her family didn’t push back.
But, Bieber didn’t want to deal with Teefey’s disapproval, and that was the final straw in their relationship. So, he moved on and found love somewhere else.
As for Bieber and Baldwin, they have just made their engagement Instagram official, and he was seen wearing a massive diamond ring on her finger. And, both of their dads talked about the big news on social media.
