Another whirlwind Hollywood romance culminated in a fast engagement on Saturday night as Justin Bieber proposed to Hailey Baldwin during a trip to the Bahamas. But nobody prepared his legions of Beliebers, who immediately blew up Twitter in shock and anguish.
It all went down at a restaurant on the resort the couple were staying at Saturday night. Everyone was salsa dancing when the pop star got down on one knee in front of the entire restaurant, as reported by TMZ.
Bieber's dad, Jeremy, seemingly confirmed the big news on his Instagram Sunday. "Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter," he wrote in a caption tagging his son.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Bieber and Baldwin's engagement comes weeks after Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson decided to put a ring on it, too.
It may all be fun in the sun for Bieber and Baldwin as they celebrate their engagement in the Bahamas, but the news came as quite a shock to the Twittersphere, catapulting Bieber's name toward the top of the trending topics list as his fans tried to figure out what they did wrong. How can he be getting married when they've been waiting for him since they were 12 years old?
Sure, there are the usual congratulations, and a few funny memes sprinkled along the way, but the overwhelming response seems to be this sense of dismay from those fans who grew up with him and fell madly in love with him during their adolescence. Now, they're all grown up and ready to make an honest man out of him and he goes and gets engaged to someone else?!
Okay, clearly these fans are being pretty tongue-in-cheek about the whole thing, but it's still entertaining seeing their faux anguish as they wonder what Baldwin has that they don't. We've gathered some of their best responses below. Just imagine hearing a stadium filled with screaming and crying Bieber fans circa 2010 and that's Twitter today.
"That Should Be Me"

Justin Bieber is engaged to Hailey Baldwin and I have never been so sad in my entire life... did she know every word to every song? did she go to his concert by herself? did she buy all purple clothes because he said it was his favorite color? did she even watch never say never
Shocked and offended to hear about Justin Bieber's engagement.... Hailey Baldwin may be beautiful and insta famous, but did SHE buy a bright purple Juicy Couture hoodie in 2010 to celebrate the release of Never Say Never??? I think not
