While eye witnesses to the proposal and the couple's parents confirmed the news, Justin and Hailey remained tight-lipped - until now.

Justin, 24, confirmed the engagement in a lengthy, heartfelt  Instagram post on Monday alongside two loved-up black and white snaps of him and his fiancée.

The Love Yourself hitmaker confesses his love for Hailey, 21, in the post and promises to put her first, calling her the love of his life.

"Hailey, I am so 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. I promise to lead our family with honour and integrity, letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make."

Justin adds that the thing he is most excited about is being able to show his younger siblings "another healthy stable marriage". 

He goes on to share the significance of the date they got engaged - which was on Saturday, 7 July - noting that "the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection."
