Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have a lot in common with Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. The most notable similarity between the two couples? They both recently got engaged after only a few short weeks-months of dating. That said, while Ariana and Pete spent a good amount of their courtship and early engagement swapping sweetly sappy comments on each other's Instagram posts (they've since backed away from their e-PDA habits), Hailey and Justin have forgone Insta-flirting in favor of IRL flirting — namely, by making out all over New York City. But over the weekend, Hailey tried her hand at cyber-flirting, and we have a feeling Ari and Pete would approve of her attempt.
Hailey's online PDA was sparked by a photo posted by pal Nathan Finochio on Instagram on Friday. The photo, taken from behind, shows Nathan sitting next to Justin in NYC's Barclays Center, both wearing baseball caps over their matching shoulder-length blond 'dos. As eagle-eyed IG account Comments By Celebs noted, Hailey soon commented on the pic, "Idk who the boy on the right is but he looks FINE from the back 😍." Your move, Justin.
That's one of only a few times Hailey has made her relationship social media official since she and Justin started dating (again) in June. In early July, while Justin took to Instagram to confirm their engagement, Hailey instead penned a sweet message on Twitter, writing, "Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude." In fact, the only photo of Justin on Hailey's Insta grid is one she posted a few days after that tweet, a captionless shot of her and Justin both looking away from the camera while boarding a private jet.
Justin, meanwhile, has been a little bit more effusive on the photo-sharing platform. Besides the loved-up shot he posted to confirm that he had, indeed, popped the question, he's also posted and deleted a cute video of a young Hailey singing a Rihanna song, plus a few shots of him and his fiancée in a hot tub, and also commented "Dats mine" on one of Hailey's recent uploads, all of which has, apparently, inspired Hailey to step up her own online PDA.
