Justin Bieber is all about tradition!
Before getting down on one knee to propose to Hailey Baldwin over the weekend, the 24-year-old singer reached out to his now-fiancee’s father, Stephen Baldwin, for her hand in marriage, a source tells ET.
“Justin wanted to respect tradition, so a couple weeks ago, while him and Hailey were visiting New York, Justin set aside some time to talk with Stephen,” the source says. “Justin and Stephen have always had a close relationship, and Justin wanted to show his future father-in-law how serious he is about his future with Hailey.”
“Stephen is a minister, so Justin knew it was important to Stephen that the two have a conversation before he proposed to Hailey,” the source adds. “Justin and Stephen talked about relationships, sacrifice and religion, and ultimately Stephen gave Justin his blessing to propose to Hailey. Stephen is very happy for Justin and Hailey.”
