Relax, People — Shawn Mendes & Hailey Baldwin are NOT Engaged

By  | 

Despite what people across the Internet are thinking, Shawn Mendes & Hailey Baldwin are NOT engaged. *breathes a sigh of relief* People always seem to jump to the conclusion that a celebrity’s engaged because she was spotted wearing a ring on THAT finger, but that’s not always the case. Nevertheless, the supermodel became the center of engagement buzz after she was caught sporting a diamond piece on New Year’s Day in Miami:

According to TMZ, people close to the 21-year-old beauty deny that that particular piece of jewelry is an engagement ring. “Apparently, Shawn doesn’t work THAT quickly,” the site boasts.

In fact, the two weren’t even close during their respective New Year’s celebrations. The 19-year-old “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” singer was in Hollywood, CA during Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest and, as previously mentioned, Hailey was all the way across the country in Miami, FL… with Jack & Jack‘s Jack Gilinsky!

“I ran into him with other friends on the beach and said hey,” she wrote in a comment on Instagram. Hmm… we wonder if those “other friends” include her former flame, Cameron Dallas, ’cause he was spotted with Jack the same weekend.

BUT, just because Shawn & Hailey aren’t engaged doesn’t mean they aren’t dating. We know he said he’s single in November, even though they were spotted holding hands after a Halloween party, but a month later they were caught getting cozy at a concert and packed on the PDA in his hometown of Toronto right before Christmas. We’re not sure what’s ~holdin’ them back~ from admitting that they’re something… but, hey, whatever works.
