Shawn Mendes’ Reaction to Hailey Baldwin’s Engagement is SO Sweet

By  | 

If you needed more proof that Shawn Mendes is the sweetest celebrity in Hollywood and must be protected at all costs, look no further than how he reacted to Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber‘s engagement. Although his rumored ex-girlfriend deleted every single picture of him from her Instagram page less than a month ago, he chose to be the bigger man and reach out to say congratulations.

The “In My Blood” singer tells Dave Thornton of Australian panel show The Project that he shot the model a text as soon as he found out The Biebs proposed.

“I texted Hailey the day of, and I said congrats,” he explains. “That’s what it is. I think everybody wants there to be more — there’s not.”

Many other celebrities, like Millie Bobby Brown and Ashley Tisdale, publicly congratulated Hailz and The Biebs on their engagement, but clearly the 19-year-old didn’t feel the need to put his reaction out there on social media.

Shortly after Jailey got back together, the Canadian crooner sent his well-wishes.

“I think that’s awesome,” he said of the rekindled romance. “I love them both. They’re both really awesome people. When I first started out, everybody was like, ‘Oh, how do you feel about being compared to Justin?’ I was like, ‘What do you mean, how do I feel?’ That’s the best thing anyone could say to me. He’s the man.”

Honestly, we have no idea why the 21-year-old deleted her pics with the teenager from Instagram when she got back together with The Biebs. Sure, she was romantically linked to him for months, but they both denied being anything other than friends. V weird, but Shawn is clearly too sweet and perfect to care.
