Who says you have to date for years before getting a ring? Wonderwall.com is taking a look at celebrities who decided to skip the traditional long dating period and go straight into an engagement, starting with these two lovebirds. Barely a month after rekindling their old, casual romance, Justin Bieber proposed to model Hailey Baldwin on July 7, 2018, in the Bahamas, TMZ reported. Eyewitnesses revealed that the music star popped the question at an island resort while patrons at one of the property's restaurants looked on. "It's kind of a surprise, but kind of not. Justin has been extremely happy these past few weeks," a source told People magazine. "He has known Hailey for a long time. This might seem sudden, but they know each other very well." Justin and Hailey previously, though briefly, dated in 2015 and 2016. They then eloped at a New York City courthouse in September 2018. Keep reading to see which other stars had quick engagements…
