No, Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin Are Not Engaged

A Photo of Hailey's Ring Finger Sparked Rumors About an Engagement

January 3, 2018

Sometimes rumors can get a little out of hand, and this definitely sounds like one of those situations to us.

Shawn Mendes, 19, has been spotted spending a lot of time with Hailey Baldwin (the 21-year-old daughter of Stephen Baldwin) in recent weeks.

In fact, during the holidays we saw several photos of the couple getting cozy around Toronto. TMZ has the photos of the "couple" sharing a little PDA here

Neither reps for Shawn nor Hailey have commented on the relationship rumors, but the internet hit a frenzy this week after Hailey was spotted wearing a ring. The photos, which were taken on New Year's Day in Miami, show Hailey wearing some bling on her ring finger. You can see the photo of Hailey's ring finger on TMZ.com.

The internet rumor mill is speculating that this ring means the pair actually got engaged, but we tend to err on the assumption that it's just a ring on her finger. In fact, TMZ says that their sources who are connected to Hailey are denying that it is an engagement ring. 

Come on, rumor mill! Can't a girl wear a little jewelry without the world making an assumption about her relationship?
