For a little while, we were all convinced that Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin were a thing. So much so that even after they both continuously denied they were anything more than just friends, we were still hopeful. However, those hopes and dreams were crushed when the model was spotted getting cozy with ex Justin Bieber. By cozy, we mean they were seen full-fledged making out, which prompted everyone to believe the two have rekindled their on-again, off-again romance.

During an interview with ETALK, Shawn weighed in on the rumored new couple, telling the Canadian entertainment show that he thinks Hailey and Justin getting together is “awesome.” Though he doesn't know for sure whether they're officially dating or not, he fully supports their relationship.

“I love them both. They’re both really awesome people,” Shawn added. “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.”

No bad blood here! It turns out, we were all wrong about the nature of Hailey and Shawn's relationship. After their adorable appearance at the 2018 Met Gala, do you blame us?! Clearly, Hailey still wants Justin – and their recent PDA-filled dates together prove to us that they were never really over. Just last month, the model opened up about the “Sorry” singer, telling The Sunday Times that she and Justin stopped talking for a long period of time due to post-breakup awkwardness.

Justin and I were friends for a long time. I met him when I was really young and he was one of my best friends,” she said of their 2015 fling. “Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you're 18, 19. It was what it was.”

Now, it seems like they're giving their romantic relationship another try since Hailey and Justin have been spending a lot of time together in the last two weeks. The pair soaked up the sun together in Miami, as well as enjoyed a private dinner and evening out at LIV nightclub. Eyewitnesses also said they were “being very flirty and dancing on each other” while “holding hands.”

Then, the two pretty much confirmed their rumored romance by publicly locking lips at in Brooklyn over the weekend. TMZ even has a video to prove it! Watch below:

We'll always root for Justin and Selena Gomez to be together, but Justin and Hailey are a pretty shippable couple, too. They also have TONS of history which is why we're not surprised they've started up again. Just like Shawn, we totally give these two our stamp of approval!
