Justin Bieber

E! News -- Yes, they did! Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin recently got engaged during a trip to the Bahamas after a whirlwind rekindled romance, E! News confirmed on Sunday, following reports.

The 24-year-old singer and 21-year-old model and daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin have not commented.

"They are engaged and it happened Saturday night in front of a crowd in Baker's Bay," a source told E! News exclusively. "Justin made arrangements for the ring when they were in NYC and knew that he wanted to propose to her. It was a sudden decision but Justin always knew Hailey and him had a special bond that was incomparable."

"The proposal was a very happy moment and Hailey was taken off guard," the source said. "Her face was in shock but you could tell they are both so in love."

Another source told E! News, "They are engaged. It happened while on vacation at Baker's Bay. They flew in from New York on the 6th and have been having the time of their lives. Justin is happier than ever and wants to be with Hailey. His family is very supportive and know he has been at his best lately. Everyone is very happy for him."

Justin and Hailey first sparked romance rumors three years ago and had been linked together on and off since then. They most recently rekindled their relationship several weeks ago, taking trips together to Miami and New York City. They were last spotted in the latter city again last week, holding hands. Last month, Justin and Hailey also packed on the PDA in Los Angeles, where he was seen carrying her around a music video set.

"Ever since they reunited, they have been inseparable and Justin knows he can't live without Hailey," the first source told E! News. "Justin and Hailey had talked about marriage before but Hailey didn't think it would happen so quickly. A few of their friends know from Facetiming them."

Their families have not responded publicly and directly to their engagement.

"Love Love Love Love Love Love Love," Justin's mother, Pattie Mallette, tweeted on Saturday.

Hailey's dad tweeted on Sunday a Biblical passage, writing, "#blessed."

Justin and Hailey have never commented on their rekindled romance.

The engagement comes two weeks after Hailey purged her Instagram account of photos of Shawn Mendes, to whom she had been linked romantically over the past few months.

"I don't know if they're dating or not," Mendes later said on eTalk Canada, when asked about Bieber and Baldwin. "I love them both. They're both really awesome people."

Anna Nicole Smith's longtime Lawyer/companion Howard K. Stern is on the verge of losing the Bahamian home he shared with the tragic model. He recently learned an eviction summons has been requested. Attorney Godfrey Pinder is requesting Nassau officials evict Stern from the Horizons house he has occupied since August. The Bahamian lawyer is acting on the request of his client, developer G. Ben Thompson, who insists he offered his house when Anna Nicole was looking for property in the Bahamas. The request, filed on Wednesday, states Stern has been "trespassing" on Thompson's property since before February 8, 2007 -- the day Smith died. Pinder has told " Access Hollywood ," "I served a summons asking the Magistrate's court to give us an eviction notice against Howard K. Stern and to have him pay rent and legal costs and damages, if there are any damages in the place." Pinder claims Thompson bought the house and had his lawyers draw up the papers for it in Anna Nicole's name -- because she planned to buy it from him. Thompson maintains his friend then declined to sign the mortgage or promissory note. Pinder attempted to serve Stern with the notice at the property on Wednesday, but was forced to leave it at the entry gate.

Anna Nicole Smith really left a mess

The father of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter will be revealed soon. A DNA test to determine five-month-old Dannielynn's father was ordered bythe Bahamas Supreme Court yesterday. Anna Nicole's former lover photographer Larry Birkhead, who claims he is Dannielynn's father, was overjoyed by the ruling. Birkhead, who pumped his fists in the air and jumped up and down as he emerged from court, said: "I feel great. It was a great day in court for me. Bahamian people, thank you so much!"Asked if he thought he would see Dannielynn soon, he smiled and winked. Anna Nicole's lover and lawyer Howard K. Stern - who is listed as Dannielynn's father on her birth certificate - was left devastated by the judge's decision. He said: "I'm doing the best I can."Stern, who is currently caring for Dannielynn, was ordered not to leave the Bahamas with her before the custody ruling. Frederic von Anhalt, the husband of legendary Hollywood beauty Zsa Zsa Gabor, also claims he could be Dannielynn's father. Dannielynn has been at the centre of a paternity battle since her mother collapsed in a Florida hotel room and died aged just 39 last month. She could inherit millions from the estate of Anna Nicole's late husband, oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall. Anna Nicole had been fighting his family for his estimated $500 million fortune since he died in 1995.

For Virgie Arthur The War Has Only Started

A Bahamian court considered a request to exhume the body of Daniel Smith, son of the late Anna Nicole Smith, for reburial in Texas, where Smith was born. The request was filed by Smith's estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, who reportedly has a letter from the son's father authorizing her to ask the Bahamian courts to order the body be exhumed and buried in Texas, the Bahama Journal said Monday. Arthur tried unsuccessfully to gain custody of Smith's body in a Florida court, then tried to block the funeral in a Bahamian court. She said she wants to bury Smith's body in Texas and has said she wanted to move the body of Smith's son, who died in September, to Texas as well. She filed the exhumation request Friday, the day Smith was buried. Smith died Feb. 8 of unknown causes in a Florida hospital where she was taken after being found unresponsive in her hotel room.

Anna Nicole Smith's mother is battling for custody of her five-month-year granddaughter. Last week, Virgie Arthur lost custody of her daughter's body but now plans to fight the late model's partner Howard K. Stern for custody of Dannielynn. A private hearing will take place in Nassau, in the Bahamas. Arthur and Stern - who is listed as the baby's father on the birth certificate - will also face Larry Birkhead who has failed a paternity claim. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Isaacs has banned Stern from taking Dannielynn away from the Bahamian island until a custody ruling has been made. Isaacs has also placed a gagging order against the attorneys from making anything said in the courtroom public. Last Thursday, custody of Anna Nicole's body was granted to Dannielynn's temporary court-appointed guardian, Richard C. Milstein. Milstein has said the former Playboy playmate should be buried in the Bahamas, next to her son Daniel, who died last September. Arthur had wanted her daughter to be laid to rest near their Texan family home. Despite the court decision being finalised last week, a funeral is still not expected to take place until tomorrow at the earliest, and Anna Nicole's body remains in a Florida morgue. Anna Nicole died on February 8 after being found unconscious in a Florida hotel room.
