In case you haven't heard, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged (opens in new tab). TMZ (opens in new tab) first reported news of the engagement on July 8, the day after Justin popped the question in front of fans at a restaurant in the Bahamas.
Justin confirmed the engagement (opens in new tab) himself on Instagram this week and Hailey hasn't been shy about showing off her engagement ring (opens in new tab) now that the news is out. Speaking of that rock, TMZ now has details about the ring's backstory.
The website spoke to Jack Solow, the owner of Solow & Co., who said Justin reached out about buying a ring a few weeks ago after connecting with Solow through his manager, Scooter Braun. The ring Justin ended up going with was an elongated, oval-shaped diamond that's said to be between 6 and 10 carats with an estimated value (opens in new tab) of half a million dollars.
TMZ (opens in new tab) reports that Solow met Justin at his hotel in New York City to deliver the ring personally just before Justin and Hailey left for the Bahamas.
Justin and Hailey have seemed nothing but happy—no, make that elated—about the engagement. In his Instagram post confirming the news, Justin wrote:

So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY.
