Hailey Baldwin asked Shawn Mendes to be her boyfriend back in 2013

The pair confirmed their relationship at the Met Gala on Monday night.

Hailey Baldwin and Shawn Mendes stepped out for the first time arm-in-arm at the Met Gala on Monday night and everyone has been swooning for them ever since.

Yes, the pair were all sorts of adorable as they walked the red carpet together and made their relationship official.

However, it looks like this relationship has been a long time in the making.

Eagle-eyed fans did some digging only to find that Hailey first asked Shawn to be her boyfriend five years ago.

Yep, in 2013, Hailey made the first move with a tweet to the singer asking him to date her.

“Hey Shawn Mendes, let’s date so you can sing to me all day. I’m joking but not really,” she wrote online.

And it got Shawn’s attention.

The singer seemed totally star-struck to see Hailey’s name pop up in his notifications, tweeting:

“Just finding out now that Hailey Baldwin tweeted at me!”

And with that, romance blossomed. OK, not necessarily but just four years later and reports that the pair were dating started to appear online.

After months of speculation, the couple finally confirmed the rumours this week and now we’re all sorts of obsessed with them.
