On Sunday, Jeremy shared a photo of Bieber on the beach, writing, "Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter."
Jeremy also tweeted, "The proudest."

The engagement was first reported by TMZ. An eyewitness claims to have seen the proposal at a resort in the Bahamas. Bieber's security reportedly told everyone at one of the resort's restaurants to put their phones away because Bieber was about to do something special.
“It’s kind of a surprise, but kind of not. Justin has been extremely happy these past few weeks. He has known Hailey for a long time. This might seem sudden, but they know each other very well," a source told PEOPLE.
Bieber and Baldwin, the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, rekindled their romance last month and have been inseparable ever since. Before heading off to the Bahamas, the two were seen kissing in New York City.
The couple were first seen together in Miami last month to attend the VOUS Church Conference together. They were also spotted at a nightclub.0comments
"Once he got to Miami, Justin and Hailey were together the entire time," a source told E! News. "They attended the VOUS Conference all day and then hung out together every night."
