Are Shawn & Hailey really that thirsty for each other?

Are Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin dating? Well, what happens when you put Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin in a room together? They start dating — we think! (#fingerscrossed) The stars seem to have aligned for this ridiculously attractive couple and rumors suggest that there is, in fact, truth the couple is dating. Earlier this week, Shawn Mendes took to Instagram on to share a photo of him and Hailey hanging out. Hailey is in a crop top and Shawn appears with his arms crossed in a black tee — and boy do they look comfy together! The duo first sparked dating rumors late last year after leaving a Halloween party together and earlier this year the rumors reignited when the two were spotted at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

According to multiple sources, the couple started mingling after running into each other at A-list celebrity parties and bumping into each other at trendy places around Hollywood. Over time, as their interest piqued, the two started spending time together one-on-one and boom, the Shawn Mendes Hailey Baldwin relationship was born! Let's look at the evidence, shall we?

1. Shawn posted a photo of him and Hailey — and a ton of celebs liked it. 

If Calvin Harris (Taylor's ex) is taking the time to like something on Instagram, it's probably true. Paris Jackson, Rita Ora, and Zedd all hit that 'like' button, too. As for Julia's WHO IS JULIE snide little "hmm" comment with a red heart emoji, we can read between the lines, sister! You know when other celebrities start to get involved on Instagram, the relationship is probably legit.

2. Hailey’s Tumblr is a gold mine of photos of her and Shawn.

On the same day Shawn shared his first picture of the couple on Instagram, Hailey took a subtler approach. The supermodel shared a few pics of Shawn behind the scenes of TBS' Drop the Mic. Hailey snapped some a couple of Shawn getting ready for his segment with James Cordon.

3. Shawn won’t reveal the last person he kissed.

Which sounds a little suspicious coming from the same guy who admitted when lost his virginity at age 16 on a public radio show segment. And yet when recently asked about who he's currently kissing, Shawn went mum. Hmmm...maybe Hailey values privacy more than we think? Or perhaps a gentleman doesn't kiss and tell?

4. Hailey's father has loose lips.

After the iHeartRadio Awards, The Hollywood Fix asked Hailey’s father, Stephen Baldwin (yep, Alec's brother) some burning questions about what he thinks about both Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes. “I love Justin,” he said. “I'm praying for him every day. He's wonderful.” When the reporters asked about his thoughts on Shawn, Baldwin pleaded the fifth. “Ut-oh. I thought I slipped around that one.” Oh, Stephen, don't try to play coy...

5. Hailey's close friend (and rumored ex) Justin Bieber and Shawn have a connection.

Back in 2015 — when Shawn was just a mere opener for Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour  a radio host asked Justin his thoughts of the new Canadian sensation. At the time, Justin, who's also Canadian, didn't know who Shawn was. But a couple days after the interview Justin posted a screenshot of one of Shawn’s hits on Instagram saying, “Shawn I checked out the music and I’m so proud! So glad to see another boy from Canada crushin it. #canadiansdoitbetter” If you recall, Hailey and Justin were briefly linked together in between Justin’s off-again-on-again romance with Selena Gomez. Did Justin introduce Hailey to Shawn or Shawn to Hailey? He's mum on the subject, but maybe Justin was the Yenta in this coupling.

6. He seems to be over his ex, Camilla Cabello. 

And it seems that the former lovers are now just really good friends. Earlier this year, Shawn explained in a radio interview that Cabello was the first person to hear his new song, “In My Blood.” It's so great to see that the exes harbor no grudges and as everyone knows, you can't move on to a new romance unless it's truly over with an ex, so this means the Hailey Baldwin coupling could for sure be happening.

Well, it certainly stars seem to be aligning for this young Hollywood couple.  With Hailey’s modeling career heating up more than ever and Shawn’s new album being released soon (maybe there's a song about Hailey?) we can only hope that the Shawn Mendes Hailey Baldwin relationship (#shailey?) is on, on, on.
