How Shawn Mendes actually reacted to rumoured ex Hailey Baldwin's engagement to Justin Bieber

And it’s predictably sweet.

I think we can all agree Shawn Mendes is the sweetest boy to have ever lived. Like, we know he's Canadian and that's expected, but honestly, this kid goes above and beyond.

At 19-years-old, the teenager is achieving far more than we ever will and does it with a goddamn grin plastered on his face the whole time—obsessed.

ANYWAY, he's currently in Australia and while being interviewed on The Project last night, he revealed what actually happened when he found out his Met Gala date was engaged to Justin Bieber.

At the time, some reported Shawn's relationship with the pair had soured out of jealousy. People even went so far as to say Shawn and Justin were locked in a 'Canadian Feud', knowing full well Canadians don't feud.

But Shawn wasn't having any of it.

"I texted Hailey the day of, and I said congrats," he said. "That's what it is. I think everybody wants there to be more — there's not."

Which makes sense, he said himself: "I'm Canadian, I was born diplomatic."

Also, both Shawn and hailey have repeatedly said they weren't dating, that they attended the Met Gala as mates.

Sure, Hailey deleted all photos of him from her 'gram (suss), but she also got engaged after a month so who knows what's real in this crazy world?

Also, Shawn said Biebs was "a massive influence for me growing up" so, take that, rumour mill.
