Things are clearly getting serious.

They've been keeping it on the DL for a while, but it appears Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are ready to share their burgeoning relationship with the Instagram masses ... all 100 million of them.

Justin and Hailey were photographed kissing in Brooklyn last week, prompting fans to speculate they had rekindled their brief 2016 romance.

Now, Justin has stoked the rumour flames by sharing a split-second glimpse of Hailey to his Instagram story. We see you, girl.

On Sunday, the 24-year-old singer posted a brief video of him with his head resting on a table which panned over to show Hailey seated next to him. Far from being camera shy, the 21-year-old model could be seen happily sticking her tongue out for Justin's 100 million Instagram followers.

A week ago, Justin also posted a shot on Instagram showing him crouching next to a woman many speculated was Hailey, but this latest video is far more definitive evidence the model and singer are an item.

Both Baldwin and Bieber are getting hot and heavy pretty soon after exiting relationships. Bieber split with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez in March this year after the pair briefly reunited.

Baldwin, meanwhile, appeared to be casually dating singer Shawn Mendes up until recently, even taking him as her date to this year's Met Gala. On that note, has someone checked on Shawn? You okay, buddy?

This isn't Bieber and Baldwin's first dip in the love pool – the longtime friends were first linked all the way back in 2014, after Bieber's first split from Selena Gomez. They confirmed their relationship with a PDA-filled Caribbean holiday in 2016 but sadly that romance was short-lived and they parted ways only a few months later.

Now it seems they're ready to try again, but Baldwin may have to contend with the wrath of Selena super-fans first. Godspeed, Hails.
