Despite attending the Met Gala together, Shawn Mendes is staying tight lipped about his relationship status with Hailey Baldwin.

While chatting with W Magazine about his supermodel date, the In My Blood singer stayed coy about what his and Hailey’s red carpet debut REALLY meant. Hmmm, go on!!

The Canadian-born cutie noted:

“We’re really good friends. It’s funny, she’s such a pro with this type of stuff. I want it to be amazing for her, so I’ve been trying for the past 24 hours to be really silly so that she stays on. I’m happy to walk with her ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ she’s amazing.”

Awwww. Sounds like somebody’s smitten!! Not to mention, both the hitmaker and the celebuspawn took to Instagram to share sweet snaps from the high profile event. For example:

The pair are certainly close, as Shawn even admitted that Miz Baldwin was with him when he got the number eight tattooed on the inside of his middle finger.

Romance rumors first started swirling about Shawn and Hailey back in October, when the duo were spotted holding hands at a Halloween party. By December, they were caught cuddling during a holiday visit to Mendes’ hometown of Toronto.

While Hailey has repeatedly said that she likes to keep her private life private, it is transparent that Shawn has a fondness for her. Amid his conversation with the fashion mag, Mendes confessed that a song on his new album is for someone special:

“I wrote a song on the new album confessing my feelings for somebody, which I’ve never truly done before. Everything has been about breakup, or hurt, or whether I’ve felt it or not. But I never truly wrote a song about somebody confessing the way I felt, which is a terrifying thing to do.”

Excuse us, we’re a little choked up. Our chart topper is all grown up!!

Although, Shawn is trying to be more carefree these days, as he added:

“I feel like I grew up really fast from 15 to 18 in a very mature way. Now, there’s a next phase of maturity that I’m hitting which is, be less mature! You know? How important it is to not stress so much about yourself and not take yourself too seriously, and realize what’s goofy about you.”

Well said! Fingers crossed Hailey shares his low stress attitude.
