It feels like just yesterday fans were reeling from another Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez break-up. But those days are long gone as The Biebs is currently a married man, and not to Selena. Rather, as most fans know, Justin is currently married to Hailey Baldwin. The couple, who’d been dating on and off since 2016, confirmed their marriage in November 2018 after getting engaged in July. Hailey has since changed her last name to Bieber. She's updated all of her social media accounts and requested a trademark license.
Needless to say, fans have become obsessed with knowing all they can about Justin’s leading lady. Despite being one of the most popular models in the world, Hailey has maintained a pretty low-key life and almost always avoids drama (despite who her hubby is). That’s likely why Justin has said that his new wife has helped to ground and stabilize him after a few chaotic years. Despite the couple seemingly rushing into things, they seem happier than ever - and, if the rumours are true, they could be expanding their family in the near future.
Keep reading to discover what all fans need to know about Mrs. Bieber and her life with the famous pop star!
20 She And Justin Were Once In An Open Relationship
Justin and Hailey have been dating on and off since 2016. They might be totally serious about each other nowadays, but there was a time when they were more casual about their relationship. In fact, in 2016 the model admitted they weren’t exclusive.
"We are not an exclusive couple. He's about to go on tour," she told E! News at the time. "Relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don't really like to talk about it because it's between me and him."
She continued, "I live a very public life and I have to keep things personal or else I have no personal life. It's very difficult. I am very open on social media, but that's why I don't like to talk about certain things.”
19 She Used To Date Shawn Mendes
It wasn’t so long ago that fans were convinced Hailey was going to end up with a different singer - Shawn Mendes, to be exact. Although the pair never publicly acknowledged their relationship, they did walk the red carpet together several times and were constantly caught getting cozy by the paparazzi.
"I don’t even wanna put a title on it," Shawn has since said of his brief time with Hailey, Elle reports. "I think it was more of a zone of limbo." Of her moving on so quickly with Justin, he said, "I get it, you know. I texted Hailey, ‘Congratulations,’ [when they got engaged] and I really am happy for them."
18 She Says She And Justin Will Have Kids Soon
Even before she tied the knot, Hailey has been adamant about her desire to start a family. During an interview with Teen Vogue, she was asked what her goals for the future were. The model replied by stating she can’t wait to start a family.
“My biggest goal in life will be achieved when I have a family, when I have my own kids that I can raise myself and bring up based on what I know,” she told the publication. “I always think it's the wildest idea — raising a whole, entire human is insane to me, and I've always wanted kids.”
Hailey fans might not have to wait long as the model recently hinted that babies are definitely on their radar. "I love kids, and I can’t wait to have my own," she told Vogue last November. "I would say that now, that’s a closer reality."
17 She’s Thought About Divorcing Justin Before
Hailey and Justin have barely been married for a year, but evidently they’ve already gone through tough times. This past February, source said things were so rough for the young couple that they were actually considering pulling the plug on their marriage.
A source told Ok! Magazine that Hailey was genuinely considering divorce after she learned Justin reached out to his ex Selena Gomez. “[She wants to pull the] plug on her marriage to Justin after learning that he’s gone crawling back [to Selena],” they explained. “[She] realized that they rushed into marriage far too soon and that it’s not working.” Despite the reports, the couple remains together to this day.
16 They Didn’t Get A Prenup – And Justin Regrets It
Hailey and Justin definitely rushed into their marriage, as it was only months before their engagement that he was romancing his ex Selena Gomez. The couple got hitched so fast that they decided not to get a prenup. And since Justin is worth a lot more than his model wife, sources say he’s beginning to regret the brash decision.
“[He] brought up that he’s [worried] he doesn’t have a prenup,” an insider told Us Weekly. "[They have] some issues but are committed to working through them.” The source added that it was still possible for the newlyweds to sign a prenup and they were evidently already in talks with their lawyers about the possibility.
15 She Has A Matching Tattoo With Justin’s Ex
It seems like a lifetime ago, but there was a time when Justin was connected to Kendall Jenner. Who remembers when the tabloids said Selena was upset because the two were caught canoodling at Coachella? So, given the history, it seems a bit awkward that Kendall and Hailey have matching tattoos.
The two socialites have actually been friends for years, after growing up in the same social circle. A few years ago, the pair got red and white broken heart tattoos on the inside of their fingers. Hailey debuted their ink on social media. But we wonder if she regrets it now considering she’s married to her bestie’s ex.
14 She Goes To Extreme Lengths To Maintain Her Figure
Hailey’s cousin, fellow model Ireland Baldwin, has been open about her struggles with eating disorders. Due to her small build, many fans have wondered if Hailey has dealt with the same thing. While the celebrity has never publicly confirmed or denied the rumours, she has opened up about the extreme lengths she goes to in order to maintain her physique.
“I try to be very strict about eating just for my skin and my body,” she once told Elle. “I think drinking a lot of water helps. I try to drink, like, a couple [of] bottles throughout the day. I don’t know how many glasses that would amount to, but it’s important.”
13 She Makes Her Own Clothes
Given how wealthy she is, many fans assume Hailey spoils herself by buying only designer items. However, she once admitted that one of her favourite ways to get unique pieces is to simply make the clothes herself. We guess that’s why she has such a great sense of style!
"I love making shorts out of jeans, or customizing denim," she once said, Cosmopolitan reports. "Basically, I like to rip and distress things…I love that look. I’ll admit, I’ve had some [flops]—you know, you cut without measuring anything first, and then you’ve totally ruined a dress—but cutoffs are pretty easy."
12 Justin Almost Got Put Behind Bars For Hanging Out With Her
They say people do a lot of things for love, and it almost landed Justin in the slammer once! Last year, the singer was supposed to show up to a deposition for a lawsuit his former neighbour, Jeffrey Schwartz, had filed against him.
Justin had already been found guilty of insulting Schwartz. He had to pay $80,000 in restitution. This new lawsuit was brought by Schwartz in civil court as he said the previous case had caused him emotional stress.
According to TMZ, however, on the court date Justin was seen hanging out with Hailey instead. This prompted Schwartz’s legal team to request the singer not only receive time behind bars for failing to show up to the court date, but that Justin should also pay $1,000 for each day he prolonged the case.
11 She Was Caught Checking Out Justin’s Ex Online
All girlfriends get jealous of their boyfriends’ previous significant others. It’s also not uncommon for them to go searching for the other girls on social media. That’s evidently what Hailey did last fall shortly after she and Justin tied the knot.
E! News reported that Hailey had begun following Selena Gomez fan accounts on social media, which sent fans into a flurry. However, as soon as media outlets began reporting on the social media faux pas, the model unfollowed the fan accounts (although screenshots had already been taken). Neither Hailey nor Justin commented on the awkward incident.
10 She’s Known Justin Since She Was Really Young
Not only did Justin and Hailey date on and off for multiple years before tying the knot, but they’ve also known each other for over a decade. The celebrities actually first met back in 2009 when they were in their early teens, although they didn’t start dating until many years later.
"Justin and I were friends for a long time. I met him when I was really young and he was one of my best friends," Hailey dished to The Sunday Times in May 2018. "Everybody knows that at a certain point in time that turned into something else, but that just happens when you're 18, 19. It was what it was." She continued, "We went through a long period when we weren't friends.”
9 She’s Had A Stalker Before
Hailey was already famous before she tied the knot with Justin. But marrying the pop star has definitely brought her even more attention. So much so, the model and her husband have actually been stalked recently, which gives fans insight into the downsides of fame and fortune.
This past April, Hailey and Justin moved into their new $8.5 million Beverly Hills mansion - but it might not be long before they move out. Two weeks after moving in, the media reported that a female fan had already been arrested outside of their home. The news was even more startling as this happened three weeks after a woman was arrested for intruding in Justin’s Laguna Beach hotel room.
8 She And Justin Have Been Fighting A Lot
Justin and Hailey may only be newlyweds, but it sounds like reality has hit them hard. During their February 2018 Vogue cover, the couple opened up about the fact that they were already working through problems. What happened to the honeymoon stage?
“[Marriage is] really […] hard,” Justin told the publication. “We've been working through stuff. And it's great, right?” He added that moving in together put a strain on their relationship.
Hailey added, “He'll say, 'I feel,' and I'll say, 'I think.' I have to really dive deep and struggle to be in touch with my emotions. He gets there immediately.” Justin went on to describe himself as the “emotionally unstable one,” adding that his new wife provides him with a sense of stability.
7 Hailey Was Mostly Homeschooled
Evidently, being famous isn’t always easy. Hailey has admitted that she opted to be homeschooled after fellow students didn’t treat her the same because of her famous family. She’s said that it allowed her to have more of a normal, stress-free life.
"The thing that was annoying about having an uncle that's on 30 Rock is that kids don't understand it," the celebrity once explained, Billboard reports. "They’re like, ‘What?’ Then they’re like, ‘You have to go away to LA with your dad, what?’ And they didn’t get that. And that’s what I’ve struggled with my whole life, in school too.”
6 Her Dad Is Really Close To Justin
Hailey is reportedly very close to her dad, actor Stephen Baldwin. So, she’s probably pleased that he also is said to get along well with her husband. All the way back in 2016, Stephen told TMZ that he gave his blessing for Justin to date his then-teenage daughter.
Then, in July 2018, a source confirmed that the actor was even closer to his daughter’s significant other than ever. "Justin and Stephen have always had a close relationship, and Justin wanted to show his future father-in-law how serious he is about his future with Hailey," the insider dished to Entertainment Tonight.
5 She Thought She Was Going To Be A Ballerina
If you would’ve asked a young Hailey Baldwin what she wanted to be when she grew up, she likely would’ve said a ballerina. For most of her childhood, the star participated in dancing and developed a fondness for ballet.
There was a time when she thought she would go into it professionally, and modelling wasn’t even on her radar until a few years ago. She eventually had to give up the dream due to a foot injury.
"I used to be a ballerina so I like to do things that are in line with that," she once explained, Cosmopolitan reports. "I miss dancing so much, when I go watch a ballet, I cry because I miss doing it so much." We wonder if this means Hailey and Justin’s kids could have a career in dancing!
4 She’s Beginning To Branch Into Acting
Despite being well-known for her modelling work, it sounds like Hailey is trying to settle herself in the acting world. The celebrity co-hosts Drop The Mic alongside James Corden and Method Man. The music competition first debuted in 2017 and is based on a segment from James’ The Late Late Show With James Corden.
“There was one thing I actually got in a lot of trouble for during the filming,” Hailey has said of her experience filming for the show, as WWD reports. “I would be standing there, and Method would be talking, and [the producers] would be like, ‘Hailey – smile!’” She added, “I’m good with lyrics — I memorize everything. I’ll be in any party where there’s rap playing spitting all the words.”
3 Both She And Justin Are Religious
In the past few years, Justin has become increasingly open about the role his faith has played in helping him turn his life around. The star famously used to take his ex Selena Gomez to services at his favourite Hillsong LA Church. But since getting with Hailey, the two of them have been spotted on various occasions leaving the venue.
“I was raised in church. I was brought up in that life, and I think that it's very important for everybody to be in touch with their spirituality and to have a relationship with God,” Hailey once told Teen Vogue of her faith. “Not everybody is going to believe in the God that I believe in, but it's something that I'm not afraid to share with people because I know how it inspires me — how it positively affects my life.”
2 She’s A Musical Theatre Nerd
Hailey has always seemed like the epitome of a ‘cool girl.’ She’s fashion-forward, smooth with her words, and is married to one of the most popular guys on the planet. But as it turns out, the model’s interests are actually pretty relatable and not-so glamorous.
Once, Hailey admitted that she’s actually a huge theatre nerd. It definitely sounds like a dream of hers to star on Broadway (maybe she’ll settle for a hubby who does that?).
"In my spare time I like to act. I love theatre," Hailey once said, Cosmopolitan reports. "One thing a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’m obsessed with Broadway musicals and I trained for about seven years in musical theatre."
1 She Doesn’t Like Being Associated With Her Last Name
Hailey isn’t just known for her modelling work - she’s also known for being part of the famous Baldwin family. Both her father, Stephen Baldwin, and many of her uncles are actors, including Alec Baldwin. Even her cousins have become famous in their own right. Alec’s daughter Ireland is also a model.
However, Hailey has said numerous times that she wants to distance herself from her famous last name. "I want to do everything on my own without my name being a factor. I try to keep myself separate from it," she once said, Cosmopolitan reports. "Kids that already have a famous background are just following in their families’ footsteps. My dad and all of his brothers have done this. This is my family business."
