Kids these days grow up so fast, don’t they? It seems like just yesterday Biebs was making his starry appearance at Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2009 and now, 9 years later, he’s all famous and in love with none other than Alec Baldwin’s daughter. You are probably wondering how on Earth did that happen and, to tell you the truth, we were quite taken aback ourselves. And while this relationship may seem like something that happened out of the blue, there have been a few hints throughout the years that could’ve prepared us for this. Here’s everything you need to know about Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.
Not many people know this, but Justin and Hailey were actually introduced to each other by her dad, Alec Baldwin. The two met back in 2009 at the backstage of The Today Show.
The couple was later re-introduced to each other in 2011 at the premiere of Never Say Never. And again, all thanks to Alec Baldwin! Biebs announced his relationship with Selena Gomez a bit later that year.
Justin and Hailey have been hanging out together for quite some time just as friends.
She was definitely part of the gang! In 2014, fans started getting worried about them dating and Biebs had to assure them there was nothing going on, stating that the whole assumption was ‘crazy’. Things change, right?
In 2015, Bieber and Baldwin celebrated New Year together and a few months later got matching tattoos to honour Georgia, pastor Chad Veach’s daughter, who was born with Lissencephaly.
In summer 2015, the two went on what many believed to be a couple retreat, although Justin Bieber’s family was also present. Biebs made this playful Instagram post, saying that Baldwin thought they were making a photo.
2015 went out with a bang as the couple spent another New Year’s Eve together and as they kissed at Leonardo DiCaprio’s party it became pretty obvious that they were a ‘thing’.
The two got flirtier as time went by, exchanging fun and promising comments on Instagram. Biebs claimed that these pants belonged to him, to which Baldwin replied that they looked better on her. Well, they kind of do!
By the end of 2016 it was almost impossible to hide that the two were dating, so they kind of confirmed it in a number of separate interviews. Hailey stated that they weren’t exclusive as a couple and that it was all complicated.
Things obviously weren’t going smooth because the two ended up un-friending each other on social media, and Biebs started dating Sofia Richie. Not for long, but his ‘friendship’ with Hailey Baldwin was certainly broken.
They’ve stayed apart for a few years and finally reclaimed their friendship in May, 2018. After that things got blessedly straightforward as the two had a kissing session in Domino Park and spent a lot of time together not hiding from anyone.
Rumours started circling that Bieber and Baldwin were engaged and, finally, on the 9th of July Justin Bieber made a heart-warming Instagram post , confessing his love to Hailey Baldwin in a cute and beautiful way. He also confirmed the engagement rumours!
Now it seems the wedding is near and it might be sooner than we think!
