On January 3, 2016 this photo went VERY viral and the world was suddenly talking a whole lot about this Hailey Baldwin person.
We're Together... Sort Of
In separate interviews, Bieber and Baldwin both confirmed that they were in a non-exclusive relationship. "We are not an exclusive couple," Baldwin told E!. "He's about to go on tour. Relationships at this age are already complicated, but I don't really like to talk about it because it's between me and him." From there, Bieber reported to GQ that Hailey Baldwin is "someone I really love," but that he doesn't "want to be held down by anything.
And Then... Nothing
From about August 2016 through April 2018, Baldwin and Bieber either avoided each other or got REALLY good at keeping all content on the Down Low.
By July 2018, Hailey had broken up with Shawn Mendes and Bieber was finally, truly over Selena Gomez... when photos of these two kissing and holding hands started to pop up everywhere.
On July 9, 2018, Justin confirmed the couple's engagement, writing: "Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY."
On September 13, 2018, the stars really did tie the knot in a NYC courthouse. On November 15, Bieber finally confirmed news of his marriage by sharing a photo of himself and Baldwin. He captions it: "My wife is awesome."
