How Justin Bieber and Wife Hailey Bieber Turned Into Such a Candid Married Couple

They started off playing coy about tying the knot, but Justin and Hailey Bieber have been refreshingly honest about the highs, lows and challenges of marriage.
It’s OK to admit it: You didn’t kick off 2018 with “Justin Bieber will get married this year” on your bingo card.

But slowly—and then all at once—you invested a little piece of your heart in Justin and Hailey Bieber, who celebrated five years of holy matrimony in September.

So it’s possible you’re among the concerned parties wondering what, if anything, is up in light of Stephen Baldwin’s Instagram repost soliciting prayers for his daughter and son-in-law, who’s turning 30 on March 1.

While clarification has not been forthcoming on this matter, it’s usually best to wait and see what happens. Especially because, to date, the couple who started off so coy about whether they were indeed husband and wife have since been refreshingly real when it comes to detailing the ups and downs of married life.

“My favorite thing about being married is honestly the companionship I feel we have,” Hailey, 27, said in an early 2023 interview for Vogue Australia—conducted at the couple’s Beverly Hills home with her husband posing the questions. “Genuinely, you are my best friend in the entire world. There’s nobody I would rather spend more time with or do anything with.”

Justin kicked off the conversation by telling his wife he loved her—”Love you,” she said back immediately—and later noted that watching her build her Rhode skin care brand had been “the coolest.” She also divulged that one of the songs she couldn’t stop listening to was the one her husband just recorded, but “nobody knows what that is yet.”

Suffice it to say, Hailey and Justin don’t need to be in coordinated ensembles to show how in tune they are, having supported each other through respective health scares, social media toxicity, a global pandemic… Pretty much everything. (Including a lot of good stuff, like Hailey’s rise in the business world and Justin’s 13 Grammy nominations since they tied the knot. And he didn’t even need to get out of his sweats to cheer the launch of her strawberry-glaze Rhode lip treatment.)

“I just think life is changing all the time,” Hailey told Harper’s Bazaar in July 2022. “Day to day, week to week, year to year. I think a perfect example of that is over the last six months, both of us have gone through very serious health issues. You have to figure out how to deal with this s–t as it comes, you know? There’s a reason they say ‘for better or for worse.’ Like, that’s for real!”

But the “silver lining” of those challenges, she noted on Good Morning America, “is that it brings us a lot closer, ’cause you’re going through this together, you’re being there for each other, you’re supporting each other and there’s just something that really bonds you through these times.”

Of course, the at-times bumpy road they’ve been on since getting married—or perhaps since they first met backstage at the TODAY show in 2009 when Hailey was 12 and luxuriously coiffed Justin was 15—makes these epitomes all the sweeter.

“We had talked about wanting to be married young and having a family young and building a life,” Hailey told Elle for its April 2021 cover story. “But we always knew that we were aligned on what we wanted in our future. Even before we knew we wanted to be with each other.”

Still, even though Justin, then 23, asked for future father-in-law Stephen’s blessing to propose to his 21-year-old daughter, when she and Justin turned up engaged in July 2018—less than two months after rekindling their off-and-on relationship— it came as a bit of a surprise to the outside world. And then they went ahead and tied the knot at a New York courthouse two months later, letting the paper trail—and their apparent honeymoon in Italy—speak for itself.

But five months after their whirlwind nuptials (which were eventually supplemented with a dreamy destination wedding in South Carolina on Sept. 30, 2019), Mr. and Mrs. Bieber were ready to talk about marriage.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber’s Road to Marriage
“The thing is, marriage is very hard,” Hailey told Vogue for its March 2019 issue. “That is the sentence you should lead with. It’s really effing hard.”

While that might have made their still only months-old union sound a little tenuous at the time, it was really refreshing candor. Because there’s no law saying the honeymoon phase has to be perfect and if you’re not synched up with your spouse every second of every day you’ve failed at matrimony.

And Mr. and Mrs. Bieber were starting off under a massive spotlight, one that might have been looking for shady nooks in the beginning but ultimately illuminated a partnership that has surpassed many jaded expectations.

Reflecting on why assorted naysayers may have had a difficult time wrapping their heads around the couple’s fast-track to forever, Hailey said on Alex Cooper’s Call Her Daddy podcast in September 2022 that she could see, in hindsight, why it was hard to Belieb in the beginning.

“I think the timing was obviously very rapid and very fast, which now, being four years past that, looking back on it, I totally get it,” Hailey said. “I’m like, ‘Yeah, that seemed really drastic and really crazy.’ But that was what we felt was a decision between the two of us and it felt correct for the two of us at the time and clearly we were right because here we are four years later.”

Not to mention, just because the world at large wasn’t intimately familiar with their trajectory didn’t mean that she and Justin didn’t know what they were doing.

Justin admitted to Vogue in 2019 that he was the “emotionally unstable one” in the relationship, more in need of validation than his model bride.

“Hailey’s very logical and structured, which I need,” the “What Do You Mean?” singer explained. “I’ve always wanted security—with my dad being gone sometimes when I was a kid, with being on the road. With the lifestyle I live, everything is so uncertain. I need one thing that’s certain. And that…is my baby boo.”

Hailey acknowledged that she was still learning how to “be in touch” with her emotions, while Justin “gets there immediately.”

Talking to Vogue, it had been less than a year since their chance reunion in Miami sparked forever vibes in Justin’s heart.

“I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made on my life,” he explained. “I was like, Holy cow, this is what I’ve been looking for.”

Still, getting hit with the thunderbolt didn’t automatically fix everything else in his life. And he kinda had been hoping it might…

“I remember when I first got married, I hit a little bit of an emotional breakdown because I thought marriage was going to fix all my problems and it didn’t,” Justin shared on The Ebro Show in the spring of 2022. “It just kind of was a reflection of, like, ‘You’re a bit of a hypocrite man. Like, you want your wife to do something that you’re not doing.’ And it’s like, I mean, it’s hard sometimes to look in the mirror and really have to realize, ‘Man, maybe you’re not the person that you necessarily thought that you were.'”

In early 2019, he sought out-patient treatment for depression, a source telling E! News at the time that Hailey was serving as “the rock” for him and “doing whatever she can to help.”

Amid her stated efforts to be more in touch with her emotions, she posted on Instagram that January that she was working on being “more vulnerable.”

And, she wrote, “The truth is no matter how amazing life may look from the outside I struggle…I’m insecure, I’m fragile, I’m hurting, I have fears, I have doubts, I have anxiety, I get sad, I get angry.”

They had also been to counseling together, “fighting to do this the right way, to build a healthy relationship,” Hailey told Vogue around that same time. “I want people to know that. We’re coming from a really genuine place. But we’re two young people who are learning as we go. I’m not going to sit here and lie and say it’s all a magical fantasy. It’s always going to be hard. It’s a choice…But there’s something beautiful about it anyway—about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone.”

On The Biebers on Watch, Justin reiterated to his wife that there were “a lot of things” he still needed to work on when they first got married. “Forgiveness things. Jealousy things. Insecurities that…I didn’t even realize I had until I chose to spend my life with you.”

But putting in the work is… well, it’s working.

“He’s still the person that I wanna be rushing back to,” Hailey told Harper’s Bazaar. “I might fly somewhere and go do a job, but I can’t wait to come back and hang out.”

I love you with every fiber of my being. HAPPY 5TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!”

Engagement Announcement
In July 2018, Justin confirmed his engagement to Hailey in a lengthy Instagram post. “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,” he captioned this photo. “My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first,” he continued. “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment each other so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!”

Ride or Die
Once again, these two are absolutely slaying the relationship goals! “Go best friend that’s my best friend,” Justin captioned the pic.

Earlier in December, the A-lister took to Instagram to shut down any dating speculation between him and Hailey. “People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise,” he wrote. Hmmmmm. Foreshadowing much?

Back in 2014, Hailey and Justin were cool and coordinated, rocking LA Clippers gear as they hung out together as friends.
