5 Things to Know About Hailey Baldwin

As you start off your week to the news of Justin Bieber's engagement, you might be curious about his fiancée Hailey Baldwin. The 21-year-old model has been in the Hollywood scene for quite a while, due to her family ties and own personal career ventures. 

The two have a complicated relationship that goes back to 2009, when Baldwin first met Bieber backstage at the Today Show. Since then, the two dated in 2015, before taking a break. Following Bieber's reconciliation with Selena Gomez and their break up earlier this year, Bieber and Baldwin started to be seen together more frequently in their common hangout spot, New York City. 

Now that Bieber put a (big) ring on it, here's everything you need to know about the potential future Mrs. Bieber.

1. She's a Member of THE Baldwin Family 

Her father is Stephen Baldwin, known particularly for his roles in The Usual Suspects and Born on the Fourth of July. You may know some of her famous actor uncles, Daniel Baldwin, William Baldwin and yes, Alec Baldwin. Her cousin Ireland, daughter of Alec Baldwin and his ex-wife Kim Basinger, is also a high profile fashion model and actress.

2. She Was Homeschooled

After eighth grade, Baldwin became homeschooled in order to live a more private life and get away from the constant attention that came with being in a famous family. 

"The thing that was annoying about having an uncle that's on 30 Rock is that kids don't understand it," Baldwin has said. "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.”

3. She Began Professional Modeling in 2014 

Baldwin got her foot in the modeling door in 2014 during a commercial debut in a campaign for French Connection. She signed to New York agency Ford Models in that same year. 

Baldwin then moved up the ranks in the modeling world, becoming the face of Guess in 2017 and participating in campaigns for Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hillfiger.

She also co-hosted the iHeart Radio Music Awards in March alongside DJ Khaled.

5. She's a Longtime Friend of the Kardashian/Jenner Fam

Baldwin is a close family friend of the Kardashians, and more specifically, of fellow model Kendall Jenner. The two work together often in various fashion campaigns and shows, and often post pictures together from the events.
