Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber are a powerhouse couple in the entertainment industry who’ve been married since 2018. But like everyone else, the duo have had ups and downs in their relationship, from the “are they or aren’t they” speculation, to rumors of the two seeing each other while he was dating Selena Gomez, to doubling the joy with two weddings, and more.
Their love story started simply and beautifully, with a backstage meeting at NBC’s TODAY show in 2009, thanks to an innocent introduction Hailey’s dad, actor Stephen Baldwin, made between his then 14-year-old daughter and the young pop star. Then just two years later, the two were photographed together on the red carpet at the premiere of his Never Say Never documentary.
A few years after that, the pop star’s social media posts led to fan speculation that the two were perhaps more than just friends, which both parties quickly denied. “I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise,” Bieber insisted on social media.
Though they refuted rumors of a romance, it wasn’t long before they were sharing holidays and vacations together. Come December 2015, it seemed there was no more denying it. Bieber shared a photo on Instagram of himself sharing a steamy kiss with the model.
He confirmed in a July 2018 Instagram post that the couple were engaged. “So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindly,” he wrote to the Rhode founder in his post.
Since getting married later that year, the two have endured baby talk and criticisms of their relationships, helped each other through terrifying health issues, and more.
