Justin Bieber had some great company helping him ring in his 27th birthday on Monday (March 1), including his wife Hailey Bieber and manager Scooter Braun.
Even though he’s no longer a baby, Braun recalled the very first time he heard Bieber sing live in a never-before-seen video. A then-teenage Bieber is seen playing guitar while belting his heart out and keeping his soon-to-be signature swoosh hairstyle tucked underneath a baseball cap.
“I had just picked you up from the airport (from your first flight ever… man how things have changed lol) and we went to my friends backyard and this happened,” his longtime manager wrote on Instagram. “We have been through so much together since and I could not be prouder of the man , friend, husband, and leader you are today. So to celebrate you I have finally shared this one. Enjoy. Happy 27th birthday big man and love you for life.”
Braun kept celebrating his “Day 1” by sharing more rare throwback pictures on his Instagram Story.
Meanwhile, Hailey showed she got somebody to love for life with a sweet series of pictures of the couple, including one from their 2019 wedding ceremony that highlighted her custom Off-White “TILL DEATH DO US PART” bridal veil that Virgil Abloh designed for her.
“Another year around the sun with you, another year of getting to love you, grow with you and laugh with you. Happy 27th birthday, you are my favorite human and I’m grateful to be by your side,” the 24-year-old model wrote.
She later posted more pictures, including one from her own 24th birthday last fall, and a video of him feeding a baby on her IG Story, writing “Happy Birthday My Love.”
Bieber is cruising into 27 with his upcoming single, “Hold On,” after he shared the cover art of him on a motorcycle today. The next single from his upcoming Justice album will be out this Friday.
Happy happy 27 @justinbieber ! Love you
