Everyone in the entertainment world knew that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin had dated, but no one had ever expected an engagement. Especially because of the way they talked about each other in the press.
In a recently resurfaced interview with The Times United Kingdom, while at the Cannes Film Festival, Hailey dished on why she and the Biebs would always be better off as friends.
Ironically, two months after the interview, she and the “Purpose” singer are getting ready to tie the knot. Baldwin said that she and Justin had “known each other for a long time,” and she had met him when she was really young.
According to the model, she and Justin dated but it wasn’t a big deal, because she was 18 or 19-years-old at the time, so it just came and went. Baldwin said, “we didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on,” but they eventually learned to “move past that.”
Due to the prolific and publicized nature of their romance, Baldwin, in addition to describing it as weird, said she and Justin decided they were better off as just friends.
She said it brought them to the “realization that we just work much better as friends.” As it was previously reported, several publications confirmed that they had gotten married on the 8th of July, Sunday.
Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude. ❤️

In a tweet that you can see above, Baldwin said she was so “utterly grateful to God” for giving her the gift of an incredible person to live with. As for what Stephen Baldwin thinks of it, he took to Twitter and lavished the news in praise, while even citing biblical passages.
As you may know, Stephen and his family are religious, as Justin is too. According to multiple reports, practicing religion has allowed Justin to grow as a person, and learn to mature, especially during the tumultuous years of his life when he was always getting into trouble.
